We have visited La Petite Affaire several times and we were never disappointed. The Flammkuchen is a must to try, yummy! The restaurant is attended by its owners, which always makes a difference and they do speak German, French and English, which is really nice. The menu is only in German language but they are always explaining what is what... More

Very friendly staff. Small menu but local and seasonal. The menu offered some fancier options and some basic dishes. Everything was well presented, prepared and seasoned to perfection. It's more of a bar than restaurant, completely unpretentious and genuine.

The food is definitely French as is Houda, the wife of the Bistro owner. Mark, the owner speaks perfect English and is very accommodating.... More

None of the reviews give a proper flavour of this place. Which is more of a dive than a restaurant, but a dive with lovely staff and a short but tasty menu (on the basis of one dish!). It's a bar-café, not a restaurant, and the staff were very helpful to this non-German speaking Brit, needed because the chalkboard menu... More
