Great food and stays open later than most.

This cosy family-run restaurant in the style of a stube, wooden panelled and semi basement, ski decor even in summer. Friendly, efficient service and delicious rustic traditional food with plenty of choice and some vegetarian dishes. The tarts are like very thin crust pizzas. Bit of a wait when... read more

We stopped for lunch at this 'typical' Alsacian tavern. We were given a table even though we did not have a reservation. It seems that it is a very popular place with the locals, and it filled up quickly. The service was quite slow, but the staff's friendliness and the fact that they worked very hard overcame what could have... More

We came in the "Taverne Asaciene" for our last night in Gerardmer and it was a good surprise. A warm welcome a good ambiance and the most important a very good food. All for a reasonable price. A good place compare to some other "traditional" restaurant in Gerardmer.

Very traditional and very filling food. Good value for money. A bit cramped inside, noisy and hot. Not the perfect place for a romantic night out.

French cuisine done well is the best the world has to offer. In Alsace you can eat "French" but let us say also "more German" or Alsace style. This restaurant offers the best of both worlds. A very tasty choucroute but quality not just quantity. Especially the fish dishes are worth a try. There daily "menu du marche" offers 3... More

Visited last summer hoping to get authentic local dishes, but were very disappointed. The service was incredibly slow and not welcoming. The food was awful. The meat in the stew was tough and overcooked, whilst my wife's duck in strawberry sauce was tough with a horrible pink slush like a cheap yoghurt thrown over it. We discovered that there are...

Friendly staff, good food niçely presented. During high season, booking is a must! Is a bit noisy but is all part of the 'ambiance'!

Well, the title pretty much says it all. We were a party of 6, plus 2 kids and eveyone enjoyed their meal. Great desert as well and the price was more than ok. The service could be better in order to match the food. Tip: Do make a reservation for lunch, as it was absolutely packed.
