Went here a few times on a business trip. The service is fair and the location is great on top of this the food was simply great. Swabish food is really filling and here the menu is wide enough for everybody

After viewing the exterior of the Rathaus, we entered the Ratskeller, located on the ground floor, where we had lunch. My wife and I each had a beer; for her meal, my wife selected a mixed salad and Swabian ravioli, while I ordered Wiener schnitzel with potato salad. We enjoyed our selections. We found the service to be efficient.

Plenty of seating, wide menu, good service. Be prepared for a filling meal if you order an Swabische meal. Salads are very generous & have a good variety of ingredients. The restaurants Hausbrauerei Barfusse Blonde beer was a good choice for the meal I chose.

Had a schnitzel and beer lunch. Edible but not exceptional, although the spaetzle with cheese and onion was pretty good. Service fairly slow during a time not terribly busy time. Sorry to say nothing compels me to go back.

I have to join others who call the place a traditional restaurant. It really is a one. Service was prompt and friendly. The meat was juicy. The beer was very good (of course we were in Germany:-)). Clean space with pleasant smell of a kitchen.

We visited this restaurant as my cousin has told me is one of the best to go when visiting Ulm, and because is not expensive. As it was August, we sit in the terrace, although it was night, but the weather was very good. We asked for a menú in English, as we are Spanish, and they don't have it... More

Nothing special, standard fare. The vegetarian flammkuchen were good. Fine for a snack for the family

Well, the Ratskeller already had several owners in the past. This time this seems to be sustainable. Kitchen is good, nothing fancy. Service is good as well. The outside seating is nice especially during summer. The atmosphere inside is authentic.
