Good food in cozy hospitable environment

We wanted a quiet Alsacien dinner and found this establishment "in the cellar". Good food, wine and beer. Seemed popular with the locals - many who were well known to the waiters / waitresses. As mentioned by other reviewers, the tables were mixed - some couples like us, many groups (office... read more

This wonderful restaurant occupies a delightful below ground setting rumored to have once been the wine cellar for the Cathedral. Today its menu and reasonable wine list attract locals and tourists alike. The Alsatian style coq au vin prepared with Riesling and the Suprême de Volaille in a savory mushroom and cream sauce are among my favorite dishes, but there... More

The restaurant is underground, set in an old cellar which definitively gives it its charm. We went on a Sunday lunchtime and though the place was packed, we were still served by speedy and friendly staff. The food is typical Alsatian cuisine cooked to perfection and the portions are gigantic. You will have to starve yourselves prior to going there... More

The ambiance was great, and the food was very good. The waitstaff was quite helpful. If you are in the area it is certainly is worth the stop. Be sure to make a reservation!

The Caveau Gurtlerhoft seems to be able to cater to every type of guest. We dined near tables with lovers, business guests, families, and a few other tourists. Some had full dinners, while others just ordered desserts and coffee. They have created a very friendly atmosphere. We truly enjoyed our dinner of tarte flambee and a salad, then the Baeckeoffe...

We went here after a recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. We didn't have a booking but got there early and they were able to accommodate us. Only half an hour later they were turning people away though so I would recommend booking to avoid disappointment. They didn't have an English menu but we were able to order... More

We had Christmas dinner at Gurtlerhoft. What a treat! The portions are huge. We enjoyed the traditional Alsatian fare. The service was great, and the food came out fast and hot. I feel like we went on a busy night and still received top notch service. In my book, that deserves recognition! It is also in the center of the... More

Typical Alsatian huge portions. Frankly a starter and main are too much. The food is very good as is the service, but, as with everywhere in the town during the Christmas markets, reservation is a must. Right in the centre of town.Happy to recommend.

This restaurant is full of pleasant surprises. First off, you go down the stairs in a scene like in those medieval movies. Then, the staff here unlike some places in France is really friendly and they want to help you pick the best food to wine combination which is awesome. To top it off, the food and wine is excellent.... More
