In der ehemaligen Landschreiberei mit Registratur und Buchhaltung gehen heute Feinschmecker und Liebhaber der schw��bischen K��che ein und aus. Auf der Karte stehen hausgemachte, schw��bische Gerichte mit internationalen Akzenten. Von kreativen Salaten und raffinierten Suppen ��ber leichte Snacks und Fischgerichte bis hin zum authentischen schw��bischen Hauptgericht wird f��r jeden Geschmack etwas geboten. In der Einrichtung und in der K��che treffen sich altbew��hrte und neue Ideen.

This is a very busy restaurant located on the Castle Square in Stuttgart. On arrival, we were ignored by the wait-staff for quite a long time before being (finally) greeted and shown to an available table. The tables were packed in tight and the ambiance was lively. The service we received was mixed. One young waiter was friendly and did... More

The food is good, but nothing special. But the prices are out of all proportion. We were there with a party of 16 (including 4 children and a baby). Even through we had reserved well in advance and had asked for a quiet corner, we were put right in the busiest place, so the children were in the way whenever... More

We had a delicious soup and salad at this restaurant. There is a outdoor beer garden which was full of locals watching the world cup. We had walked through the central shopping district of Stuttgart looking for a restaurant where the locals ate and found it at Alte Kanzlei. It was a good choice.

Seven years after my last visit, I was delighted that the food at Alte Kanzlei was as delicious as I remembered! Set back from Schlossplatz in a shady corner, the outside seating was perfect for a sunny Sunday lunchtime. Food was very tasty and the staff equally as chatty and attentive in English as in German. Possibly owing to its... More

We were offered a choice of tables and drinks to start with. We had plenty of time to relax and choose our lunch. This turned up in good time and tasted nice. The follow on service including a discussion of local attractions etc was brilliant.

Traditional restaurant in the center of Stuttgart. Good menu card, single women are welcome. Long history of the building opposite of the old castle. Great program for football fans.

The restaurant is well located in the centre of Stuttgart, right on the square by Palace Square and has great outdoor seating and a great atmosphere. They also offer an English menu which is quite helpful. However they are very pricing compared to some other options and we were expecting a bit more for the price - food wasn't that... More
