Is one of my favorite places to go. The trick is if you want to get a table outside in the sun. You have to go up to the German and ask is there still some free space here. Otherwise you'll never get a place to sit outside on the Schillerplatz.

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 there, and with good reason. The food is typical German and Schwabian, two of us... More

Room for improvement: staff should be a bit... More

Myself and a colleague stopped here for something to eat one evening whilst in the area. We picked it as the tables outside were bathed in sun and it looked very relaxed. We got a table outside and ordered a couple of beers. They had an English menu which helped and we ordered a couple of the dishes, the roast... More

I had the Stuttgarter Filetplater and it sure was a joy to try. The creamy mushroom sauce was tasty and both the pork and beef were cooked nicely and juicy. It was my first time trying the cheese noodle as well. I'm sure it won't be my last!

Lovely spot in the man square, we had flat bread and fillet steak with port sauce. Really lovely. Just a shame the waiter took his own €10 tip without us telling him.

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.
