We chose to eat at this restaurant on our one night in Strasbourg because of its setting in a cute rather buzzing street near the cathedral, and because of the regional specialities on the menu which we thought we should try.
We were shown to our table by an efficient (what we would think of as typically Germanic!) waitress and given the menus. However, when reading through the menu it all seemed to be pizza/pasta, and none of the regional food we'd read on the menu at the entrance. We queried this and the waitress explained that the restaurant we were in fact sitting in was Italian, and next door was French/Alsacian, but that it was all one company with two kitchens, so we were able to eat from both menus.
A couple of our party of 4 had wanted to try a tarte flambée because judging by all the other restaurants we'd glanced at before we sat down at this one, it seemed to be a local speciality. In the end all 4 of us chose the Menu Tarte Flambée which includes 1/2 a tarte for starter, a whole one for main, and half a sweet one for dessert, all dependent upon what the chef decides to put on top of them that day (most likely what's left in the fridge!). A tarte flambée is basically a very thin pizza base with cream, onion and lardons on top, and the first dish was this with added asparagus which worked really well. Main dish was exactly the same, however, minus the asparagus. Nice on its own, and very flavoursome, but rather an overkill when you've had more or less the same 15 minutes ago. Dessert was the standard pizza base and cream with a few slices of banana and a bit of chocolate sauce. It was average, but quite frankly by this point we were sick of tarte flambée!
In hindsight perhaps ordering this menu, not to mention 4 of them, probably wasn't the most sensible choice. That said, it's not as though we put together the menu ourselves, but rather it was offered by the restaurant, so I would have expected it to be a bit more diverse and imaginative.
Although I've given it a 3, 2.5 would have been more accurate if the choice was there. Would we go back there and try another dish? No, we'd try another restaurant, as it wasn't as if the other factors of the meal made up for the disappointment of the food.
