Drinks are ok, good chose of wine. But the old fashioned type of German service makes the place really less desirable. The food is fine as well. But for the same amount of money one could go somewhere nicer.

Nothing out of fancy, this venue is exactly what the name ("The Old Chancery") would suggest: an old-fashioned traditional restaurant with the usual classics in a nice setting. In the summer you can dine outdoor and enjoy some fine dishes with a good wine (but must be at least Austrian...) or beer. It is maybe too loud - outside at... More

VERY Disappointing.Food was 'ok' but service was dreadful.Having finished our meal,we waited 40 minutes without any drinks (as we'd finished them) before the waiter came back to us.Sadly they were too busy attending to people waiting for tables.Not a good experience at all.

Stopped here for dinner at the end of a tiring day. Good was great- very good choice and great quality. A busy busy place but staff were very friendly. Good choice of wines and puddings were ace. Nice spot too- very pretty. Bonus of menu in English as our attempts at German weren't great. Will keep trying though.

Very good atmosphere, great dishes, very good service. They have a lot of lokal specialities, and they even explain if you ask, how they prepare these dishes. Beer as usual is very good. If you can sit on the terrace, it is more quiet.

Just perfect service, food an location. Great choice of wine and very kids friendly although a lot of business people there. I recommend the Alte Kanzlei salad. Consistent in all they offer.

Lovely place for a relaxing lunch. Wonderful salads, chilled to perfection wine, friendly attentive staff, menus in English, it is not cheap, but well worth the money. I counted it a great choice and have marked it down as a to do again.
