“Little Gem in Quaint Village of Gueberschwihr, Alsace”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We were staying in Guerberschwihr and stumbled across "Le Goldert". We enjoyed the plate de jour and were pleasantly surprised. At the cost of 13 € this was a delightful meal. It consisted of Terrine and salad, veal with rice in a delicious sauce followed by a Creme Anglaise and soft meringue. We also shared a half bottle of wine which went down a treat.

The decore and ambience was authentic Alsace, with a lovely cloth on the table with cloth napkins. The restaurant was full, there wasn't a spare table to be had and with one waitress on duty, she handled all the guest with ease. We were served in an appropriate time, no waiting, it was seamless.

If you are in the area it is a restaurant to try. They also have the next door shop which specialises in Foie Gras. It is called Boutique Canoie.

“Gourmet meal”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We visited Le Goldert on a cold, rainy Tuesday night and were the only customers the entire time we were there. This would seem like a bad sign, except the small town was completely deserted as we walked a few blocks from our rented apartment to the restaurant.

As seems to be common in our French experience, it was at first a bit difficult to tell if the proprietors were happy to have our business on a slow night or inconvenienced when we walked in the door. Things warmed up though and we shared a pitcher of local wine and both ordered the 'recommendation' from the board: scallops (coquilles saint-jacques). This was one of the few seafood dishes we encountered on our trip and what a happy find! The scallops were large and seared, served in a ring surrounding a rice pilaf, all on top of a creamy tomato-y tarragon sauce. Absolutely wonderful!

The only weak spot of our entire experience was completely a personal weakness, rather than one of the restaurant (and hence the 5-star rating). Le Goldert has won prizes for its foie gras and it was prominently featured across the menu (which is also fine - just not my thing and thus we stayed away from it when ordering). Prior to our meal's arrival, the waitress brought us each a small plate of three different types of foie gras. Not wanting to be rude, we ate most of it (my hubs helped me with mine thank goodness). I had trouble getting past the concept but if I am truly honest, it was pretty good. I could see why they have won numerous awards for their foie gras (though I don't think I will be eating much of it in the future!)
