Our hosts at La Villa du Coteau recommended this restaurant. It was a short drive from Obernai and well worth the drive. The décor is like a Parisienne Brasserie run by the friendliest and quirkiest maître de, passionate about his restaurant. The menu is extensive and uses fresh local produce. My husband had beef and I had lamb. We are... More

This is a TOP french brasserie, with a very enthousiastic owner called Hervé. This guy knows how to run his restaurant, serving nice dishes at very reasonable prices with super wines. He is an ambassador in natural french wines. Almost every wine comes in a decanter, you will discover some beauties in your glass.

Our English, German and French speaking group appreciated the firmly greeting and attentive service. We all went with Pizzas for no particular reason, but all enjoyed them. Tastey crust and strong on the tomato sauce, we were all happy.

Busy restaurant with friendly owner and good regional cuisine. Good choice of wines too, and the restaurant hasn't fallen victim to the urge to modernize it into something ugly, modernistic, or incomprehensible (which, unfortunately, happens a lot with classical restaurants in France). It has a good brasserie like atmosphere, with good food and wines - what elso do you need?

We visited Au Potin in Barr and found a nice atmosphere, local place, kind yet busy and a bit stressed owners of Au Potin. They really tried to help my friend being allergic to flour and customised the food and dishes to her. Big portions, steak made really well, the fish I had was however a bit too well done.... More

The waitress who served us tried her very best to xplain the menu to us in English. i felt really bad; I didn't expect her to explain one by one to... More
