The entrance to the restaurant, down stairs and corridors with bare walls, seems very unpromising, but inside the place has a very lively atmosphere, and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Bavarian food is renowned for being hearty, and the Ratskeller certainly doesn't disappoint on that score. The noise levels are quite high, probably helped by the wooden floor... More

We sat outside on a lovely summer's evening. The food was good and Ratskeller had a nice, friendly atmosphere.

Beautiful restaurant in the restored Rathaus. The vaulted brick ceiling and dark wood doors really add to the atmosphere. Our family enjoyed typical German fare of Schweinebraten, sausages, and spätzle. Portions were well sized and delicious. Service was efficient as they had tables reserved for Euro Cup but they attended to us well.

If you want to try typical Bavarian food in Augsburg, this is the place to go to! In the cellar of the town hall, a very large location, I don't even think you need a reservation, at least I was there three times and I was lucky each time. Also a large variety of cocktails and happy hour. Nice and... More

For day visitors a good choice because of the outdoor dining possibility on the Rathaus square. The food it nice, but do not expect too much - its the German variant of Italian food. great place for evenings and at night when the weather is warm enough to sit outside.

If you are popping into Augsburg's Rathaus, this is definitely a great place to stop in for a snack or a meal. The space is really nicely done, menu will have something for everyone, and the selection of beverages is up to standard. Franconian and flatbread dishes are the standouts.

Don't get me wrong, it is ok if you haven't been to a German Ratskeller before. The food is just about average though. I was there in the middle of the asparagus season, and these vegetables were ok. But the fact that you had to choose the largest portions kind of put me off (I wasn't very hungry at the... More

The Ratskeller as its name indicates is located in the town hall's cellar. The room is impressive with its high brick vaults and columns. It's a pity that the meals are not of the same quality. Several reasons for the disappointment: first the level of noise is such that it is nearly impossible to talk even with the persons sitting... More

Very nice ambiance (high ceiling, modern bar), with very kind and professional service. They offer traditional German food with good quality. Especially the Kaiserschmarn we can recommend.

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.
