The restaurant serves classic dishes from Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic, as well as kultige Cocktails und Signature-Twists gepaart mit Steaks und erwachsenen Burgern.

Assortment of drinks
As for drinks, diners can start their meal with one of five signature cocktails created by the cocktail culture team at Röseling Leipzig. These cocktails are created by mixing classic recipes from all over Germany with local ingredients such as light Leipzig lager beer and spicy Schwalbenschwänze sausages. Other alcoholic drinks on the menu include traditional German beer and spa water flavored with lemon or elderflower. Soft drinks include frothy Bavarian cocktails and creamy pancakes filled with fruit or whipped cream. Since all of these appetizers are meant to accompany meals, not cocktails, guests can choose whether they want their drinks to help them unwind after a tiring day or energize them for an eventful evening.
Signature snacks at Röseling Leipzig consist of traditional meat dishes with steaks and mature burgers from local meat farms. Meats include chicken liver served with spa water whipped cream and beef burgundy served with spa maccarone potatoes drizzled with brown sauce.
