Everything was perfect. Honestly not a hint of bad taste.
Great room great food.
A special note to the "canette" which was cooked at low temperature, and was melting in mouth. Amazing.

Restaurant Fleur de Sureau in Gambsheim France is the kind of restaurant every town would be proud to put on a daily Menu du Jour that is affordable for all. Not only affordable but tasty, varied and good value for money.
Our recent lunch at Fleur de Sureau was a delight in so many ways. First, we’d not expected to discover such a fine restaurant in that part of rural France. Though it’s not far from Strasbourg the town is small enough without much in the way of anything to see for a tourist, the only thing of note is in the past when the town was the site of a fierce battle and almost obliterated in the 1944 Ardennes campaign.
We found a free table on the outside terrace. A word: the locals are creatures of habit and we noted everyone who was having lunch at Fleur de Sureau had arrived and been seated by 12.30. The restaurant is opposite the train station but so few trains come through we weren’t bothered by train traffic. There was more farm equipment traffic than anything else but that’s as it should be given the area around Gambsheim is mostly agricultural.
We began with drinks and Madame brought us little nibbles that were pureed chick peas with curry flavouring and homemade bread sticks for dipping. Shortly after our first course arrived. Each was a picture. Mine was a dish of Foie Gras with grapes, a simple dressing and warm brioche with raisins. Madame served a chilled Alsatian Riesling to accompany the dish. Foie gras doesn’t need to be messed with in my opinion, grilled or raw, terrined or frozen, it’s deserves to be treated with respect. But it so often isn’t by chefs trying to do ‘something different’. This dish enhanced the quality of the Foie without overpowering it.
My Dining Companion’s gazpacho soup with fresh fried prawns on the side was an arrangement of ingredients in a shallow bowl. Madame poured over the smooth red chilled soup and each ingredient floated to the top. Not sure the accompanying fried prawns really went with the soup but it was hard to criticise them as they were perfectly butterflied, coated and fried and arrived at the table just warm.
Our main courses were: Roast Turbot and Fresh Spring lamb chops. I had the Roast Turbot which was a gamble given we were a long way from the sea. Fleur de Sureau must have a good fish monger as the fish was beautifully roasted which brought out the lovely sweetness that is so often quashed in this magnificent fish. Not too sure about the black rice accompaniment which was a bit stodgy and rather tasteless. My DC had the lamb chops. All totaled there were a full rack’s worth of ribs, about eight, each one succulent and pink. Hard to find anything wrong with these except we wanted to order another plateful.
Our desserts were: the St Louis lemon tart and the fresh strawberry tart. The Lemon tart was open faced and came with a Yuzu ice cream and a meringue stick. The sharpness of the lemon and the crispness of the underlying pastry played well off each other. My strawberry tart was fresh slices of marinated strawberries in a soup of strawberry juice with a quenelle of mint ice cream on top. A charming way to end a summer meal.

Spacious interior, very nice welcome, waitress very knowledgeable on wines and made a super suggestion from the wine list to accompany our meal. Food was excellent and the “Tarte au citron” was the best I ever had. Highly recommend this restaurant. Romantic, with friends or business it would be good for any occasion.

Really and excellent spot. Located only 2 minutes from the Autoroute (exit Gambsheim-Weyersheim), turn right just after the railway crossing.
The food is imaginative and inspired and the service excellent. They are also open Mondays. The "chef's inspiratation" menu was a lot of fun as you never know what is going to arrive next.
Interior decor is pleasant and simple with the focus on the fine food.
Highly recommended for fine dining. Menus are in the 30 - 40 Euro range.
