Food was very good, with a fun potato theme. However the service was poor, as the waitresses were unfriendly, robotic and rather snippy ruining what could have been a nice experience. When we went to order dessert we were told the kitchen was closed in no uncertain terms yet we were never warned by the waitress that the kitchen was... More

We decided to go here after reading about how the restaurant specializes in "spud cuisine". We sat outside, with the seating area just outside Rothenburg's walls. Everything about our meal was fine (we both got the Schupfnudeln: potato noodles with sauerkraut and bacon), but nothing really set it apart from other meals we had in Germany. I would say give...

After an absolute brilliant holiday throughout Austria and Germany, with wonderful food, good manners and hospitality by both hotel and restaurant staff we stayed on our way home in Rothenburg for 2 nights. We were quite excited at visiting this restaurant as I had looked at your website, specifically for restaurants in Rothenburg. At first, as it was a lovely... More

The full name of the place is "Gasthof Rödertor mit Rothenburger Kartoffelstube". If you are making the short stroll from the Rothenburg ob der Tauber Bahnhof to the Altstadt (old city), the hotel & restaurant are on your right just before the main gate. Check them out at http://www.roedertor.com/en/restaurant-rothenburg/. We were drawn into the Biergarten by the "Potato Menu" posted... More

The assortment of potato dishes is unique. My dinner was very good and the service was attentive. A good evening.

The food here was very good. It is interesting to see how many different ways potatoes can be prepared.

We did not stay in this hotel, but we did eat in the Kartoffelstube restaurant and had a great experience! The staff was very friendly, helpful and prompt with all services. The majority of the dishes are made in some way with potatoes (kartoffel; thus, the name). We had the shrimp in garlic sauce for an appetizer and it was... More

We ate here as part of our stay here. The evening meal was wonderful. The breakfast is adequate (not as extensive as many other places we've stayed) but without shortcomings.

I love the idea of a restaurant based just on potato dishes! The Schupfnedeln (potato noodles with sauerkraut and bacon was delicious, as was the au gratin casserole we tried (was sort of like a lasagna but with potato slices, ground meat and marinara). I loved the feel of the place - it was very welcoming and like going to... More

Wanting to have dinner outside on a very warm evening, wanting to enjoy a Biergarten experience, and not wanting to spend a small fortune, we found Gasthof Rodertor Restaurant. In a beautiful setting under large canopied trees, we were not disappointed. The Pilsner was delicious. As other reviewers have stated, love of the potato is quite evident in their menu.... More
