Very good service on a standard food restaurant

At this restaurant you can order regular german food. The food is okay, but the service is very good. The waiter was very aware of all the customers. You can sit outside and have the view of a lot of old and beautiful buildings. We recommend this restaurant.

This ratskeller is quite relaxing as it is casual and comfy. There are cute little cubicles with tables. There are many model ships decorating the restaurant adding to its local charm. There are local dinners which are delicious.

Typical beer cellar under the Town Hall. It was surprisingly quiet (early weekday evening) as the food was good value and tasty. Portions were large (neither of us could finish our meals) and full of flavour. The vegetables were cooked more than we are used to (which seems to be the German way). Decent beer selection - a couple of... More

This is probably the best place in Lübeck to have grönkohl, the regional dish made from kale. It's a fun atmosphere, in the cellar of an old town hall, and the food is hearty and regional.

The Lubeck Ratskeller is the cellar for the Lubeck Town Hall. A fine piece of architecture in the corner of a large and -for our visit - sunny square. The restaurant for the public is in the cellar whilst there are rooms to hire for private functions. Thomas Mann mentions the Ratskeller in his book 'The Budenbrooks' but you do... More

The restaurant is in a vaulted cellar space bellowing to the old town hall. The service was good but the waitresses are not very friendly. The atmosphere was nice and the prices reasonable. We had local typical food. I would really recommend a visit because it has a quite different architecture.

The name says it all. The "Rat Cellar" is one of the most amazing location of the city situated in the Old Town's archaeological underground. Huge cellar composed of many places with small alcoves for a private and intimate dinner or large rooms to accommodate big groups of late comers who failed to book a table... all this in a... More

We had good food in a cozy atmosphere. For a very touristy area, prices were decent, service was good, and portions were adequate. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, but there well might be better choices not too far away.
