As many of the restaurants under or close to the mayors building, the food is really decent and authentic. The location is priceless and historic - I like it there.

Even the kids ate all the food. Nice historic souroundings. We booked a table, but the bookingsystem didn't work...we showet up and got a nice table and kids were given toys while waiting for the food. Our waitress was nice, but she couldn't much English...she didn't drink alkohol either so the wine recomandations were poor...we ordered very nice dinner and... More

When in Lubrec we asked a local where we could eat traditional German food and she directed us to an old establishment in the square next to the Second Gate. We proceeded downstairs to be delighted by what we saw, wooden panelled individual booths, each dedicated to a famous countryman. Very German! We sat in the Thomas Mills booth and,... More

Located very centrally, Ratskeller provides customers with a very nice atmosphere of warm wooden furniture. The food is good, not superior, but very in line with the prices - quite cheap. The meat and the beers are of good quality, while the rest is low than average. But after all... I guess it's the traditional German food approach!

We had lunch in this restaurant with our three kids and we spent a nice time. Food is basic but good and prices are reasonable. Service was very nice. The place has a medieval decoration which works well with children. Good menu of local specialties but you can also find some classic german snack such as currywurst or schnitzels. Child... More

Went there with my family. My wife ordered the knuckle of pork and was served a boiled fatty, salty piece of pink meat. When we commented to the staff that this was inedible, they initially removed the dish and offered a replacement. When my wife declined, the head waitress came over and starting arguing with us claiming that it was... More

Lübeck is confident and proud of her Hanseatic heritage, and Ratskeller fits well in this historical line. When entering the restaurant, you get catched by the environment, leaving no doubt that this restaurant has been here "for ever" and so will be. The food is based on classical Holsteinische Küche which is the right thing to eat in Lübeck. You... More
