A very old (since 1405) historic restaurant. Nice to sit outside and watch the world go by in the square opposite over a beer. Eat outside or alternatively in the lovely and traditional cellar restaurant. Really good local menu. Hearty and tasty.

We had dinner in this Kneipe. Food is really good, not only meat but also fresh fish. Atmosphere is nice and not noisy as in some breweries. Prices are set in a good level. Guys managing the business are kind. Without any doubt, I will go back in my next trip to Bremen.

One of the oldest buildings downtown, the cellar of the Rathaus in Bremen preserves a lot of history, offering good food in a nice atmosphere. Service is also very good and when you arrive ask for a table in one of the wine barrels.

The place is very beautiful and breath-taking from history point of view, the service is very good too. The food itself was not superb, but very solid and with "traditional german choices". Very well worth a visit.

At a recent conference in Bremen, our group held a dinner for 250 in the Ratskeller Celler. Wow! It was absolutely gorgeous! Our guests enjoyed a huge buffet of beautiful and deliscious foods. Good food. Good service. Good setting. Don't miss it.

We enjoyed our one visit and it's an experience not to be missed. It was a bit more sophisticated and subdued that we expected. As mentioned there are tables and benches in the cellar as well as a few smaller booths. I believe there are guided tours on certain afternoons that take you through the cellar tunnels were many many... More

It was really interesting to eat in a restaurant that is older than the United States! The food felt authentic, and our relative, who lives nearby, enjoys the place. The menus have English translations, and most of the staff speaks English as well.
