Great food and wine selection. Waiter had a great sense of humour. A recommended place to dine by the square and eat fine local cuisine.

I had the Stuttgarter Filetplater and it sure was a joy to try. The creamy mushroom sauce was tasty and both the pork and beef were cooked nicely and juicy. It was my first time trying the cheese noodle as well. I'm sure it won't be my last!

Lovely spot in the man square, we had flat bread and fillet steak with port sauce. Really lovely. Just a shame the waiter took his own €10 tip without us telling him.

Had lunch here on a recommendation from an acquaintance. The food is typical Swabian, and of a high quality. We were seated quickly on a busy Sunday afternoon, despite not having a reservation. Our waiter, despite him saying he had limited English, was very entertaining and helpful, and our food was delicious. The ravioli was different to our usual style,... More

We chose the "Alte Kanzlei" for our annual family Christmas dinner based on some positive experiences in the past when we stopped by this very centrally located restaurant in the city centre of Stuttgart. We were always impressed with high quality local fare served by friendly and professional service personnel at a very fair price. So, we thought "what could... More

My favorite restaurant in Stuttgart. We try to go on every visit. I usually get the Stuttgarter Filetteller. Recently the flädle soup is better --- it used to be intolerably salty (and I love salt). My husband's go to, the linsen und spätzle, is very tasty too. Service on this most recent visit was speedy - speedier than in the... More

Myself German living abroad, I do not miss the German cuisine. But here it was done so well I was glad my friends took my here. Good cooking, though the place was chock-a-block, and good service, with dishes typical for the area. Try the Sauerbraten.

Thank Marc P
