“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

We went looking for food without reading reviews and stumbled across this restaurant. It was so good! The staff were extremely friendly and not just the forced friendliness of most businesses, just naturally friendly. We ordered the Diogenes platter for 2 and it was huge. It was 24 euros and filled us both to the brim with leftovers still on the plate. The meat was so tasty with the different spices and the salad was fresh and well dressed. A complimentary shot of ouzo (or something) at the end of the meal capped it off. A great atmosphere in this restaurant which left us feeling happy when we finished and made our night. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience and keep up the great work!

“Great Little Restuarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

I found this restaurant because of the previous review. It is a small place and the woman who was running it could not have been more welcoming or helpful. She welcomed me and made a joke and took me right in to a table. The food was typical of a Greek restaurant. The portions were generous, it was cooked to order, and was very good. The price is right.

“A little gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

We visited the Diogenes Tavern on the first of a four night city break in Stuttgart and enjoyed a fabulous evening. The restaurant is small and intimate with typical Greek themes, seating perhaps just twenty four diners. The portions were large and the food excellent. The staff, I suspect, were all of the same family and for one evening we felt almost a part of their family. Although they didn’t speak English we got along fine with our basic German. There were only around a dozen diners on our visit and we were allowed to occupy the table for several hours and enjoyed several glasses of wine, long after we finished eating. The menu isn’t extensive but everything we ate was very good. For starters we had bean soup and feta salad and for main we both ate chicken souvlaki served with fries, bread and a generous side salad in a separate bowl. The bill came under fifty Euros, including two jugs of wine and two large beers. The restaurant is on the periphery of the city centre maybe 100 metres from “Olgaeck” metro station. We would be happy to recommend this restaurant to other travellers and will visit again if we return to Stuttgart. Thanks to the staff for a lovely evening 
