Fodor's Expert Review L'Ami Fritz

8 rue des Châteaux, Ottrott, Grand-Est, 67530, France Fodor's Choice

A few miles west of Obernai, this white-shuttered, flower-bedecked, 18th-century house treats diners to fine meals and accommodates overnight guests in impeccable rooms with sleek contemporary furnishings (opt for one in the main building, not the annex). Hotel amenities include a sauna and heated outdoor pool. The restaurant (reservations essential; closed to nonguests Wednesday) is one of the region's top attractions. Here you can savor Patrick Fritz's sophisticated twists on regional specialties, including a delicate choucroute with fresh and smoked fish in beurre blanc. Don't miss the fruity red wine, an Ottrott exclusive.
