If you're a lover of the spud, this place is for you. After reading about the cosiness/small space inside the restauarant we opted to eat outside on the street. Despite other reviews the staff didn't see all that rude (although our server went a bit quiet when it was clear another group was waiting for our table) and the 80s... More

It's not a 1 or 0 just because the food was good and tasty. Staff though... Horrible. So unkind, rude, grateful, CONDESCENDING and taking smack on you behind your back as if you don't understand German (we do). These guys need to remember good food isn't it. It's the people. Uber and unter waitress just shouldn't argue with a customer... More

I just chose to eat here as a lover of potatoes and the fact it's location was really central. As a veggie I was impressed with the range of options on the menu and I ended up going for the rösti which was really excellent. One strange thing about the pricing is that my rösti was only €6.66 however my... More

Kartoffeln Keller This restaurant is located just a short way from the Hamburg Dungeon and model world as you head towards the Rathaus. You can eat inside or out but the Keller oozes charm and Germutlichkiet as befits a German establishment. There is an upstairs element too as you proceed towards the rear of the building. English is spoken and... More

This restaurant serves a lot of traditional german dishes and mainly meals based on potatoes. Prices are, for Hamburg, surprisingly cheap and the location very nice for a rather romantic meal. The staff was very friendly, english is no problem. Thank you very much...enjoyed my stay!

Before going here - you should know that it's called the "potato basement", so firstly, it's quite a potato laden menu, and secondly, the entrance is down the stairs - in the basement. I actually quite liked this place. We were here on a Monday and other places were closed. I had the curried dumplings - they were great. The... More

We visited this restaurant having been to Germany for the Christmas markets previously and thoroughly enjoying kartoffelpouffer (potato pancakes) - we couldn't find these anywhere else when we visited in July. While they weren't amazing the staff were accommodating and friendly and the atmosphere of the restaurant was actually quite romantic and very welcoming! Would recommend a visit based on... More

This is an affordable place in the most famous district of Hamburg, where you can hardly find a restaurant with decent prices that also serves dishes not containing fish. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The setting and decorations are really interesting and the candle-lit tables are also romantic. We went there twice in 2 days and would... More
