The rooms are pleasant but the main reason to stay here is the restaurant (which of course can be enjoyed even if you don´t stay there).
Food and service was excellent. Do not miss their Foi Gras dishes, their home made terrine and their fried fresh. Both generous and excellent. The rest, fish and quail for main dish followed by two different but equally fine desserts were also very nice.
The wine list is worth mentioning. The restaurant has its own vineyard so for white wine the only choice is very good alsatian wines from their own vineyard. This might sound limited but why should you "cross the river to fetch water". The house wines are "open" so you can get 25 or 50 cl. if you dont want a full bottle. This gives you the possibility to try more than one wine.
The only alsatian red is Pinot Noir which honestly is not of the same quality as the whites. Avoid it and drink instead a good Riesling with the meat. If you insist upon red wine they have a small selection of "real reds" from other french regions.
