Stadtpfeiffe is Is a small restaurant in the Gewandhaus complex where every detail is considered. Our welcome was warm as our coats were taken. We were led to a large table that overlooked the room. Offers of champagne or sekt were quick. We chose a sekt from the region as we’re not likely to ever see Leipzig sekt anywhere else.... More

This was a special occasion meal which excelled expectations and will be fondly remembered as one of the best meals we have ever had. We opted for a 4 course menu with each dish elegantly served and cooked to perfection. The outstanding dish was Spring Veal, chanterelles and bok choy, The Spaghetti, octopus and pernod was exceptionally good. A truly... More

When visiting Leipzig treat yourself to a super friendly gourmet experience. I came here with a small opera group and we had an outstanding meal with all sorts of extras from the young couple who own and run the restaurant. I had all sorts of food that never occurred to me as gourmet but they were indeed: char, pikeperch, cabbage... More

We had a 6 course dinner in this 1 star Michelin restaurant. However, the restaurant before, between and after also serves small Amuse Bouche, so I believe we ended up with at least 11 "courses". It will go to far to describe it all, it must be tried. Everything was made by the best raw materials, with care for the... More

This is a one Micheline star restaurant hidden in August platz. This is by far one of the best meals that I have ever had. Everything the service, food presentation, combination of flavors and food quality was outstanding!!- You can have the four, five or six course menu and I assure you will not be disappointed. It is not cheap... More

Had a fine business meal here. Food excellent and service highly professional. Hard to get into. We totally missed the door and ended up in the car park and round the side of the place. All 6 in our party missed the entrance!

Stadtpfeiffer is still the second-best restaurant in Leipzig (after Falco) and has deservedly held on to its one Michelin star for some years now. This wasn't a stellar evening, but the food was very good, and a couple of dishes (pigeon liver; eel confit in green cabbage) were superb. As ever, expensive at 180 Euros per person (with wine but...

This is a remarkable restaurant, proably the best in Leipzig, but not as beautifully turned out and located as Falco (in The Westin). Perfect, fresh, food; excellent service, OK wine list (but that's not the point here). An amazing achievement in a town where there are hundreds of mediocre restaurants. Expensive, but worth every penny.
