An Alsatian restaurant in Strasbourg: Au Pont Corbeau 

Behind crown glass windows in the center of Strasbourg lies a family-owned winstub (a traditional Alsatian restaurant), where authenticity, conviviality and local traditions intermingle.  

The atmosphere is welcoming and typical of the region: wooden paneling and chairs with a heart carved in the backrest, Alsatian illustrations on the walls (particularly by Tomi Ungerer and Hansi), grey and blue Betschdorf stoneware pitchers… 

The rustic ambiance transports us to a different time. Behind the bottle glass windows, we feel like we’re in a cocoon, safe from the outside world. This winstub is like an extension of the Alsatian Museum next door, which is dedicated to the region’s folk arts and traditions.  

The menu proudly highlights Alsatian specialties: choucroute garnie (sauerkraut with a selection of meats, sausage, and potatoes), tête de veau (calf’s head), jambonneau (ham hock), grumbeereckiechle (potato pancakes), munster cheese … The tasty dishes and generous portions provide all the comfort of Alsatian cuisine.  

Le Pont Corbeau is also, and more importantly, a family affair. For over 40 years, Christophe Andt, now joined by his daughter Coralie, has carried on and championed the conviviality and culinary identity of Alsace. This family-oriented approach gives this winstub a strong identity and its very own character. 

What’s more, father and daughter are the loving caretakers of an incredible wine cellar, which they have gradually added to through years of regular meetings with wine makers.

Le Pont Corbeau is more than local wines and specialties. It’s a shared passion for Alsace, its cuisine, and its produce.

An Alsatian restaurant in Strasbourg: Le Saint-Sépulcre

Alsatian adages written in chalk on the walls here and there brighten up the interior of this traditional Winstub, where a few modern touches have been sparingly added to the decor. We ordered one of the many tempting regional specialties on the menu. While we were waiting for our ham en croûte, we leafed through a few of the books about Alsace that are displayed above the benches. The ham was juicy, while the crust was just as it should be – crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. The regional classic truly lived up to our expectations.
