We recently stumbled into the Ratskeller while looking for lunch. The daily custom lunch menu offered a wide variety. I personally had the lamb in herb sauce. Everyone in our business group was delighted with their meals.

It was lovely to have the opportunity to dine beneath the Rathaus, as the building alone is impressive. Fortunately, the food and the service matched the setting as we had a really pleasant meal here. There was a good selection on the menu and the food was lovely, with excellent presentation. Only slight negative was the temperature, as it did... More

You probably ought to book especially on a weekend although there are plenty of tables inside. Food is quite high level and very good but service was average. The waiter and waitresses had to squeeze between our table... More

This restaurant Ratskeller is near the City Hall in a rustic atmosphere, varied menus, friendly and rapid service; I had mushrooms, chanterelle, in sauce with a salad, very good.

There actually are two restaurants operated in the Ratskeller in Aachen: a more modern one and the historic Postwagen. We have eaten at least 5 times in the Postwagen, each time with increased pleasure. In fact, this summer we took 70 friends to the Postwagen, all of whom had a delightful time. It was a pleasure to communicate with the... More

We had a great dinner with very friendly service with 20 people from our UK business. All impressed by good food and great views from the terraces to the cathedral. They would come back for private travels. We'll be back again. Thanks!

Was being taken here for a business dinner and was a bit concerned as the reviews are not so good. We were eating early and sat outside overlooking the square. A very pretty view. The service was friendly and helpful, The food was good; had a most enjoyable evening.
