Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 October 2017

We had a group of 18 people for lunch and had a wonderful time. The food was delicious, the service friendly, and the atmosphere perfect for a group event. Mr Nawroth, the owner, came to our table and provided the history of the building and invited us to visit the original room in the back to see the beautiful mosaic on the wall. It was a perfect setting for our group and we will most definitely return to this restaurant when in Magdeburg.

Monday night was Schnitzel night so we both had that and it was good and very good value. This wasn't sophisticated cooking but we had a pleasant dinner and excellent service.

American tourists sometimes overlook one of the best restaurants in any town in Germany because they can't imagine a city hall with good food. In the US, at best a city hall will have a cafeteria for employees. In Germany, however, city governments pride themselves in having excellent restaurants, usually in the basement (cellar = Keller) of the city hall (Rat-haus).
This is very true in Magdeburg. The 300-year old Ratskeller has been beautifully restored and decorated. It is a huge restaurant capable of handling large crowds, but during off hours various sections are tastefully closed off.
My wife and I have eaten there several times over the past 14 years and the food and service have been consistently excellent. Our most recent visit was September 14, 2012, and we had a light meal of a salad (which was huge) and a smoked herring with an apple cream sauce and fantastically good bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes). For desert we shared a very large apple strudel with both whipped cream and ice cream. Good beer and wine are available, of course, as this is Germany.
The service was very friendly, and the wait staff spoke excellent English, which is not always the case in the former DDR part of Germany. We took advantage of a special late afternoon menu where many of the dishes are "half price plus one Euro." The location, on the market square, is within easy walking distance of the main train station.
