Description: Am Schillerplatz in Stuttgarts Stadtmitte befindet sich das traditionsreiche Restaurant Alte Kanzlei. 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. Besonders die Pl��tze auf den beiden Terrassen, mit Blick auf Schillerplatz oder Schillerdenkmal sind im Sommer sehr begehrt.

The setting makes it almost impossible to pass up. The food is above average, especially the homemade soups. The service is painfully slow, with waiters that are borderline indifferent to the customers. It is too bad the service is not better. I would not stop by if the outdoor seating area looks busy.

Food is very tasty. You can find local specialties in the menu and these are prepared with gourmet ingredients. Service is little slow at times but well mannered! Place is always clean and orderly. The restaurant is popular among the local prominent folks. One draw back- they place reserved signs on every table even though tables are free. So, do... More

This bar and restaurant offers affordable and relaxed dining in the centre of Stuttgart between the two squares in the old town. We have eaten outside and inside, in winter it is a cosy spot. A good menu with a wide range of dishes, swift service in a good and attractive room. Good for lunch or an evening meal when... More

We were there twice. The food is very tasty, service is quick. The prices are not the lowest, but the portions are also huge.. Make sure to make a reservation on week-ends to get a table

Very nice location in the center of Stuttgart, especially its back yard. I eat there almost once a week and the "friendly professionalism" as well as the quality of the dishes remains very good (that is why I keep going with friends, family and colleagues). The behavior against my child is also to be rewarded.

The location of "Alte Kanzlei" is unbeatable. Located directly at Schlossplatz its in the heart of Stuttgart. The food is good. Not only swabian - but also some variety and even some veggie stuff. The service is nice and thoughtful, prices are ok (given it's top location). Will you find better and cheaper swabian food in Stuttgart, for sure. But... More

During a Sunday walk through Stuttgart we came upon this elegant restaurant and were happy to be able to order lunch after normal German lunchtime and to even get a table right in the middle of town. We discovered very quickly reasons for the popularity of the Alte Kanzlei: excellent food, quick service, and pleasant interior. We had the traditional... More

A local doctor whom my son met with during his business trip in Stuttgart had recommended this restaurant to him. It's located next to the old palace at Schillerplatz. The outdoor seating facing the Schillerplatz is more desirable by the guests than the side facing the green park. The wait staff were busy so we had to wait for a... More

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
