Decent hotel breakfast for an amazing price: Reck’s Hotel-Restaurant (22. July 2018)

The breakfast selection (and you only pay EUR 5.00) for the breakfast is limited but prepared with care. You find a lot of typical German ‘dishes’ which are quite heavily meat based. But there is also more to it like cold cuts, cheeses, and vegetables. A small selection of different breads is available … … […]

Lovely atmosphere, very caring personnel: Reck’s Hotel-Restaurant (21. July 2018)

I am a huge fan of Starwood and its hotels as they come with certain perks. However, in Salem there is no Starwood hotel (obviously!). So, I decided to go for the place which is ranked highest on TripAdvisor which was the Hotel Reck’s. And I must admit that it is quite a lovely place. […]

Humongous German portions – food for a family: Restaurant Aquarama (21. July 2018)

Humongous German portions – food for a family: Restaurant Aquarama (21. July 2018)

I keep getting surprised every time I go to Germany – the portions are just humongous. I went for a “herb salad with goat cheese and chanterelles” (EUR 12.50) and the thing was incredibly huge. And this was supposed to be a starter. The dish itself was fine, nothing special and some of the chanterelles […]

“Cash only” food joint with great halloumi cheese: Restaurant Orange Box (20. June 2018)

“Cash only” food joint with great halloumi cheese: Restaurant Orange Box (20. June 2018)

The Restaurant Orange Box is in thus far a typical German restaurant as you cannot pay your food with any type of debit or credit card. Only cash is allowed. I went for the “mat role with halloumi cheese” (EUR 5.90) which was decent in flavor and the food was served still hot so the […]

Lovely view over Dresden and the chance to ride a lorry: Restaurant Luisenhof (3. June 2018)

Lovely view over Dresden and the chance to ride a lorry: Restaurant Luisenhof (3. June 2018)

In the area of “Weisser Hirsch” (which means ‘white deer’) there are a lot of nice old houses of the nobles. And the area is incredibly lovely and yet quiet, perfect to stroll a bit through the neighbourhood after you’ve taken the little trolley (ride of about 3 minutes) to reach the top. Once you’ve […]

A bit in the outskirts but worth visiting: Wintergartencafé @ Schlosshotel Pillnitz (3. June 2018)

A bit in the outskirts but worth visiting: Wintergartencafé @ Schlosshotel Pillnitz (3. June 2018)

At first, I only wanted to take a glass of water after walking in the sun through the beautiful park Pillnitz. Given the waiter was jovial and friendly without being intrusive or the like, I decided to actually spend some more time there and went for a “portion of asparagus from Nieschütz served with butter, […]

Great food and service – suboptimal location: Restaurant Genuss-Atelier (2. June 2018)

Great food and service – suboptimal location: Restaurant Genuss-Atelier (2. June 2018)

The Restaurant “Genuss-Atelier” is ranked as the best restaurant in the city according to TripAdvisor. While I think there is still room for improvement, I must admit, it definitely deserves to be in the top 10 (and I’ve only tried no. 4 at the time). I went for the “Four Course Menu – Vegetarian” (EUR […]

Lovely place, weird service: Café Carolaschlösschen (2. June 2018)

If you stroll through the “Grosser Garten” (great garden), you eventually end up at one of the lakes. At one of them, there is a little castle with a garden where you can stop for a drink which I decided to do. I went for the “home-made lemonade (raspberry basil)” (EUR 5.50) as well as […]
