Finally at Aux Armes de France for the first time after 50 years!!
Opinión escrita el 28 de Mayo de 2018
I have followed the Michelin Red Guide reviews over the years and always wanted to make the time to visit this restaurant/hotel. Though the Gaertner family has given up on the Michelin dance, that is, no stars, I knew the kitchen had been renowned for more than 50 years, from father to son. My wife and I dined here last night. It was a dream from my "star hunting" in France nearly a generation ago. The warmth of the dining rooms (2) are from another era; warm, walnut panelling, Art Deco sconces, furniture from another period, all a far cry from the ultra modern look so much in favor! The service fit with the decor; classic. The meal, well, just out of this world! The tomato tart tastes far better than the photo which is amazing. The Atlantic lobster gratin with white asparagus will forever have "three stars" in my book. The sole with homemade noodles au gratin was as perfect as it can get. The wine was a grand cru gerwitrztraminer by Jean-Baptiste Adam, 2015, from Ammerschwihr. The apartment was spacious, well-appointed, modern and very comfortable. The bill was a "gift" in comparison to the grand hotels, and few of those have a kitchen and dining to match this level.
Just stopped for lunch - fantastic

Restaurant was cozy, very welcoming. We enjoyed a three-course lunch, both had the venison which was delicious. Wait staff true professionals. Overall a very nice experience while we shopped for wine next-door at Kuehn.
Great food and accommodation

We paid for an upgrade and had a spacious room with a large, comfortable bed. The bathroom was huge, even if the colour, green, was not to our liking! Enjoyed a good nights sleep, followed by a tasty breakfast.
Never mind Michelin and it's stars....quality and reason prevail!

While planning a trip to Alsace to visit our eldest daughter who currently resides in Strasbourg, my 90+ year old mother recommended we spend a night and sample the cuisine at Aux Armes de France. She and Dad had thoroughly enjoyed their stay 60+ years ago. Well I'm glad to report that the place is still worth a detour. The owner/chef figured out in 2006 that giving up a One Star courtesy of Michelin was the correct business decision. It enabled him to skip the hullabaloo Michelin expects of one star establishments, cut his pricing and (finally?) make a profit off his family's generational labor of love. The kitchen clearly produces one star quality and presentation....of traditional French cuisine (thankfully!). No chi-chi, no quasi-whatever trendiness of ingredients, spices etc. "La Bonne et honnete cuisine Francaise d'autre temps". Congratulations to the chef/owner who's kept his cool notwithstanding Michelin.
The rooms are reasonably priced, spotless, albeit a little dated...but then who cares? After a delightful dinner the lights are turned out quickly.
If you're looking for honest, quality traditional French cuisine....don't skip this one.
Mom was right to send us here.

The rooms were clean but faded, no luxury bedding, and old furniture.
The restaurant is no big quality and we were surprised that this had Michelin stars in the past.
There are better places to stay and eat in this area.
