Before you decide where to eat in Alsace, a quick trawl through my Alsace restaurants page on this site could save you a lot of money and disappointment. Change is in the air, and I aim to update it regularly, so keep checking in. Makeovers are in the air too: the fabled Auberge de l’Ill (famous tame stork pictured above, some dishes and monogrammed butter below), where they celebrated 50 years of 3-stardom on 9th February 2017, is closed for a month for a complete refurb and will reopen some time in mid-March. Over in Colmar, our favourite L’Atelier du Peintre just closed their doors for 2 months and will resume normal service on 31st March. Otherwise it’s business as usual, and you should find something for most budgets and most occasions. Bon app!

Originally from Yorkshire I've lived and worked in Spain, France, Mexico and Switzerland, now based in southern Alsace. Author of nine books, the most recent about Switzerland's finest farmhouse cheeses, I'm currently working on the tenth, devoted to Switzerland's finest wines and the people who make them. I freelance for anyone who'll buy my stuff (FT Weekend, How To Spend It online, Decanter, Culture Cheese Mag et al) plus I give cooking workshops and lead bespoke vineyard tours in Alsace and Baden.
