After the tough day we've been really hungry for a good Thuringian food and thirsty for beers. Following the huge amount of recommendations we directly went to Stilbruch. The table was narrow, the space was definitely limited and the whole place was overcrowded - not sure that's the best place for a well deserved relax with delicious meal and German... More

Street was being dug up so little hard to find, but very popular, good beer and quite a wide range of food - traditional German, Italian even French style - which was good quality and not too expensive, good service but as with many small German towns only take cash for payments - worth a visit

Came to Jena with no expectations and were attracted by this restaurant "row." Stilbruch had healthy, fine food and friendly service, Highly recommend!

The restaurant is very well known and very well supported by locals and visitors. I have been eating here since I first visited Jena and I continue to eat here, having moved to the area in 2013. The ambiance provided by the beautiful building makes for a very enjoyable dine. Once you've worked your way through the minefield of a... More

Any time I come to Jena, I stop by this magnificent place, authentic location as well as painted menu, this restaurant place provides the ultimate experience of Jena cousin's, especially the pan cook dishes are most recommended, waiters are friendly and professionals unless you are in a hurry.

Not sure why people go crazy with this place.. I have been here many times ordering different food trying to understand why people love it here. I failed. The staffs were very unfriendly and food is alright. Just average. I would not oder any pasta dishes as they are always over cooked.. Pan dishes are quite reasonable.

The locals are raving about this place - I do not know exactly why. But the good stuff first: The restaurant is housed in a beautifully restored period building and is spread over three floors (if memory serves). You'll find lots of nooks and corners to sit down and have a great time with your company. Service was very reliable,... More

Food in Stilbruch is really excellent. I have tried the salads, the casseroles and the pastas and was never disappointed.

We went here twice during our visit to Jena and really enjoyed it each time. It can get crowded and, when that happens, they just tell you to come back later. They don't put your name on a list like they would in America. It took us several tries to get in. The food is really good, the portions are... More
