This restaurant forms part of the old town hall (hence the name) and is strategically located overlooking the old market square, where the remnants of the previous week's spring beer festival were still being dismantled. Typical, traditional German/Saxony food served here in the main (we...More

Hungry in the middle of Leipzig, we found this restaurant, found where all eight of us could sit, and ordered drinks from a wide variety. The food menu was typically German, including a wide variety of Saxon food typical of the region. Service was efficient,...More

Food was way below average, wanted to send it back. The Keautwickel was just bland, the salad had no sauce (not worth 13€ at all). Don’t go there!!

The location is ideal and it is right in the city center. The food is good but the service is really terrible to say the least. The impression we have is that we are not there, it takes ages for everything, so I wouldn't recommend...More

We visited this place for beer. It's the only place serving Ur-Krostitzer Zwickelbier (as far as I know). We didn't eat. The building is really beautiful. The waitress didn't speak/understand a word English but we managed with my bad German.

We had a lunch here as we wanted to eat in the old city hall. While the location was great and a nice place to watch the Market Place activity, the same cannot be said for the service. The service was mediocre at best and...More
