Good food

We went there for dinner. I booked a small cabine which was quite cool. Good fish and friendly staff. The prices are a bit higher but worth it

Too many people, too much noise, a dull menu - so go for a short walk down and look and hurry away again.

Today we went to the beautiful city of Bremen, Germany. After a long day of shopping we decided to have dinner in the Bremer Raatskeller. It's a beautiful location and is actually a basement of a 17th century building. Service seems to be in a hurry. Hardly time for advice. Not at all friendly. The food was the biggest disappointment.... More

We were very late with our lunch and happy that this restaurant still was open and offering a huge menu. Service was excellent and very attentive. All food tasted great and came in combination with a nice view to the huge barrels in the spacious rooms.

The trouble,( if it is a trouble,that is) where to choose to eat in Bremen. The choice are many and varied. All look tempting and inviting. With no table reservation my wife and I plumped for Bremen Ratskeller because of the aesthetics more than anything else. If you want an authentic German beer cellar atmosphere this is definitely the place... More

a couple of weeks in advance we did reserve a table in one of the small boxes called "priôlken. The cellar is very impressive and we was looking forward to a nice meal. Unfortunately this was not completely fulfilled - for starters we got the local potato soup which was ok and the cream crap soup. This soup could have... More

I've been alone during a job travel. No problem in having a table even without reservation. Good and various menu with English translation. Service very kind and fast. The cold beer in cold mug is super !!! Low price in a very nice Keller. For romantic porpouse little rooms are available.

The Rathaus itself is a UNSECO World Heritage Site, it and the Ratskeller are still all the original material from the early 1400s. So it feels like you are sitting in a piece of history when you are there. And it still looks very old fashioned with giant kegs, wooden benches, and decorations including coats of arms. It is a...

Built in 1405, this is clean and well presented and entirely genuine. The vaulted ceilings are now painted white but would need to have been after centuries of candle smoke. Warned by the locals that it is a tourist trap, it was, in fact a very worthwhile experience. The service was A Class, the food was excellent, from the beef... More
