On a warm Sunday afternoon we found this a pleasant place to lunch outside in the sheltered courtyard. The food, while not brilliant, was good for the price. For about €30 we got plenty of food and a nice cold Kellerbier. The Käsespätzle was very...More

Everyone was pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and drinks. Excellent southern German specialties. Great wine and beer. The waiter Markus was very friendly. The drinks and food were delivered in a timely manner. We had a great time.

It was a nice, sunny day and so we decided to sit outside. Had lunch and drinks. Good food but you don't get value for money here. Service is lousy.

Am Schillerplatz in Stuttgarts Stadtmitte befindet sich das traditionsreiche Restaurant Alte Kanzlei. In der ehemaligen Landschreiberei mit Registratur und Buchhaltung gehen heute Feinschmecker und Liebhaber der schw��bischen K��che ein und aus. Auf der Karte stehen hausgemachte, schw��bische Gerichte mit internationalen Akzenten. 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.
