In a bustling town of Potsdam, this restaurant serves very good fish dinners. Housed in an old building that was destroyed in 1945 and completely remodeled. A very good choice for dinner in Potsdam.

I don't rate many fives. This meal deserved it. The service was flawless. The house salad was fresh, tasty, and had a wonderful dressing which I had on their recommendation. The salmon soup was the incredible...better than the best lobster bisque I've ever tasted. The broiled plaice was very good. The salmon entree even better. Chocolate mouse excellent...red berry gruetz... More

This fish restaurant in the middle of Potsdam offers a classical seafood menu for decent prices. The quality is not stellar but the experience remains very pleasant and the service was both smiling and efficient. A nice opportunity of a change if you’re tired of the multiple pizzas and würst places that abound in the area.

Interesting place, and good for the full German experience. As the name indicates, halibut is the prime subject of the cook. I had it and was not disappointed.

My plate of plaice was disappointing as the fish is quite bland. The potatoes were greasy. The shrimp soup was weak. My wife had the salmon in lobster sauce which was much better than my dish.

This was a good, fairly simple meal at a restaurant specializing in fish and seafood. Two of us started with the small Bouillabaise, packed with tender morsels of fish and shellfish that were cooked just right. I enjoyed my delicate local eel in a dill sauce, accompanied with potatoes and a cucumber salad. Another person in our party was less... More

We had walked by this place earlier in the day on our way to Sans Souci. On our way back, soaked by an unexpected rain shower, we ducked in here and received a friendly welcome. The menu has a number of dishes with locally-caught fish, as well as fish and seafood from the Atlantic, North Sea and Baltic. The wine... More

We were directed there when other places were closed. My friend had a small Bouillabasse and a salad, which was excellent. I had a fillet of pike (or perch) which was also very nice. We then shared a delicious Rodde Gruette, a popular desert of red berries and vanilla sauce with some ice cream. The service was friendly and efficient.... More

Located in the old town, in parallel to the main street. Great decor and very good service, ranging from free appetizers from the chef. Fish dishes are delicious, the cost is not high. Accept Visa cards. Recommend.
