Had a tasty lunch here, good food and helpful staff. Very reasonable prices. Shady deck very welcome for lunch on hot Sunday. Glad we booked as busy with local people and other holiday makers.

We returned back after 10 min because that bar was closed, willing to order something to eat, but after she talked with her boss she yold me... More

Probably the best service I ever got in a restaurant, more later - first let´s talk about the food. The restaurant offers great choice for everyone. Food quality is better as expected and the price is really absolutely acceptable. Children will have fun with all the decoration in the restaurant. But the best thing is simple the customer experience focus... More

Excellent lunch with great service from friendly waitress. Very nice local specialities. Quantities for son and wife were over generous but I had no problem with delicious onglet de bœuf.

We decided to visit Haxakessel because it comes fairly recommended on tripadvisor. When we arrived the service team only reluctantly provided us with a table and after some waiting we received the menu cards. When trying to order we found that not all of the menus were actually available. When we received our meal the food was dry and not... More

Lovely setting in the centre. Lovely waitress who couldn't be kinder and more helpful. The food was simple but excellent and had some good wines. Having dined in the Chateau d'Isenbourg the night before we thought this was much more fun and tasty!

This is a nice bistro of character serving local fare in a very pleasant location with pleasant terrace. Food and wine is good if unexceptional, all at reasonable prices. Sadly the evening for us and most other diners was spoiled by the two children of just one family who ran and screamed as they chose over whom the parents exerted... More

During a private tour of the Alsace region of France, my husband and I visited Haxakessel (The Witches Kettle) for lunch one day, and it was awesome! We tried some of the local, sweet white wine to start, and then my meal of local sausages atop spaetzle and the most amazing sauerkraut made my day. Our server was wonderful too,... More

We made some Trips to rouffach and had lovely dinners. We enjoyed this restaurant two times. The salat with goat cheese, rumpsteak and especially the "jambe de pork" are very good.
