But oh my god were we happy we did! We got a very nice table without reservation but just walking in (VERY nice personnel to arrange this to... More

Let me say at the outset that JYS deserves it's Michelin rating. What's better is that if you go there for lunch you get what I consider an outstanding value. Clearly, the food and presentation are both superb. We received several "teasers" that showed the chef's creativity. The peach gazpacho appetizer was off the chart delicious. The mains were exceptionally... More

I booked a table at JYS during my trip to Colmar and went there for dinner. The presentation of all the plates was amazing. The colors, textures and compositions were surprising and the experience started in a very particular way as the finger food olives were served directly on the olive tree. As the starter I chose tartar which happened... More

This was a really good Choice for some great food and a very good Dinner Experience. The Staff was Excellent. The Food was Interesting and very good for the most part. We had the 4 Course Menu. The Desert was to much to eat for us. And we were a bit disappointed in the mains, but the rest made up... More

My wife and I found the food to be beautiful but not very flavorful. There is a lot of work that goes into the their food presentation. But I would have to say that we were slightly disappointed at the end of the evening. The atmosphere is contemporary, but a little fake. The service was fine, but a little too... More

This restaurant and its food was everything that we had hoped it would be, from the gifts from the chef to the various courses to the over-the-top dessert (wow!). This place wasn't cheap, but it was worth it for a special occasion.

Ended up in JY'S really by chance ... and what a excellent lunch that was! I fully agree with the other reviewer that this restaurant is a must when in Colmar. Tastefully decorated place with delicious food which we did not find that expensive.
