This place is all about potatoes. Backed, mashed, fried, Rösti style and so on. Nice laid back atmosphere and friendly service. Recommend if you like potatoes, but even when not the menu offers alternatives.

I felt like a traditional dinner and since it was close to where I was staying, I thought I would try. Atmosphere: There is a very homey feeling. A bare stone wall, wooden furniture and a tiled floor, which made it feel a little like...More

I mean it's called the potato house so I hope they make great potatoes! But really my gratis potatoes with garlic sauce on the side was delicious! I had to stop myself from eating it all in a couple of minutes!

This place is always popular/busy so I was looking forward to eating there. We tried once before just turning up one evening, but no tables free for an hour. So we booked a few weeks in advance for a birthday meal for 4 people. When...More

The food is clean and healthy. Locally sourced and bio friendly. While most dishes do focus on potatoes they are all prepared with great attention to detail and are absolutely stunning. This is a must visit if in Freiburg.

The Kartoffelhaus celebrates the fabulous tuber in various ways and with great dedication. Our menu offers home-made dishes like mother cooked them, but also interprets potato dishes in a fresh and daringly new way with fresh vegetables and herbs, several sorts of cheese, delicious local fish and meat of high quality. In addition you can find vintage types of potatoes and vegetables used in yummy dishes on our menu. We also offer a vegan menu and separate menus of gluten and lactose-free dishes.
