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!

Its worth the visit. A piece of German history rolled into a restaurant. Food was excellent and really not that expensive. The service is very attentive.

This place rocks! Excellent sauces. Schnitzel was amazing. Great wines at great prices. Some of the best food I’ve had in Germany.

We came here for our final meal in Munich based on all the good reviews. The atmosphere is really cosy and we had a nice booth style table. Service was typically German in style; efficient but not particularly friendly. We didn't realise quite how big this restaurant was when we arrived, it seats over 1000 covers, but you would never imagine this as areas are really well sectioned. Prices were quite high for the type of food it was I thought. We found the food to be ok, nothing special. When the bill came we wanted to pay with card and we were told we had to write what tip we were giving on the bill in quite an aggressive manner. I informed our waitress that we intended to leave a tip in cash. I then had to walk all the way to the back of the restaurant to pay as the machine didn't work. I tried to make conversation with the waitress but she wasn't friendly at all. I have never been anywhere where I have been ordered to tip, we found this shocking behaviour. We won't be returning.

One of the first things I do when visiting Munich, after checking into my hotel, is to have lunch at the Ratskeller, a truly great restaurant, and that is what I did upon arriving in the Bavarian capital a little over a week ago. I have dined in the restaurant proper and in the Rathaus courtyard - both are great dining venues. On my most recent visit I sat insied and had my usual - Wiener schnitzel with fried potatoes and a mixed salad, accompanied with a couple of glasses of beer. The food is delicious, the service is attentive and efficient, and the ambiance is appropriately Bavarian.
