Goldener Ochse

Reviewed By Imk01 - Berlin, Germany

Der Ausflug nach Esslingen um hier Essen zu gehen lohnt sich unbedingt. Auf dem Gelände des ehemaligen Schlachthofs gelegen steht das nette Haus in dem sich der „Goldene Ochse“ befindet. Direkt davor ein Parkplatz dessen Schranke sich automatisch öffnet.
Die Speisekarte ist überschaubar und bietet neben den einzelnen Speisen auch ein Menü. Meine Wahl fiel auf Muscheln und Rindertournedo. Letzteres genau auf den Punkt gebraten und butterweich - einfach toll!
Der Service gibt gute Weinempfehlungen und ist sehr freundlich. Alles in allem ein Restaurant das ich bestimmt wieder besuchen werde.

Ambiente Africa

Reviewed By Salvador7519

After a visit in a museum nearby we stopped here for dinner! We were lucky to get a table because it was already packed. Even though it was busy, the staff was very hospitable and fast. The food was hard to choose because the food in the menu and on the tables around us looked great. We had different two vegetarian meals. Both choices were great. We can absolutely recommend this place. But next time we better book in advance.....

Weinkeller Einhorn

Reviewed By Larry M

We were only in town for a week, but we were able to go to the Einhorn three times. The first was just for drinks in the cellar to soak up some atmosphere. The second and third time we went back for some amazing steak dinners. My favorite item was a fillet with blue cheese and mushrooms. We have to leave town, but can't wait to come back for more. Thanks Rainer for the excellent service.

Restaurant Trollinger im Movenpick Hotel Stuttgart Airport

The Trollinger is in the Mövenpick Hotel at Stuttgart?s busy airport. The restaurant has a charming interior décor. There is a successful contrast between modern interior design and traditional chandeliers, creating a stylish oasis of calm. This is a place where you can dine splendidly - and socialise. As you would expect from a Mövenpick Hotel, the cuisine is ambitious offering a mixture of traditional Swiss dishes and local Swabian specialities. Typical dishes such as Maultaschen (a type of ravioli with a meat and spinach filling) or Flädlesuppe (clear soup with pancake strips) are also on the menu. The service is friendly and efficient and offers expert advice when it comes to choosing from the fabulous wine list.

Literally right out of the airport and a quick walk across the street and you are at the hotel.
The rooms are well appointed and extremely comfortable. The bathrooms have heated floors and a nice big shower! You can even open you window in your room to get some fresh air.
Breakfast buffet is fabulous! Every morning a fresh smoothie shot is brought to your table. A wonderful selections of teas and fresh juices. Fresh breads, cheeses, omelet station, fresh fruits and more! Service is wonderful.
The gym is never full and there is everything you would need to get a good workout. The spa is fabulous. 3 different types of saunas, a relaxation area showers.
The downstairs bar is great after a long day of work. Again fabulous service and good food.
I would high sky recommend this hotel.

Speisemeisterei

Reviewed By HollyTravels365

After several days of traditional German cuisine, we found 1-Starred restaurant Speisemeisterei. It is a long haul from the center of Stuttgart, but worth it, for the view, location and beautiful decor. It's hard to believe this elegantly decorated single room restaurant exists in such a remote location. Be prepared for a tasting menu full of little bites and foam. The main dishes are excellent, but you definitely do not leave full. The service is impeccable though, and even the house wines are top notch. We made Reservations a few days in advance and there were still multiple tables open.

Joe Pena's

Reviewed By michelejeannine5 - Stuttgart, Germany

for Germans this might be acceptable mexican food since they might not know any better. If you have had real mexican food then you know that this is a poor imitation. The place was overstuffed, the Waitstaff disorganized and the food overpriced. When I booked the reservation they actually asked how long we wanted to stay. I pulled 2 hours out of my *** thinking it wouldn't mattter. they actually came to our table and asked us to pay and leave after two hours!! Will never go here again.

Well everything good that's been said on TripAdvisor is true, a wonderful host with limited but adequate English to help a none German speaker through the menu.
The food was tasty and interesting, some specialities were new to me and beautifully cooked and presented.
I'll be back when I'm in town again

Alte Wache

Reviewed By G3inLondon

A bit out of town (Ostfildern), this restaurant is readily accessible by car and well worth finding. Our party enjoyed the salmon salad, the schnitzel and the noodles washed down with several liters of refreshing hefeweizen as we whiled away a lovely spring afternoon under the umbrella of their large beer garden. When the weather got a bit messy, we moved inside and finished our meal there. The staff were friendly, they offered English menus and whole setting was quite lovely - indoor and outdoor. Again, not your typical restaurant setting but well worth visiting if you are driving in the area.
