Good value for money in a central place

I do like this place a lot. This is not the finest food in the world, for sure, but the taste is nice and the prices are soft (less than 10€ for a very nice scalop... local beers for less than 4€ for 50cl..). Cocktails are also very cheap from 6-8pm, and after 10pm. On weekend, please dont... read more

Ordered the steak with pasta and fried onion. The onion wasn't great, but the steak was decent. Service was kind but slow. More than 45 minutes waiting for our meal.

It was our second, and probably last time at Ratskeller in Augsburg. We went for a late lunch, so the the place was not even half full. Anyhow, the music was much too loud and definitely wrong kind of music for a restaurant where one is supposed to eat. The atmosphere was more like in a lounge for young and... More

Had dinner here with some expat Italian friends recently. I was expecting the traditional German decor, but was surprised to find a modern looking restaurant and several very cool lounge areas. Fare was standard Bavarian with a few innovations. I had a pork roast which was delicious. Others had steak (looked great), a pasta dish and a mixed grill. We... More

This is a really nice restaurant. The location is super, just under the Rathaus! The service is really good, they take care of you! Usually I don´t like so much German food, but here you can taste any kind of dishes you like. I suggest particularly the special menú they offer during some particular periods (like in October and in... More

We very much enjoyed dining at this restaurant during our visit to Augsburg. Menu includes a great selection of German dishes, lots of beer choices, service was excellent and the price was very reasonable. The atmosphere and ambience easily met my expectations when we had decided we wanted to experience a true German meal.

It's good to see a barman who knows his trade for once and luckily speaks perfect English. The food and atmosphere here are excellent and the service brisk. Can't fault this place and go back every time I am in Augsburg.
