Description: The restaurant is located in the very heart of Germany´s secret capital - the Marienplatz of Munich. There is no way you will get more down-town, since the Ratskeller is located in the cellar of the new town hall - built in the late 19th century... There are few places where you get to see more history while enjoying some of Munich´s best traditional dishes... We certainly do offer vegan and vegetarian meals, too. Approx. 20% of our menu consists of meat-free food. We really hope to see you here soon!

Sometimes it is worth to try this kind of very touristy places. Accidentally bumped into Ratskeller we gave it a chance. Though not a paleo restaurant ;O), you can find some hochdeutsch food here, eg. try their bratwurst demo selection. The place has numerous halls inside with charming decoration and funny (later annoying bayer folk music). Waiters generally OK but do not wait too much smiles from them, they are always on the run. In the lavatory is cold in November and compared to the restaurant it is quite downscale in quality. Still the whole restaurant gives you a unique Munich feeling.

This is a very big restaurant (in terms of size) in a very central location. We went in the evening and the waiters were quite rude and non-responsive and the food was just ordinary. Our overall experience was very disappointing and this was one of our least favourite meals in Munich.

Stopped in to Ratskeller on a busy Tuesday night in Munich. The restaurant is very deceiving in size. It is quite large & hidden underground but doesn't appear that way at first. There are lots of nooks & crannies that have tables & a really quaint atmosphere. I loved out little nook off the beaten path that had great views to the left & right & into a little work area for the staff. It was people watching at its very best. Our waiter was extremely charming & friendly & we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The food was very good & the beer was top notch. You get the old world feeling when you enter Ratskellar. Don't pass it by, stop in, have a beer & enjoy people watching at it's finest. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, couples, families, business or solo it has enough warmth & charm to welcome everyone!

We went on a Saturday night and this place was packed! We really didn't fancy our chances of getting a table but we went to reception and were escorted to our table straight away.

We ordered our food then relaxed with our drinks expecting to be kept waiting for a while as they were so busy. This didn't bother us as there was a great atmosphere and the building itself is pretty spectacular to look at!

Our meals were delivered much quicker than we expected and were fantastic. I tried the shank steak and can recommend it.

The staff were all very hard working, friendly and efficient and deserved their tip!

I would definitely recommend that you eat an/or drink here whilst in Munich. Don't be put off if you walk in and can't see any tables available, the staff have a knack of finding one for you!

Amazing and huge place under streets of munich, staff very friendly and luckily found us a table in a little alcove. We didn't eat but drinks were good and was very busy, had a magician come to the table which was good too, would hugely recommend this place to visit if you are in munich!
