Very nice looking place with an interesting menu. The food is very good, but very heavy also. The staff is very nice and service very fast. Very positive experience.

Eisenach has a good claim to the title of the navel of Germany. The Wartburg castle is the setting for Tannhäuser, JS Bach was born here and Luther translated the Bible just down the road from that. The town is a bit tatty outside the historic bits, and perhaps inspired by this we found ourselves in the Kartoffelhaus, a half-timbered... More

We had a super dinner here - waiter brought us an English menu alongside the German language one - huge range of food with potato at the forefront. Half size meals were huge and the decor was funky and outside area felt cool and the inside gemutlich!

Please note the opening times on Trip advisor are wrong it closes in afternoon and reopens at 5 pm Huge menu selection of local and Eastern... More

We ate here to get out from the cold. We were very pleased with the food atmosphere and service. We ate the Goulash and I had pork knuckles both with potatoes obviously. Both delicious. The beer was good and we finished with a shot of potato schnapps. On the house. A great evening and well worth a visit.

I found this place by accident and this was a great accident. The surroundings are a theme outside pub affair with false roofs and gutters and loads of theme items in the pub. Food is good hearty German Fayre and good beer to come with it. Not yet sampled the sweet menu but that is next

Generous portions of traditional Central European food. We liked the friendly staff, the delicious dishes, and the atmosphere of the restaurant. They have great meat dishes, but if you are a vegetarian, I'm sure, you'll find something suitable to eat.

We had dinner in this very funnily decorated Kartoffelhaus. The very interior is already worth a visit. Service was very good. And the food was good. We had the Thüringer Bratwurst, a specialty of the region. It also has a very nice terrace.

This restaurant offers a great locally based menu in really attractive surroundings. There are plenty of choices for meat eaters, fish fans and vegetarians. The choice of wine and beer is great and the prices seemed very competitive. Service was fine. Very friendly although if you're out of sight of the bar area, it can be a bit more difficult... More

Fantastic potato-based dishes to suit all tastes. Many dishes are suitable for vegetarians and gluten intolerances. Portions are generous and prices very reasonable. We visited at lunch time but of an evening the atmosphere is apparently fantastic. Seek out this restaurant for a welcome alternative to the run-of-the-mill town centre restaurants.
