We chose the "Alte Kanzlei" for our annual family Christmas dinner based on some positive experiences in the past when we stopped by this very centrally located restaurant in the city centre of Stuttgart. We were always impressed with high quality local fare served by friendly and professional service personnel at a very fair price. So, we thought "what could... More

My favorite restaurant in Stuttgart. We try to go on every visit. I usually get the Stuttgarter Filetteller. Recently the flädle soup is better --- it used to be intolerably salty (and I love salt). My husband's go to, the linsen und spätzle, is very tasty too. Service on this most recent visit was speedy - speedier than in the... More

Myself German living abroad, I do not miss the German cuisine. But here it was done so well I was glad my friends took my here. Good cooking, though the place was chock-a-block, and good service, with dishes typical for the area. Try the Sauerbraten.

Our family of four (2teens) ate here for dinner. Great service - attentive and nice - unlike some experiences of other reviewers. The food was served efficiently and was great! The teens had the Stuttgarter Filletteller, my husband and I split the sauerbraten and the lentils with frankfurters. All were fantastic!

This is very nice you but the meal/Food was only OK. I had the traditionell Käsespätzle. Also the other members... More

This is a nice place where we had both a coffee early and returned for lunch. The inside morning service was very good and the afternoon outside lunch service was minimal at best. The food was quite good, Schwabian speicalties emphasized. I had a salmon plate on a potato pancake, for this the three forms of salmon were all good,... More

A lively setting just off the Schlossplatz, with outdoor seating, this restaurant offers a good taste of German cuisine and has a seasonal menu that highlights locally procured foods. Although dessert was not spectacular, the salad and main courses were all excellent in quality and quantity.

I selected this restaurant by walking around central Stuttgart and noting what looked attractive, as I like first to 'read' a restaurant from the outside. I then looked it up on TripAdvisor and noted the various comments there are below. The location of the restaurant is one of its strong points, even in the dark. It is also very popular,... More
