A restaurant to prefer

Nice service and allround menu to choose from. The vegetables were good and fresh (not the ones you get at many restaurants where they are obviously defrosted and heated)

This looked like it would be a good choice. After talking to the waitress, almost every dish is frozen and not homemade. The food was truck stop quality. Bummer, since the idea is good.

This restaurant tries to offer something to everyone and fails miserably. The menu is extensive but our meals (Jäger Schnitzel and Medallions Provencial) were horrid (although the French fries were okay). The Schnitzel was covered in what seemed like Campbells mushroom soup and my wife's meal was terribly salty. My 'salad' was drowning in dressing so that it was utterly... More

I had the veggie burger. It was delicious. Sheep cheese and potatos and yummy. Recommended. And the beer is great as well.

We had made a reservation on a friday night and got a decent table on the ground floor. The three of us ordered two variations of Schnitzel with fried potatoes, a vegetarian burger which came with some sort of potatoe "steak" instead of meat (german Kartoffelpuffer), and we had a couple of beers during that evening.One of us asked for...

Fast service, good ambiance and nice food, large portions at a good price. Lots of potatoes in the menu (as the name indicates) but lots of other things too. I recommend the "Auflauf Capri". The only negative aspects are the fact that is very popular, so quite full (reservations are recommended) and the vegetables tend to be a bit raw.

Nice place with Biergarten and a funny arrangement of differently sized rooms to sit in on first floor. Little load sometimes. Broad selection of delicious food, also nice veggie dishes. Try out the brunch offer on Saturdays, all you can eat of yummy breakfast dishes for less than 10€

For the last day in Gottingen we went to this place. Called in English "The house of the potato". The service was excellent, the food was great, the drinks very good ( don't like beer with banana), the atmosphere was super nice and the price was good. But the food took to long to be served. Any way we were... More

Thoroughly enjoyed a simple but lovely meal. The waiting staff were very efficient and helpful to non-German speaking customers.

Located right in town, a great place, naturally popular for its potatoes. Americans like me like it, everybody speaks perfect English, and they offer menus in English. Priced right, food and beer is awesome, a must do whie in town...
