"Customer is King " doesn't apply here! I arrived quite early 17.00 with my elderly parents wanting to show them something typical of Leipzig . We weren't made welcome at all . Told we had to leave in an hour . If it was me I would have left immediately but poor mum and dad were tired so we stayed... More

This wasn't a particularly pleasant experience. The Auersbachs Keller's business model seems to be getting customers through the process, taking their money, and showing them the door as quickly as possible. The model clearly works, because the restaurant was packed (with tourists), but it's a shame that they don't have any incentive to up their game and stop relying on... More

Even if you don't really have enough time ro go there, go there, they are quick, almost impolitely quick - that was our impression. Or the other way around: if you want to experience efficiency, watch and learn! Food was good, pricy though - value for money is acceptable.

I think this place is a" must " if you are eating in Leipzig- a vast cellar which has been there for centuries and deserves to be for centuries to come. A huge bustling place with arched vaults.Goethe has Mephistopheles bewitching students in the place. We ate unscathed. Best to book- it is very busy and ,despite what guide books... More

I don't understand the occasional poor review of Auerbachs Keller. It's a wonderful space. A ‘must see’ in every guide book. And of course Goethe used it as a location in his writing. So the place could be forgiven for simply resting on its laurels. Yet night after night (we ate on two successive evenings) it's packed not with bug-eyed... More

It is quite a special place with the Faustian theme in the centre of Leipzig. Good beer, nice food, although quite hectic and large.

This venue is not what you expect on stairs leading down from a modern shopping centre. The dining hall is vast and obviously very popular and decorated with scenes from Fausts work. The menu is a celebration of Saxony (and English menus are available with some quirky translations). There is a lot to choose from and a lot of it... More
