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

I love going to this linda of restaurant in Germany! They are located in the Basement of the Townhall! This particular ratskeller has boots separating the customers. It's unique and lovely! The food is excellent! I had duck with purple cabbagge, and Apple filled with marzipan!!! Fabulous!!!

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.

If not for dinner; Go for a beer. It´s a must to have been there. In summertime you can sit outside but that is nothing special.

I am really sorry to write it but I had rather negative feelings after trying to delight with the view of Ratskeller. First of all you can see it completely, because there are tents, and fast-food boxes all around full of tourists staying in queues. You can forget about a good photo as well for the same reason. However I... More

I was in Lubeck for six nights and had dinner at the Ratskeller on three occasions! I was very much taken with the atmosphere and the food. The salted herring was terrific. I loved the schnitzel (I'm a sucker for schnitzel) and everything else I tried was terrific as well. Very efficient servers too! Stop by at least once while... More

We wanted to eat traditional German food during our recent visit to the lovely city of Lubeck. We chose to eat herrings, potato soup, fish platter and wild boar from the extensive menu. The restaurant is in a vaulted cellar space below the old town hall. The service was good, the atmosphere was cheerful and the prices were reasonable. It... More

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.
