Description: The cosy atmosphere of the Gew��lbes in Ratskeller Augsburg is steeped in tradition and extremely inviting, and allows you to get away from the reality of everyday life for a few hours. Whether you opt for something substantial like the 'Wirtshaus classic', or a lighter option such as grilled pike perch on a bed of leaf spinach with lobster sauce and herb potatoes, or something sweet such as caramelised sugared pancake with roasted almonds, raisins and apple mousse, there is something to suit everyone's taste. Children and vegetarians are also well catered for. For example, food cooked in vegetable oil is marked up especially on the menu. Furthermore, the lunchtime menu changes on a daily basis. he drinks menu also caters to your every desire, with anything from cold beer to alcohol-free cocktails, that taste twice as nice during happy hour - anything is possible. As a thrilling alternative, a number of Murder Mystery Dinners are organised throughout the year in Ratskeller in Augsburg.

My girlfriend and I chose to have dinner at this restaurant based on the great score it had - and we weren't disappointed! We are on a 6 week trip through Europe and we still talk about the dessert at this place almost every day.

The food and beer is all very good, but the best reason to come here is the kaiserschmarrn (traditional Bavarian dessert which is a cut up caramelised pancake with raisins and applesauce). We've tried it in several other German cities but this was by far the best!

The service was excellent. Despite not having a reservation, we were seated (on a busy night) quite quickly. The atmosphere is great, in the basement of the Rathaus. We don't have plans to go back to Augsburg, but if we are ever back in Bavaria we would definitely consider it just to eat here again.

This is a must stop, must eat, must experience restaurant during any visit to Augsburg. The
architecture is breath taking and the modernization is impeccable. I enjoyed the ambiance and atmosphere in this large, but small feeling space I couldn't not stop looking around and feeling the experince. The servers were friendly, the service up to meal delivery was good, but service towards the end of the meal was very slow (expected in the European culture, but this was really slow). LOVED THIS PLACE. They have what I will call family style seating in the middle of the restaurant where there are very long wooden tables and benches, this is surrounded by smaller tables along the outside walls of the restaurant as well.

The ambiance is what makes this place cool. It is underground, dimly lit and good music playing. It's a bit noisy because of the echo in the room. Our waitress was kind and helpful with the menu. However, she forgot our appetizer. We also had to wait a very long time for the bill, after asking multiple waitresses.

I love that this place is in the cellar of the old city hall building (complete with vaulted ceilings). Good, authentic, and not too expensive food/beer in a fun atmosphere. I'd definitely go back with friends...

In the bowels of the old city hall, there is the Ratskeller restaurant. Typical German cuisine, but very tasty and very good quality. Service was impeccable and fast, even though we were there on a Satruday night. Prices are very good, 8-10 EUR for a normal meal, 12EUR for pricier fare, 15EUR for a steak. I recomment to everyone but don't forget to book!
