To be visited when in Lübeck

Lübeck is confident and proud of her Hanseatic heritage, and Ratskeller fits well in this historical line. When entering the restaurant, you get catched by the environment, leaving no doubt that this restaurant has been here "for ever" and so will be.

I'd say most places in Germany have a Ratskeller or Ratsstube, literally the place where the town councillors went to eat and drink. Most of the ones I've tried are mediocre at best but this was nice. The place is huge, with an amazing decor that makes it feel cosy and personal. The staff are friendly and efficient, and the...

I really liked the private semi enclosed booths full of pictures and interesting information. The service was friendly and helpful and the food top quality, not the cheapest but very fair. Great location right by the Xmas market

This place is just a very traditional German restaurant. We had pork fillet and a Jaegar schnitzel, both cooked perfectly and tasting excellent. The building itself is in the cellar of the old town hall, and again, very "German". We loved it here.

We were after a traditional German dinner and had been recommended the Ratskeller. We found it very easily and although we didn't have a booking on a Saturday night they were able to fit is in without any fuss or bother. We were able to have an English menu which it made it easier for us to choose our dishes.... More

Many cities have a Ratskeller eatery, but this one is by far one of thee best in Germany. The food was outstanding and the beer on tap was nearly limitless.

With a holiday marking 25 years since reunifucation most restaurants were closed in Lubeck but not the Ratskeller. We found a booth dedicated to Thimas Mann and amid a great buzz of conversation had a simple but very tasty meal and a good beer.

There is a lot to like about this place. Food offerings are on the whole completely standard German fare, but they are well done, large in portion, and cheap. The range of on tap beer offerings is not huge, but perfectly adequate to allow everyone something of their preference. You can sit in front, right on the Lubeck main square;... More
