Excellent Bratwurst and Beer!

We had a wonderful lunch here of Bratwurst, Curry Wurst and potato pancakes. Wunderbar! We really enjoyed all of it and the beer was as wonderful as we thought it would be

Situated in the cellar of the old Town Hall at the central Market, this restaurant is undoubtedly very popular with the tourists. And therein lies the inherent danger of becoming a tourist trap. I'm not calling it that, but I have had better meals at lower prices. We have dined there twice; as a couple and with friends, last time... More

We chose this restaurant because it was in the old market, had outdoor seating and traditional food. We tried the currywurst and arugula salad -- both very decent -- with large steins of beer. The price was decent, and the atmosphere fun. There was live (US country) music in the market on the day we ate here!

The Ratskeller proved to be a great go-to place for food and drinks for our extended group. Very central, very reasonable, friendly, accomodating AND GREAT FOOD! In contrast to much of this town, the serving staff are fluent in English. We were accomodated with or without reservations and enjoyed relaxed time together with friends over dinner and / or snacks... More

The place has fantastic small booths in the basement and sure looks cool. However the place was dirty, the food was not special and it took time to get the staffs attention. Although the food was not really bad, I would not go there again.

Having recently visited Lubeck for the first time felt it essential to eat dinner at the Ratskeller, and am glad I did. Clearly very popular, and a single diner cannot be the management's first choice, but without fuss a table was found, and service was neither hurried nor tardy. Just looking at the decor was enjoyable, and my meal was... More

Had a dinner here with my family of 4. Good serving of food with very fair price. The restaurant has a very nice ambience and staffs are very friendly. The restuarant is family friendly with handicapped access.

A nice, very traditional restaurant in the old town of Luebeck. Has been there "forever". The layout of the restaurant is unique and place is filled with history. The only negative thing is that the mnue is quite limited if you want to eat prior the dinner time. Food was very good, though.

Helpful staff even if they didn't have much English and menus in different languages to make it easier for tourists. Good German food which is what we asked for. Plenty of space and an impressive interior with heraldic shields, vaulted painted ceilings and dark oak timbers. Lovely place!
