the lunch 3-course meal at Jys is phenomenal, and the value is hard to beat. great atmosphere, combining a modern yet classic ambience. a great experience for both the palate and the eyes: the food just looks beatiful! Simply the best gastronomic experience in Alsace.

It was nice to try a Michelin star restaurant but I wouldn't go back there again. I did have great wine selections. And I like the specialized amuse-bouche and other little extras. However, my main dish which was scallops with noodles was very salty. And I really like salt. I did get the langoustines and that was very good.

We had high hopes of a 2 star Michelin restaurant in a region that is blessed with many. We were received with a luke warm welcome and shown to a table where we were presented with what I can only describe as a type of Yorkshire pudding as 'bread'. It had an unpleasant burnt greasy taste. This was followed by... More

We reserved a table for dinner some while in advance. The restaurant is in the heart of La Petite Venise area of Colmar which is exceptionally pretty. We received a very warm welcome on arrival and were immediately shown to our table on the first floor. Intimate and cosy dining room with a gentle buzz. We chose the 7 course... More

Location is in Petite Venice portion of Colmar. Outside patio is able to seat around 30 people. You sit next to the small canal and is a very nice setting. Inside is rather modern and without a/c so a bit too warm in summer. While currently holding a Michelin two star rating, we would give it a weak one star.... More
