Description: The cosy atmosphere of the Gew��lbes in Ratskeller Augsburg is steeped in tradition and extremely inviting, and allows you to get away from the reality of everyday life for a few hours. Whether you opt for something substantial like the 'Wirtshaus classic', or a lighter option such as grilled pike perch on a bed of leaf spinach with lobster sauce and herb potatoes, or something sweet such as caramelised sugared pancake with roasted almonds, raisins and apple mousse, there is something to suit everyone's taste. Children and vegetarians are also well catered for. For example, food cooked in vegetable oil is marked up especially on the menu. Furthermore, the lunchtime menu changes on a daily basis. he drinks menu also caters to your every desire, with anything from cold beer to alcohol-free cocktails, that taste twice as nice during happy hour - anything is possible. As a thrilling alternative, a number of Murder Mystery Dinners are organised throughout the year in Ratskeller in Augsburg.

Ratskeller has a great atmosphere/decoration with its high ceilings, it is a great cellar looking like an old style tavern with a modern touch. However, it has huge space and with all the crowd it really gets loud & noisy inside, pretty much like a beehive or a train station. Basically you have to shout all night long to hear... More

I chose this restaurant reading the great reviews of it on Trip Advisor, but unfortunately I did not have the same experience. The atmosphere was great - it was in the cellar of the Town Hall, the old brick walls, old tables and good music definitely made for an awesome atmosphere. The food, however, was a hit and miss.

We wanted to have a taste of German food in a historical setting and this more than met our needs. Located in the cellar of the old city hall building we were welcomed by friendly and courteous staff who guided us through various menu choices of German cuisine. What a great evening at a popular spot and more that reasonable... More

A restaurant located at the basement of the city hall??? Yes, this is the place! However, the location is just adding to the unique atmosphere of the place. The food is typical and is very good. I would advise to try the local choices. I tried the beef soup (great!) and the white sausage that is served with boiled water... More

What a fantastic place, even though it is quite big the place is nice inside. The service was good and the quality of the food was very good, I'm sure I'll go back next time is Augsburg.

This restaurant has a special environment, you feel like you were in the middle ages. The food was good, although a bit expensive. But you must go and see the interior of this typical bavarian restaurant.

They have good food but the highlight is the location. Its very open and it gives the place a really nice feeling. If your in Augsburg you should at least eat here once, but make a reservation if you are with a few people.

Good solid German food. Good service and friendly serve-staff. Very convenient to reach if you are in the city-center. There are also shops for you to browse and shop. The Christmas Market is just across the street, so the festive mood is way up in the scale.
