Trip advisor does not quite allow you to rate this as I would like! It was good...prompt welcoming service, good food, fair price, reasonable wine...just lacked that something for me to say it was very good. We had a selection of local dishes which were interesting to try...perhaps a bit heavy overall for my taste but that is he way it is around here. Lots of locals eating here which I always think is a good sign and we enjoyed our evening in this very typical restaurant .

From the outside, the restaurant isn't the most inviting one. But once inside, you enjoy the traditional look and feel of a local Alsace restaurant.
We tried a local dish (fondue vigneronne) with a group of friends (33 persons in total). All of us enjoyed it very much. The meat, small pieces of tender veal, is cooked in heated oil based on Alsace wine and spices. This DIY way of cooking at your table is pleasant and gives you time to really enjoy your food. Portions are more than you can eat!

After dining on the hearty (translates to heavy) traditional Alsatian cuisine over the past four nights, we were craving something a little more refined. Tonight promised to be different.... we were told about this local gem called Caveau Morakopf in the tiny town of Nedermorschwihr by a lovely Irish couple who were also staying at our B&B, La Haute Grange that seemed to know their food. They loved it so much, they ate there 2 nights in a row. It so happened that Caveau Morakopf was Maggie and Philippe’s (our B&B proprietors) favorite restaurant too. We thought that was a good enough recommendation.

Caveau Morakopf turned out to be a culinary revelation with an interesting history. Owned by the same local family for 45 years, the passion and the dedication of this establishment in this tiny, unassuming town is something to behold, with recipes passed down from generation to generation. Yet despite the tradition, there was a purity and ‘cutting edge’ to the recipes in terms of lightness and freshness of local produce - not at all heavy like the majority of the Alsace dishes that we had eaten over the past few days.

Most impressive of all was the equal-to-none service we received from owner, Paul-Andre Guidat. Having worked for the likes of The Peninsula and Shangri-La Hotel chains for much of his professional life, he knew a thing or two about customer service and satisfaction.



So let’s get down to the nitty gritty: As my main, I ordered a dish called Fleischschnacka. Quite a mouthful, I know, but the dish itself was a culinary wonder: slices of minced beef rolled in fine slices of pasta dough, cooked and served in a sensational beef broth, accompanied by a selection of side salads. I relished this dish with a couple of glasses of a crisp Pinot Gris from Alsace. Heaven on a stick! Peter enjoyed an incredible Magret de Canard avec Sauce au Miel (duck breast with a honey sauce, served with potato and salad), which he enjoyed with an Alsace Pinot Noir, slightly chilled.

After a shared dessert of fresh strawberries 'au naturel' - that’s right, no cream, sugar or licquer - Peter and I shared a raspberry brandy, totally clear in color but with a 43% alcohol kick. Like our Irish friends at the B&B, we were so thrilled with our restaurant experience that we booked dinner at Caveau Morakopf again for the following night!

My recent travel took me to France and one of the regions visited was Alsace. Nestled in a village called Niedermorschwihr is a great Alsacian restaurant called Caveau Morakopf. It has one of the most exquisite cuisine that I have ever tasted in all of my years of travel. The restaurant serves typical Alsacian menu and mostly are home-cooked type of cuisine. A true gastronomic expert would really appreciate the unique cuisine and finds it a real treasure. The restaurant also boosts fantastic service and is great place to go as the ambience is really homey and the staffs are really wonderful. It is a must-go-to restaurant if you are ever in the Alsace region. One word to described the reatsuarant - MAGNIFIQUE!
