Fourth visit to this fantastic restaurant. Everything was to the usual high standard with super-helpful staff, great food (though the selection is maybe a bit restricted) and great beers. Fab atmosphere, recommended

Classic old German decor, feel, and menu. For potatoes and schnitzel with a beer, this is a great city-center spot. But nothing stood out as particularly unique or excellent, and this heavy diet grows old quickly.

Dirk K, Manager at Restaurant Sitte, responded to this review

Dear CaseyfromBoston, thank you for your review. I am sorry you were only pleased by your visit. During the year we have different specials with seasonal dishes where you can choose from asparagus, steaks or Italian specialties. Maybe you can try some of these in the future.

This is a popular place in Darmstadt with excellent food. It has an old German feel to it. It is always busy and hosts huge groups of people in a special room for large parties.

I have spoken with a Frankfurt colleague recently what restaurants we prefer for having a good time. Of course, “good times” are different for everybody but if you asked me I would probably name Sitte. Sitte for me is a family restaurant, which can attract different generations. For me, it has always been a place where I could not only... More

Very popular restaurant in Darmstadt, always having lots of customers. Convenient service over the whole day! Broad range of menus available including local specialities from the Odenwald area. Focus weeks on seasonal products like asparagues in spring time or christmas dinners.

Went here for a birthday dinner last month. I had the pork loin and noodles. Both were quite tasty and pork was very tender. Also had a Pfungstadter dark beer to start the dinner and it was very good as well. My wife and I split the apple strudel and it was quite good as well.

The Sittte restaurant does not look much when you go past it: it is in an unexciting block near the Schulstrasse tram stop. Only some very favourable reviews on TripAdvisor persuaded us to have a look inside. We are very pleased that we did. It is an excellent restaurant.

Very good German restaurant with consistent quality of food. I have been here a number of times over the past couple of years. The food quality, atmosphere, and service are always consistently good. The Potato Soup Darmstadt Style is excellent.

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.
