thoroughly enjoyed dinner here last night, homely environment, the food was generously portioned, and typically of the region. The staff were all very friendly. I would advise you to book in advance the restaurant was full by 715pm on a monday night!

I was meeting friends and needed somewhere convenient. I saw that this restaurant had good reviews and it looked like a comfortable place to kick back for a few hours. Our meals were all very good. I had the filet which was very tender, although I felt that the mushroom sauce was too heavy and smothered the steak. The beer... More

A typical Alsatian restaurant, among the best in its category in Mulhouse. Friendly atmosphere, do not hesitate.

Big portions, somewhat over facing, but really friendly staff. The Alsatian house wine was good quality. We were a party of 4 and would definitely recommend this restaurant. Would recommend the Ham joint with the Muster Sauce, tasted amazing..

Lovely Alsacian decor - lots of wood and warm red colours, not to mention the pig statues everywhere! We sat at the back at a big round table for 7 after making a reservation the same day for dinner. Apart from the 45 minute wait for food, we thought it was a great restaurant. Delicious dishes, big portions and a... More

This is a rustic and informal restaurant serving hearty portions of top-quality regional dishes. Service is friendly and attentive too. A wonderful dining experience in the historic centre of Mulhouse.

I've been at this restaurant on September 7th, 2015, for dinner. Restaurant was recommended by hotel receptionist and was a good choice. Opens at 7 pm and it's clean and welcoming. Fast service and good Alsace food. Draft local beer was excellent. Prices are similar with what you can find in that area...medium level.

Thank mirimie
