Our family of four (2teens) ate here for dinner. Great service - attentive and nice - unlike some experiences of other reviewers. The food was served efficiently and was great! The teens had the Stuttgarter Filletteller, my husband and I split the sauerbraten and the lentils with frankfurters. All were fantastic!

Area is good and the Location has a very good sourounding. Especially in Summer you Can sit outside on the One side to the Schlossplatz (parkview) and on the other side on the Schillerplatz (view to Church and oldtown Flair). This is very nice you but the meal/Food was only OK. I had the traditionell Käsespätzle. Also the other members... More

This is a nice place where we had both a coffee early and returned for lunch. The inside morning service was very good and the afternoon outside lunch service was minimal at best. The food was quite good, Schwabian speicalties emphasized. I had a salmon plate on a potato pancake, for this the three forms of salmon were all good,... More

A lively setting just off the Schlossplatz, with outdoor seating, this restaurant offers a good taste of German cuisine and has a seasonal menu that highlights locally procured foods. Although dessert was not spectacular, the salad and main courses were all excellent in quality and quantity.

I selected this restaurant by walking around central Stuttgart and noting what looked attractive, as I like first to 'read' a restaurant from the outside. I then looked it up on TripAdvisor and noted the various comments there are below. The location of the restaurant is one of its strong points, even in the dark. It is also very popular,... More

Excellent food, excellent selection of wine and good service. Food comes in large portions so best to choose one dish per person and share. The maultaschen were very cooked as was the Swabian style spätzle with cheese. Try one of the house made cakes with coffee for dessert.

The food was very good and authentic. The location and venue are fantastic, and I love their outside terrace. The staff however was cold and close to rude.

A nice place with seating both inside and out. The menu offers some local Swabian specials and some other hearty German dishes too.

We were nearby at the wine festival and decided to eat here instead. We had 2 tasty main courses and a great bottle of red wine. The atmosphere was very relaxed even though we were in the centre of the town. I will like to return.

Thank AliConn

Von kreativen Salaten und raffinierten Suppen ��ber leichte Snacks und Fischgerichte bis hin zum authentischen schw��bischen Hauptgericht wird f��r jeden Geschmack etwas geboten. In der Einrichtung und in der K��che treffen sich altbew��hrte und neue Ideen. Besonders die Pl��tze auf den beiden Terrassen, mit Blick auf Schillerplatz oder Schillerdenkmal sind im Sommer sehr begehrt.
