Are you looking for a good restaurant in Colmar? Good news, there are actually a lot!

To help you in making your choice, here is my selection of good addresses. I don’t know if they are the best restaurants in Colmar (it is in fact very subjective), but these are addresses I would recommend to friends asking for advice. 

I focused on French and Alsatian cuisine restaurants, because this is usually the type of food you would want to try when visiting Alsace. I haven’t yet listed starred restaurants, which are sort of “out of category”. 

For lovers of organic food and for vegetarians, have a look at my article about organic and vegetarian restaurants in Colmar

This list is not fixed and will evolve with my new findings… There is no order between the restaurants of the list.

La Table du Brocanteur (French food)


restaurant-colmar-table-brocanteur

La Table du Brocanteur is an excellent address in Colmar. You will taste there French food, exclusively made from fresh and seasonal products. Everything is home made! At the head of the restaurant is a very friendly couple: Marc is cooking and Isabelle is at the service.

As its name suggests, the restaurant has a lot of different objects from left to right, which gives it a very homey feeling. This restaurant is definitely one of my favorite!

Remember to book at least one week in advance, as la Table du Brocanteur has a lot of success. I tried to go spontaneously, but there was never any space!

I liked

  • Excellent cuisine and generous portions
  • Homey decorations with a lot of different objects
  • Small quiet terrace
  • Extremely friendly welcome and services
  • A glass of liquor is offered at the end of the meal

I liked a little less

  • Nothing!
I am often quite picky when it comes to fish, but theirs is excellent: fresh and cooked to perfection. It was delicious!

Practical information

My bill

48,50€ for a starter, a main course, a dessert and a glass of wine. Everything is à la carte. At lunch, there is a 15€ menu.

Wistub Brenner (Alsatian food)


bibalaskas-wistub-brenner-colmar

The first time I went to Wistub Brenner, I was 18 years old and it was the first time I was going to Alsace. Since then, I grew up, I live in Colmar and Wistub Brenner is a place where I bring my friends visiting Alsace, so they can taste good traditional Alsatian food. I was never disappointed!

You will be able to taste a good sauerkraut, bibalaskas, a tourte de la vallée or ham hock... numerous specialties from Alsace!

The philosophy of Daniel Queille is: "Buying the best from the best and cook simple, but good food". It really resonates with me!

 

 

I liked

  • Alsatian food with good products.
  • The location at the heart of Little Venice
  • The big rooftop in summer, the inside decoration
  • Warm service

I liked a little less

  • Nothing!
I love their Bibalaskas. On top of the traditional fromage blanc and fried potatoes, there is smoked ham and munster. It's simple, but delicious!

Practical information

My bill

28.40€ for a menu (starter, main course, dessert and coffee) / 24.20€ for a starter and a main / 22.40€ for the main and dessert. It is available every day, lunch and dinner with the possibility of choosing between all mains à la carte. I didn't take any wine.

La Cour des Anges (French food with vegetarian and vegan options + tartes flambées)


restaurant-vegetarien-colmar-cour-anges

La Cour des Anges is exactly the kind of restaurant that I love: located right in the centre of Colmar, but still a little bit hidden, with a beautifully decorated room and a pleasant terrace and where, of course, we eat very well!

A la carte, homemade dishes, favouring organic and local products (producers are also proudly mentioned on the menu) and fitting for every kind of diet. Whether you are vegetarian, vegan or carnivore, you will find in this restaurant just the right dish for you. I found the food there absolutely delicious!

Even if most dishes don't really fall into the "traditional Alsatian" category (which is also nice sometimes!), I recommend you to try the tartes flambées, with the homemade dough (it's usually rare!) and the good quality filling.

I liked

  • Homemade, organic and local
  • Delicious dishes and a bit different from the usual restaurants of Colmar
  • Perfect for all kinds of diets!

I liked a little less

  • The vegetarian tarte flambée is a bit bland

Practical information

My bill

From what I remember, prices for a main are between 15 and 20€, but I need to check the next time I go...!

Jadis et Gourmande (Alsatian food)


restaurant-colmar-jadis-gourmande

I have already told you about Jadis et Gourmande in my article about the best tea rooms in Colmar. It works as tea room in the afternoon, but Jadis et Gourmande is also a restaurant open for lunch.

The place is very welcoming, with a bric-a-brac decoration and teddy bears all over the place. You will feel confortable straight away!

Food-wise, Jadis et Gourmande offers many traditional dishes, but they are a bit more unique than sauerkraut and baeckeoffe, dishes that you can find everywhere. For example, you can try meat pie, fleischnakas, lawerknepfla... Most dishes have meat in them, but there are also a few vegetarian options on the menu. Everything is very tasty and served in generous portions. Don't forget to leave some space for dessert, because the pies are huge and wonderful (for me, they are the best in Colmar ) and the torche aux marrons is also delicious.

The only negative thing could be the sometimes curt welcome from the owner. However, usually the service is friendly. Remember to book in advance: it is always full even in low season!

I liked

  • Tasty and copious dishes
  • Varied Alsatian food
  • Warm atmosphere

I liked a little less

  • Sometimes curt welcome

Practical information

My bill

19,90€ for a main and a slice of pie.

Le Petit Bidon (French food)


restaurant-colmar-le-petit-bidon

The restaurant Le Petit Bidon is a very pleasant place to taste good French food, sometimes sprinkled with a few Alsatian touches. The menu is quite small and there are a few daily suggestions, which means that everything is fresh. Indeed, you can really feel it when tasting the delicious dishes! Many basic products are bought from local producers: cheese, vegetables or ice creams for example.

Decoration wise, all works very well with a very simple atmosphere and a few nice objects, such as big milk churns. Daily suggestions are actually written on one of these churns!

Moreover, the welcome and service are very friendly.

magret-oie-epicurien-restaurant-colmar

L'épicurien is a wine bistro located at the heart of the Little Venice in Colmar. On the menu, you will find food made with fresh products, rather French, but which also leaves space for other inspirations. The choice is very difficult and everything is tempting!

If you are looking for a good Japanese restaurant in Colmar or even in Alsace, I might have what you are looking for!

I have tried a lot of Japanese restaurants in France, but Le Soleil Levant is definitely one of the best ones. It's quite simple, I have never eaten before so delicious sushi.
