We had a lovely meal here, menu is short but fresh, wine was excellent value. The owner runs the front desk, does the orders, wine, and clears the tables, don't know how he manages it all but he does!
Would recommend and would dine there again.

We ate at the La Cocotte de grand-mere and loved the warmth the cute little restaurant. The menus are written on a chalk board they bring to your table, as they change the menu daily.

I hate the risotto with scallops and my husband had a chicken rolled in bacon with other stuff that I had too much wine to remember. All was great.

The placed filled up quite fast and we only noticed french/locals. A warm memory of our trip.

They have a limited menu but what they do, they do to perfection. I much prefer this approach to the bloated menus of the mainstream brasseries in town. Also, the portion sizes are much better balanced and the food is not as fat as seems to be the norm in Alsace. The three delicious and beautiful courses were just perfect. The waiter knew English and had a good understanding of both the food and wine. Very highly recommended!

We loved this place, found on a side street just off the main tourist routes, but still in the heart of the town. The menu only offers four quite distinct choices for the main course, but all of them where excellent. WIth a family with two teenage daughters, main course and dessert, a little caraff of wine, we spent just 85 Euro - absolutely amazing. Splitting the 300g faux fillet for our daughters was no problem at all - and they got two full made up plates, with each just 1/2 the meat - all without any surcharges!
With respect to the limitted choice, I guess, the best thing to do is to check on your stroll through the city the evening's menu - just to make sure that it appeals to everyone in your party.

Liked the small fresh menu approach to food presentation. Getting used to the bit longer dining experience is a bit tough but the service was very good. We alsomthoughtnthe prices to be very fair.
