We ordered Kalbsschnitzel Championgs and Bandnudeln mit Gambas for dinner. The noodles was covered with large, fresh and succulent prawns. It was definitely good value for money as compared to the same dish that we had for dinner the night before at a Bistro in Kleve, which cost 0.60€ less but we could hardly find the few small shrimps in...

We drove past the Ratskeller and immediately wanted to visit it, as it reminded us of other Ratskellers and we wanted to have some real German food. It was all we expected, the wonderful vaulted ceilings, nicely done tables, German families in their Sunday best, and a wonderful hostess. We went for the asparagus with schnitzel, not a combination I... More

Been here twice last year as my inlaws live very close. The food is fantastic, the wild boar was unbelievable, great wines and beers. It has a very warm and cosy feel. Will be back soon.

The Ratskeller in Kalkar is a restaurant with a excellent choice of wines and freshly prepared food on the menu. The prices are slightly higher than the average price rate in the area but the quality of the products and the service are worth it. Seasonal and local food is served frequently and it is also worthwhile to test the... More

I visited this restaurant with my parents. Place is very nice with the atmosphere of old times. Service was pretty solid. Maybe better English of the staff could help. Food was simply great! We all got Wiener Schnitzel with salted potatoes. Totally recommended!

We came across this 1400s building in search of some good German food. Instead, we found amazing food, and service to match!
