Superb atmosphere, nice hanseatic cooking

I have been there several times with family and friends. Nice selection of hanseatic food, obviously awesome wines (for all pockets).

Make sure you have a wine in the cellar. It is oozing history. Well worth it. Book a booth in advance.

Me and my spouse went here for our easter meal. We were not disappointed! Food was excellent and great value for money. The wine list is very comprehensive, and the ambiance is very striking indeed. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Small beers but cool location. I had the lamb skewed and really liked it but my colleague did not. I would go here again it was a nice interior.

Set in the cellars of the Ratskeller, this place looks super, with the ancient oak barrels, vaulted whitewashed ceilings and lovely furniture. Historical settings are all very well, but I expect food to be edible. Having chosen the turkey/pork mixture, after a few mouthfuls, I not only discovered that the food was undercooked, it was raw and bloody inside. Beef... More

The place was spectacular, but the food and service could really be better. Staff seems bored and will not extend themselves for you. Ho hum.

Have a feast in an old cellar! Excellent atmosphere, but I didn't like the food very much, but maybe that's just me not liking the traditional German food.

Enjoyed a delicious German-style pork filet with hash-browned potatoes for a very reasonable lunch price. Atmosphere was warm and the service very friendly. Giant barrels and dining nooks make for a great ambiance whether it's a date or a business lunch.

This place is fantastic! Just go in for a look, the huge barrels are decorated beautifully, and vaulted ceilings and private booths really add atmosphere. Not the cheapest, but very very nice. Just be careful going down the stairs!!
