I had veal kidneys, nothing exceptional, disappointing at the quality. The waitress was was as gloomy as the setting, she must have been French not German, no cheerfulness.

We recently ate lunch at Zum Pfifferhus. Both food and service were good with a good selection of traditional Alsation dishes along with wine and beer options. Portions for lunch are fairly large so you can easily share appetizers and main dishes or just forego the appetizer. In typical German style you may share a table as there are only... More

We came here after being very disappointed from another restaurant, and - nobody spoke German or English. we ordered some wine and the recommendations of the day. Service was good, despite the language problems, and the food was excellent and really authentic. But even better was the atmosphere in such an old historic restaurant, telling much about the past. Almost... More

Classic, Alsatian restaurant. Our group was 14 in total and the evening was lovely. A family came , danced in authentic costume. A true highlight of the trip.

Recommended by Michelin was the reason we came here. The food was good and abundant (too much?). The temperature was boiling and no air allowed in. The lady in charge was extremely rude. We will not come back to such a place where, despite the good food, a yelling and screaming by the service personnel is allowed.

We were passing through the region as part of a 60-day trip, and knew nothing about this region before we came. We stopped by here on a Sunday night in July when everything else in the area was closed. Thank goodness Wistub Zum Pfifferhus was open! What a surprise and a treat this restaurant was! The food served here in... More

Set in picturesque Ribeauville the restaurant maintains the 'image' with traditional decor. The dining room is not large and so seating is quite close. The menu has a good range of regional dishes, modestly priced and presented in a 'traditional way' (this is not nouvelle cuisine) with the jarret de porc and confit de canard being recommended. Drinks were also... More

I believe it is the best chucrute in Alsace. Layered in the sauerkraut are sausages, smoked pork, potatoes. My mouth is watering remembering the delights. The tarte l'onion is not to miss. unlike any in the city. I have visited this dining heaven many times and it continues to deliver. Chef Huber Keller was born about 100 meters from this... More

Definitely go here if you want delicious Alsatian food and wine - we especially loved the oxtail, Alsatian noodles, and the house aperitif (cremant with pain d'epice liqueur)! The restaurant is very traditional and quaint, and it was full of locals so always a good sign!

Had dinner there and even without reservations could get a table for two. We ordered two typical Alsace dishes and both we're delicious.
