In a bustling town of Potsdam, this restaurant serves very good fish dinners. Housed in an old building that was destroyed in 1945 and completely remodeled. A very good choice for dinner in Potsdam.

My plate of plaice was disappointing as the fish is quite bland. The potatoes were greasy. The shrimp soup was weak. My wife had the salmon in lobster sauce which was much better than my dish.
