The Ratsstuben is a must when visiting the Stuttgart area. A comfortable, typical local South West German restaurant this was a welcome relief from many commercialized restaurants in the area. The owner and her staff are very nice and accommodating. The menu is varied and has options for most eaters. I suggest getting their local menu which includes seasonally available... More

Today I went to Ratsstuben and was very satisfied with the meal I ordered: Schwaebischer Sauerbraten mit handgeschabten Spaetzle und Salat. It was really tasty. Lot of food for a fair price (EUR 16,90). Recommendable restaurant for people who like south german food.

Unten auf Deutsch. Better than average but not very good. I have had tomato soup, a small salad, grilled beef with fries, ice cream, a glass of wine and an espresso. In the beginning every guest was served with a free aperitif of some lamb with potato salad. The tomato soup was good; it was served with some bread. The... More

A little like a well lighted bathroom, mysteryfactor not much, and the milieu so, so. But the service friendly, working well, can wait in guests, coordinate. Wel priced, lot of food (maybe too much) for a good price. Also well cooked, but like many german kitchens, no taste sensation, rather mixed up everything. For a dinner with friends, not so... More

I visited this restaurant while staying at the nearby Ibis Airport hotel. The food was good, menu in English and staff were friendly and attentive. Food was reasonably priced (Steak €20, soup €4.40, beer €3.40). I would certainly visit this restaurant again if I was in the area.

I loved having dinner here. I was in Stuttgart for four nights and had dinner here twice which itself is a good indicator of its good quality and tasty cuisines. They really have good options for vegetarians. Service was also very good. Highly recommended.

We went here tonight and had the best meal in the last 2 weeks of traveling. Deer ragout with späzele and a side salad as well as the "hausgemachte Fleischküchele" which were served with Bratkartoffel and a side salad. I have to say the second dish was my favorite and was a steal at 8,90 Euros. The meat patties were... More

My family and I have eaten dinner here several times and like it more with each visit. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is tasty and the portions are quite generous. The place settings are a bit fancy so it may also be a good choice if you are celebrating a special occasion but don't want to... More

The restaurant has the look of a very good restaurant from the 1970s. The menu and wine list are large. The presentations are very appealing and the tastes are what we expected, if a bit bland. Our problems were with the meat quality. My wife had the lamb and I had a pork schnitzel. Each was on the dry side... More
