Very interesting concept, kinda quirky from the inside, something different, cozy. The food was good to very good (one part of the rib was really fall of the bone, the other end was bone dry; the tuna tartar had to much mustard sauce in it, killed the tuna taste; the dessert was very, very rich). vegan options! The waiters were... More

Wide variety, reasonably priced, attentive service. Good choice for Sunday brunch. Home made desserts too.

Ramsi's Cafe On the World is located in the Louisville highlands on Bardstown road. This area is full of small shops, restaurants and bars, and it's cool to walk around so it kind of makes it a destination place to eat. We've been there 3 or four times when travelling through Louisville. The Good: there's a full menu of eclectic... More

Tasty food, but would appreciate bigger variety, and "menu of the day". One doesn't get the impression the chef is interested in experimenting with different kinds of dishes.

Absolutely loved the food. Huge portions - so plan to share. Great variety and all fresh ingredients. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the city. But, our server was young, inexperienced, messed up our order, didn't know the alcohol, and was extremely slow. Kept forgetting to come back.

While our food was perfectly acceptable, there are so many other places that are great. We started with a middle eastern appetizer plate to share which was simple and good. Tuna tar tar was lacking, tomatoes and mozzarella were fine. All of our entrees, Caribbean ribs, calamari and Indian Paella were all good, just not amazing. Nice servers and a... More

We chose this place because we enjoy ethnic foods and Ramsi's did not disappoint. The menu has a little of everything, but leans more towards a Mediterranean trend. We had the hummus plate with warm pita, the Faithful Falafel, the Duck Mofongo, and some Bourbon from their impressively long list to chose from. Our son had the kid's mini Bison... More

Love this area of Louisville. Stopped in on a late Sunday afternoon and had no wait. Menu is broad and seems very good. We sampled three dishes and would love to go back and try the Sunday buffet.

Was excited to eat here after seeing the menu and looking for some healthy vegetarian food. Nice decor and ambience however food was not good, it was soooo salty and literally drowning in soy sauce, like soy sauce rice soup. Made me feel really ill and was such a waste of great produce. Not recommended.

Thank Lis M
