In a few words, probably the best fish restaurant in Saxony. Starters were creative and very tasty, main course also very good. Absolutely gorgeous location in an ancient palais. Extremely friendly and attentive service, good selection of wines. Better pre-book a table, we've been there on a Monday evening,and the place was almost full.

Definitely for us the best restaurant in the old town center of Dresden. Very elegant decorated with interesting paintings in the main dining room. Friendly and efficient service. Enjoyed very much the Truffespaghettini which was traditionally prepared at our table and the Dorado was also excellent. A joyful and good ending of a pleasant two day stay in Dresden.

What a surprise! Beautiful location & sleek decoration, perfect service, a good selection of wines and the fish dishes are excellent. Interesting deserts - try the granite. Kastenmeiers is one of the top restaurants in Dresden. ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED

We had reservations at Kastenmeier's, based on a NY Times review. My husband is especially fond of sea bream or Dorade Royale. He ordered it grilled, although it can also be prepared baked in salt. The meal was so good we went back the next evening! We tried the Chef's fish sampler and also the Wiener Schnitzel- all very well... More

As a lone diner, I was finding it a little awkward going in to a restaurant alone. In fact,it's intimidating, especially when, in some establishments, they take it upon themselves to assume you simply must be with someone, and so they ignore you until that "someone' appears (yes, I am female). In the end, I thought, I will book this... More

Our hosts in Dresden took us there for a special treat on our last night. The first impression is that this restaurant is indeed special, being in such a stunning building. There is an indoors and...

We had a very pleasant evening here. We were served by three different staff, two of whom were excellent and friendly but one who seemed to look on us as a bother. This was a bit of a damper. The food is very well prepared. It is sometimes surprising such as it's bouillabaisse which turned out to be a white... More
