Summary: A family-run eatery with a terroir focus.
Au Vieux Couvent offers a delightful journey through the culinary traditions of its region, with a focus on terroir and seasonal dishes. The restaurant is housed in a charming half-timbered building with a mushroom color that stands out in the landscape. Diners can enjoy the generous seasonal cuisine of Alexis Albrecht, who brings his vast experience from top-tier restaurants to this family-run establishment. The menu celebrates local produce, with ingredients such as Rhine fish and game from the Ried, as well as a plethora of vegetables and aromatic herbs from the family's own garden. The restaurant also boasts an extensive Alsatian wine cellar with fairly priced selections and notable bottles from elsewhere. Whether you're indulging in the tasting menu or enjoying the weekly specials, make sure to save room for the "festival of desserts" that showcases the sweet expertise of the eatery. With its inviting location near the flower-decked banks of the Brunnwasser, Au Vieux Couvent promises an unforgettable gastronomic experience that honors its local heritage.
