We were hungry after having arrived late in Wittenberg, and were desperate for a nice place to eat al fresco. We had hoped for some traditional German cuisine since it was our first evening in Germany. Since it was so hot that day (and A/C is not available in Restaurants) we needed to find outdoor dining. We happened upon Zum... More

Tried to eat here, staying in Wittenberg, and was initially directed to a (small) two seat table as a single diner by the waitress. A minute or two later qnother waiter came up to me and then asked me to move. Having just been directed there, and asked quite rudely (although there was a bit of language barrier). Not at... More

Had the Soured meats conserves and Bacon and Onion, Potato Salad. Copies Portions of Traditional Food, Washed Down with a few Pints Before Hitting The Brauhaus...Left Full, and satisfied by the Home Style Food. Service was Very Good and Friendly!! Pricing is also friendly, to your wallet...your money goes a long way here.

Good service. But all the choices were very heavy. We ate inside - outside was full. It was hot. Nice decor.

A good place to enjoy a good German meal--and potato salad is a necessary part of that German dish. Good menu.

If you visit Lutherstadt Wittenberg you will walk along the Markt place and the famous church. Just 20 meters from the corner of the Marktplatz is Kartoffelhaus - german quisine restaurant. Very good quality authetic german food for very reasonable prices. Enjoy!

This popular restaurant offers very reasonably priced good quality meals, close to the central attractions of Wittenberg. The salad starters are very large and the baked potatoes are well cooked with a large choice of fillings. Beware the gourmet salad though if you don't like your lettuce covered in sweet sauce. We found the food very good quality, excellent value... More

Without question, the very best restaurant I have found in both Germany or in all of Europe is the Zum Schwarzen Baer Kartoffelhaus in Wittenberg, Germany. In all my years of travel, I have not found... More
