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

The atmosphere was very warm and inviting, the menu had a good variety, the plates were done nicely, the bread was great, and so was the service. It however completely lost all those good qualities once I tried the appetizer (a salad with cold pork and sauce over it) and the main dish (the lamb). In general, most German restaurants... More

I visited Alte Kanzlei for a business lunch on the recommendation of a colleague with another coworker of mine. The first note I must make is I was very impressed by the service, our waitress was very responsive and helpful. She also kindly indulged my terrible attempts at German. For the meal I ordered the Stuttgarter Filet Plater, which was... More

Do not expect exquisite cuisine but good traditional German dishes. the restaurant really needs refurbishing but as it is very central it is convenient if you need to fill up your calories after a shopping trip.

We went here because this was the only restaurant on Christmas day. And while we bought provisions on the 24th of Dec, come 25th, I was tired of munching on cheese, bread, salami, leftover pizza and needed a real meal. Our hotel concierge found this place and while they didn't have reservations for 2 pm, the guy said to come... More

The potato soup was delicious! The host was kind and gracious. That's the good. Now the bad. When I politely asked our waiter, Sprechen Sie English?, he retorted, Sprechen Sie Greek? I chose to ignore this rude reply and we ordered our soup. He did not return until it was time to pay. While my niece was using her credit... More

Although I have eaten here several times, I am always just a bit disappointed by the service. That said, the food is great, and the wine list is terrific! If service and intimacy are not a compelling factor in your dining experience, I'm sure anyone would enjoy it! The location is very central and they have a nice outdoor patio... More

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.
