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

We went to the Kartoffelkeller to celebrate a family occasion, and although the food was enjoyable, we would not go there again for the following reasons: (i) unfriendly and unhelpful staff; (ii) the downstairs room may be "cozy" for some, but for families with young children it is too tight and unsuitable (pram had to stay outside), (iii) staff told...

I will give this place a very solid "Good" rating. We came in for lunch, place is a candle lit cellar which makes for cozy atmosphere. The service was bery friendly and fast. Food was tasty and so was the beer, providing some options I have not noticed in other local restaurants so far.

The food is really great. But i find that the dish i took several times in November 2015 (potato pancakes with smoked salmon) decreased the smoked salmon quality. I told it to the waiter and he said he would inform the boss. Hopefully things will improve. The place is unique, the service is very good.

Thank Amalia P
