Or meal consisted of 2 slices of a lamb joint that had been cooked and allowed to go cold-then warmed up in some synthetic gravy plus frozen vegetables.
The staff were pleasant

“Hearty traditional food in cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We went on a Friday night and sat upstairs as the outside space and downstairs was full. We had a really efficient and friendly waitress and loved the cosy atmosphere here. The food was typical saxony and German fare and really tasty. We really enjoyed our meal here.

“better for ambiance than food”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

The restaurant is very central and is a typical old Saxon style place with German specialities which were good if not brilliant. It is certainly somewhere to go if you want to experience German rather than international cooking. The knuckle of pork with dumplings was delicious although heavy. Large portions and good beer!
The service was initially slow and we were kept waiting for a good ten minutes before anyone gave us a menu. However having pointed this out we received friendly , smiling service which was efficient and with English menus . These helped a lot!
Zils is typical Saxon, and worth a try when you are in Leipzig to enjoy a typical German restaurant with dumplings, boiled potatoes or noodles!!

“Go for the atmosphere, not for the food!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

It's a traditnonal restaurant in Leipzigs gastro street "Barfussgaesschen" and the atmosphere and interieur is still the same than 200 years ago, when the craftsmen came here after work. You find many local, traditional dishes on the menu, but in poor quality, for example, the famous "Leipziger Allerei", a dish made of fresh vegetables, morcheln and cancer meat, we found one mushroom and one cancer, most of the other dishes were deep fried.

“Ambience and Good Food”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

It was -12C outside, but inside it was warm and cosy. I wouldn't say the staff were as welcoming as we encountered elsewhere in Leipzig, but they were polite and friendly enough and the food and wine was really good - and very the portions were extremely generous. My husband also tried the Gose beer, which has a slightly herbal taste, but is quite refreshing and unusual. I preferred the regional red wine.
