We liked the atmosphere and the waiter who humoured us despite our bad German. There is an English menu, though some bits don't translate well. I had the pork knuckle and sauerkraut which was great. My friend had cold herrings - the menu description was a long way from reality so he didn't like it and hence didn't eat it.... More

Good food and pretty reasonable prices. The place was very busy when we were there, so the service was not the fastest.

Nice, cozy and typical German. Service was good and quick. Our daughter quickly got pens and paper and we quickly had a beer. Food was fine, nothing special, but definitely not bad either.

Our fifth holiday to Wernigerode and the Kartoffelhaus never fails to disappoint. I suppose each year, my wife and I look forward to the rare roast beef salad which provides a "beef" fix from the pork, chicken, and spargel traditional menus in Germany. We love the substantial portions of the pink beef which is so much better than I've ever... More

This establishment is very well worth a visit for a traditional experience in attractive surroundings and with caring staff. The menu is extensive but meals are prepared to order in the house kitchen. The size, quality and value of meals is outstanding!

Some of the food was very good, other dishes seemed prepared long in advance and I suspect frozen. If not, then that Rouladen was very sad. The interior décor is rather elaborately rustic and I found eating on the front outside café more appealing.

The Altwernigeröder Kartoffelhaus offers good and honest german food. Compared to some of the other restaurants or may be a bit more expensive, but even then quite affordable. A thumbs up from me.

Price, quantity, and quality of the food is on the mark. A pretty rustic atmosphere with a good waitstaff. If you are looking for a reasonable, hearty meal, it is worth a try. The mixed grill plate and pretty much any of the schnitzel plates are decent.

This place was always mobbed. It had loads of atmosphere. If you like big portions go here. Food was OK but was very good value. Wine list was awful - drink beer is my advice. Still glad we went though. Handy for the centre
