Food is good value and tasty! The personnel is very friendly and make you feel at ease. It’s clean and cozy. Would definitely visit again! There’s much to choose from. The only small criticism would be the seasoning. They could use some more salt and...spices in their dishes.More

The food was ok compared to the prize - a bit on the dry side. But the service was terrible regarding the waiters.

When you come across a new venue and they tell you they provide Vegan options, you would expect a chef to consider what a Vegan is, a person who absolutely will not consume nor utilise animals or animal products; when it comes to dining, you...would also expect a chef to be aware that said Vegan is looking for a dining "experience". So when they say yes to the question, do they provide Vegan options, the dining experience provided for Vegans is expected. Well, that's not the case here. I found all of one substantial vegan option which was potatoes with Mediterranean vegetables. And err, well, err, that was it! Pathetic. However that said, the dish was absolutely delicious and the service was very friendly. But come on, allow for some education here... A dining experience should be at least, minimum, 2 starter options, 2 main course and 2 deserts, all Vegan if you say you provide Vegan options. So stop mucking about and furthermore, when you say you do but only provide all of one substantial option, you are in fact insulting your guest, who is paying good money as these prices were not the cheapest. When you go to restaurant and realise there's more Vegan options at McDonald's and Burger King, you realise the management and chef have, well, failed to locate anything in the way of insight and vision. Altwernigeroder Kartoffelhaus is a nice and cosy venue I have to give it that and as I said the service was friendly. However, even that said, the second time I went there we had a waiter, where as the language barrier both German & English was such, that we couldn't seem to ask him anything, asking twice for cutlery is a bit of a joke in an eatery establishment. Nice place, but if you say you provide for a certain diet, then do so, don't take the mick, it's far from funny when you're the one sat there and unlike everyone else, through no fault of one's own, is having less than a third of the dining experience than everyone else. It alienates the customer and it's frankly unfair!More

Food okay but nothing extraordinary. We had to wait over an hour for the food. Nice waiters. The potato snaps was very good though!

All about the potato is what it translates as and that is just it is. Great hearty meals with potatoes at the centre of all of them. English translation is available and the staff are pleasant, helpful and efficient. If you have the town visitors...book from your hotel there is a voucher that gets you a free "Potato Schnapps". Try it, well worth while, but do not drive home!More

This is one of the best German restaurants I have ever visited. Especially their soup Soljanka is amazing, but all we ate there was well prepared and delicious. We also appreciated very friendly and communicative staff. They made our evening in Wernigerode unforgettable.

Good food, lovely staff. We ate here four times on our recent trip to Wernigerode and enjoyed every meal. The wine is very good - and they will get to know your preference if you eat here more than once! Highly recommended!

So the food was ok, but don’t go if you want an enjoyable sit-down German culinary experience. It is rapid-fire and all a bit ‘convenience’, and the meals themselves pretty average. A bit disappointed.

The have a menu full of typical options and the restaurant is comfortable and relaxed. You can enjoy a variety of dishes as well as great beer and wines. Nice place located in the city center and within walking distance from many hotels and attractions.
