My partner and I were in Munich for a long weekend, and as part of our usual my friend who lives in the city reserved a table at a restaurant we had not tried. We entered the restaurant via a door in the street where there was a lift, necessary as my friend's elderly father was in a wheelchair. As... More

A wide variety of food to choose from and the service staff are eager to explain each dish in detail for a tourist to understand the local cuisine. Service staff go to great length to entertain the guests rather than just serving food. Great place to go to in Munich.

This restaurant right in the centre of Munich should be high on your list of places to eat when in Munich. The atmosphere at anytime is brilliant. The waiting staff go quickly about their work without ever rushing their customers. Service is swift and very efficient. There is a lovely buzz around the place and is highly recommended.

My wife rarely traveled with me to Munich and she had never dined in the Ratskeller, which is one of my favorite restaurants. In November 2016 we spent a week in Munich, and during that time we visited the Ratskeller, located in the Neues Rathaus, on three occasions, once for lunch and twice for dinner. She now knows why I... More

Easy to find in the centre of Munich, but remember which way you came in - easy to get lost. Great atmosphere, good beer and traditional Bavarian fare! ;-)

Great place for an authentic Bavarian feel. The restaurant is huge ( 1100 seats ) and there is also a small pub, the Royal Dolores. This is all in the cellars right on Marienplatz. The cellars are split into about 15 rooms with great architecture and painted ceilings. Good food and good service. Highly recomended.

Right next door to the clock tower, it is easy to find. Good German food at a reasonable price. Love the interior, had great atmosphere. Would definitely come back the next time I am around Marienplatz

Very big scale eatery. The food was good but not fantastic. Service was good. Serves traditional German food so be prepared for meat, red cabbage and sprouts!

My husband ordered a seared pork with potatoes and I had a salmon with cheese spaetzle. My salmon was still raw in the middle, I had to send it back. The spaetzle could have used... More

Dear Brazatraveler, I am afraid that you didn´t come to our place, since we neither offer seared pork with potatoes, nor salmon with cheese spaetzle. Non of these dishes match in our opinion. The parts just do not go with each other in our opinion.... If you ever want to get got food in Munch, please come and see us.... More

Description
Defeinitely worth a visit, particularlyduring the wine festival. Wine is kept in the vaulted cellars. The light is kept out by the great arches. A gargoyle watches over the guests. In the rustic and snug ambiance, you can opt for a choice of axes from the Middle Ages, and a gallery of the Franconian wine kings. The team makes a conscious effort in their red aprons. This place is for the 40+ crowd who party like they are young again. The Baden and Franconian wine choices will not disappoint you.
