What brought us into this restaurant was the pretty courtyard at the end of a small alley. We stumbled upon it while busy taking pictures of the flower pots, the wooden ladder with tea lights and the lantern. Surprised to find that there was a restaurant behind this courtyard we had a peek and immediately fell in love with it.... More

Delightful food, delightful staff, delightful place and courtyard. You have to be sure that you book in advance to get a place to have dinner there but that's the only "inconvenience". Once you are there the waiters show you the blackboards with the menu and the suggestions of the chef and the show begins! Every dish is amazing (lamb is... More

Booked on line and received email acknowledgement from restaurant. Sadly we arrived and they had no record of our reservation, luckily we had copy of their email. They kindly found us a table close to door to garden, very chilly spot. Food was good, both enjoyed our meals but bit pretentious for us.

A perfect evening in the Elzas; Colmar is a surprise and l'Arpege fits right into it. The food and wine are really great. Staff is very friendly and the location nice and quit.

We were 3 young families, each with a little baby. This restaurant is very central, right in the heart of pulsing center of Colmar. We booked a table outside, in a lovely patio with a lot of herbs. The staff was superhelpful, trying to protect us from thunderstorm, taking care even about our baby-prams. Drinks and food was very good,... More

The restaurant what I expected, cosy nice and friendly. The food was very good which is what I expected from reading the other reviews. Service was good although we had a bit of a language struggle because no one spoke french,one waiter did speak a little english so we worked out everything. Payment cannot be made with Sfr. or dollars... More

My husband and I reserved lunch at l'Arpege since the dinners were fully booked while we were visiting Colmar. We were a bit disappointed that there weren't any available outside tables in the lovely patio area, but the interior of the restaurant was acceptable. The food was very good. The waitstaff was courteous and helpful, but I would have liked... More

Lovely intimate restaurant . Great secret garden at the back as you go through. Food wonderful. All in season food. The owner is a lovely guy. Always busy. Book ahead. We go every time we pass through on our way to Italy. Very special place.

The service is exceptional, we were sitting outside it is just stunning, the food is spectacular. I was there with my sister and cousin. We all agree that it was the best restaurant we have been in Colmar and we are definitely coming back.

Thank Cin S
