“Wonderful Swabian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

My wife and I met one of my Fraternity brothers who moved to Germany shortly after graduation (which was quite a few years ago) and has become rather immersed on German culture, this is the place he too us to introduce us to authentic German food. His recommendation: Maultaschen and Spätzle. We tried both and our very American palates were quite happy, delicious food.

The atmosphere was nice and proved to be typical of the nicer German establishments we visited our trip. The price, while higher than we expected was inline with other choices. I highly recommend a visit.

“Wonderful Location and Excellent Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

The Ratskeller hosted our company's annual Holiday Party last year in December. It was an absolutely wonderful experience due, in no small part, to the outstanding support of the Ratskeller staff and in particular the manager Herr Hauber. They worked extensively with the planning team to ensure a fantastic event for the 110 people attending. The food was very well prepared (we did a seated dinner vs. a buffet) and they provided several special menu items for particular dietary needs, the atmosphere charming, and the drinks never stopped. Having the restaurant so close to the Christmas Markets added a unique level of ambiance to the entire event. 5 stars all around.

“Pricey but worth it.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Don't let the name fool you. This is a very authentic German restaurant. It's nicer than a lot of the commercial, run of the mill places in downtown Stuttgart. You'll pay a bit more than most places in the area but the food is excellent and the service is outstanding.

“Down Home German Kitchen and Cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

If you are going to be in Stuttgart for some meeting or convention, this is a must stop place. Not fancy, just good German cooking. It must be authentic because the locals all eat there.

Located in the center of town at the town square, it is not difficult to find.

We were there during the Christmas Market and should have made reservations. All the good tables were gone, but they were able to accommodate us. Menu is not extensive so you know it is freshly made every day.

We were seated and our drink order was taken immediately. A little mix up but it was taken care of by our wait staff. Food arrived promptly, well prepared and hot. The wait staff run their feet off especially when they are filled to capacity.

Not a bad place to take the family and have a great meal. There were children of all ages there.

Give it a try.
