The hotel-restaurant is in a house listed as a historic monument and is directly on the main square of Obernai. In summer the terrasse is lined with flowers, shaded and overlooks the Hotel de Ville and tower. There is a beautiful carved stone well just outside.
Inside the walls are covered with original paintings by Spindler accompanied by stained glass and wood panelling. It is all very traditional Alsatian and thoroughly charming.
You can use the web site below or go to the Logis de Franc web site and type in Obernai. Choose Hotel de la Cloche to get the web site. There is a choice of languages.
Favorite Dish: Ed had on trout in Riesling sauce with linguini, and I got trout amandine with roasted potatoes. The meal was excellent although there was so much we couldn't possibly have eaten dessert even though the desserts looked wonderful.
We did not choose to have dinner at restaurant de la Cloche but we hesitated a lot. It stands in a historical house with great traditional architecture and, what is even more important, they are considered to have an excellent chef and very good traditional Alsatian dishes. Next time may be !
Restaurant Les Remparts stands in the middle of the old city of Obernai. It is family run and stands in a half timbered house. The dining room is a long and narrow room, along the Rue du Marché.
Favorite Dish: We had:
Boudin (Black pudding)
Munster soaked in Kirsch, served with cerises à l’eau de vie (cherries in brandy)
Everything was excellent. I recommand this address.
As I wanted to give a photo of each meal (there would not have been enough space here), they are under "local customs"
Amble off to one of the various street terraces to have a refreshing drink whil you consult your Michelin guide on where to go next...
Favorite Dish: Obviously the Kronenbourg !
Have a look at restaurant tips written by other VT members.
You smell the bakeries before you see them. There are several and they smell good and look good. The baked items are numerous and beautifully arranged to entice you in the door and make you want to buy.
Often we want a light lunch or a picnic and often find them in a bakery. Many sell deli sandwiches and pizza type breads. You can also get great desserts!
We discovered a pretzel shop in Obernai that serves pretzel sandwiches called maricettes that come in a great variety.
You will not go hungry in Alsace.
Favorite Dish: You expect someone to choose a favorite in a bakery?! No way . . . It is ALL good.
During our School Trip in Elsace, we stopped over in Obernai for lunch.
In a smaller side street we found this restaurant with this funny name. It looked good and we went in.
That was a really good choice! The food was awesome and the dishes huge!
Favorite Dish: Cordon Bleu with fries for € 16. It's huge and very delicious!
My friend also recommends the Onion Cake (Tarte a l'oignon) for € 6.
