We were totally blown away by everything about this restaurant, surpassing all of our expectations for a small village restaurant in Alsace. They deserve their Michelin star. The food was creative, and very local. The service was superb and very genuine. The som was very informative. We went with the 7 course menu with wine tasting. Really fun. We met the chef and owner at the end of the meal. A local boy back to his home town. Super nice guy who loves his work and his roots. Worth the short trip out of town. Make a reservation. They fill up fast.

L'Alchemille is a 1 star Michelin restaurant located in the Alsatian village of Kaysersberg.

The menu here is a surprise, you just get to choose between 5, 7 or 9 course. The chef will gives what what he wants, what's fresh that time in his garden, and what he feels like cooking. I like the element of surprise so it wasn't an issue. Before you're asked if there are any ingredients you don't eat, or if you have any allergies,

Service is good, not so much fluent in English but in a way or another you get to communicate. Wine list is good and includes wines for everyone's budget, somellier is more towards selling expensive wines, but he knows his job.

Dinner kicked off with a bottle of Cremant,a nicely presented amouse bouche and fresh bread, It then followed with a variety of dishes which included potato mousse, beef tomato with basil snow. deer tartare, salmon, mustard zabaion, pigeon leg, munster and 2 desserts. The star of the night was the beef tomato with herbs and basil snow, followed by the pigeon with glazed peas, carrot puree and pigeon juice. To finish off we were given some petit fours, not bad but it can be improved.

We later had a chat with chef Jerome Jaegle who surely has a passion for what he does, and no wonder he was awarded a Michelin star, his creativity on a daily basis is something few can do and maintain such a standard.

Total came to around €130 including mid priced wine, 9 course is reasonably priced at €78.

If you're in the area, it's a place you'd love to visit. I'll be back.

We came back to this new restaurant after a year. A nice, modern decorated place, not too well located outside the beautiful small town of Kayserberg at one of the main entry roads. However, the food is of top quality and quite innovative. We had a three course dinner, reasonably priced. After nice amuses bouches we had as a starter a stunningly original and beautifully tasting tomates confites with meat carpaccio. Very very good. The main dish veal was excellent an very well presented. Quite a refreshing dessert with a very good tasting cumcumber sorbet. A great dinner. Light and refreshing. We will be back.

For a wonderful dining experience do not go past L'alchemille in Kaysersberg, Alsace. Our group of seven chose the Menu Emotion -five courses of sophisticated, delicious food. The complementary apertisers gave a hint of what was to come. A light potato mouse was served first followed by trout and veal both of which were remarkably good. The pre-dessert was light and I would have been happy to have this dish as the final course of the dinner. The main dessert, while exquisite, was not to my taste - a very rich chocolate log with a selection of accompaniments. My fellow diners loved this dish. Knowing that we were eating local produce added to our enjoyment.
We ordered wines both white and red as suggested by the sommelier and were more than happy with both.
Sophisticate and innovative cooking, eautifully presented, delicious and not pretentious in any way, this dining experience will be long remembered.
The five course Menu Emotion is great value for money and while the portions are smaller than one might expect, remember you will be eating seven servings including the appetisers and pre dessert.

We were given a recommendation to this restaurant by a local vigneron, and otherwise would not have gone in, as it looks very modern from the street. As it was lunchtime we chose the menu "retour du marché" at 24 euro for 3 courses, and a forfait drinks for 13 euro which comprised 1 glass wine, water and coffee. The service was impeccable, and the various dishes and amuse-gueles arrived with perfect timing. My only complaint was the very small portion quantity. Every mouthful was perfect, but there weren't many of them! I also think that their wine price is rather excessive at 8 euro for a glass of muscat for example, in an area of Alsace which is awash with quality wine. However we will certainly return to try more of this very good and innovative cuisine.
