We were the first ones in the restaurant as we went early in the evening (around 6+ pm) on a Wednesday, but our food arrived only after 6 tables were served. We waited for almost an hour for the food and missed our train. The waitress on the lower level that we were on was racist and impolite. We overheard... More

Greeted by a huge 'haunch' of ham on a spit roast at the door. Good food, lots of it. Try Backeoffe.

Unable to get a table at our hotel this evening. We spotted a taxi and asked the driver to take us somewhere good to eat. He recommended the Maison Rouge, took us and picked us up. Traditional Alsace menu, we had onion tart, foie gras canard, lamb chops and faux fillet steak, all superb together with an excellent local pinot... More

This restaurant was a recommendation from a local, and did not disappoint. The woman we rented an apartment from made reservations for us here and we wish to recommend it as well. The look is of a rustic chalet that you might see in the Swiss alps. The menu offered something for everyone, with several options dependent on seasonal foods.... More

Starters were good, onion tart and salad were good but my home cooked ham was burnt, stringy and so salty I could hardly eat any, and I usually find restaurant food not salty enough. My wife's veal in cheese sauce was so rich it made us both feel a little sick. The puddings were mostly aerosol cream and sickly and... More

After reading reviews and it was in the Michelin guide we had high expectations & for the price and menu we were expecting fine dining. To be fair the starters, salad and onion tart was all very tasty. The mains, pork which looked tantalising on the way in was unedibly salty, i love capers, anchovies etc, but after 2 mouthfull's...

My wife and I usually do a lot of research before choosing a place to eat while on vacation. We rely on Trip Advisor as well as other sources. We were disappointed with Maison Rouge. The flavors just were not there, my wife had the off the bone ham, I had the pastry chicken. I have to say I have... More

You are greeted at the door by a large ham shoulder cooking on a rotisserie. Delicious and so moist. Definitely for the meat eaters. But then all Alsace is a gourmet delight. Great atmosphere in traditional surroundings.
