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.

This was our one night in Ulm and we wanted a typical local venue that wasn't just meat and sausage. Bit am Rathaus did the trick with lots of space in the main part of the restaurant and some private dining rooms down the sides. The restaurant is under the main part of the Rathaus but isn't a cellar. As... More

The terrace offers comfortable seating on a sunny day while enjoying the beautiful architecture and painted walls of the Rathaus. The maultaschen (one can refer to it as a big ravioli stuffed with meat and veggies) was excellent and so is the spatzle.

Ate here quite a few times, they have a really good, thin, crispy schnitzel. Flammenkuchen wasn't great. Service was always good. There was a sewage smell at the entrance.... everytime.... it was weird.

It's a very beautiful restaurant, with a round crystal chandelier that looks amazing. The decoration is very special. The food is good, traditional German food, and the desserts are very good, just the service was a little slow in the day we've been there, maybe because it was a Friday night.

A nice place to visit in the heart of the medieval old town of Ulm. We decided to have coffee and cake outside, despite the gathering storm clouds from the west! Prompt and friendly server, and we finished our cake just in time before the first spots of rain began to fall. We decided to move indoors into the warmth,... More

The building is very interesting and we were made welcome but we didn't rate the cakes we had very highly. It might be more of a meals and beer drinking place than a coffee shop, so might appeal to a young crowd in the evening. We didn't return.

Given some of the reviews we were a little wary about eating here but it was very close to our hotel and after a long day driving we were tired and needed to eat quickly. We did. Service was speedy and the German style pizza, flammkuchen, was huge and delicious. The schnitzel and cheese noodles were also great. Good range... More
