Where to eat Central European food in Potsdam: The Best Restaurants and Bars

February 19, 2020 Venice Greaves

Reviews on Central European food in Potsdam, Brandenburg, Germany. Potsdam was the residence of the Prussian kings and German Kaisers until 1918. It is the site of the parks and palaces of Sanssouci, the largest World Heritage Site in Germany. The city is now the capital of the German federal state of Brandenburg and a home to three public colleges and a major film production studio.

Dreimaderlhaus

Reviewed By Chelseagirl724

Given the overwhelmingly great reviews we decided to stop in for a quick lunch before Sansouci Palace. Unfortunately, the manager/waiter shooed out for not having a reservation. There is certainly a better way to interact with potential patrons (even if we were foreigners)...not a polite bunch. Our stop at Dreimaderlhaus' proved an upsetting start our to our day, I suggest you go elsewhere!

A little off the beaten track, especially in winter when you can’t fully enjoy the views of the lake. However the great beers and food made up for it. All beers are brewed onsite and I recommend the sausage and sauerkraut.

Well Established Fish Restaurant - Proer Fish, Good Service, Reasonable Prices

Excellent fish restaurant; everything is fresh, well prepared and beautifully presented. Local specialities are freshwater fish like rainbow trout, but there are also saltwater varieties available, and a handful of non-fish items for those non-pescatarians at your table ;)

Zum Fliegenden Hollander

Gut bürgerliche Küche, verfeinert mit internationalen Feinheiten aus Frankreich und Italien sowie Fischgerichten

Reviewed By semanticvision

The Flying Dutchman was one of the restaurants recommended by our hotel staff. After being shut out of a couple other restaurants without reservation, we were warmly received here with plenty of seatings. There is pub section, and dinning section with bar foods to full fledged menu options. We were not particularly hungry and knowing the portion is big (we peeled at neighbor’s plate), we settled with one soup and two entrees. White asparagus was in season, it should not be missed. The cooking is homy and hearty, warm our stomach on a chilly spring evening. The portion is belly busting and it was a good thing it takes 15 minutes walk to get back to our hotel.

There’s not a ton of infrastructure at Sans Souci unless you go into Potsdam proper. This is a good option, just across from the windmill at the palace grounds entrance. Simple North German fare, served at reasonable prices with efficiency. Nothing special, but lots of options on the menu. Nice wine list.

Located next to Dutchtown in Potsdam in a very classic European neighborhood. We really enjoyed our Flammkuchen: a pizza like lunch (extremely thin crust with creme freche base). I enjoyed mine with Greek salad topping; my wife enjoyed her ham and cheese topping.

Friendly and quick service, our drinks order was taken almost straight away and we were also brought complimentary breads and dip with our drinks. We tried the pork escalope with mushrooms, bacon onions and fried potatoes (Schweineschnitzel Brasserie) - proper comfort food and also the chicken crepe (Kräutercrêpe).

Popped in here during a business trip to Potsdam for an early(ish) breakfast. The food was delicious- I had a delightful quiche that came with a tasty side salad. They also had lots of different types of eggs, sausages, cheese breakfasts, etc. on the menu to choose from. The owner was very friendly and was very kind to translate the menu for me to English. Looking forward to coming back!

Had it not been for our guide (see Explore Berlin Tours), we would have never found this lovely neighborhood gem. But we are so glad we did. The menu was classic German, lunch delicious, Pilsner cold and satisfying and the setting gorgeous and scenic. It was truly one of the highlights of our visit to Potsdam. Friendly service and lots of locals make you glad for the visit.Dear brandarchitect, The "Kades" say thanks. We loved to hospitality our guests. Thanks' that we be the highlight of your visit in Potsdam. Friendly service and a regional kitchen most importantly. We lives this.Please come back in our restaurantYour Mario Kade
