The restaurant Trotthus in Riquewihr can accommodate 40 guests and immediately wins by its warmth and its Alsatian atmosphere. The thick and old west wall is simply the wall of the rampart built during the year 1291! The setting is ancient: large exposed beams, some of which date back to the early sixteenth century, a collection of antiques collected by the owner of the house and linked to winemaking, an imposing and ancient wine press on which you can dine or drink a glass. The Chef, Philippe Aubron, having knocked nearly 20 years around the world - from Japan to Australia and to the Caribbean - decided to drop his pots in Riquewihr. His Gourmet cuisine, inventive and refined, makes extensive use of the produce of Alsace and will satisfy the most demanding palates.

Was having sushi for pre entrée and then we proceeded to Au Trotthus to complete our gastronomical dinner. Food from entrée to plat to dessert was perfect. Fusion nicely done. The plat which was the duck was braised medium in nice fusion sauce with Jap/South East Asia taste. The owner was very friendly and speaks good English. A must visit... More

After almost a month on the road in Europe this recommendation from Trip Advisor was a real gem with the quality, food style and personal service from Philippe and his family. The menu is carefully crafted to suit most diners. We did not take up the offer of the fixed price menu but not because they did not look just... More

First of all: belgian restaurants should take an example of the restaurants we visited in the Elzas, because almost all of them had an allround child menu, not like the mindless hamburger or chicken with fries and appelmash... (How do we expect our children to appreciate good food if we only serve them rubbish in restaurants!). So, for that I... More

Whenever we go to Riquewihr we reserve a table to eat here. Mr. Philippe Aubron, who has earned a large number of Michelin stars in his life-time, is a most gracious and amusing host and a fantastic chef. He offers two set menus at a very reasonable price, and for a supplement of 15 euros per person he pairs the... More

We came to this restaurant for lunch, and having experienced other restaurants where personnel rarely speaks English, were quite surprised that the personnel here spoke quite a few languages including French, English and Japanese. Even though we didn’t make a reservation ahead of time, they found a table for us without a problem (maybe because we came early). The chef/owner... More

Father, a superb chef with certificates to prove it, lived 17 years in Japan; the mother he married there and their children staff the restaurant, warm and friendly, with imaginative dishes using the freshest local ingredients. The house reisling was superb. Michelin says "bib gourmand"; for me the meal well surpassed many I've had in one-star restaurants and better, and... More

Really enjoyed the experience. There was a choice of fixed menus and a la carte which gave a good choice of dishes. Good balance of fish and meat. Service was very friendly and informative. Relaxed atmosphere and good fun evening

We had an excellent dinner last night at Au Trotthus. Chef Aubron gave us a very warm welcome and we had a chance to talk a bit as we were the first customers for the evening. While we enjoyed the typical Alsatian cuisine, we found this meal the most innovative and delicious. The food was amazing- French with some Japanese... More
