Think of an antique shop that sells food and you might get the idea. Very Olde Worlde interior. Every horizontal surface not used for eating and every vertical surface is covered with curiosities that you would expect to find at a flea-market. Service and food is good. Everything that can be done with potatoes is done here and combined with... More

This place has all the necessities. Great food, great beer selection, great atmosphere. I had the Pork Szegediner (goulash) with Thuringia Potato dumplings. The dumplings were some of the best I had, and the goulash really hit the spot. (Great meal for an unseasonably cold night). They offered an English menu and were very helpful for a lone tourist. I... More

The price and the offer fit together, It tastes very good and the service was friendly. There is one warning ! If you are going by car, dont park directly in front of the local. There is a loading zone and no parking zone. You will get a ticket very quickly.

Terrific home style cooking. Sausage, sauerkraut, potatoes- ½ liter of beer each for two people, and all for 20 Euros. Could not do better for twice the price.

Visited this restaurant as it was recommended in the Rough Guide . I'm glad we did, as we had an enjoyable evening, but it is, in fact, an independent restaurant, not part of a chain, as they suggest. There is indeed a chain of the same name, but they are not part of it, as we discovered on asking. The... More

I went here for the novelty of a restaurant focused solely on potatoes, and of course I therefore had to eat the most potato-ey things on the main. I was not disappointed - having a potato dumpling main course, a potato ball and ice cream dessert and potatoschnapps, served in a potato, there's not a lot more I could have... More

Busy place not really catering for tourists, but they did find a translated menu. Food substantial, but hot and tasty. As the name implies, potatoes are the thing! Had potato pud and potato schnapps. Both surprisingly good!

Our first impression wasn't so great as the first member of staff (manager?) we encountered was really grumpy and totally lost his patience with us as we aren't fluent in German. The waitress he then sent over was very friendly, helpful, spoke English and then found us some English menus. They do have a very extensive menu, and the food... More

Very cute restaurant with potato dishes of every description. The inside is decorated with lots of fun antiques and curiosities, but we sat in the courtyard on a balmy summer evening.
