This one is an old (touristy) stopover in Strasbourg. Being from the town originally, I sometimes am asked by friends to book there. And honestly, it is a good option. To set the decor, it is an old house by the river, and obviously a very traditional restaurant. The place is really nice and... read more

I heard this place was good from Mark Wolter's of Wolter's World (great travel recommendations and videos, btw!). So I went partially to see if Mark knew what he was talking about (he does! I loved Aecht Schlenkerla in Bamberg, too!), and partially (admittedly) because it was in such a historic, slouchy old building right in the centre of Petite... More

I've had choucroute in Paris and many other places in France, as well as in Switzerland and (something very similar) in Germany. The house choucroute at Tanneurs is the best I've had - mild sauerkraut flavored with Alsatian wine, and a huge selection of traditional boiled meats (mostly pork cuts and frankfurters, but also including a ground-liver patty). The quantity... More

This was old style atmosphere - but not old enough. Seemed run down. The staff wasn't very friendly. Was hoping that it would give more of a nod to the history of the building (being a tannery). The food was very good. Nothing really to complain about, just not as special as I had hoped for our one "treat" dinner... More

Restaurant : Maison des Tanneurs. Ambience : This restaurant was started in 1572 as a traditional alsatian restaurant. It is housed in its original half timbered house by the pictureseque Petite France. Beaitiful setting overlooking the river. Service : Unrushed. Everything has its place and order. Food : This is pork and meat country. The star attraction was the choucroute... More

We visited this old tannery tavern on Christmas. Very nice situated, lovely atmosphere, nice wine list but that's it. Food is average and service below average. Worth visiting only for the spot and atmosphere.

If you are looking for an amazing Alsatian dining experience this is it! My French teacher who lived in the area for a year recommended this beautiful restaurant to us. Yes, it does help to know some French if you are going to dine here. I would not classify it as a "tourist trap" at all. In fact, it is... More

Located in the heart of the city in a very beautiful building Maison des Tanneurs proposes a menu of Alsace dishes. You can have the best choucroute but also many different things (fish, meat, vegetarian...). The service is good and the prices are correct.

This restaurant is located in the cozy Petite France district and is a gem for traditional food. The quality of food is excellent, portions are big, price is average and the service is fast. For the wine we got very good advice from the sommelier who found individual wines that fitted perfectly with our main dishes. If you want to... More

This was our introduction to Alsatian food and the world of choucroute. It has an excellent location of the bank of the Ill and in the heart of Petite France. The food was very good and in large portions which only someone starving could finish. My mother and I enjoyed our choucroute which was very hearty and well-prepared. Similarly, my... More
