Love potatoes? Have to go there!

Had the 'Labskaus', which was way too finely 'blended' for me - but tasted great! Lots of wonderful sounding things on the menu, so will definitely be going back to try out other potato specialties next time I'm in Hamburg.

During a weekend visit in Hamburg we were looking for a place to have a casual dinner after sight seeing. I looked up the place ahead of time online and made a reservation in advance. Reservation was quickly made online and I got a confirmation email right away. Making a reservation was the best decision since the place was packed... More

To enter you step down into a cellar into a dark room, but further in there are also two lighter and more spacious rooms whit a nice view over the canal. As hinted in the name of the restaurant there's a potato theme on the menu. Nice service and very good food and wine. One person in te company ordered... More

Rather special - main menu - potatoes (kartoffeln) - to go with 'meat' and other 'beilagen'. Cousy restaurant in the celler - try it out tipical German in stile.

The restaurant has an interesting concept of having all meal with potatoes. As a big potato fan, I had to go there and I definitely wasn't disappointed. Very big selection of meals, and really tasty food. Something for everyone - even not big potato fans. I would like to go back there!

It was a really hot day and we needed some food and a cool place. We sat inside next to the window. Service wasn't the fastest and the food didn't come super quick. My potato was good with herb butter, but the schnitzel was really good. Some of the best I've had. My rating reflects the food, the service was... More

A group of us went here for dinner and it was fantastic. We were able to sit in the back by the river and the views were great. We were seated promptly and the staff was very friendly the entire visit. The beer was good as well as the wine. The food came out pipping hot and very timely. I... More

We went to this Restaurant after an recommendation of our friend, who was here before. We came here in a bigger Group of 10 People during the "Hamburg Hafenfest 2015". Lucky we made a Reservation well ahead, since this Restaurant was rather good visited during that Weekend. However, it turned out that is was not worth at all to have... More

We found this restaurant by accident on our last trip to Hamburg and what a smashing little restaurant . The exterior is very welcoming ,a giant spud waving at you ,lovely the way it look's from the outside. Inside is warm and inviting and as you would expect from an establishment called the potato celler,meals are very potato orientated. We... More
