The restaurant is in the Alte Kanzlei, and as its name suggests, it was the Old Chancellery, constructed between the years 1542 and 1544. It is in a privileged area, in Schiller Platz. I went there with my parents to taste the food of the zone. We ordered 3 different dishes to share and loved all of them. I recommend the maultaschen with potato salad and caramelized onions. They are one hundred percent homemade and are delicious. The portions are big and excellent presentation. Despite being in a historic building in the center of town, the price turned out to be cheap. The meal, drinks and coffees came out to 60 euros. In the summer, the restaurant allows customers to eat on the terrace, which is in the Old Town Square.
Arche is a cozy restaurant situated in a very central area of Stuttgart, next to the market square. During my stay in Stuttgart it was one of my favorite places to take visitors to show them Swabian food (from the Baden-Württemberg). I recommend trying the maultaschen with potato salad, and Spätzle with onions. The chef salad, though less traditional, is tasty. The best thing to drink is a nice cold beer. There are plenty to choose from. Yes, the barrel taste much better than the bottle. And to end the evening, I have no words for the vanilla ice cream with hot sauce made from blackberries .... Dinner is usually around 15 euros per person. The place has a terrace all year for customers to enjoy. The atmosphere is very familiar, whether you want to dine inside or out. The waiters and the restaurant owner were very helpful as well. The service is good.
Every year during the first week of September, this local wine fair takes place. The large area of vineyards in the region produce fruit that give excellent white wines, especially Riesling. You can also try the Trocken (dry wine), Halbtrocken (semi) and Süss (sweet). In addition to wine, there are a huge number of stalls serving typical southern German food. The décor imitates a medieval market. Cooks and waiters wear old suits. We tried the maultaschen with cheese and egg and the Spätzle with cabbage and sausage. It's worth visiting as it is so unique but is more expensive than in a restaurant. A wine and nibbles cost around 10 euros.
Columbus is a restaurant located within the university campus in Vaihingen. The name is tribute to Christopher Columbus. In fact all the dishes, apart from having names related to the discovery of America, are adorned with mini Spanish flags. Saturdays and Sundays have a special 2x1 offer from 10pm-11pm, excluding drinks. Saturday is also burger day and the offer is extended to include more dishes. There are lots of dishes. Come, ye will not leave hungry. The hamburgers are highly recommended, especially the Sanchez, with cheese and egg. All come with potatoes, which can come normal or rustic (Deluxe). One of my favorite salads is the Madeira, with Mozarella sticks grated. And for dessert, Apfelstrudel (sort of apple pie with puff pastry served warm with vanilla ice cream above) mmmmm .... Take advantage of the offer because you can dine very well for 8 euros. On weekends there's also a delicious buffet lunch (brunch) until 3 in the afternoon for 10 euros. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor dining. It's best to book beforehand for large groups.
This restaurant is a sushi buffet located in central Stuttgart. Inside, the tables are located in the middle and they surround conveyor belts that carry the food in individual bowls. Each one is served directly from the table. Opposite you'll find the kitchen table, separated by a window that lets you see the process of preparing the food. Although they primarily serve sushi, you can also eat vegetables and some salad there. For dessert they have fresh fruit cut into pieces, and fortune cookies. The food was good and although our Japanese friend recommended it to us, it wasn't the best sushi I've ever eaten. However, considering the price (17 euros per person not including drinks) I would also recommend.
