Our tour guide to Neuswastine tipped us off to a good restaurant in Augsburg, the Ratskeller, it wasn't a good restaurant it was a great one. We all agreed it was the best dining experience we had in Germany. Located in the cavernous basement of the city hall it is very large an at that we were still lucky to... More

German cuisine, expertly prepared and gigantic portions make this a 'must' in Augsburg. The restaurant is quite large but with an excellent historic atmosphere that's been modernised. The staff were helpful and friendly. Very reasonable prices too! But reserve in advance because it's very popular with locals and is always full.

I am not really a pork eater but I am now converted. The pork schnitzel was delicious and tender and huge. This restaurant has a beautiful outdoor setting. We came here with my husbands aunt and uncle who live in Augsburg. There were no spare tables left however they were happy to accommodate us especially when they knew my husband... More

In this very old German town you can be surprised by historical sites, nice landscapes and eating well besides drinking beer. The Ratskeller Restaurant, located in the basement of the town hall and having a very nice architecture, has gotten a very good atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. I've been there twice and would go there again eventually.

Top rated on trip advisor and excellent Bavarian style food - and lots of it. Watch the English translations - not always what you expect. Reasonable prices too.

The food, the atmosphere and interiors are all really great. I would go there again. I actually have been there more than once over the past 3 years and I can't find anything to complain about. I can recommend it to anyone visiting Augsburg

I was visiting a friend in Augsburg and he brought me here for a literal taste of the local flavor. It's located in the basement of the Augsburg Rathaus (City Hall), and as the space is owned by the city, the restaurant can keep its prices low. The quality of the food, beverages, and service do not suffer for it.... More

Visited with family not great food large portions but not very well seasoned at the end after they had put on service charge to the bill the waiter asked if he could add a tip to my credit card ! I refused as it had been included and I didn't think his service was anything special. Then as we left... More

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.
