Had dinner early evening at the Ratskeller since it is right on the plaza. Nice restaurant in the basement with good decor and friendly staff. Two of us had different German dishes and both were just OK. For the price and quality I think I'd...More

We made dinner reservations prior to arriving in Munich. The bar showed an advertisement for a drink so we asked for it. We experienced a language barrier with the server so she brought an English speaker over to assist with the drink selection. When we...More

It was a great place to watch a soccer match, make sure that you reserve a table in either the bar section, or the dining section has a spot with TV as well

My wife an I had an outstanding evening at the Ratskeller, centrally located in the lively Marienplatz. We were a bit reluctant to make a reservation only because of our presumption that, because of its location,it would be too touristy. We couldn't have been more...More

Hi, Is the menu in English as well as German as we speak little to no German. We will be trying to learn as we go on our trip to Munich! Thank you.

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!
