It was a great experience, it was suggested for local people and it was a success. The service is excellence. Follow the recommendation of the waiters

Enjoyed the potato-based (obviously) cuisine. Pleasant atmosphere and very friendly service, even if it took a while to get an order or request taken. (Perhaps they were under-staffed.) Top marks for not arguing about supplying tap water, often a bone of contention in German and other western European restaurants. The glass was delivered to the table without a problem.

Do not eat at this place, if I you are looking for a healthy meal. Everything is potato based - hence the name. The portions are big and everything seems to have been smothered in butter or cream! I had the potato burger where the buns have been replaced with potato pancakes. It was splendid. The Biergarten is quiet and... More

This place has the finest collection of dishes and they create magic with potato! It has nice antique and rustic feeling about the interiors and I am sure shall visit the place again!

Great place to experince the German palate. Wonderful service and most of their staff were helpful enough to translate the menu to English!

Recommended to me by a local which is always a good sign. Food great - not stodgy and with good flavours. Staff friendly. Funny decor of small tree with gold sprinted potatoes hanging from it which raised a laugh. Would eat there again as reasonable price.

Went here for lunch as dinner was packed. Service was good. Had the pork with this amazing white wine mushroom sauce. Also had the potato pancakes. Definitely felt like a "German" restaurant so had a fun experience. They do have an English menu but ask for recommendations among the menu that's not translated.

we found this restaurant sitting on the bus, and as my husbands favourite food is potato we decided to give it a try the day after, on his birthday. we arrived around nine and got half a table the other half was already taken by others. the place is very small, nicely decorated, especially for christmas, with potato-shaped ornaments :)...

we kept walking past this on our way from our hotel to the town and called in one day just out of interest. It is a real little gem. Very helpful staff and the food was good. They do have an English translation sheet but it doesn't cover all the menu so take your dictionary! Would definitely go back.

The food and service were both excellent. The menu was long, and with an English cheat sheet. I went with the mixed grill, which could probably have fed two people. The waiter serving was very helpful, and spoke good English. Nice interior decoration as well.
