Great location and fish dinner was delicious.

Sitting outside and making the most of a warm spring evening....it would have been more perfect if not so many people were smoking. We ordered two seafood dinners...one was "Gilthead" fish and it was delicious. the other was a smoked salmon on potato pancakes -- quite good, as well. Waiter was... read more

I had a good meal here, for a good price. The atmosphere is nice, the interior is quite modern, and not dark and cozy as you might expect from the name. Beer selection is quite small, but this is normal in this general area. Food is good, but not the best traditional German food I have had.

My fault. I had, based on memories, expected a first class restaurant. Times have changed. It still is a good tourist restaurant, with a large choice of menus, and substantial servings. I missed a good service, especially when you invite friends for a dinner.

Location is very central and one gets a feel of openness outside the restaurant. Beer is good and so were starters .Salads, Salmon or, goulash all turned out fine. Service was reasonably prompt. The place can be a bit noisy inside and going to Restroom may require climbing down stairs. but overall a good Experience. was third visit for me... More

It was a lovely day and we were able to make the most of it and sit at one of the many tables set outside. Clearly it is a popular place as it was heaving. As a result, service was quite slow but the waiter was pleasant enough. However, while my goulash and noodles was good, the duck salad ordered... More

As the orders were fed in with a computer, the service was quick and effective. Salmon tartar as starter was nice but a bit tasteless - nice salad though! As a main course I had a steak platter where three different peaces of meet were served together with a local nudel and mashroom sauce. The file was very good indeed... More

Passed thru Stuttgart for lunch on a Sunday after New Years, wanted local food and to quickly walk thru old town area. Trusted TripAdvisor reviews and was happy again! Normally I wouldn't expect a restaurant right on the edge of a main old town square to be good, but this was great! I like nicer restaurants but we were dressed... More
