Traditional Alsace food

One of many restaurants close to Republique square. It's oppenned since 1932, I think?! It's bigger than it looks from the street, there's large inside space with many tables. They serve traditional Alsace cuisine. Everything I had was very good (spetzle & flammekueche). I didn't have wine, but... read more

Everything we ate and drank here was delicious! My husband had the seafood tower and I had steak. The night we were there they had the most wonderful vin chaud warming in a big copper pot. The smell was infectious. The staff are very friendly. Can't recommend this restaurant enough.

This place truly offers very Alsatian dishes that are essentially the original ... and I can tell from having been there (i.e. Alsace) many times.

We are usual customers of this restaurant and we usually enjoy the choucroute there, although it is a bit overpriced. Last friday, on the deadly November, the 13th, at 11:30 pm, the manager asked everyone to leave the restaurant ...and pay. The Bataclan venue is 650m away. Attacks were still going on. On this very special night, many bars gave... More

A nice taste of Alsace in the middle of Paris near Place de la République. The restaurant also has a well furnished seafood bar. Unfortunately there are not enough servers to provide a good service and the poor guys have to run all night from one table to the other

A huge, brashly lit restaurant, an old Parisian haunt that keeps on serving up heaps of choucroute. It's the place to head for sauerkraut and high quality sausages and smoked meats that accompany it. Flammenkuche is on the menu, an alsatian version of pizza. If it matches your taste and food interest, worth ordering. Onion soup, heralded by many reviewers,... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
