Missed our bus stop. Tripadvisored places near me now and this place came up. Worryingly not busy on arrival but absolutely superb! Please please dine here!

I called this restaurant because I wanted to invite a group of customers for dinner. I spoke to a very friendly Lars, who assured me that there would be a table waiting for us, and that he accepted American Express as payment, which I wanted.

When we arrived, we were seated in a very cozy separé with a view of the street ourside. It was a warm evening, and a light breeze drafted through the open door. The food was absolutely great. The wine also. The best, however was Lars and his friendly and attentive service.

Try the cask aged Grappa. Sublime end to a great dinner. Ironically, the payment with AMEX didn't work in the end, but who cares. It was worth it!

Thanks Lars, we will be back.

I was the only one in the restaurant on a grey, winter evening, but my meal was just great - carrot/ginger soup, lamb with quinoa, and an excellent Duckstein beer. The food was elegant and delicious, and I couldn't understand why more had not found this place.

We wanted to have lunch in Potsdam before visiting the Sans Soucii....we happened upon Bender's as we walked toward the Neuen Markt just past the film museum. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant, suitable for business or romance! My husband had the bouillabaisse for a starter and we both had the delicious roast chicken. Several different types of warm breads were served and my favorite was the fruit bread. We had wine with lunch...he had two glasses of champagne and I had the fine Reisling. The total with drinks was about 80 euros. NOTE: The restaurant does NOT accept most credit cards, so we were fortunate to have had cash. I think they take euro card but am not certain about that. There are ATM machines nearby.
