The best dining in Strasbourg

, ,

Strasbourg, like the rest of Alsace, is famous for its cuisine, which is slightly different from traditional French food due to the German influence. There are several Michelin-starred restaurants in the city, as well as many brasseries and cafes.

We recommend ordering an excellent tour that will suit both ordinary tourists and the most sophisticated gourmets. See more details here.
