Many cheap kebab shops. Typical restaurant: Zum Sauwadala, 13 rue de l'Arsenal, friendly atmosphere, very good typical meals and drinks Il Cortile, rue des Franciscains: very good Italian restaurant (not a pizzeria!), but rather expensive



Stay safe

Mulhouse is generally safe twenty-four hours a day and quiet at night, but people unfamiliar with the area would do well to steer clear of areas like Bourtzwiller (north of the A36) and Les Coteaux (at the west end of tram line 2). Beggars can be a nuisance, but you don't have to give them anything; they won't harm you. In the unlikely event that you should find yourself in trouble, call 112 free from any payphone or from your mobile.
