Its a must, if you interested in local food

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.

I found this place by accident and this was a great accident. The surroundings are a theme outside pub affair with false roofs and gutters and loads of theme items in the pub. Food is good hearty German Fayre and good beer to come with it. Not yet sampled the sweet menu but that is next

Generous portions of traditional Central European food. We liked the friendly staff, the delicious dishes, and the atmosphere of the restaurant. They have great meat dishes, but if you are a vegetarian, I'm sure, you'll find something suitable to eat.

We had dinner in this very funnily decorated Kartoffelhaus. The very interior is already worth a visit. Service was very good. And the food was good. We had the Thüringer Bratwurst, a specialty of the region. It also has a very nice terrace.

This restaurant offers a great locally based menu in really attractive surroundings. There are plenty of choices for meat eaters, fish fans and vegetarians. The choice of wine and beer is great and the prices seemed very competitive. Service was fine. Very friendly although if you're out of sight of the bar area, it can be a bit more difficult... More

Fantastic potato-based dishes to suit all tastes. Many dishes are suitable for vegetarians and gluten intolerances. Portions are generous and prices very reasonable. We visited at lunch time but of an evening the atmosphere is apparently fantastic. Seek out this restaurant for a welcome alternative to the run-of-the-mill town centre restaurants.

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

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
