Our hotel recommended this restaurant for lunch. We arrived late but there was a table free. As the title suggests, potatoes are king and I had an excellent gnocchi dish, every bit as good as on our last trip to Italy. Open wine list is good value. We were the only non Germans. The place was filled with families intent... More

The Menu Choice is the largest I have seen in the last month! . Perhaps too many. The Roast Potato was okay. But I had this feeling it was the wrong type of potato. It lucked that special roast taste and tasted more like boiled. It was pretty big and the Turkey stripes were not stripes but medium Ragouts pieces... More

This restaurant has something for everyone, including kids and gluten free! We enjoyed our visit tremendously. Lovely staff who was friendly and attentive. Our youngest had fallen asleep in his bike seat, so we rolled him in and leaned the bike on a post and let him sleep through dinner. Our waited even brought him a blanket! Cannot recommend more...

The food is very good and the prices are also very affordable. The staff was quite helpful and kind but overall the service is rather slow.

Great cooking. Friendly service and staff. Good selection of bears and wines. I loved it. Salads were balanced in quantity to the main dish, and dressing was fresh and tasty.

Great for gluten free dishes, as they are hard to find in Göttingen. They also do a nice brunch, but you should reserve, as it is usually packed. Leckere glutenfreie Gerichte.

The Kartoffelhaus is a typical modern German restaurant which I visited during the asparagus (spargel) season, giving me the opportunity to enjoy white asparagus with holandaise sauce as a first dish with a second dish of a duck breast in excellent gravy with broccoli and a lovely side dish of potatoes baked with cheese. All taken down with an excellent... More

we asked the waitress which dishes were made fresh and she told us basically none of them are with fresh ingredients. it was a bad dinner experience. my friend loves potatoes and thats why we went, but we will simply get our potatoes elsewhere.

This is a quite down-to-earth restaurant located in an old villa nearby the high street of Göttingen (Weender Straße/Prinzenstraße). Specialty of the house are potato pancakes - also combined with burgers (instead of the buns you get 2 potato pancakes), which are really good. Service is absolutely okay. Place can be quite noisy and crowded, but upstairs there´re also some... More
