Zill's Tunnel is an old fashioned (in a good sense) German restaurant, along Barrfussgässchen. This street is lined with restaurants and bars, so there is plenty of competition. The food is OK but not special. I had fricassee of chicken and peas with "risotto" . The risotto was not risotto as I know it, but more like "sticky rice". My... More

This is a lively restaurant with good service, prices and good food! On weekends especially through the year it is advisable to have reservations and always so during summer months. Great dessert selections too!

We have visited here on 2 occasions during our 7 days in Leipzig. Both have been quite enjoyable. The food is reasonably expensive and on the whole very good. Only a seafood salad was very sparse with a plate of white baguette and lettuce and a very small amount of mixed fish. A salad with chicken and pineapple yesterday was... More

Our group of 12 was easily accommodated by the exceedingly friendly and helpful staff. Several party members returned later in the week for another memorable dining experience. Do order dessert. If the menu choices are not enough, check out the display case inside the restaurant.

It is good to sit on the terrace. The food is delicious, and you can find a number of local dishes on the menu.

most people come to see and be seen - even good for 'just drinks' - food is a bit better than average - service a bit varied too. Got annoyed when being told that tap-water was not being served as they sold mineral-water (did consume ample bottles of wine as well) - restaurant policy ...! Maybe that needs a review... More

At first, we had planned to eat at Spizz but when we were arrived, it was full so we had to find another restaurant and just by few steps we found Zill's Tunnel. Our group has 7 people but I only took picture of 2 dishes. Sorry guys :)) I ordered lamb steak with string bean and bacon, tomato. It... More

A very typical German restaurant on a perfect location in the Barfuss alley. There are many restaurants in the alley and this one was one of the few German ones. We took a glass of very nice local Gose beer. As the main course we went for a typical German disk: Matjes hering with Bratkartoffeln. All very nice!

I was a bit wary of going to this restaurant, which is bang in the middle of Barfuszgassen, Leipzig's tourist street. But a friend had told me that despite this, the food made it worth going to. The menu looked promising enough, and even though the servers had that trademark impersonal stare that goes with a tourist-trap restaurant, I persevered.... More
