“poor and not tasty food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

This is a restaurant, where the potato is served as main dish, and all other meat and vegetables as side dish. We ordered oven baked potato with brocoli & chicken and potato dough pizza. Oven baked potato was tasteless, some of the potatoes had even the taste, that they cooked more than once and not freshly baked. The potato dough pizza was not very good either. A thick, tasteless dough, nothing special. I was really dissappointed, after I read such good comments in TA.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

The food was excellent and the service too. Big menu variety and great desserts!
The only downside is that they were closing at 11.30 on Saturday which seemed a little early for us but besides that everything was great!

“All about patato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2012

Everything made of patato. Food is great and plentyful. Service charming. Prices reasonable. However, when fully booked, the restaurant can be a bit noisy.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

This restaurant is well know for meals with potato. You can have a Pizza potato doguh or a steak with a stuffed potato. It's big restaurant (you don't need to make a reservation) it's close to the Shopping mall therefore is the price a little bit higher than in the other Restaurant.
The service can be review. You need to wait about 1 hour for your dish since is always so full.

“Service level needs review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2012

Not our first time we eat at "Tolle Knolle", the German style "potato restaurant". If you like pasta, that's the wrong place :)

The place is near the "Lago" Shopping mall in Konstanz. You can find easy car parks at Lago or just across the road at the "Augustiner Parkhaus". We had a reservation, which I did a week earlier, upon arrival, the table was not ready and we had to wait 5 minutes.

The restaurant is not very large and full of small and mid sized tables, which makes the place rather small/loud and stuffy if you not can't sit outside.

The ordered food came very quick (less then 10 minutes), big positive surprise but makes it clear the food is not fresh made! It's cooked and keep warm for easy serving.

Eating is great and if you like the German style (salty and large portions) - that's heaven. Am a potato man and I do enjoy good potato meals. Also desert is nice (Apfelringe)!

On the pricing, for four persons (3 full meals, 2 coffee and 4 desert) pay 75 Euro is a fair price!
Need to mention, the waiter got the change wrong and I had to complain (not a bit, he "forgot" to give back 20 Euro)

Verdict:

Positive:

+TASTE
+Speed
+Price

Negatives:

-Can't forget the fast delivery which makes me feel sitting in Mac Donald's
-Lack of Space and results of it (bad air inside after a while)
-Waiter - lack of professionalism (we went there in summer and had nothing to complain)
