I was introduced to this restaurant by my sister, Sabrina. This was a firm favourite with her, when she started working in Luxembourg. On my several work contracts there, I have returned time and again to this place. The dishes are all made with potatoes and they are simply delicious. Prices are also very reasonable This place is perfect on... More

Nothing spacial. Food is served big portions but is rather greasy, heavy. I've found two vegan options, tried one. Didn't finish the meal because I got full in the middle (that is a big plus) and it was not exactly in my taste. Nice staff, average coffee. Menu is a weak point- translated to many languages but without prices (that... More

It is a really touristic place serving "typical" and basic german food, lots of which, as you can guess from the name, is based on potatoes (such as gratin, baked potatoes, etc...). It is not "great" gastronomy but the quality is good and most of the dishes are quite massive. You definitely get good value. It's a great place to... More

This restaurant is comfortably located in the city centre, near the Xmas market and the cathedral. We went there on a Saturday night when it was extremely busy, yet after about 15 minutes waiting for a table the service was really fast. The food was good, a heavy winter meal kind of dishes but that's what we wanted on a... More

Potatoes made any way you can think of. I just had potatoe soup which was wonderfully delicious! I had a bite of my husbands meal- potatoes,cheese,spinach and chicken - Amazing! We also had pototoe bread with a garlic dip which was very good. The atmosphere is very comfortable. The staff and service were amazing. The price is reasonable.

Got my snitzel. Been here a couple of times as a back up place if the preferred place is full. The restaurant is part of the German potato restaurant chain that you find in Germany. Friendly staff. Good food if a meat eater. Enjoyed the duo snitzel. My proffered places is getting the thumbs down whilst this one is your... More

A nice sized restaurant near Porta Nigra. The food is simple German cuisine at a good price. We both had schnitzel (mushroom and paprika), a soft drink and a beer. The food was lovely and we would return. The service was impeccable and or waiter was brilliant. Two mains, two drinks and a tip came to €30. We would return... More

Tired out of both transatlantic and domestic connection flights, I asked my hotel's reception just for a "good typical German fare". I have to thank the receptionist. I showed up at Kartoffel around 10:30pm of a freezing evening. I was very politely told that kitchen would close soon, but I was gently seated notwithstanding. I was left all my time... More

Good choice of wines and beers, and a very full menu. Very quick efficient service and the food was hot and very good, ranging from steaks to a vegan meal on our table and all served up under 10 minutes.

Thank Dorian J
