The origins of this building date back to 1535 but it was badly damaged in WW2 and later restored. The restaurant is up a few steps and is in a fairly conventionally furnished room with brown woodwork, white walls and ceiling, and grey stone pillars. We had professional service from the waiting staff who were dressed in black and white... More

We have been here on Friday during a short trip in Heilbronn. Tipical German dinner with a fantastic taste. We loved it and service was really excellent. We really enjoyed it. We strongly recommend this lovely restaurant especially for desserts!

The food is consistently great and the service is second to none. It's always a good choice. They have a extensive wine list and the staff are happy to recommend or advise if you're unsure what to choose. If you have any dietary requirements they are very accommodating.

Had a business appointment with dinner and the food was good and the drinks as well. The pricing was very fair. Great place for a business meeting but also to meet up with friends.

The Ratskeller is in the middle of Heilbronn and a great place for dinner great food and service. Prices are mid range and it's a great place to hold a business dinner. They have a few separate rooms you can reserve.

Went her for a business lunch. Food was good, very German. Staff didn't speak English so that was a surprise given how upscale it is, and also I don't know why it's rated number one because it was good but not outstanding. Maybe that says more about the other restaurants in Heilbronn. Anyway, decent prices and friendly atmosphere and so... More

Was there this afternoon. The placet is perfect. The food is very good and there is a lot of variety. Prices are within reason. We paid 66 Euro for 2 entrees, 2 main dishes, 4 beverages (non-alcoholic) and 2 espressos. This really worth its money. Service is very good also.

We all met in Heilbronn 50+ years ago and celebrated a reunion. The Ratskeller was perfect! Great beer (Hefeweizen), local wine (Trollinger-Lemberger) and food (Rostbraten, Wiener Schnitzel of veal, Maultaschen aka "Swabian ravioli") made for a wonderful evening. Even the "Dessertkarte" had some irresistable items. And the prices for this top restaurant in town were not bad: less tha Euor... More
