L’Éveil des Sens (The Awakening of the Senses): the name itself is enough to pique one’s interest.
This semi-gourmet restaurant is located in a small Alsatian house in the heart of Strasbourg’s old town, la Petite France. The chef offers a sophisticated cuisine that skillfully combines originality and tradition. Each delicately presented dish is wonderfully fragrant and a feast for the eyes. The flavor combinations are rich and finely balanced.
The menu, which consists of 4 starters, 4 mains, and 4 desserts, changes roughly every 2 months and according to the season. Even with this limited selection, everyone will be able to find something to their taste.
The staff is friendly, the atmosphere is charming and convivial, and the wooden decor with exposed beams is warm and welcoming.
L’Éveil des Sens is the perfect spot for a date night or an evening out with friends.
We particularly enjoyed the muted ambiance in the upstairs room (at dinnertime), the mouthwatering presentation, the dishes being both modern and comforting, and the good value for money. As for the food, the highlights of the evening included the perfectly poached egg with smoked cream and a generous serving of morels, the exotic flavors of the fillet of pollock with white beans, lime and coconut milk, and the zingy freshness of the rice pudding cylinder with yuzu and speculoos.
