Visited here for a business dinner. Had the potato soup with sausage and the pork cuts with potatoes, green beans, and cheese. To top it off I had deep fried apples with vanilla sauce and vanilla ice cream. Awesome artwork of potatoes inside. Very enjoyable.

When visiting this restaurant in the former townhall friendly staff will bring you the menu list as a tablemat and offer you a liqueur as appetizer. Take your time to make a difficult decision what to order; there is a big choice, but keep in mind: meals are big (several meals are also available in smaller portions with a reduction... More

This restaurant is almost always full so reservations are recommended. Due to the crowds and the layout it is noisy inside, but in a cozy way. The food is good and the portions are huge, but compared to other restaurants of the same cuisine it is a bit expensive.

With the main ingredient being potatoes, I had assumed the menu might be a little boring (even though I love potatoes!). However, I was very pleasantly surprised - the menu is huge, and all the food is very, very good. It is also, all freshly cooked. Delicious - would definitely go again!

This is the second time I've eaten at this restaurant and enjoyed it just as much the second as the first time. I enjoyed the pork schnitzel so much the first time I had to have it again. The bucket pails used as downlighting adds to the atmosphere brilliantly. Well worth a visit go there you will not be disappointed

We happened upon an Oktoberfest-type street celebration in late September 2014. After enjoying a beverage or two, we were lucky to find a just-emptied table here for dinner. I attribute the slow service to the large crowds, but it is a nice place to sit outside and watch people, or perhaps strike up a conversation. Our food was a good... More
