Lovely dining room and good German food. Portions are large as in most German restaurants. Service was very good with a good wine list. When we arrived at the restaurant there were quite a few tables but within fifteen minutes the restaurant was full. Best to book if you don't want to miss out.

This iconic German building is worthy even of just a peak inside. Stay for some excellent local food. Try the peach laced wine, potato soup, fresh pike-perch, or the pork schnitzel.

Terrific old Gasthaus on the town's pretty old market square with lots of half-timbered buildings. We were lucky enough to get a window seat overlooking the square and enjoyed our excellent 'Rhineland' potato soup, mixed salad, beer and coffee.

Wenn gut Bürgerlich gesucht wird sind Sie hier falsch. Die Speisekarte ist schön überschaubar das Essen ist gut präsentiert und schmeckte hervorragende. Service erste klasse. Am 25.& 26. Dez. Abends Super. If your looking for typical German faire then your in the wrong place. Menu is not too large and the dishes are well presented and excellent flavours. Service first... More

We had a relaxing dinner here during our stay in the area. Service was good. We both had a potato soup to start which was very tasty. We then had steak and a schnitzel for main course both of which were very good. We enjoyed our evening here and would visit again.

After a disspointing experience in another Restaurant in Bernkastle we were delighted to get a table at the Ratskeller. The food was very tasty, the wine delightful and the service excellent.

Decent quality german and local fare at a reasonable price. Right on the main market square, so handy if visiting the Weinachtsmarkt

On our way from a friends house to Trier, we stopped for lunch here, (and a bit of sight seeing), and were treated to some old fashioned service (good but slow), old fashioned ambience (lots of older generation enjoying lunch) an old fashioned elegance, (real starched linen table cloth and napkins, fresh rose on the table and good clean silverware)....

Sat outside on a lovely warm evening and had a relaxed meal. Really enjoyed the meal itself and watching the world pass by added to the experience. Food was very good - pork risotto for me and a mushroom lasagne for my other half. Nice wine and a lovely creme brûlée for desert rounded off the evening. Service was slow... More

Started with a local Riesling and sat out front watching local activity at the square. The potato soup was outstanding. I was not disappointed in the least with the grilled pork dinner - excellent. Great location and great food = happiness!!
