We ate here twice this year (went last year and although food was good, service was poor then).
They have a good range for food that would suite most people. We either had a house salad and pasta or house salad and pfannes. The main courses were between 6 and 8 euros, so excellent value and the food was good.
Is a very popular place and good to sit out and people watch.
The service is still a hit and a miss. Our first visit this time was fine but on the 2nd visit we got the same guy as last year and he is slow. To remedy that, sit further up the hill, so to the right of the main door when facing it or quite near the door.

I have been living in Jena for the last 8 months and I still love going to this little place on Wagnergasse. The food is always delicious and they serve HUGE portions and you definitely get what you pay for. I love going here for coffee with friends after class. Most of the waiters/waitresses also speak English if you're worried about language issues.

We were encouraged to try this after the positive reviews we read.

Pleasant situation on old cobbled lane with seating out on the lane.

Good range of food on the menu, the portions were big and the food very good.
The main courses were between 5 and 10 euros.

Unfortunately the service was diabolical, the worst I have ever experienced. Despite having been given menus, we spent 20 mins trying to get the waiters attention to take our food order. Our main course too about 50 minutes to come and then it took 2 promptings to try and get the bill. Matters were made worse when the waiter spilt half a glass of dunkel beer over my beige, cloth handbag. Very poor.

Stilbruch is the best place in Jena. The food is wonderful. I went 2 nights in a row after visiting and tasting the first night. The pesto pasta is the best I have ever had. I also had the gorgonzola and spinach pasta which was superb. The waiter was really great the first night, the waiter the second night was nice but much slower, granted the tables were all full...as is always the case. You will know this place when you walk by-it is the one place always packed! In the area where most of the pubs and restaurants are. Big bonus they serve food until midnight...rare for Jena. Enjoy!
