With a friend I had dinner in the Restaurant Couronne d'Or. From Basel, I love to cross the border to the Alsace and France, this makes me feel like being on holidays. The Couronne d'Or is one of the few restaurants open on Sundays, and we loved it. An old French-style cosy room for the guests, but well renovated, very friendly staff the manager being young, congratulations for your courage to take over this place and do it so well; then the mixture of French, French with an Alsacian accent and Alemannic - similar to my Swiss dialect , a hand written menu card you feel the care - my friend says, it has been the same hand-writing for years , menus that are rare in Switzerland I selected tripes in a beer sauce and dandelion salad called pissenlit in French - but the choice was difficult, many more enticing dishes on the menu , and I had a dry Muscat wine in the Alsacian wine glass with the green foot so pretty, only used for Alsacian white wines.
No wonder. Make sure you reserve a table before driving to Leymen to eat at the Couronne d'Or. It is worth it, it deserves to be called not just "Couronne" crown , but "Couronne d'Or" gold crown. To add "a little more about it" - the restaurant serves French food, which is the best European food. Parking: This is France, there are enough parking places across the street.
Bar: Not sure, they have small garden tables in front, a small room to have just drinks, when entering, hence you can use the restaurant as a bar only, but it would be a pity to miss the meals. Good for children: Children are welcome in restaurants in France, even dogs are allowed in there was a big black dog sleeping quietly nearby. Dogs and children are all well behaved and they simply are part of a normal life in France - everywhere, also in restaurants. This restaurant has maintained its high standards for several years and is always a pleasure to visit.
It's good for special occasions and for groups, with food that is well cooked, espocially the rack of lamb, and service that is occasionally rather abrupt, but nevertheless always efficient.
