Eating and Drinking in the Alsace

After having spent 4 1/2 hours on the road (coming from the Frankfurt area), we were ready to have our first meal before checking into our vacation rental.

There are many roadside restaurants. This particular one, the Au Lion only accepted guests for meals. We saw quite a few people turned away, if they only wanted drinks. We were there around 2pm, and yes, they served a lot of lunches around this time.

This was a Flambée Strasbourg, and it was delicious. I had no idea what I had ordered. I think it was the first one on the menu. Yes, I was hungry. The one in the back is a Flambée Chevre.

Our first day exploring the town and its shops. Most of them were opened until 6pm on Saturday.


My husband had the three-course menu ‘Terroir’ at the Hotel Restaurant Du Mouton. We enjoyed every meal around the area. We are not gourmets, and as “Hunger is the best cook”, we can’t be truly objective. But for your average foodie, Alsatian restaurants have plenty to offer.


We spent some outdoor and indoor time at Bar à bières St Ulrich in Ribeauvillé. We just could not pass the place without doing some beer-tasting each time.


This is my last post about our weekend in the Alsace. I will leave in two weeks’ time for another three-day trip to Tallinn/Estonia. I will keep you posted.
