I believe this restaurant is also know as Wittenberger Kartoffelhaus.

The potatoes were a plenty. We arrived early to find most of the tables empty but reserved. We almost turned away but the helpful staff found us seats at the bar. Before long the place was packed and we were enjoying four splendid dishes.

We just arrived and wanted to check out some local cuisine. This restaurant had very high marks and we wanted something with consistency. Perfect!

Once we walked in the door, we were greeted by a German speaking waitress. Through limited conversation, we were told that we needed a reservation however we were escorted near a corner of the bar. After sitting there for about 10 minutes, we were greeted by a young man that mentioned that a table had opened up and we would be able to relocate. Very customer-friendly!

Needless to say, our meals consisted of large portions and we left content. We would return again but would like to speak a little more German.

This was one of the few places open when we visited Wittenberg on a national holiday, the Day of German Unity. We waited in line to get into this small, wood lined restaurant. It was decorated in rough wooden paneling, colorful curtains and rough hewn tables. Our waitress did not speak English, but quickly found an English version of the menu for us. The restaurant was packed but most of the patrons seemed to be associated with the girls' choir from neighboring Halle whom we had seen performing I the Schlosskirche earlier. Everything on the menus is centered around potatoes ; starters, soups, grilled items casseroles or simple baked potatoes with various fillings. Everything we tried, soups, schnitzel Hamburg style, potato pancakes plus dessert were all wonderful and inexpensive.

Centrally located on the pedestrian walkway in old town Wittenburg we went here because we had learned it was a local favorite.
Most, but not all of the dishes are potato based and the three dishes that we had were outstanding. They were a nice mixture of potatoes, meat and veggies all put together in a way that complement each other.
The staff was very attentive and the service level excellent.

We were hungry after having arrived late in Wittenberg, and were desperate for a nice place to eat al fresco. We had hoped for some traditional German cuisine since it was our first evening in Germany. Since it was so hot that day (and A/C is not available in Restaurants) we needed to find outdoor dining.
We happened upon Zum Schwarzen Baer, and sat down and waited for a waitress to assist us. Since we had difficulties understanding the menu we ordered a mixed platter of meats, a few veggies and 4 varieties of potatoes. Everything was prepared well and the beer was great. No English spoken here, but totally worth a try ... ask for the English menu and bring a German-English dictionary.
