My wife and I loved the Kartoffelhaus so much that we visited twice during three days! The Saxon potato casserole is a highlight of their menu; also, it'll last two meals if you're on a budget. The service here is fast and consistent. Also, they...More

To eat where Luther ate, and outstanding food to boot, it just doesn’t get any better than that. The atmosphere is also incomparable.

We both had the schnitzel and it was very good. Portions enough for 2 people, or take some home. Service is fast, place is always busy with locals and groups.

Very happy we stopped at the Kartoffelhaus. I am amazed how many delicious dishes the lowly, underrated potato can produce. Seating a bit tight, but nice atmosphere inside. Weather permitting, outside seating is even better, as the restaurant is in the heart of a pedestrian...More

If you go here, go early and not at the dinner time 6 pm and after, or you will need a reservation! We decided to go here as the menu was intriguing; Potatoes with different toppings, Local German Foods, and a cozy atmosphere. Seating is...More

I believe this restaurant is also know as Wittenberger Kartoffelhaus. The potatoes were a plenty. We arrived early to find most of the tables empty but reserved. We almost turned away but the helpful staff found us seats at the bar. Before long the place...More
