Description
The Sitte which is on the edge of Darmstadt city centre has been serving diners for well over a century. The brewery restaurant is not just a great place to quench your thirst, but it also offers delicious food for all appetites. The menu offers traditional cuisine, such as Tafelspitz (boiled beef Viennese style), Hesse potato soup, Vesperteller (a cold plate) as well as North German pizza and Italian inspired meat dishes. The menu itself is vast, and is further enhanced by a range of culinary promotions. The restaurant offers a reasonably priced lunchtime menu from 12 noon to 2 pm.
