Klare Empfehlung. Man bekommt immer einen Platz, auch ohne Reservierung und das in München. Kulinarisch hervorragende Qualität. Neben regionalen, bodenständigen Gerichten überzeugt der Ratskeller immer wieder auch durch außergewöhnliche Kreationen und spezielle saisonale Angebote.

Wir waren sehr zufrieden. Zunächst einmal hat es mit der Onlinereservierung geklappt und wir bekamen einen schönen Zweiertisch, um ungestört und wohl hoffentlich auch ungehört unseren Dialog führen zu können. Die Bedienung war sehr freundlich und schnell, hätte allerdings auch zwischendurch öfter nach uns schauen dürfen.
Das Esse (Kalbschnitzel) entsprach voll den Erwartungen, das dazu servierte Kellerbier war 1a! Ambiente und Sauberkeit waren ebenfalls 1a!
Der Ratskeller ist eine Visitenkarte der Stadt, die nicht enttäuscht, weshalb man auch ihn auf jeden Fall auch mit ortfremden Gästen aufsuchen kann, ohne Enttäuschungen zu riskieren.

Lovely meal good atmosphere only one issue they tried to tell us we could only have our table (booked for 7) until 8pm as they needed it for another booking. Insisted this was unacceptable and were eventually moved to another table. Too right.

Restaurant seems to always be busy, so a reservation would be very useful. Food is not cheap, but fair for the price and portion. With tip, one beer, a main course, and a split dessert would be about 20 euros. Lots of tasty options on the menu, so it would be suitable for many.

Der Service war sehr höflich und zuvorkommend. Das Ambiente ist toll, bringt aber auch jede Menge Touristen mit sich (gefühlt an dem Abend).
Das Essen war gut jedoch fande ich das Schnitzel mit 26€ zu überteuert. Auch war es leider etwas ölig noch vom Braten und die Bratkartoffeln hätten auch etwas knuspriger und gewürzter sein können.

Very “tourist” place. Food was good, but nothing spectacular and overpriced for what it was. I had been here once before for work and came back with my wife mostly due to the fact it was underground and beneath the town hall, which I thought was cool. We both agreed it wouldn’t be a ‘repeat’ place to visit, but nice to do one time.

Appetizers showed up after three of the four entrees, the court entree finally came ice cold. The second round of drinks showed well after everyone was finished. The bottle of wine came after that, even though it was ordered with the meals. Visit the pub, have a drink and find someplace else to dine.

fantastic spot for our first meal in Munich! Great fun waiter! We sampled all the german favorites and our waiter suggested the perfect options for our meal. We are a group of foodies with dietary issues and found many options to suit our needs. In addition, I emailed to reserve a table - they were attentive and thoughtful in their advice and help. Lots of fun!
