Once again the food was excellent. We had 4 fish dishes and a cheese platter and it was amazing. We also had nice wines and champagne. Also the waitress was nice and helpful. In the beginning a little bit slow but after a while she noticed that our glasses were empty ;-). We certainly will go back.

An excellent meal with good selection of wine by the glass wine and attentive but not obtrusive service. A welcome contrast to the two indifferent meals we had in Aachen on the two preceding evenings.

Situated in the ancient cellar of the iconic town hall, this restaurant offers excellent food and wines. Service was attentive but not pressing. There were several large corporate parties the night we were there but they were easily accommodated without any degradation in food perpetration or service. There were good suggestions from the extensive wine list. the antiquity of the... More

We were a party of six out to celebrate on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was not full, mostly locals. Wait staff was available but not hovering. Day old English menu was not identical to the daily German menu but all choices were available. Salmon salad and cod entree were nicely prepared. Wine selection was sensible and diverse. Dessert selections included... More

Popped in for a swift beer whilst visiting the Christmas Markets. Beer choice was limited, but what we had was excellent and not expensive either (cheaper than where we live). Lovely old building. We didn't eat, but the food being served looked really nice.

the restaurant is located in a very very old building linked to the Rataus building. The typical germany food served was of good quality and the service quite reasonable. And the atmosphere of middle age is really worthwhile and impressive.
