We found the "Altwerngeroeder Kartoffelhaus" in Wernigerrode on a trip around the "Harz" region that stretches over 3 German states. The town itself is charming with many old timber frame building. The restaurant can be highly recommended if you love all food associated with potatoes....More

The food was probably the worst we had in our 5 days in Harz. The four of us had a meal and all four were terribly cooked. Shame really, because the waiters were very friendly and helpful and unlike most of the places in Wernigerode,...More

We tried this place on our first evening in Wernigerode. Central location, staff very friendly and helpful, extensive menu, nice German traditional decor. Turned out that Spargel (white asparagus) was just in season - which is one of our family favourites. So this ticked all...More

This establishment is very well worth a visit for a traditional experience in attractive surroundings and with caring staff. The menu is extensive but meals are prepared to order in the house kitchen. The size, quality and value of meals is outstanding!

Some of the food was very good, other dishes seemed prepared long in advance and I suspect frozen. If not, then that Rouladen was very sad. The interior décor is rather elaborately rustic and I found eating on the front outside café more appealing.
