The cream of the cream. In an area where no less than rhree 3-star restaurants compete with each other, Le Crocodile achieves a real tour de force to preserve traditional cuisine without falling into stiffness.

Foie d'oie poîlé et pommes reinette au gingembre. Timballe de grenouilles et flan de cresson. Filet de sandre. Great Cheeses. Artistic desserts. Sumptuous Alsace wines cellar.
