A long way down the stairs and this huge cellar opens up. Very rustic place. Excellent food and service; nice seasonal menu, great selection of wines, really worth a visit. Place was quite busy with locals.

What an experience! The cellar setting is great and amusing. The food is too good to pass up. If you have a chance, its worth coming down and taking a bite down underground. Worth it!

It is nicely located and the selection of dishes was good. Unfortunately, the waiter wanted to close the place soon at least for us and almost pushed us outside shortly before 22. He may have informed us when we entered at about 21:00.

Wonderful and historic dining room, in a cellar as the name indicates, with just the atmosphere you would expect! Nice menu, rather typical and nothing too exciting, but the food was very nice. Definitely a place to go to celebrate something special or even a romantic lunch.

This is a nicely atmospheric keller with low lighting, good Bischoff beer, and tasty local cuisine. It was necessary to use our pidgin Deutsch, but the waiter didn't bat an eye when taking an order for the Pfalz speciality saumagen (when in Die Pfalz....) Portions are plentiful, service prompt, and two large slices of spam-ish saumagen were both hearty and... More

Nice place in the center of Speyer with a delicious food. Interior is is like old basement and it is nice, the service is good and the food is very good. It seam like it is a popular place because there was a lot of people.

the restaurant is big but well designed & provides for privacy. our male server was smug but gave good recommendations, which is something one has to get used to with German behaviour - not friendly but competent. Our meals were huge & satisfying, fine dining on German proportion. I can definitely ignore the smugness for competence & reliability.

Visited Speyer this week. Had lunch in the Ratskeller. The food was impressive as was the Bischoff beer. Prices are reasonable and the food outstanding.

The Ratskeller is one of the best restaurants in Speyer with no doubt and has been so for many years. Aside from the beautiful setting in the cellar of the historical townhall, what sets this traditional German eatery apart is that it is family- run and excellent classic food is served with really fresh and mostly local ingredients.
