Good food, fair price, nice atmosphere

Price, quantity, and quality of the food is on the mark. A pretty rustic atmosphere with a good waitstaff. If you are looking for a reasonable, hearty meal, it is worth a try. The mixed grill plate and pretty much any of the schnitzel plates are decent.

This place was always mobbed. It had loads of atmosphere. If you like big portions go here. Food was OK but was very good value. Wine list was awful - drink beer is my advice. Still glad we went though. Handy for the centre

Despite the name 'Kartoffelhaus', this restaurant serves much more than potato! Although I do like to use my rusty German if I can, a menu us available in English. Our meal was first class and very reasonably priced. Be warned though, the portions are huge, which we discovered after we had both eaten starters. we enjoyed our meal here so... More

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay and enjoyed the food both times. English menu provided and service very good. Large portions of German food and choice of potatoes. As it was December there was goose on the menu as a special and it was lovely. The waiter also had no problem when my husband wanted chips instead of dumplings.... More

I saw an advert for this place and took a fancy to eating there. The whole restaurant is big but is split into small areas with the furniture totally mismatched to itself, giving the place a great ambience. The food is very "German" in style and very similar to what I was given in my childhood by my Polish mother... More

This is a very nice option to eat in Wernigerode. German food, very good beer. Many options to eat or drink for a fair price. Its a place to return.

In the town centre of Wernigerode, a UNESCO heritage town in the Harz Mountains is the Altwernigeroder Kartoffelhaus., While it might seem like it’s going to be a venue that serves up 97 varieties of potato dishes, it is instead a well appointed restaurant that serves upscale, well-prepared regional food. Here the local beer, a pale lager, is served along... More

My husband and I had knuckles of pork with baked potatoes. The portions were very huge! If you order a starter you probably share the main course. To sum it up, you'll get big portions of tasty German Food in a wonderful rustic Setting. Just awesome!
