  • Not eating due to. The wine list because (the former is not quite OK, the latter impressive). No: the guided tour of the cellars because! Experienced 15 years ago in a family ceremony (full of prejudices; Keyword: "Tourist"), since then a must for me, whether alone, with friends. Push all prejudices aside - and make it! Also, and just as Bremer. You have missed something otherwise. Confidence will be rewarded at the end with a mouthful of Apostle wine. What is it, what it tastes like: find out!

  • Wonderful atmosphere and delicious honey infused goat cheese salad. The wine selection was phenomenal and our waiter's wine reccomendation was fantastic. This is a great place to lay back with a glass...  more »
  • The food was reasonable, advance a soup and some bread. Nothing wrong with that, but the last spoonful of soup was still not on and there came the main course already. We had fish and chips, the sauce was delicious but the Bremer style fish had not so much taste. In addition, there is a pretty thick layer to the fish. The experience is cool, beautiful building and nicely furnished. All in all very good eaten, but the speed at which we were back outside we found very very sorry. We are not again ...

  • Service was good but the foods were not worth that much.
  • Advertised as a wine-cellar, but serves few, average red wines filled in a bad glass next to bad food. Got served a full to the brink and spilling glass of wine. Overpriced with arrogant unfriendly waiters. Not reccomended
  • Wow, what a beautiful space. You don't have to have a reservation for here, you can walk the amazing rathskeller and take a table in back if they are available. I have the roulade and it was great. I've had better flavor, but the beef was cut and cooked to perfection. The food came out before the beer, which was disturbing. The dessert--fruit jelly with vanilla custard--was mind-blowing. There price is right, too. Roulade, dessert, a .5l beer, and a coffee was 27EUR. Service was acceptable, but not great. The waitress was friendly and spoke great English, but she was swamped all by her self and was inattentive because of that. If the service was better, I'd rate 5/5. This is a must see restaurant!
  • We found this place on Tripadvisor and I can confirm it was very good decisions. Staff is super professional and friendly. They all speak fluent English and the food is delicious. I cannot forget to mention that the restaurant itself looks beautiful from the inside.
  • If you travel to Bremen at first, you should come to this place and spend some time here. Waiters great support conversation with you
