We have long been fans of Logis de France establishments - not just for an hotel in which to spend the night but for somewhere to eat as well. Our expectations are that associated restaurants will be a cut above the rest. I can not afford to dine in Michelin starred places charging for diner what I pay for an airfare to get to France in the first place. Logis Restaurants usually provide excellent food at affordable prices. Chez Jean is no exception.
We visited Saverene as part of a cruise on the Canal de la Marne au Rhin and a visit to the Tourism Office revealed the literature on Chez Jean. Chez Jean offers typical Alsatian Specialities.
Menus: The basic Menu is three courses for €31. For €44 there is a choice of three courses from the carte with a palate cleanser between entrée and main.
The €31 menu on the night we visited in June 2010 was Poularde in Jelly with Salad – Alsatian Pike Perch in White Sauce or Sauerkraut with Assorted Meats – Sorbet with Brandy.
The Carte lists -
nine entrees (starters) €11 - €22 : (the most expensive being roast scallops and prawn salad)
Six fish dishes €19 - €27 ( €27 - the half lobster gratiniert Cardinal )
Five Regional Specialities - €14 to €19 with one listed at €43 Sauerkraut with Meats for two persons.
Sweet tooths are well catered for - €4.85- €7 ( Raspberry Sorbet in a White Chocolate Basket).
The carte de Vins is extensive and we only looked at Regional wines including Riesling, Pinot Gris, Muscat, Pinot Blanc-Clevner, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Noir. Average bottle price was €24. Wine by glass and carafe also available.
The décor of the restaurant is alpine. The only criticism I can make is re the table spacing. Not unusual for France, I suspect, tables are close together and it is difficult to gesticulate in the French manner without disturbing people at the next table.
Favorite Dish: In anticipation of generous serves, I elected to forgo an entrée and ordered from the carte. I could not go past the Pigs Knuckle with Sauerkraut (€18). See photo number 2 and you will agree that I made the correct choice.
My companions also chose from the carte and were more than satisfied with the taste and the size of their meals. After starting with glasses of Crement de Alsace or local beer , we drank Alsace Pinot Noir.
All in all an enjoyable meal of staple Alsatian fare.

Well, to get TO Saverne it is Best to use a Car, but once you are in Saverne and you Start to get AROUND Walking is nice.That Way you get to See the nice buildings. The parking is Not free, but for a Few hours it is Not expensive. I forgot the exact Price, but 2 or 3 Euros should give you enough Time to explore the city.
