The atmosphere in Ratskeller is very bavarian, cozy and happy! The drinks, different kind of beers, as well as the food are very good. The service is quick, and we were a group of 8, but got our food all on time.

Had a wonderful evening with family and friends. Place is close to U bahn and always reserve your table. Delicious food and also wallet friendly if you appreciate fine dining.

Went here for lunch, and was not disappointed. Lots of traditional German options and also plenty of pasta and other options as well. Our family had several different things and they were all very good. Would definitely go again.

Dear Simple_blokeTeesside! Serving pretzels at your table is common practice in Bavaria. It costs you 1,50€ a piece and it´s shown in the menu. Good luck with your next restaurant choice. Best wishes from the Ratskeller of Munich, Martin Wieser

Perfect place to taste the German cuisine and have a good beer! We recommend to taste a Sauerbraten Special, hoping that you will not be disappointed. For a dinner during the summertime the inner yard of the palace is preferable, not the cellar.

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!
