Delicious!

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... read 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

Inside is warm and inviting and as you would expect from an establishment called the potato celler,meals are very potato orientated. We... More

We literally just unpacked our bags and headed across the street to this little restaurant which looked so inviting. The subdued lighting and dark furniture gave a cosy feel to the place. Only two other tables were occupied and it was 8.30 in the evening so we didn't expect there to be a problem with service. The waiter took our... More

Stumbled on the Kartoffel Keller (Potato Cellar) on a Sunday lunch time after a heavy night out in Hamburgs Reeperbahn/St Pauli area's. It was just what the hamgover doctors would have recommended. Down in the cellar, low ceilings and candlelit, it is a cosy traditional bisto with a potato based (neigh...themed) menu, we opted for Potato & Swiss cheese soup,... More

We ate here at the recommendation of a friend from the area. The night we stumbled in was freezing and rainy. We could not have asked for a better restaurant Ina night like this. The food was hearty and delicious. You step down I into the cafe and it's like stepping back in time. The walls are decorated with shields,... More

Eating out with a family in Germany is never low cost, but the food at Kartoffel Keller is very, very good and very reasonably priced for Germany. And the food is both very German and very delicious. If you're looking for something authentically German, this is the right place to choose. And the ambiance! It is really a neat little... More
