Located in the center of town, this is one of my favorite places in Darmstadt. They have outdoor Seating, great food and beer. You can people watch for hours here, and make new friends in the process. Highly recommend you give them a try. Located in the central plaza "Marktplatz" across for the Palace.

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.
We came to Sitte fairly early in our year's stay in Darmstadt. There are many good restaurants in the city but Sitte became our favourite German restaurant, the place to go when friends came to visit, for a special occasion or just because we felt like a meal out. For the summer there is a pleasant outside courtyard but we have usually sat inside. The food is traditional German with seasonal specialities depending on the time of year. The beer is very good. We have always found the service very good.
When it came to going out for a final dinner in Darmstadt before returning to live in the UK going to Sitte was the obvious choice, and we were not disappointed. The autumn menu had just started and the Hirschbraten with red cabbage was excellent. We hope that we will be going back to Darmstadt on occasion in the future and when we do will will make sure that we book a table at Sitte.

My husband and I discovered Haroun's on the last day of our 6 week stay in Darmstadt, and for this we are very sorry. We would have patronized them regularly if we had known them sooner. The food at this place is excellent. At least dishes numbers 36 and 37. The service was good, the place spotless. And Haroun himself served us and was very personable. Definitely recommend.

We've visited Thai restaurants in many cities around the world, including in Thailand itself (about 6 trips) and not yet found one better than Ban Thai. The curries are excellent, the cocktails delicious and the service friendly. Quality and value are consistently high. We've taken many visitors to Darmstadt there and all were impressed.
Only slight drawback, the outside Seating in summer is not the nicest spot to sit, being overlooked by apartments.
Try it, you won't be disappointed. Be sure to reserve a table if going at the weekend (apart from Summer when people tend to go to places with nicer outdoor seating) since it is understandingly popular.
Lunch menu is a good value.

I went to this restaurant yesterday. I don't drink alcohol so I ordered "Weissbier alkoholfrei" beer which is alcohol-free beer. The food is fresh and very tasty. I would recommend "Rustikales Vesperbrett" (a tradition cold meats with cheese). The atmosphere is lively and feel comfortable and this place is nearby Darmstadt main train station.

Cozy and busy local restaurant that was truly and excellent meal. It was indeed, for me, a notch above the many schnitzel restaurants I have been to. The service was fast and the staff polite and the atmosphere was quite nice.

Great traditional place with a cozy atmosphere and good beer and good traditional food. When on a business trip and dining alone, this place is quite pleasant, the service is nice and fast. Seated at the bar you can seamlessly enjoy the evening even on your own. As I am often in Darmstadt for work, I will surely come again.

Very close to the forest of Darmstadt you can find this restaurant which is a perfect place after a good walk or getaway in the nature. It offers a big area for outside Seating so it is very pleasant in the summer time. The staff is friendly and the restaurant offers a free parking area in front. There is a little playground outside for the kids, too.

Visited Hacienda last night with 6 work colleagues for dinner. We were a blend of North American based and France based people who were excited not to eat German food again.
The restaurant was a good size, however lacked air conditioning or any fans, which made dinner a little uncomfortable.
The food itself was good. I wouldn't say it was authentic Mexican but it was tasty. The guacamole was great and so were the chips. Overall the food was well priced and plentiful.
We order lots of drinks and they were relatively good too.
My only negative comment would be the service. We had a total of three people waiting in us. The younger server was visably annoyed with having to wait on Americans and snorted when one asked for ice. Also laughed at use when we said "danke", which I thought was not necessary. The woman waiter was not as rude but definitely not friendly either. The older man, who seemed to be the manager, was pleasant and I would have rather dealt with him the whole time.
