We stopped by for beer and some sausages for the novelty value of going to a munich cliché. The service was fine, limited English, but menus with pictures. Beer was fine and the food very good

Our first night in Munich, on a Saturday night, after the Christmas markets, we were suddenly hungry for good German food on a cold night. As students in Europe, we would often go to the local Ratskeller restaurant for good, plentiful local food when we were new in town. Trying our luck again, we walked through a courtyard of the...

Located conveniently by the Marienplatz Rathaus Glockenspiel~ the waiter patiently recommend me a delicious meal. The food was up to par and price is acceptable.

We felt obligated to try out the Ratskellar in Munich and we were not disappointed. This was possibly one of the top two or three most beautiful restaurants we were in. It looks like it's been taken straight out of a movie. All the architecture and decoration are beautiful. We stopped in here for a lunch and it was great.... More

This place could, should, and probably is, excellent. The food was a delight, visiting at Easter gave an option of a simply superb Wiener Schnitzel with amazing white asparagus and buttered potatoes, and it was the nicest thing I've eaten in some considerable time. The Apple fritters which followed were excellent too. However, I'd almost got to the point where... More

This is mostly a tourist restaurant on Marienplatz but it is very nice inside. You had to go down stairs to get to it. We wanted to go somewhere away from there but were tired and hungry. The menu was varied with lots of different choices. We got sausages, potato pancakes, and sour kraut with draft beer. The waiter was... More

Dear Mike L., as stated many times before, we are not really what you called a tourist restaurant. Only about 30% of our dear guests come from all over the world. We are very grateful for every single one of them, as you can imagine. Otherwise we wouldn´t be able to fill all those 100 seats of our restaurant and... More

This famous and historical restaurant is located by the old city hall by Marienplatz. The atmosphere and decoration is typical bayerisch. And the cuisine is wonderful.

Dear Ryn26, you words made me laugh... we´ve been asking ourselves the exact same question for the last 41 years, since we took over this place. Whenever I ask people, even locals, why they have not been to this place before, they all give the same answer: "I was afraid this place is for tourists only!" As you can imagine,... More

We went here on our first night in Munich (jet lag and all!) The staff was really friendly. The place is huge, but we sat in the pub which is a little more low key than the regular restaurant.

Dear kristenlparker, currently we are offering 24 different kinds of beer. Choosing the sausage platter was the right choice because of the fact that it is our most demanded dish. So many guests can´t be wrong... Thank you for visiting the Ratskeller of Munich! Best wishes, Martin Wieser More

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!
