We spent a night in the lovely village of Wissembourg. Based on the reviews we'd read, we had to do dinner here. Did it live up to the expectation!!! We reserved a table (not needed due to low season and rain that day) to ensure we'd not be turned away. Service was impeccable from the beginning to end. Most employees spoke a bit of English (and of course German) so we were able to communicate well and understood the French and German language menu. My wife had a vegetable soup that was creamy and buttery, along with zander fillet fish, capped off with my dessert of apple crumble. I had the "menu decouverte" (the discovery menu) that began with broiled shrimp over salad (I hate salad; I loved this salad along with the shrimp), followed by Bambi tenderloin with spatzel (the spatzel was a tad overcooked but still tasty) and marinated shredded cabbage (similar to sauerkraut but not as sour or vinegary), and finished off with my wife's creme brullee. This was my first time eating venison and I loved it! The creme brullee was missing the nice crust of cooked sugar but the taste was very good and the appearance was nice (it was served aflame burning off the kirschwasser liquor).
The discovery menu was Euro 45. This is not a cheap meal but you are hard pressed to find a better restaurant. There are many restaurants in Wissembourg (we lunched at a tiny place in town) but the 5 minute drive to Altenstadt is worth the food pleasure.
Go, you won't be disappointed
