This is a place to enjoy everything traditional, both in the food and the space itself, at its best. The historic interior is wonderful, with vaulted ceilings lots of cozy little booths decorated with photographs and memorabilia of notable people from Lübeck. The food is hearty and tasty and the service good.

Didn't pick this restaurant in advance, just came across it by the Townhall, wonderful interior, super food and service. If you like an 'olde worlde' vibe then this is ideal for you. Good choice of food available, served with nice style, attentive staff and reasonable prices. They had some small booths and larger tables so great for parties of all... More

This time there were 5 of us and we were originally given an alcove for 4 with an extra chair, however, when a bigger table became available, this was offered to us. Excellent! We had lots of room, our granddaughter was kept busy with the... More

If you want to eat traditional german food, visit the Ratskeller! Wide choice of fish and seafood including northern specialities such as salted herring and salmon. Tasty dishes, quick and professional service all reasonably priced.

Are you after traditional German food? Are you very hungry? If yes, this is definitely you restaurant. This restaurant serves very good and simple food. It is traditional, interesting and in a way you feel history there. Service was a little bit impassive but not unfriendly. This is not usual because usually German waiters and waitresses are very cheery. Maybe... More

Tall beer glasses, herrings for starters, lots of sausage-based dishes and schnitzels. Yep, this is the real deal! It's in the cellar below the Town Hall, all wooden tables and chairs in wooden booths, each decorated with photographs and documents from old Lubeck. A very pleasant environment to while away a few hours and start to get a feel for... More
