If you go here, go early and not at the dinner time 6 pm and after, or you will need a reservation! We decided to go here as the menu was intriguing; Potatoes with different toppings, Local German Foods, and a cozy atmosphere. Seating is a bit tight, but the food and friendly service along with a few cold beers... More

I believe this restaurant is also know as Wittenberger Kartoffelhaus. The potatoes were a plenty. We arrived early to find most of the tables empty but reserved. We almost turned away but the helpful staff found us seats at the bar. Before long the place was packed and we were enjoying four splendid dishes.

We just arrived and wanted to check out some local cuisine. This restaurant had very high marks and we wanted something with consistency. Perfect! Once we walked in the door, we were greeted by a German speaking waitress. Through limited conversation, we were told that we needed a reservation however we were escorted near a corner of the bar. After... More

This was one of the few places open when we visited Wittenberg on a national holiday, the Day of German Unity. We waited in line to get into this small, wood lined restaurant. It was decorated in rough wooden paneling, colorful curtains and rough hewn tables. Our waitress did not speak English, but quickly found an English version of the... More

Centrally located on the pedestrian walkway in old town Wittenburg we went here because we had learned it was a local favorite. Most, but not all of the dishes are potato based and the three dishes that we had were outstanding. They were a nice mixture of potatoes, meat and veggies all put together in a way that complement each... More

We were hungry after having arrived late in Wittenberg, and were desperate for a nice place to eat al fresco. We had hoped for some traditional German cuisine since it was our first evening in Germany. Since it was so hot that day (and A/C is not available in Restaurants) we needed to find outdoor dining. We happened upon Zum... More

Tried to eat here, staying in Wittenberg, and was initially directed to a (small) two seat table as a single diner by the waitress. A minute or two later qnother waiter came up to me and then asked me to move. Having just been directed there, and asked quite rudely (although there was a bit of language barrier). Not at... More

Good service. But all the choices were very heavy. We ate inside - outside was full. It was hot. Nice decor.
