Fantastic original features with this building from the out side and not disappointed once you step through the doors. The staff were very friendly and service was superb. It made our return with friends great.

Having visited this town on numerous occasions and just walked past, a "collective family " ,actually my sister, decision was made to try here rather than just allow both my brother and law and me to enjoy the Christmas market food and drink, and we were all not disappointed. Fantastic food, drink and service. I have noticed complaints regarding the... More

Business dinner in a charming town with interesting history. Rattenfangerhaus provide a historical atmosphere with candle lighting, post & beam accents to highlight one of the many charming dinning rooms. Great food, perfectly seasoned, exactly as ordered. A must see and eat location in Hamelin.

Limited menu choices - no lighter options. Portion sizes were huge but everything was deep fried or swimming in dressing. Not the best restaurant experience. If you have limited German possibly not the best place to eat - inital enquires re a table where met with a rather abrupt response.

This evening we were at the Rattenfangerhaus in Hameln, Germany. We had the specialité of the house "Rats Tails", what else in Hameln. This dish has to be ordered prior to your visit as it is preparered at your table and takes approximately 25 minutes. It is based on very thinly cut pork filet but, believe me, it is delicious....

Out with English friends, we chose a restaurant offering good German cuisine. Everyone chose a different dish and we were very satisfied with the tasty food and friendly service. Everything was worth its price, too.

A must see inside and out! The service was warm and hospitable. Authentic menu. So good, in fact, that we went back a second time. Laura our server gave us excellent service. Good wine selection, amazing apple pancake dessert. You must try the 'rattenkiller' krauterlikor, after dinner liquer. The Rattenfangerhaus was one of the highlights of our stay in Hameln.

I was so excited to eat here. It is my first trip to Germany, and my husband and family were traveling the Fairytale Road. Hameln is famous for the story of the Pied Piper, so rat themes are popular. We picked this restaurant because it advertised their specialty dish as 'Rattails Flambe' (they don't really serve rat tails, maybe to... More
