Description: The Sitte which is on the edge of Darmstadt city centre has been serving diners for well over a century. The brewery restaurant is not just a great place to quench your thirst, but it also offers delicious food for all appetites. The menu offers traditional cuisine, such as Tafelspitz (boiled beef Viennese style), Hesse potato soup, Vesperteller (a cold plate) as well as North German pizza and Italian inspired meat dishes. The menu itself is vast, and is further enhanced by a range of culinary promotions. The restaurant offers a reasonably priced lunchtime menu from 12 noon to 2 pm.

Great steak, beers, and service. Went once then booked to take 15 people there a few days later on business. They managed the large table easily even though the restaurant was very busy.

We have visited Sitte several times over the last years, and have not been disappointed yet. Whether for a wedding anniversary with American friends, a birthday meal, New Year's Eve, Easter, or a "regular" visit, the food was always very good and the service friendly and fast. Apart from the usual menu, which is presented in the form of a... More

Darmstadt was heaving, we tried a few restaurants and they were fully booked. Sitte restaurant squeezed us in – Thank you ! Reservation lady was very nice, waiters and staff very friendly. Food was excellent, lots of choice and was very good quality. I would recommend this for any type of visitor – Tourist & Business.

To be find the restaurant busting full gave us the first sign that this is a good restaurant. The food was good as was the service. Also, the decor is attractive.

This "historical" restaurant offers some outdoor seating in an area just outside the main center of Darmstadt. The selection of food is quite rich, and they offers some traditional German dishes and some typical meals from this area. I took some spaetzle, a very tasty and soft beef steak with mushroom, and an apfel strudel as the dessert. Everything was... More

You feel like you are sitting in the middle of an old hunting lodge! Good authentic German food, with professional service. Hearty portions though the spaetzle did not seem homemade to me. They even have pizza on the menu, and we were there during asparagus season so there was a special menu with all sorts of items featuring white asparagus.

I just had a wonderful meal with several coworkers. The menu is varied and has some classic German dishes including a sausage salad that one person got that was excellent. I had an excellent braised lamb shank. A cozy, comfortable old world feel really tops things offf. Service was excellent and the staff speaks excellent English. They have English menus.... More
