Special restaurants in Dresden

With all the leisure activities, you get one thing above all: hungry. Fortunately, no one has to wander the streets of Dresden with a rumbling stomach; there are countless restaurants and street food. Among them are some very special or unusual places. So if you're looking for a special culinary experience, you should definitely try one of the following restaurants!

Rollercoaster Restaurant

Don't worry, you don't have to eat your meal here during a roller coaster ride! Instead, the dishes have to undergo a wild ride. And that's a real spectacle. So in this restaurant, besides delicious food and drinks, the focus is on the entertainment factor. A must-see and must-experience!

Genuss Atelier

Here you can eat in style between natural stone walls. But of course, you don't just come here for the special location, but above all for the delicious tasting menus. The fine dishes on the menu change regularly and are accompanied by exquisite wines on request. Très chic! 


If you fancy hearty, traditional German cuisine in a rustic ambiance, you should take a detour to the SchillerGarten. The restaurant has been attracting foodies from all over Germany since 1730. In summer you can enjoy the beer garden.

ALEX at the castle

The ALEX is also known in other cities. It is particularly convincing because of its diversity: here you can get meals to suit any time of day and it is not only a restaurant but also a café or bar - just as you need it! So you really can't go wrong here.

Gaststätte Oma

Always in the good parlor! We were particularly taken with this restaurant: Gaststätte Oma lives up to its name. The cozy furnishings really give you the feeling of sitting in grandma's living room. The typical Saxon dishes also taste as good as they did at Grandma's. Incidentally, the Homage restaurant and the Opa wine cellar are also part of the same concept.


This shabby-chic restaurant is located in the middle of Neustadt and its style fits perfectly into the trendy district. You'll find a place in the café, in the vaults, or, in summer, outside in the garden. A glance at the menu will make your mouth water!
