Nice ordfashioned place. We had today's lunch (turkey) which was very tasty. Such a large place with so many tables should have more waiters than those few working that day, though. We had to wait a little too long to be really content.

Historic surroundings, Beautiful paintings, stained glass, wood board ceiling, even suits of armor, this restaurant has it all. This is a great place to lunch after you've seen City Hall which is connected to it. I don't know how old it is but it's Tudor style interior harkens back to an older Germany. I was drawn in after peaking through... More

We went to this restaurant just when it opened. A table was booked through Opentable. The waiter welcomed us nicely and presentedbthe menu, and we chose a scampirsalad and a nice red wine. Excellent! If you travel to Kiel, enjoy your lunch at Ratskeller!

My husband and I somehow managed to avoid eating here the entire time we lived in Kiel. It wasn't until a return visit that we stopped by for dinner and realized what we had been missing out on. We never ate there because we thought it was just a tourist restaurant. We were so wrong. All of our food was... More

During a short visit to Kiel our friends, who live and work in the town, booked the four of us into a typical German restaurant. The building is on the edge of the Christmas market now on in Kiel, and proved to be very old inside where original features had been preserved. The dining area is split into several individual...

Very good location in the very city-center (right next to Rathaus). Nice food, big portions and good prices. Especially if you come during the week and get the lunch card - always a different choice and always a really good value for money. There are a lot of space and many tables and it is always pretty quiet there. I... More

We had a family gathering and our meal and the service was delightful. We were offered a large table that offered much privacy. One member of our party was a young child. He was offered toys to play with and our server slowed him to brandish the sword that accompanied the suit of armor in the entryway. The beer and... More

We ordered a hunters schnitzel, which are like a wienerschnitzel, but pork instead of beef. It was very good and tasty. The only thing is, that they normally serve this dish with pommes frites, which in my view is a nogo. But on request they changed it to brat kartoffel. All in all a very good experience.
