Food was average and very substantial, the service quite slow as the restaurant was very busy. The staff were pleasant even though they were busy

We have been very disappointed. The staff was friendly but finally they billed too much, the food was not really convincingly and after all we will never come back.

You can't visit Wernigerode without visiting this lovely town hall. It is unique in its miniature look, and makes this small German town really special.

Despite the low attendance at the time of our visit it took quite a while for the orders to arrive. The ambiance is good.

We enjoyed some beautifully cooked sirloin steak and for me a mixed grill out of the top drawer all washed down with some of the local Pils.. the menu is in German with English subtitles - the prices are very reasonable and the place was busy.

Sitting alongside and underneath the very pretty town hall in the marketplace of this beautiful town the Ratskeller is well worth a visit. We first visited in the early evening for a beer of a fine July evening , sitting outside watching the world go by , the tables filled up quickly with locals sitting down early for their evening...

This establishment is situated in the primary town square location and should be especially attractive to visit. However, a lack of ability to speak German is clearly a severe irritation to the surly and abrupt (mature) waiting staff. An attempt to enjoy a beer and then a meal was spoiled by attitude but the food and value was satisfactory, so... More

Typical of German ratskeller restaurants. Bags of atmosphere. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. Wine list appeared poor but then was impressed with the offene wine they gave us. Worth a punt

Very nice place with excellent food and service. Perhaps the best deer medallions I have ever tasted were at this restaurant. After having eaten here more than 10 times over the past 15 years, I do not have a single gripe. Consistent and delicious food everytime.
