Good value, and great atmosphere

This was the second time I have visited the Kartoffelhaus, both times on buisness, and on both occasions, the place was absolutely rammed! In fact I tried to eat here the night before, and even on a Wednesday night there were no tables free for over an hour. The food is nearly authentic German... read more

Situated on the way to the train station, and close to Hotel Stadt Hanover, this eatery has enormous helpings of local cuisine. Salads are especially good.

We ordered from the game menu and were happy with the dishes we got. Price and quality match up here, I'd go again next time I'm in town.

I was here this past summer with friends. One person in our group couldn't eat gluten, and they had plenty of options here! I had a schnitzel and it was excellent.

Nice service and allround menu to choose from. The vegetables were good and fresh (not the ones you get at many restaurants where they are obviously defrosted and heated)

This looked like it would be a good choice. After talking to the waitress, almost every dish is frozen and not homemade. The food was truck stop quality. Bummer, since the idea is good.

This restaurant tries to offer something to everyone and fails miserably. The menu is extensive but our meals (Jäger Schnitzel and Medallions Provencial) were horrid (although the French fries were okay). The Schnitzel was covered in what seemed like Campbells mushroom soup and my wife's meal was terribly salty. My 'salad' was drowning in dressing so that it was utterly... More

I had the veggie burger. It was delicious. Sheep cheese and potatos and yummy. Recommended. And the beer is great as well.

We had made a reservation on a friday night and got a decent table on the ground floor. The three of us ordered two variations of Schnitzel with fried potatoes, a vegetarian burger which came with some sort of potatoe "steak" instead of meat (german Kartoffelpuffer), and we had a couple of beers during that evening.One of us asked for...

Fast service, good ambiance and nice food, large portions at a good price. Lots of potatoes in the menu (as the name indicates) but lots of other things too. I recommend the "Auflauf Capri". The only negative aspects are the fact that is very popular, so quite full (reservations are recommended) and the vegetables tend to be a bit raw.
