Fodor's Review

This annex of the more upscale Ratskeller is worth a stop for the building alone, a half-timber medieval edifice at one corner of the old Rathaus. You'll be impressed by the food as well, which also comes from the kitchen of Ratskeller chef Maurice de Boer. Sitting at one of the low wooden tables, surveying the marketplace through the wavy old glass, you can dine well on solid German fare. If you really want to go local, try Himmel und Erde, mashed potatoes and applesauce topped by panfried slices of blood sausage and onions.

Der Postwagen Review

With prices at 15 Euro and above for lunch, it was a little more expensive than I expected. Food was tasty and a bit different than what you'd find in a traditional German restaurant, but nothing exciting. Next time, I'd choose something else.
