We spent five nights in Strasbourg and ate here twice.
Gayot is a square, tucked behind the Cathedral, off one of the many windy little streets in that area. We were lucky enough to stumble upon it on one of our walks, but it would be very easy to miss.
It seems to attract a good many locals to the four or five restaurants in the square, and seems mostly devoid of tourists. We had walked through this square during the day and read a positive review of a different restaurant (La Table du Gayot), but were not able to get a table there without a reservation. Le Bistrot was right next to it, and the atmosphere looked just as welcoming, and we were able to sit down immediately both nights. It had a young, casual staff, even in the kitchen (which we were able to see from our table), almost like a group of friends ran the restaurant together. They also seemed to know most of the customers personally.
One thing we liked about the restaurant is that there was not one bad table.
Both nights we had a local Riesling that we enjoyed. I was tempted by the steak tartare, but decided against it.
My wife had the same meal both nights, a burger served with frites and a delicious salad (all the dishes at the restaurant seemed to include the same salad).
I had two different versions of beef, both very good.
The second night we had a mozzarella and tomato appetizer that was as amazing as it looks in this picture.
The desserts were also delicious: Chocolate Molten Cake; Waffles with Chocolate Sauce; Creme Brulee.
