“Food too heavy and service inadequate”
Reviewed November 3, 2010

This was a disappointment. Although we had reserved ahead, the table (before we moved) was stuck in a corner by the door. I ordered a 2005 wine, but the waiter did not tell me that he changed this to a 2007 wine from a co-operative rather than the producer I had chosen. When I pointed this out, he said that the bottle I had chosen was not available. However, I should not have to be the one to spot this. He charged the same price for this bottle even though I asked him to double-check that this could possibly be right. The food was traditional but very heavy indeed - the snails were average, munster on toast nothing special and the main courses were just very heavy. For around the same price we ate at Aux Trois Poissons for a much better dining experience. For traditional cuisine, the Winstub Brenner was much superior.

“Typical Winstub with traditional local dishes”
Reviewed May 16, 2010

Winstub Flory is centrally located, the walls of the restaurant are decorated with funny but fitting wall paintings. The service was quick and with a good sense of humour. You will find all the classics of the Alsatian cuisine. Huge plates and well prepared. The prices are adequate, but the price indication on Tripadvisor is wrong, for a three-course meal you should calculate with around EUR 30 (USD 40).

“Not a $ restaurant, our most expensive meal so far...”
Reviewed February 9, 2010

We followed the ratings on TripAdvisor and went to the Flory for a nice meal, within our budgetary constraints. It was a cute little restaurant in an old building in the old city, however it was not the $ category rated in TripAdvisor. We ordered the escargot (very good) and without realizing it ended up with two very similar plates of fish, excellent but huge! Don't be afraid to share a plate!

“Good Hearty Alsacien Food”
Reviewed December 27, 2009

We ate here at lunch time. This is an old fashioned atmospheric Weinstub. All the food was great well cooked harty Alsacien fare. Menue of the day was a tasty country pate and salad, main was a chicken led with reisling sauce and pasta and a chocolate desert. My wife had a massive pot of noodles and frites. Two glasses of cremant half a litre of house wine two expressos for about 40 euros. We often eat here when we come to Colmar and are never disappointed. Certainly a lunch time this place gets very busy so make a reservation or come early.

“Great value, excellent service”
Reviewed October 22, 2009

We were welcomed by a cheerful waitress and chose moules marinieres and moules a la creme with frites which were suggestions on the blackboard. We could see them being prepared through a hatch to the kitchen. The portions of mussels were huge - probably twice as much as we have been served anywhere else - and when my wife finished her french fries she was offered more. The food was not just plentiful but well prepared and the waitress continued to be cheerful and attentive, bringing more bread without being asked. The bill, including a large and a small draught beer and mineral water, was 40 euros.
The restaurant was open Monday night when most others were shut.
