Visited on 17th March. After having last visited a month before. Food was appaling. Pork knuckle reheated and cold inside. The duck was like a shoe sole. When we discussed/complained in a mild and collaborative mood about this with the owner he told us to never come back again. As this was shocking from a reputable restaurant we asked also... More

This restaurant offers really classy food, warm friendly service and an attractive 1st-floor terrace for summer dining. We went here our first night in Mulhouse as it was near our hotel and we enjoyed it so much we booked for our final night, too. There's a good-value 3-course menu but the portions are so generous, we just had a main... More

Here's a great address to remember. The cuisine is French and traditional, the products are fresh and of high quality, hearty dishes, even for children. It is a restaurant with a nice room and a nice terrace, although the walls of the latter deserve a little refreshment next Spring. Prices are a little high but you will not regret your... More
