Perfect neighbourhood restaurant May 27, 2017
I cannot recall how often I ate here with friends or family. Schillergarten is your typical neighbourhood hangout place with hearty food, generous portions, nothing fancy but excellent quality. They serve regional/German food, have a nice wine list and very tasty beer. The service is always very good, friendly and attentive.

The location right next to the Blue Wonder bridge and right by the Elbe river is fantastic. In summer you can sit in their self-service beergarden under the trees or on the terrace with service, both with view of the river, or you have a table inside where you can choose the cosy room with dark wood panels or the wintergarden with view of the bridge. For the latter make reservations at least a week in advance, especially for dinner hours.

I've had too many meals here to remember exactly what I ate. Their cakes are very good, especially the fancy "Haustorte", I like the tea a lot and their coffee is also excellent, be it Wiener Melange or Latte Macchiato.

The standard list aside, they always have a daily changing menu list as well - fresh and according to the season/day. I often pick from the daily menu - asparagus in spring (yummy!), venison in fall (delicious). Specialties are the giant Viennese Schnitzel (yes, it's veal and huge) and the potato soup e.g. I've never been disappointed. Once I had a grilled pork steak with onions and french fries in the beergarden, an ice cream "to go", but also a full meal - always yummy.

good middle-class dishes in a wonderful surrounding May 15, 2008
I may a bit biased, because my brother works there, but I have to say, sitting on the terrace, sipping a tea and looking at the steam paddlers on the river Elbe, is fantastic.

The Schillergarten, named after Friedrich Schiller (a german writer), who visited this restaurant a lot. He even wrote about the beautiful daughter if the owner in one of his works (Gustel of Blasewitz in 'Wallenstein').

It's history reaches back to 1683, when it was an 'electoral pub', so it's one of the oldest restaurants in Dresden.

- terrace (Biergarten)

- bar

- own pastry shop

- playground for children

- accessable for handicapped people

- dogs allowed

The menu contains a good selection of german/saxon dishes and the wine card has a lot of regional wines.

I can only say, swing by, even if it's only for a sausage or a coffee.
