“Good traditional food, great space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2014

I had a quick lunch here of green herring in cream sauce with pickled cucumber and potatoes, which was rather nice. It's an impressive, traditional space, very beautiful with lots of barrels and has a long wine-list.

“Traditional atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

The interior definitely emerges you in the traditional atmosphere. And the food was sooo typically German :)
Service had its flaws but was overall fine.

“Intimate, lovely, romantic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

After a day of sightseeing in the rain, the Ratskeller was a warm and comfortable place for a meal. Large oak barrels dominate the walls. There are cozy alcoves for couples. Delicious selection of wines and cheeses.

“Taste of Bremen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We went twice during our short stay, once for beers outside on a sunny day, and for beers and a late lunch on a rainy day. I would have said this is a tourist trap except it is also clearly well used by locals.

As you might expect, the beer is fantastic. The lobskaus was lovely, but the cheese and meat platter just average.

You should pop by when in Bremen, even just for a drink to see this lovely historic cellar.

Ps all along one side are lovely private booths which were always reserved - one I noticed was sprinkled with rose petals. Take note if you are celebrating a special occasion!

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We'd already eaten dinner but wanted to visit here on our last night and we arrived late when no-one else was there and asked if we could have just some drinks and they were more than happy to accommodate us.

It is a really beautiful building, it was great to have it to ourselves and the staff never made us feel rushed at all. We'd love to try again when there are more people as well.
