This restaurant is a true gem. It is definitely one of the top 5 restaurants in Colmar. The white washed walls and beams and white stonework is elegant and understated. The room has only about a dozen tables and all are adorned with white tablecloths and candlelit. It feels casually sophisticated. You walk in and think......perfect!
Now to the best part the food, flawless. There were about 5 starters and 6 main courses you could chose from on the particular night we dined. I believe that their menu is seasonal and changes quite frequently. The portions are on the larger side. I had the scallop appetizer, 3 large, perfectly seared scallops on a bed of fennel salad. My husband had the duck salad he loved.....both salads less than $10 euros! He had a perfectly grilled steak as his main and I had the braised monkfish osso bucco style, best fish dish I had on my trip. There was not a main dish that cost more than $22 euros........excellent value, best price to value restaurant on our entire trip. They also were serving an amazing looking lamb shank. Dessert fantastic as well.
Their wine list is incredible, the delicious local Riesling was the best by the glass Riesling I had in Alsace and was only $3 a glass. They had an amazing 06 French wine available by 1/2 litre. Total cost of dinner was less than $100 euros........3 glasses white, beer, 1/2 litre red, 2 appetizers, 2 mains, dessert.
I would say this restaurant is among the best in Colmar alongside 3 others we dined at, the much more pricey Jy's and L'Atelier du Peintre. Restaurant du Marche would be my 4th choice spot, go you won't be disappointed, make sure to have a reservation.
