City Braustub'l: Good beer, good food.......
Lots of beer choices, a good range of regional foods which are well-prepared and at reasonable prices.
A pleasant inner courtyard to sit and eat (or drink) and warm evenings, with fairy lights and tinkling water feature.
I had the Bauernhandkäse mit 'Musik' (two kinds of radish in this case) and bread. It was very good, and went beautifully with my dunkelbier. Fortunately, the 'Musik' does not work on me. :-)

Hotel Restaurant "Bockshaut": Traditional and good
The interior alone of the oldest German pub in Darmstadt (since 1795) makes a gem out of this restaurant, which already has a long history. In 1580 the "Bockshaut" was founded as a tannery. In 1795 it was transformed into a wine tavern and restaurant, and the sign of the guild, i.e. the skin of a male goat ("Bockshaut"), was chosen as the name for this tavern.
Today you can enjoy Hessian tradition in the stylish restaurant, in various banquet rooms or, when the weather is fine, on the cosy terrace under a vine bower.
Favorite Dish: When I have been there, a Hessian set meal was on offer, SEVEN courses for a mere 18,90 Euro.
1. (Apfelwein mit Sekt) a glass of apple wine with sparkling wine - this is a strange mixture for my taste
2. (Zander-Lachstimbale mit Feigenschmand) pike-perch and salmon pie with fig sour cream - this was out so we got
2. medium roasted venison with salad - THIS was a culinary delight, both the meat AND the salad !!
3. (Bärlauchsüppchen) ramsons' soup - creamy with croutons
4. (Odenwalder Häppchen) white bread crisply fried in garlic butter with parsley and creamy balsamic vinegar - a small dish for buying time to digest the previous two
5. (Maispoularde mit Schupfnudeln) spring chicken with a type of thick noodles made of potatoes, flour and eggs - finally the main dish, BUT this was too salty and rather tasteless after the great venison starter
6. (Kochkäse) homemade sour milk cheese mit dark bread, onions and caraway - a typical Hessian combination
7. (Ananas in Honig genraten mit Eis) pineapple fried with honey, served with ice cream and whipped cream - the sweet sin at the end

Belleville: French Restaurant
This is my favorite restaurant in Darmstadt.
It is a real french restaurant: Just good food and drink, but no snobism, no waiter with his nose high in the air. No frills, but nice ambiente.
It's just a place to have great food and wine (and whisky).
Favorite Dish: Menu changes frequently. Ask about recommendations of the day.
I love how they combine salad with meats like foie gras or rillettes.

Ratskeller: Beer direct from the Brewery
If you're in the country for beer, go to Ratskeller and have one there.
They brew it themselves, right in the pub.
It's unfiltered and tastes different to beer from larger breweries.
They also serve food, which is traditional german "Brauhaus" fare.
Favorite Dish: Beer: Helles, Märzen

Aussie Bar and Grill: Don't eat the kangaroo!
I think the real name of this place is El Corraberie, but I'm not sure. It's across the street from Enchiladas so the taxi can find it. They serve Austrailian food including kangaroo and crocodile. I've had both. But their biggest thing is that they serve great drinks that are really big, so if you're a lush like I am, you'll definitely like happy hour when all cocktails are 50% off. We had people passed out before leaving quite a few times. However one time me and some of my other friends got sick after eating (I didn't drink much that nght, and it wasn't right away) there, but we don't know if it was from there or not; it probably wasn't but I never went back after that.
Cubana Restaurant & Bar: Wining & Dining in Darmstadt
The decoration itself, even though it has the inevitable portrait of the Che on the wall, does not remind me of Cuba, too dark. The ambiance though is friendly and lively as any in the Caribbean. The music, which is all recordings, no life bands, is authentic and not intrusive. A great place to come if you want a spot to relax and talk. The Food menu consists mostly of pork and seafood dishes, all very tasty. The best part though are the cocktails, my favorites are the Mojitos! This is a place that you'll come back to.
Favorite Dish: The bistec de cerdo, which has a very interesting seasoning.

I don't eat out much... I just take a lot of gelato.. On the left front of Luisen Center is the ice cream bar! The guys are friendly, the scoops cost bout.. 60 cent a scoop I think.. or 80.. Whatever, its good. That, or on the right side of the building, there's a shop there too.. But I still prefer the one in front of the building!
Favorite Dish: Amarena!! Yummm
This is actually the Darmstädter Brewery. So, not only do you get great German food, but their freshly brewed Beer as well. I like their Kristalweisen and my husband likes their Pilsner. The restaurant has character to it. Imagine a fancy beer hall. This is a place where you could dress up or dress down. During the warmer months, there is outdoor seating. Their salads are wonderful, too. The house salad, or kleiner salat comes with a delicious version of the German staple, yogurt dressing.
Favorite Dish: Schwäbischer Lendentopf mit Spätzle, which is tenderloin meat served over German noodles with a mushroom sauce.
Jäegersnitzle, which is breaded pork with a mushroom sauce and potatoes.
An Sibin: An Sibin
Besides the food being really good, the atmosphere is nice and you have live music, and some speacial events in certain ocasions.
Favorite Dish: I ate this really really nice chicken breast with a baileys (u know, the liquor)sauce...very good!
Antic Locarlos, Eberstadt: Antic Locarlos, Eberstadt
Locarlos was the first place I went to in Germany when I first moved here, so I suppose it will always be a comforming place for me personaly.
It may apear dark when you first go inside, in fact it is quite dimly lit, but it works. Right at the back there is a room for a large party, and in the summer the garden is open.
If a large group of you are plannign to go, booking is a very good idea! This palce is very popular with the local (and not so local) germans.
Favorite Dish: Bolenasa Schnitzle, very tasty! Comes with a salad, which I never eat becasue, well the sauce isnt' really my thing, and I know the main meal is so filling I don't wan to wast any stomach space what so ever on grated carrot.
A breaded peice of chicken or turkey or something, with bolognase sauce on the top, covered with melted cheese served with lots of chips. Lovely!
German and international food
Cozy Thai atmosphere, relatively quiet, by still close enough to the town center
Splendid food at fair prices -- and usually
also very large servings!
Anything that is labelled as 'spicy'
No fixed preference; just pick the menu of the day!
African Safari: African Safari
This restaurant is very 'African', smooth atmosphere and spicy dishes from the whole continent. Go there if you are in no hurry though!
Favorite Dish: Peanut soup. A dish from Gambia, mixing peanut and chicken. Absolutely wonderful, a great experience
Café K u K: You may miss the place.
It was raining and were were very tired of walking. At last we saw a familier Austria-Hungarian café. We rested and had our Wiener melange (not good)
