Good quality and reasonably priced traditional German food served in an atmospheric venue in the centre of Augsburg. The high ceiling cellar gives a very spacious feel to the place. The beer is excellent!

Location in the basement of the Rathaus (city hall). Enter through a door on the side of the building, go down a bland stairway, then you enter a large interesting space with domed ceiling and a few levels of seating. Food was good, try something with the Knudel. Wasn't a tourist trap type of place at all, rather a traditional... More

We are here with a large group and enjoyed the food and ambiance. The service was a bit slow, but we did have 18 people! It has a great atmosphere and our group tried just about every dish and each person was happy. I ordered the schnitzel and it was tasty, but the fries were thick steak fries which I... More

I loved the atmosphere, it really got me the local feeling. The food was delicious and typical German, the staff really nice. All in all, it was a very very nice experience for my first night in Augsburg.

We found it while walking around the old town. It is in the basement of the Rathaus and offers typical Bavarian dishes. We love their schnitzel and pork knuckle, and the portion is huge!

This place is just off the main street and square in Augsburg, but you wouldn't know it unless you were a local. The restaurant is underneath the Rathaus (Council hall) in what used to be the old stables. Great atmosphere and location. The service was quick and easy and the food was excellent. They way they make their schnitzels superb.... More

Went for lunch. Drinks were great. Who doesn't love a German Beer? Food was okay. But the service was horrible! We got our seats and the waitress came over to give us our menus. Then she never came back... We sat there forever. People who came long after we had got there were getting their drinks and food before we... More

This is a hopping place! Great steak, Wiener schnitzel and beer. Apple studel was fabulous! Servers were super busy and meals slightly delayed but we enjoyed being there so much we didn't mind!

We ventured out in the evening, not really knowing where we were going to go for dinner, and ended up at the ratskeller. We waited over half an hour, as it was very busy, but we were finally seated by a very friendly waitress. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal, and would return again.

Went here for lunch on our trip in Germany. My wife had the wienerschnitzel and I had the steak and noodles. Both were very good. I also had a Riegele aechtes dunkel beer. Excellent. This was one of the best meals we had while in Germany this trip.

Thank kj7hz

The cosy atmosphere of the Gew��lbes in Ratskeller Augsburg is steeped in tradition and extremely inviting, and allows you to get away from the reality of everyday life for a few hours.

Whether you opt for something substantial like the 'Wirtshaus classic', or a lighter option such as grilled pike perch on a bed of leaf spinach with lobster sauce and herb potatoes, or something sweet such as caramelised sugared pancake with roasted almonds, raisins and apple mousse, there is something to suit everyone's taste. Children and vegetarians are also well catered for. For example, food cooked in vegetable oil is marked up especially on the menu. Furthermore, the lunchtime menu changes on a daily basis.

he drinks menu also caters to your every desire, with anything from cold beer to alcohol-free cocktails, that taste twice as nice during happy hour - anything is possible. As a thrilling alternative, a number of Murder Mystery Dinners are organised throughout the year in Ratskeller in Augsburg.
