While I can testify only for the last almost 50 years, this already makes for a start. The Ratskeller is a classic; the location in the center of the center, the basement of the city hall at Heilbronn's main square, the Marktplatz, allows for business and family events; and of course for coming downstairs from a wedding, for a glass...

It is not easy to find a more upscale restaurant in this region, but this restaurant definitively met our expectations in this regard. The setting is beautiful and elegant, the service was impeccable and super friendly. We all enjoyed our food, offering a very good value for money.

Fellow English speakers, if it's not enough to observe that most of the rave reviews are by German speakers, here's what you need to know: excellent service and traditional food at its best. I'd suggest a reservation on the weekend; we reserved a table for 6:30 on a Tuesday night, which probably wasn't necessary... however, the stream of guests was... More

I had many dinners in this restaurant during a business trip in Heilbronn and I confirm an excellent opinion. The place is very nice, typical but elegant, the service is professional, the menu is various and interesting, the price is reasonable and of course the food is delicious. Absolutely the best restaurant in town.

Living nearby Venice, I am very suspicious when it comes down to touristic spots, synonyms of high prices and poor, if not terrible food. Heilbronn's Ratskeller definitely proved me wrong : the venue and atmosphere are very nice, the staff is friendly and the food is more than OK. The owner is a sommelier and he will be more than...

After reading dozens of restaurant reviews I came across this restaurant. It wasn't in my trip route but after the very high reviews I decided to add it to my route. I am glad I did, this restaurant was amazing. I read where reservations were highly recommended but weren't able to make any so when we showed up the beer... More

This is the best restaurant in Heilbronn, athough competion is not very fierce. If you want to enjoy local food, get decent portions and good quality, this is the place to go. The location is great: city centre in the basement of the city hall. I will come back any time!

Food is delicious, service is prompt and courteous. Enjoyed dinner here most recently before an evening on the Theater Boat as part of the dinner and theater package. We've also in the past enjoyed some wedding receptions, lunches, and dinners with family and friends. We've always enjoyed our meals and never had a bad experience.
