Le Manala, Alsatian restaurant in Riquewihr
Generous cooking for a restaurant in the heart of Alsace in Riquewihr
Le Manala is located in the centre of Riquewihr and welcomes all food-lovers (whether or not you are staying at the hotel). Reservations are strongly recommended.
In our Alsatian dialect, a Manala is a little boy. It is also the name of a brioche shaped like a man that good children are given on St Nicholas’ day, the 6th of December.
Our Chef, Didier, cooks hearty, traditional dishes from the Alsace region. Simple and delicious food made from seasonal ingredients and Didier’s inspired cooking.
Don’t forget to try “choucroute verte ou Riquewihrienne”. This version of sauerkraut was created in 1996 by several chefs in the town and is Riquewihr’s very own local speciality. It owes its colour and unique flavour to the herbs used. Cabbage is cooked in a cream sauce made with ten fresh herbs. It is served with smoked duck and goose sausages and a white sausage with pistachios. As its name suggests, this dish is only cooked in Riquewihr.
With its vintage objects, warm-coloured walls and furniture, the restaurant of the Hotel Saint-Nicolas located in Riquewihr in Alsace is decorated in a traditional and welcoming style, just like its food.
The waiting staff are friendly and will do all they can to ensure you have a pleasant and convivial meal.
