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.

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

One of several restaurants my friends and I visited during our long weekend stag do in Hamburg. We found this place to be very good, and would love to visit again if I manage to get back to Hamburg for a less drunken visit! The staff were very friendly, the food was all fantastic, between our group of 9 I... 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

If your on the Atkins diet, you might want to give this one a miss as it is potatoe based fodder throughout. As odd as this may sound, the food is genuinely delicious and the menu is a varied mix of North german dishes. There are some really unusual and very typical plates on offer and we loved the place.... More

Despite having made a reservation, we were not properly allocated a table and were instead asked to share a small table with a couple who were passionately holding hands staring at each other while waiting for their dinner to be served. Not wanting to interrupt, we requested another table, but were asked to wait at least another half an hour.... More
