Christian is a wonderful little chocolate shop and tea room for your dining pleasure. As we arrived earlier than most shops, it was tough to find a spot to sit while the city opened up. Christian appeared to have their signs out, so we entered in the shop below looking to just get a coffee or hot chocolate. Much to our surprise, there was actually a full scale tea room upstairs. We sat down and enjoyed a lovely selection of 10 hot chocolates, several teas, and all the standard coffee variations. There was a full egg breakfast on offer, as well as pastries and cakes. We both chose a chocolate croissant, along with a hot chocolate to fit both our tastes. Sarah went with the traditional sweeter chocolate, while I struck a spicy tone with the Mexique. Both were delicious and hit the spot. The serving was ample enough for two to share a single hot chocolate, but on a cold day we opted for one apiece.
Favorite Dish: Hot Chocolate and pastries.

Not especially alsacian, more generally french.
La Casserole is situated in a very touristy area but patrons are 95% locals : families, small groups of friends, couples...
The restaurant is not obvious from outside and the deco is very subdued, the ambience is on the quiet and intimate side but the cooking is refined and excellent.
A very good place for a little splurge
The restaurant is closed on sundays
Favorite Dish: The fish dishes are especially recommended.
The menu changes often depending on the freshest season products available

Strasbourg is full of wonderful places to eat local cuisine. If you are staying in the city for several days it does however make a pleasant change to try something a little different. I came across a smallish Greek restaurant that was a delight. The Acropolis serves all the main greek dishes in a lovely atmosphere. The owners have really made an effort over the ambiance. The waitress was efficient and courteous and I was most impressed with how she dressed. Definitely worth a visit.

I was a bit tired of French cuisine and for once longed for some rice. So we decided to have a leisurely long lunch outside a Chinese restaurant on a sidewalk terrace.
Favorite Dish: It was a great choice. We enjoyed flambeed scampi, stirfried beef with fresh ginger and garlic, Cantonese rice and for dessert ginger in syrup. Together with Chinese beer, mineral water, coffee and tea the bill totalled 452 FF, which recalculated in 2007 would be about € 34 per person.

"L'épicerie" is a cosy little bistrot in Strasbourg's center. It's furnished like and oldfashioned colonial store so you'll feel beamed back to 100 years ago.
Their speciality are tartinettes - pieces of dark bread with a variety of different spreads. Best order a few different tastes with your friends and share, so you'll be able to enjoy a few of them. The deserts on offer are mouth-watering as well. And how about some French wine as a company for your lunch/dinner?
This is an easy-going place for having a relaxed lunch or a cosy hang-out for an evening with friends. Enjoy!
Favorite Dish: Tartinettes with sour cream, herbs and bacon

This restaurant is located in the heart of 'La Petite France' on the bank of the Ill River in one of the old houses there. It has an excellent menu and service, not to forget a wide selection of Alsatian wines. The atmosphere is great in this busy and bustling place. Traditional musicians perform at lunch and dinnertime.
Favorite Dish: Alsacian specialities.

The worst service I have ever experienced. A French waitress that can't use a corkscrew and 45 min without any drinks or menus. The lighting was set like an interrogation room, Note to Au Canon, you don't need to have all the lamps and all the overhead lights on especially when they are 75watt bulbs.
The above is just the beginning except to say that it was Christmas Eve. We left in protest, after two hours, one drink, no starter and but an entree did randomly appear. Luckily we managed to find somewhere else at 2200. We left some very thirsty hungry people at the mercy of Au Canon. I'm sure not the best Christmas they ever had...
Favorite Dish: The fois gras was the only dish that managed to get to our table in 2 hours, very good quality fois gras, would have been nicer if the wine we ordered had been served - at all - and if we had actually got the starter that was included in the menu before the fois gras.

Favorite Dish: They have a very good Flammekuche for 7 euros. For 14 euros, the Matjes (filleted small herrings) were very tasty.
Bière de Noël (Christmas bier), a bier with aromatics and lemon for 3 euros
Bibbeleskäs is another traditional dish from Alsace. You can see on the photo various delicatessen, steamed cooked potatoes and fresh cheese added with chives, parsley and other herbs.
We had for 17 euros a bottle of red wine "Rouge d'Otrott". I recommend this little known wine from Alsace.
The Nid de cigogne (stork's nest) for desert was for 6.50 euros and yummy (photo)

This small restaurant is situated in the Petite France. Note that it is called "Aux Deux France" and not "Aux Deux Frances". I wonder why!
It is quiet and cosy and the food is good.
Favorite Dish: The regular Tarte flambée/Flammekuche was 7 euros, the Tarte flambée gratinée (with cheese added on top) 7.50 euros, a 1/2 liter pot of Riesling 8.60 euros. The Flammekuche was good but the filling, though very good, was a bit "too much" for a typical Flammekuche.
