We had simple pasta and pizza here for lunch. All were very nicely prepared. We loved their non-alcohol drinks. They have all kinds of juices and you can have them mixed with sparkling water called Spitzers. These were not too sweet and thirst quenching. I...More

We dropped in this place after a pleasant Sunday strolling around Potsdam. It was a bright early summer night so we ate outside. Service was a bit slow but food was good. I can recommend the pizzas. The food is simple but quite well executed....More

We were so hungry but a bit sceptical as vegetariens, but very quickly we got a plentiful array of tapasdishes to still the hunger and sone good beer to go with it. Great service and value for money.

Good burgers and generally nice place. Steak was bit fatty. I have used it several times as it is convenient. Staff do seem bored and lethargic.

Nice decor, lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Food was gorgeous, only problem was we didn't quite get what we ordered but that may have been a language issue. Thoroughly enjoyed it

An amazing restaurant in a beautiful location. Stayed in potsdam for two nights and chose this restaurant over the hotels for both evenings. Food and service outstanding and the street musician added to the ambiance. Food good value for big portions and service impeccable.

Cafe Matador has a wonderful location, with a great view of Brandenburg Tor. The food is good, the dishes are large, and the prices are fair. Recommended!

Yes, there is parking on the side streets around the restaurant. Right in front is a big square where the Potsdam gate is. I don't think there are any parking lots, we came on bicycles.

The multi-facetted MATADOR restaurant goes down well with people of all ages. Guests sit and relax by the digital fireplace and stacked firewood. Combined with the wooden chairs, tables and bar, as well as the pleasant earthy colours, the soft lighting and candlelight, these elements create a warm and cosy feel. Sip a cocktail in the bright relaxed surroundings outside. Tuck into a mouth-watering lava-stone grilled steak. The quality of food and service leaves nothing to be desired. You cannot beat the Matador for location either, allowing you to take a leisurely stroll in the nearby Sanssouci Park after your meal.
