We ended up at Kartoffelkiste by chance. We walked through Europa Centre and this place attracted our attention. Judging by number of German-speaking families that visited it during lunch hour on Christmas Day it is quite popular with locals. We ordered Goulash for me and Calf liver traditional style for my wife. I have never tried liver prepared to perfection,... More

Great, just great. Delicious, with absolutely enormous size of portions, and at all that being really inexpensive - this place has taken the lead in X-mas 2016 season in Berlin in my own chart. Nice waiters and convenient accommodation are just additional reasons to get back here again.

Couldn't get a seat on the Sunday evening so went back on the Monday evening and easily got a table. We all enjoyed our meals which were traditionally German and very hearty portions and good value for money. Our waitress was very good and was very tolerant with our lack of German and patient with mistakes that were due to... More

A good range of local and European dishes. Very generous portions. Doesn't feel crowded even when busy.

I ate here with my parents on a visit to Berlin. Loved it. Service was excellent (very friendly) and the food was copious and of good quality. I had 'venison goulash' - really tastey. Great selection of beers, as well as salads, German and Berlin specialities ... and a great relaxed atomsphere. I was busy, but never felt noisy or... More

No doubt this is going to be one of the best german food in Berlin. I had my first meal here and the last meal in Berlin here. The service was good and the atmosphere was amazing. The food was so so delicious, especially the pork knuckles (Schweinshaxe) not the boiled one get the fry/grilled one. IT IS A MUST!!!... More

We have been here a few times and if you want simple German cooking come here. I always enjoy the Berlin style liver and the plates are huge. Good beer and pork knuckle is also on the menu

Visited this place again for their Boiled Pork Knuckle and was disappointed because it wasn't as good as I remembered. The pork knuckle was a bit dry.

We are very sorry, that you were not satisified with your meal. The Pork knuckle is a staple dish and it should not be dry. I hope you give us another chance. More

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
