We couldn’t resist a restaurant that specializes in potatoes! The best thing, other than tasty food, and great service, was the vegan menu. We had a memorable lunch, and would love to pop in again sometime.

This place is all about potatoes. Backed, mashed, fried, Rösti style and so on. Nice laid back atmosphere and friendly service. Recommend if you like potatoes, but even when not the menu offers alternatives.

Had to wait for donkeys ages, children were served separately (apparently house policy) and got average food boarding on tasteless. Whopping 100 Euros at the till (sans tips) left us with a sour taste to chew for the rest of the evening.More

Dear Sebastian, I am very sorry indeed that we could not meet your expectations. It is in fact a kind of policy of our house to serve the children´s meal quickly and before the parents´ meal. Most of our guests love this policy , because...More

You can find a variety of potato dishes - soups, starters, main courses - but there are options for meat lovers too, and even pasta. A lot of their dishes have rosemary - beware, in case you don't like it (like me). The place is...More

I mean it's called the potato house so I hope they make great potatoes! But really my gratis potatoes with garlic sauce on the side was delicious! I had to stop myself from eating it all in a couple of minutes!
