I highly recommend this restaurant for your trip to Munich. The restaurant itself is very large and beautiful. We both ordered the wiener schnitzel and it was amazing. You can either have one or two pieces. It is a little on the expensive side (63...More

Very cost historic restaurant. Very quick attentive service. Large menu of standard German fair. Great for beer drinks, not so great for wine drinkers.

Large restaurant and large menu with lots of options. We ordered a Caesar salad and the sausage with potato pancake dish. Cool atmosphere with live music and underground seating right in the center square. Would definitely recommend.

Description
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!
