A useful option for snacks, breakfasts &c. Long opening hours and a sensible menu offering. Staff seem engagingly eccentric.

I had a fabulous super foods salad (too few vegetables during my travels) and the beer was cold. The view was pretty nice too. This was the only encounter where my lack of language skills was held against me.

Thanks a lot for you nice review :) We have loads of tourists in the Alsterpavillon who don't speak German, so this should't be a problem at all...? Sorry if it was, though :( Nicole

We ate outside at the café, located in the prime tourist area of Dresden. It was hopping with tourists and locals. The food was pretty good - I had the bruschetta which wasn't exactly like I'd pictured it, but was good all the same!

We stopped in for lunch in the lovely outdoor setting. The limeade was tasty and they were up front that food would take a long time. It actually came quicker than they stated but the food was average at best. The drink was large and...More

We went to this place for dinner. There are plenty of tables both inside and out. The menu is extensive and they have an amazing range of desserts. We shared a flambé kuchen as a starter. Followed by a hamburger. These were all delicious. We...More

Lousy service, rude staff and average, at most, food. We finished our breakfast before thhe coffee came (after 20 min!) No excuses, what so ever, from the waitress though. The place, and straff, seems to be a disorganized chaos!More

Breakfast buffet at €10 must be the best deal in town. Very popular, so reserve on rainy days. Seating inside is limited. We also had dinner here once. Generally food is good, not special. The same can be said of the many restaurants near old...More

Situated on a large square it is a lovely terrace to sit down for a lunch. Although the terrace is very large there is not an area designated for non smokers, so anywhere you sit your air can be polluted by someone next to you....More

We ate and drank here twice. Nice to sit outside and listen to the buskers while enjoying a beer and watch the passersby.
