Once again I was looking for traditional German food and I found what I was looking for. Excellent service, nice location and the food was as good as I hoped it would be.

Very good experience. Tasty food, friendly service, even though a touristy place - one doesn't feel like it. Recommended - I will definitely return there when back in Leipzig.

All german towns seem to have a "Ratskeller", Leipzig is no exeption. It is a huge celler restaurante but still cosy. Staff is friendly and efficient. Food is very good and portions large. The beer is brewed on location.More
