Alsace is known for its rich culinary heritage, marked by several renowned dishes like sauerkraut, baeckeoffe, flammekueche or the bredels that can be enjoyed especially during Christmas markets. Most restaurants in Strasbourg offer all of these dishes at reasonable prices. A must-visit to discover the true Alsatian culture!
The idea behind this new restaurant in Strasbourg is simple: a celebration of pastry! Here you can find a range of thirty tarts made from selected products from local producers. Great, original-tasting cakes, unusual products, and more. The setting is contemporary, with live DJ music at the weekend. You can see the tarts prepared in the wood oven before your eyes.
One step from the petite france and the Cathedral of Notre Dame, on a busy street (rue des tailleurs pierre). This place is charming, offers good service and generous portions. They serve typical products and it is very recommendable.
I chose this restaurant, because it has two outstanding features that really blew me away. The atmosphere is great, with a decor of wood and stones, and the boss is passionate about fresh produce, so everything on the menu comes from the farms and forests of the region. The famous steak on a cast iron grill is definitely worth trying ... you'll finish cooking the steak on the grill pan in front of you. Delicious! We finished the meal with their famous chocolate fondue for two, a treat. If you want to enjoy a very original restaurant, give it a go.
It is difficult to find an open café in Strasbourg before 10am, so we found this little Italian brasserie to have our breakfast. Located at the corner of Castle Square, just opposite the Kammerzell house, it offers very simple chocolates, and all kinds of hot drinks accompanied by local, or the most common pastries.
I was in Strasbourg this summer and I loved this restaurant. It is situated on the Petite France overlooking the canal and has a very original menu. I recommend the salads (giant) and Alsatian pasta. (Spaztel).
It´s location off the main facade of the Cathedral of Strasbourg would already make it deserving enough to be here on this blog -- from the main terrace, there is a stunning view of the Cathedral and all its glory. Beyond that, they serve crepes with extraordinary varied ingredients and you can eat in a nice, unique setting for 10-15 euros without having to go to a big, pretentious restaurant.
Not far from the docks, this tea shop won't fail to delight you, despite the rather disappointing decor. They offer local products, pastries and chestnuts, and a wide range of flavoured teas (2.20 euros).
A very friendly, welcoming restaurant where you can try some great Japanese food (sushi, sashimi, yakitori, tempura ...). The fish is fresh and top-quality, and the varied menu comes at very affordable prices.
