We tried earlier today to book a table for this evening but we were told it was fully booked. However the guy said that if we turned up at 8 or 8·30 we might be lucky. We did and we were. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, the service was speedy and the food was excellent. I had a pork... More

This is a very popular restaurant and famous around Bremen. It serves traditional German food and good beer. I was here as part of a large international party from work. We were promptly seated on arrival and had a large table to the side of the restaurant. The waiting staff were attentive and very efficient. I had the potato soup... More

Luckily we booked a table, the waiter/owner? Was brilliant as we don't speak German and guided us through the menu even though it was very busy. The food arrived very quickly and was piping hot - great mixed fish dish for me and schnitzels for the others- big portions and all very tasty- smiles from all the staff- definitely recommend...

Great service, excellent wines. The food is ok but the real reason to go here is because of the cellar's atmosphere. Incredible setting in between the huge wine barrels.

Enough options for vegetarians. Also people who don't eat gluten, dairy products or vegans have options here. The vegetarian Gnocchi was excellent, although the portion was a bit small.

Stunning building with restaurant in cellar. Classic German fare and surroundings. Got in early as filled up the coach loads of tourists later. Food consistent and good. Everyone happy. Beer, delivered quickly and often. Worth a look if you're here for a few days...

The Ratskeller is written up in many tourist guides as an attraction worth seeing, even if you don't want to eat anything. It certainly is with its heavily carved and decorated barrel ends, extensive underground vaults and interesting nooks and crannies. But the standard of food is also reliable. We were attracted by the local specialities and lovers of corned... More

Classic inatitution in Bremen. The food is good and very traditional. The beer was fresh and tasted good. For bigger groups a good glance on Bremen's traditional cousine

The food is probably average (but not bad in any way!), but the atmosphere is excellent in this historic setting. And the service is very good too. I had written the restaurant in advance to see if I could make a reservation for one of the small Priölke. I received a very friendly answer and got a Priölke as requested.... More

We went here to have dinner. The place is very big. The food that we ordered came quick. The quality of the food was okay, probably a bit overpriced. If you are in a hurry and want to eat fast in a nice atmosphere, then go to the Bremer Ratskeller.
