We had reserved a table indoors - but at the end of a hot touring day we realized that there was a large garden with an outdoor restaurant as well. Having our cocktails outdoors, the waiter advised us that we could only order from the full restaurant menu until 18:30. This being ok, I went inside to advise the manager... More

It takes a an effort to walk up to the castle, but the food and view are worth the effort. Both indoor and outdoor dining is available, but the menue outside is more limited.

Stopped in twice for a couple of meals. Restaurant is at a nice location just at the town square. It's quite narrow inside and has a nice historic feel / decor which adds to the atmosphere. Restaurant was busy and a couple of items weren't available from the menu on the first day, but were back on the menu the... More

I had a great meat at the Ratsschanke. They have traditional German food and prepare it well. The dining area has an old rustic feel which adds to the experience. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Always a favorite while in Marburg. Food is so delicious with ample servings. My favorite spatzle... Everything here is good. The atmosphere and service is excellent and very good beers. It is located on the town square. Lunch or dinner are great times to visit.

If you are looking for a calm stop to eat something in the beautiful centre of Marburg, this is your place. The service is absolutely pro and pleasant. The food is good: a bit disappointed by the French fries from the supermarket bag, but great meat and vegetables, perfect beers. We ordered two dishes that were enough for three people.... More

We visited Ratsschanke on recommendations from Tripadvisor, while on a family day trip to Marburg. The restaurant is located in the main market square, but hidden away in a corner (near the Rathaus), in a building currently undergoing renovation. It is quite small, only 10 tables or so arranged in a long room, and so is not very convenient with... More

At least once a year I visit Marburg and my family and we then always make it a traditonal standard to visit the beautiful and historic Ratsschaenke located in the heart of the old town "Altstadt" and right next to the historic "Rathaus" (City Hall) and "Marktplatz" (market palce). This holiday period we went there three times and every single... More

Food was tasty and service was good but nothing particularly special. Good value for money and would definitely go again but just "nothing to write home about".
