  • Enough options for vegetarians. Also people who can not eat gluten, dairy products or vegans can select a dish here. I ordered the vegetarian Gnocchi, which was excellent. The portions could have been...  more »
  • In addition to eating regional specialties this restaurant does a great impression to the guests. Perfect for business dinner.

  • 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
