It has spacious minalamist dining area, I liked that the tables are not densely packed, so you are not buffeted by passing waiters , other guests and so can really settle at your table. The contemporary art on the wall tis interesting enough that you can spend time discussing , rather than just being bemused. The Staff were welcoming and... More

Pricey but worth it! The service could be faster (we were the only ones in the restaurant and we had to wait at least 25 minutes between each course) but the atmosphere is nice and the waiting staff was very friendly.

My wife and I sat down for a lovely dinner at Max Enk on a Saturday night in June, our last on our trip to Germany. We were sitting on the patio, we had order the calf's liver and the Leipziger allerlei, both of which were very well prepared and tasted excellent. Then the sky open up and a torrential... More

It doesn't have a Michelin rosette (yet), but it comes with a Michelin recommendation of 'good standard', and it is certainly that and more. Max Enk has a cool and stylish pale grey interior, with white napery and dark bent-wood chairs that add a lightness to dining. It's true, it isn't the two-rosette Falco atop Leipzig's rather vulgarly tall Westin... More

I visited the restaurant based on the recommendations of my hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and courteous, though for a vegetarian, I found the smell a little to excessive. There is very little to eat for a vegetarian and the only option was Veg Garganelli. Soon a bread platter followed along with what suspiciously looked like minced meat. Since... More

Although our food was fine, it was nothing to write home about. The service was attentive but not warm or very welcoming. I found the avant garde decor to be very distracting and almost unsettling - like I suddenly found myself in the movie Beetlejuice. It was not the most tranquil of places. The wine list was good and was... More

What would happen if the entire place was filled ? My husbands ravioli appetizer came after we all had finished the first course, Waited so... More

Best in Leipzig. Tranquil, elegant, this is a place to come and talk over dinner and enjoy your wine. They are keen to make sure they aren't rushing you, a nice change from the US where urning the tables is many places chief concern. Dinner here twice. On both occasions there was a (different) single female business woman enjoying a... More

For fine food and ambience in Leipzig look no further. We found Max Enk by analysing tripadvisor reviews, and our hotel concierge, Uwe at the lovely Steinberger Hotel, confirmed it was one of his favourite restaurants for guests. Young and personable staff, warm welcome at the door, and then shown to a very spacious and slightly minimalist dining area which... More
