Schwendi is somewhat of a tourist trap: it's more like a factory than a real restaurant. It's noisy, there is an entrance and a seperate exit door, there are strict rules for paying at the table instead of at the registry and you're seated very close to one another. Mind you: the serice is speedy and the food was very... More

The restaurant is part of a hotel but also open for other guests. It is a typical alsace style restaurant with dishes mainly coming out of the area. The meals are high quality and the wine card is excellent but predominantly showing local white wines. It is highly recommended to ask for a reservation as the restaurant is very popular.

Our group of 10 people had dinner at Schwendi. I had previously had dinner here two years ago and the service as well as food were excellent on both occasions. The dinner hall is in the basement, but it is light, nice decoration, plenty of space and food (local cuisine) is excellent. Price - quality ratio is fantastic.

Excellent, just excellent! It's worth a detour, anytime! Just pick anything from the menu and you will enjoy.

and we enjoyed our meal immensely. We travel with our two dogs and my wife is always anxious about whether or not a restaurant is truly dog-friendly but there was no problem. Good menu with prix fixee options and an excellent, if slightly pricey, wine list. Would cheerfully revisit

Worth a visit even if you aren't been lucky (smart) to stay in the hotel. Easy parking at the small square, where there's an atmospheric terrace, or a lovely dining room downstairs. Very popular, best to book a table for dinner.

We had many fine meals during our drive along the gorgeous wine route. By far the best value for money was Schwendi. This family run hotel-restaurant delivers excellent, inventive food at reasonable prices. We had lunch and dinner here during our 3 day stay in Kientsheim and both meals exceeded our expectations.

Delicious food in a beautifully picturesque setting, outside, in the town "square". The tarte a'loignon was particularly good. Friendly and efficient service, too.

seemed like just more of the same "local" cuisine, which I like, but was just looking for something with a little more pizazz.

Hazelnut crusted scallops. Peche ravioli. Baked John Dory. I've enjoyed every meal. I love this hotel and have enjoyed the meals. The best pinot gris I've ever tasted in my life.
