This is a cozy restaurant that presents a potato-based menu (as the name clearly states). It reverses the conventional idea that potatoes are the side dish of a main course. Here potatoes (cooked in different ways) are the main course and meat, fish, and other vegs are the "side dish". This approach would be nice if only potatoes were tasty, but I must admit that this wasn't actually the case. The proportions between potatoes and "the sides" are clearly in favour of the first, so be prepared to have a lot of carbohidrates. Prices are within average, as well as the quality. Multi language menus and initial request for "discount tickets" suggest that this restaurant might be a nice tourist trap. Just try it if you like potatoes.

Hard to believe what you can do with the humble potato. The variety on the menu is amazing. Food was plentiful, very tasty and good value. The service was excellent and very helpful. Would definately return.

Potatos and more potatos! Huge selection which at times becomes too much but if you like a more traditional central european dish you'll most likely find something to like!

The food is quite oily and salty - but it should be! All in all a definite recommendation.
