First night in Munich, and literally stumbled across this. Food was fresh and authentic, staff were fantastic, and it was spelled out in the menu that eating in the courtyard would be more expensive than eating in the restaurant. So no surprises. Make it a must do if visiting Munich.

A great place for a great German meal and of course great beer! The sauerbraten was fabulous and the cost was very reasonable.

This poor server had no idea how to efficiently do her job. She had a single row of seven tables, of which half were occupied. She would visit each table separately and thing go all the way back to the server station. Result is the poor woman running back and forth while providing terrible service. I tried for my entire...

I visit Munich every year, and on every time I am in the Bavarian capital I make it a point to eat at the Ratskeller, my favorite Munich restaurant. The mixed salad, the goulash soup, and the Wiener schnitzel are outstanding. On my most recent trip of seven days, I dined at the Ratskeller on three occasions, twice for lunch... More

We had several dishes because we liked to try typical Bavarian fare. So we started with a Soup with pancake stripes, had seasonal white Asparagus in Béarnaise sauce which is a typical German speciality at this time of year, then Beef Roulades and my wife had a Pork Leg. As a dessert we had something called "Bavarian Crème", very tasty... More

Delicious food in a nice, quiet, unique setting with awesome service. It was a spur of the moment stop right after watching the glockenspiel when we wanted to rest a bit away from the crowds, and it that ended up being a very delicious, special meal.

The Munich Ratskeller is one of the more famous restaurants in Germany. It has the heavy panels and heavy tables one associates with this type place. The atmosphere is great, the food is merely average and a bit overpriced. Good for the ambience but so-so for the eats.

After a long day out on a tour and our last night in Munich, we were looking for somewhere special to eat. Situated right in the centre (under the new town hall) in Marienplatz, we had passed many times. So we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed! The place is huge! So there are many...

Dear KaraWS, I learned from what you wrote that you ended up getting into bavarian culture really deeply... There´s probably no place more authentic here in Munich than our Weinwirtschaft. We have local frequents coming here daily. I will certainly forward your text to Liliana. It feels really good to read something like that. Thank you very much for being... 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!
