We ate here twice when visiting Stuttgart last year and really looked forward to a return visit hoping they would be just as good - and they definitely were! This has to be one of my favourite restaurants in Germany and we've tried many. The food is superb and I tend to choose their local specialties. Great selection of wines... More

This is very conventionality located near one of the tram was that has very frequent services. We popped in here for an evening meal. The service was good and spoke English. The food was great. If you visit try the traditional local meals.

Traditional German with a modern twist. I did not think it was too expensive for Stuttgart. Great view in the back of the Church. Friendly staff. If you need it ask for the English menu. Remember no tipping Americans! Just round up the bill. 3 to 5 euros on a 40 euro bill is more then enough..

The service is ok and the staff courteous but food is average and the menu choices kind of limited. Indeed too expensive for what you get. Average is the maximum they can get.

We sat for 20 minutes outside on the terrace, nobody of the service asked or bothered We got inside and still no service 20 minutes. Asking didn't help we were ignored. Don't go there I know we never will. Chaos

Very good food in a very nice location. Ate a local soup with local noodles and a roast beef with amazing potatoes. Don't miss

While the location and outdoor seating of the Alte Kanzlei are big pluses, the average to mediocre quality of my meal and perfunctory service made me question whether the restaurant is resting on its reputation. My dinner salad was limp and was sopping wet with a dressing that was not particularly flavorful. My kase spaetzle seemed to be made from... More

The setting is lovely, best if you can sit outdoors. Service painfully slow and borders on rude - don't go if you are in a hurry. We went for brunch, didn't get served what we ordered - e.g. No croissants, kept forgetting drinks. No apology for missing items either. Maybe better just for drinks 🤔
