This is in the Zwinger Building attached the Gemaldagalerie Alte Meister, across from the Semperopera We had a reservation but I'm not convinced you need it. It is a small menu so if you are picky I would not recommend this place. We loved it, the staff was lovely.

I had my New Year's dinner at Alte Meister after the opera. A very tasteful 3-course dinner (5-course was the max). The New Year's dinner was the only choice, for obvious reasons. Ecellent personnel, nice ambiance. And the price, compared to Switzerland, where I come from, was very decent.

We retraced our route to the elegant Alte Meister restaurant next to the art gallery where Cathy and I shared the first course of scallops with black lentils strudel. I had a superb fillet of salmon in lemongrass sauce with purple potatoes whilst Cathy had marinated tuna with roulade of scampi. For pudding we shared almond mousse with saffron. It... More

Arriving in Dresden late in the evening we had no idea where any eating places were. We stumbled on Alte Meister and were not disappointed. The dishes are on the pricey side but well worth the money. The food was cooked to perfection. The service was also very good which made for a great welcome to Dresden.

About 40 yds from the historic Dresden Opera House in a wing of the famous Zwinger Museum, this delightful spot is a wonderful refuge. Small and with a relatively brief menu, the service is excellent, the ambiance mellow, and the food outstanding. The weather was just at the end of a historic heat wave when we dropped in withoug a... More

Our family of sixteen were just on a family roots trip to Germany. This was one of the restaurants that was prearranged for us to have dinner. We had to preorder our meal from a list of four choices for each course so I have no idea what it's like to just go there and order from a menu. We... More

I came to this cafe for a coffee pit stop because it had an amazing outdoor ambience. But I was disappointed by the bad service and rude waitress. We sat outside and ordered two pots of coffee and the waitress gave us an annoyed look. I don't know if she was racist to Asians or just hates her job. I... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to get a table for dinner without a reservation. Our meal was delicious. For starters we had the beetroot crepe stuffed with cheese and Jerusalem artichokes. For main course I chose the sea bass. The food was beautifully cooked, every flavor delicately balanced. The presentation matched the taste: it was exquisite. If you... More
