luckily i got here early on a Friday night as it was soon packed with what looked/sounded like a mixture of locals and other tourists like me. on a rainy night the welcome was warm and the inside of the winstub was cosy. the tables, as in many winstubs, are quite close together, which is nice because you get to chat with your neighbours. the 'patron' offered to help me and other guests. with translating rhe menu, so if you don't speak French, don't be put off, although I managed to understand it well enough to order. he was also helpful in suggesting wines to go with courses. although feeling a bit guilty about it, i started with some foie gras, being a speciality, and very tasty it was indeed. then, being in Alsace, I had to try the choucroute garnie, and my! what a feast! the garnish being in the firm of various pork products, sausages, etc hiding the sauerkraut. and then although not exactly in the Black Forest, I was near enough to have for desert a slice of the eponymous gateau which was quite different from the dry retro version. i did intend to go back but i ran out of nights!
