Although well located, with a rich menu and well prepared specialties, I found it a bit too noisy and impersonal. To my opinion, it is more appropriate for large groups visiting the city than for gourmets.

This restaurant is located close to the City Centre, just to the West on Goethe-Allee where it crosses the Muehlengraben stream. There is an extensive menu, specialising in the potato dishes after which the restaurant is named but also offering plenty of other dishes too.

I`ve been there for a group meeting-dinner, so proper place for large groups (with reservations of course!). My pepper steak was really really delicious and other orders around were also seen tasty. Waitstaff could be more polite for a this kind of a good restaurant.

A very appealing menu, with a vibrant atmosphere in the room. Families, couples, business groups all dining there. It appeared full when I arrived, but I was seen to a table within a minute. No complaints at all.

This is a wonderful place with a real calm and smooth amosphere. The food here is great. It was a really good experience for a first timer. It is definitely worth a try. we ate chicken and roast beef both of which tasted really good. the service was really fast and the people working were really friendly.

Unfortunately the Kartoffelhaus was closed on my most recent visit but I have eaten there on several occasions in the past. Popular with students and academics. Good quality standard German food and beer at a reasonable price. Beer garden available if the weather is right.

My husband and i ate here last night and as vegans were totally disappointed. Firstly it took 40 minutes to get food and it wasn't busy. Aside from that we ordered from the vegan menu. I had the oven potato with 3 dips. My husband had the salad with pan fried mushrooms. The salad was actually ok. But my potato... More

Really awful food. Remember that scene in "European Vacation" where the French cooks stuck French flags into frozen TV dinners" Well, that's this place. AVOID IT.
