I chose this restaurant reading the great reviews of it on Trip Advisor, but unfortunately I did not have the same experience. The atmosphere was great - it was in the cellar of the Town Hall, the old brick walls, old tables and good music definitely made for an awesome atmosphere.
The food, however, was a hit and miss. Our party of 5 ordered a schnitzel, the Ratskeller special (Ratskellerpfanne), a baked potato with turkey, and a sausage dish.
The schnitzel and sausage dishes were tasty. The schnitzel was tasty and juicy. The drinks and desserts were tasty.
However the Ratskeller special and the turkey that came with the baked potato was inedible! The Ratskeller special's description in the menu was 'medallions of tender pork and beef'. The pork and beef were very dry and tough and hard. Absolutely not tender. In fact the pork was exactly like how I imagine thick cardboard would taste and feel. I would not even serve such pork to my family at home - I do not understand how a restaurant can serve this to their customers. The turkey pieces that came with the baked potato were rock hard, and I am not even exaggerating.
So, if you go, do NOT order anything that has meat in it, except for schnitzel & sausages.
