It is great what you can do with potatoes. I went with my friend who is gluten intolerant and she loved it as she could eat everything from the menu. We had the spinach and potato gratin which was amazing and also cold roast beef with potato fritters. Service was very friendly and it is good value for money. We... More

Good beer, good food, good price, good service. Ask the hotel to book a table it's likely to be full since its well visited. 8 dishes where saved at the same time. Chef must have been doing some good planning to be able to do that. Enjoyed this dinner.

The Kartoffelkeller is at the historical Deichstrasse. The crew are dressed in a potatoe bag and the dishes were related. Food was great and prices really reasonable. Although the restaurant was full I could get a place which was reservated for one hour later. Very helpfull

Four of us thoroughly enjoyed the food and the ambience. Good staff, good value and enough of the German experience, yet different and fun. Romantic setting for a couple. Very much the candlelight experience. A great cosy winter venue. Happy customers.

It was a nice experience. Old style keller, old furniture, but everything looks very nice. Meals are good and big. Tasty. But it's difficult to see what do you eat exactly - almost no light. one candle per table is not enought.

The place is located in a keller (basement), very traditional with low lights. The personnel wears potato bags and is happy to guide you through the menu. One might think that the choice is limited, yet it is totally wrong. The choice of different dishes is very high, potato is the queen. But would definitely reccomend it...Price is fair, no... More

Great food made from potatoes, even things you wouldn't imagine you could use potatoes for, i.e. sweet deserts. Reasonably priced and good Quality.

Great potatoes -- loved the fried spuds with bacon and onion! Also enjoyed the pork medallions with herb butter. Husband had great steak -- very nicely cooked. The rote grutze berries and cinnamon potato cakes (very light!) rounded off an excellent meal. With 2 glasses of wine, 2 beers and a coffee, bill came to 70 euros with tip. English-speaking... More

The central theme of this restaurant is potatoes, but that doesn't mean there's only potatoes to eat! They have a decent range of dishes with potatoes in them, of varying styles, from meat with potatoes to stews, or the excellent herring and potatoe sharing platter for two. They have quite a large seating area outside, great in the summer, or... More
