    If you're looking for some great Bavarian food, Ratskeller has some great dishes to offer. The service is fantastic, and the architecture inside is quite a visual feast. The restaurant is underground in reclaimed portions of the old town hall, beautifully decorated and renovated with different themed rooms. Definitely try the schnitzel!

    A nice place with a cozy ambiance. I came here seeing all the good reviews on Google and the recommendation of my guide, and I was happy with my finding. I was happy to see that they had an English menu as well, making it easy for travellers. I was also especially delighted that there were lots of vegetarian options here! :-)

    Enter from the street onto this grand, fantastic courtyard, surrounded by this amazing architecture, with tables and chairs and people eating, dining or having coffee and sweats. They also have an indoor restaurant also in the basement, such is painted and adorned with some amazing murals, just absolutely stunning. It us a bit pricey, but hey, having something in these surroundings, just amazing. We had coffee and sweets, the creme brulee was so so good and the apple kuchen was amazing. Relaxing atmosphere and service was casual but the ladies were ultra professional, dressed in their traditional attire.

    ALL of the food is AMAZING. Everything is a little pricy, but it's worth it, and the interior atmosphere is so beautiful and cozy at the same time. Really loved the booth seats. We liked this so much better than the nearby restaurants that we came here twice in one day! The service is rather slow, and a little curt, but considering just how bloody busy they were, the service we did get was good. A man who wasn't even waiting on our particular table happened to see me struggling with a salt shaker and stopped what he was doing to unclog it. So these waiters do care - they're just busy. :) The dessert selection is also quite comprehensive - and delicious! We didn't even bother leaving to get dessert elsewhere. Just don't go here if you're in a hurry, or if you do, ask for the check very early on. They're busy! :)

    We've been here a few times, and most of the food we've had has been great. The service can be a bit slow but this is largely because it is a huge restaurant that is incredibly popular in a tourist area. (Note: You should make a reservation if you want to go on a weekend or during an event!) The prices are a bit higher due to the touristy location and popularity, but it's a great place to take people when they're visiting for some German food.

    Good food. Good service. Good ambience. Waitress did not speak much English so some German will make things easier. Definitely recommend.

    I came here for early dinner. The ambience was fantastic. The pork knuckle I had was okay but I really enjoyed the beer recommended by the first friendly waiter who served me. Everything went down the hill by the time the food arrived. The second waitress didn’t seem to belong with customer service industry. She wasn’t even smiling at all. I waited for more than 10 minutes to get my bill. When I foot the bill, I said she could keep the change of €0.50. She mentioned how we could tip by filling in the bottom part of the receipt. I had no intention to tip based on her service. Next, the worst thing she said was ‘no tip?!’ in a condescending manner and gave me change unwillingly. I felt intimidated by her hostility. I went for brunch at a different restaurant on the same day and happily tipped 10% because of their excellent customer service. This waitress should really improve herself and understand why people do or do not tip. Furthermore, gratuity is not even a practice to begin with at this restaurant based on the owner’s replies to other reviews.

    Great food and great beer. Our server is nice but all other people seem cold. This place asks you to consider paying gratuity. Being from the US, I don’t have a huge problem with it as long as it produces good service. However I guess someone will.

    A large and well-known restaurant serving up traditional Bavarian dishes right on the Marienplatz. As with most well-known, and well-traveled restaurants in the heart of tourist areas, it does local cuisine very well in a nice, inviting atmosphere. It is probably pricier than other traditional places you can find off the beaten path, but for those willing to spend extra for the full experience, it’s fine. The food was good. So was the beer. The atmosphere is clean and very Bavarian. The waitstaff was German (meaning they may come off as rude or uninterested to American tourists), professional and decently attentive. It’s a fine place, but having been here once, I don’t know that I would come back. I’d probably opt for one of the other traditional Bavarian places in town a bit more off the beaten path and a little less forced when it comes to showing off the culture.

    Very vibrant, good service, but didn't like the food.
