This was my first Swabian meal, my first real German food. It was amazing!!! I had the Maulaschen with cold potato salad and fresh greens. It was so good. My Riesling wine was dry, not so sweet, and cold. It was a hot night, so...More

A friend of mine from Stuttgart took me here while I was visiting this month. He said it was very good if I wanted to taste the local cuisine, which is called Schwabisch. There is seating outside with a nice view of the old castle....More

Nice place with historical architecture around. Food tastes good. Prices are higher than average. Service isn't higher than average. That's why i cannot quote for very good.

Very bad quality food - avoid starters and schnitzel, the only good thing was fast and efficient service

This restaurant is a fantastic choice. We had the ravioli and the penne pasta. The lunch menu is very comprehensive and it is an upscale restaurant. The prices aren't too bad either! All in all, a great choice for a bite to eat.

I always enjoy a visit to Alte Kanzlei for a light snack or full meal. It's right on the Schlossplatz and I find it's a great place to bring guests and visitors. The wine menu is good and the food is always excellent.

Alte Kanzlei is great. It is an institution with fine foods and fine wines, beers, soft drinks. Service tends to be good and the architecture draws you in. However, if you're on a budget this place is definitely not for you!

After visiting the exhibition "Die Schwaben" in the Landesmuseum, we needed sustenance. Just across the elegant Schillerplaz, with the poets statue in the middel, lies the "Alt Kanzlei", big, busy and lively. It was more or less full for the good two hours we spent...More

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.
