Description: "Der Rote Hirsch (the red deer)" is the modern interpretation of a regional wine restaurant. The well designed environment is a good place to enjoy. The concept of the restaurant is to use mostly regional and seasonal ingredients. The cuisine is modern-swabian, fresh and of high quality and the beverage-menu is a pleasure for every connoisseur. We offer wines of the local Weinfactum Bad Cannstatt and furthermore only products out of our state Baden-Württemberg.

We ate here on our first night in Stuttgart. A little tired and jet lagged, we wanted somewhere with good food, and little fuss.

This place suited out needs, serving Schwabian/German cuisine and wines. We opted for a dumpling soup, and mountain cheese soup to start. Both dishes were good and hearty.

For mains we had the beef with butter spatzel and schnitzel and spatzel. Both were substantial bit very tasty.

We chose a local red Spatburgunder Wine, which matches our food well.

The staff were very chatty and pleasant. Definitely recommend, especially if you're hungry!

During a very busy week of exhibition the only relaxing moment is the dinner time. In this case the result has been exceptional. Great place (we have been placed outside in a sort of wooden chalet) very nice and kind and professional service but most of all excellent food and wines.
Really a great place!

This evening I wanted to met with my Onkel. And visit to this restaurant was really coincidental. On first view nice and cozy. But it isn't unfortunately. The menu nothing special, basic meals. Prices are Okey. Staff are a little confused, definitely students or something like that. Because when somebody ordered a beer and you bring a warm beer then is everything clear. And when we want to change it for wine, answer was no problem but we need to pay both drinks.
I want to ask when you (owner) have one of best restaurant in Stuttgart according to tripadvisor why can you get a real waiters.?!

Hi Marier0y!

We are very Sorry, that your evening wasn't that what you expected. To answer your question: We are a very small restaurant and our "real waiters" both suffer from the flue. That is the only reason, I have apology for.

Best wishes

Great place for dinner if you are looking for classic Swabian/German food with a modern feeling - no stodgy formality or touristy "beer hall" atmosphere, just a stylish but relaxed neighborhood restaurant. Food was very good and high quality, generous portions. Nice selection of beers and wines, friendly service. I also liked that the clientele was varied: young and old, couples and families, jeans and sneakers to blazers and blouses. For me the atmosphere and menu were perfect - not too trendy, but not old-fashioned either.
