Good service. But all the choices were very heavy. We ate inside - outside was full. It was hot. Nice decor.

A good place to enjoy a good German meal--and potato salad is a necessary part of that German dish. Good menu.

If you visit Lutherstadt Wittenberg you will walk along the Markt place and the famous church. Just 20 meters from the corner of the Marktplatz is Kartoffelhaus - german quisine restaurant. Very good quality authetic german food for very reasonable prices. Enjoy!

This popular restaurant offers very reasonably priced good quality meals, close to the central attractions of Wittenberg. The salad starters are very large and the baked potatoes are well cooked with a large choice of fillings. Beware the gourmet salad though if you don't like your lettuce covered in sweet sauce. We found the food very good quality, excellent value... More

I lead a tour to seven countries Europe every year. I am always in search of great food for myself and the tour participants. Without question, the very best restaurant I have found in both Germany or in all of Europe is the Zum Schwarzen Baer Kartoffelhaus in Wittenberg, Germany. In all my years of travel, I have not found... More

We're normally adventurous when on holiday. We went here on our first night because it was attached to our hotel (it wasn't clear whether it was actually part of the hotel, but it didn't seem to be). For the following night, despite a lot of effort, we couldn't find anywhere that looked/sounded as good as this, so we went again.... More

We enjoyed the Schwarzen Baer food very much : from appetizers to desserts (schnapps included !) every plate is made by potatoes. In other words, here they serve a tipical and very good Saxon food with a correct relationship between quality and price. We would return any time we 'll visit Wittenberg.

This is a smaller restaurant with very good food. Their prices are less than most places in town. They are close to the market place which makes it very handy as well.

Ate here one night while in Wittenburg and would recommend it while there. This didnt feel like the typical tourist restaurant, but rather like a little rustic local place with real good food. The menu serves what seemed like 150 things made from or featuring in some way, potatoes. At our table we tried a couple hot skillet potato dishes... More
