We had lunch here on a bike tour of Potsdam. While I usually find restaurants on tours to be sub-par, Alter Stadwachter was quite good. Delicious schnitzel and very good pork chops. Others in our group liked their entrees too. Huge portions, even for the "small" size. And quite reasonable. We ate in the garden on a very nice early... More

Stopped here for a lunch while on a biking tour. This restaurant is just across the yard from Brandenburg Gate and it's quite near the city centre. Had the mix grill plate which was not bad. The weather was good on the day so decided to sit outside the garden and enjoy a good meal with good company. Plenty of... More

We had breakfast here after the 10km race in Potsdam. They served good breakfasts and I got the Austrian meatloaf breakfast with the eggs and potato.

Service was very strange - waiter behaved like prince, hardly looking our side or answering questions. Food was cooked beautifully on visual, but my steak was hard and impossible to chew, very disappointing Location is good

Here we found the ultimate German restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully themed German venue as well as the traditional German cuisine. This restaurant is in an historic guardhouse in the old city wall. Our host was superb, friendly, hospitable and entertaining. The food was very good and tasty with a great choice in wines. Everybody here was friendly and... More

We came here for dinner, and were really satisfied with everything. We wanted something typically German after all that sushi, curry , pasta and other foreign cuisine we have eaten here. The waiter was helpful though he didn't speak much of English. Service was good and pretty fast and the restaurant was full. Food was very tasty and there was... More

We tried this restaurant after a friends' recommendation. And...no disappointment. If you're looking for solid German style food - try this one. Great value. Great service. Great quality. Not over the top but not too casual either. Reservation during weekends suggested.

We recently had lunch at the Alter stadtwächter. we had to wait more than 20 minutes before someone had dime to take our orders. The goose took 45 minutes to prepare - which shows this is real food, and not from the micro wave. The steak, ordered medium rare, came all grey. But the food was good and the atmosphere... More
