We came upon this restaurant by accident and noted the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellent. A very pleasant evening from start to finish. My husband had the "rognon" of which he is a big fan and he wasn't disappointed with this. I had the Hamburger which was really good but it was the accompanying vegetables which were a hit. The carrots... More

We noticed this restaurant buzzing at lunchtime so decided to call in on spec at 7pm and booked for 7.30 no problem. An interesting 29e menu included 2 glasses of wine and coffee or tea. Seemed good value. The young waitress worked non stop by herself with no support and service was a little slow. Not her fault. A party... More

Followed by an exquisite dessert of 5 individual squares of different flavours with fresh cherries and strawberries... More

Au Detour is near the old centre in Metz, but in a quiet street, and not that obvious unless you walk past it. We looked at the menu outside, and then through the window, and both looked very inviting. We had the 29 Euro Prix Fixe lunch, which included Entrée, Main and Desert, plus 2 glasses of wine and coffee.... More

We stumbled upon this little place in the morning as we were exploring the area around our hotel. It look good, the menu look enticing and it was just secluded enough and suficciently away from the main street to be worth a consideration for dinner. This is not an easy thing to do because Metz is not a large city... More

Characterful, friendly, great meal, excellent service definitely worth a visit. Price was reasonable and out of the four in our party two courses were rated as excellent with the others very good. Alsace origins to the menu with a family heritage.
