Both my wife and I had the lunch menu at JY's and both agree that it is one of the best meal we've had anywhere. We sat outside in a small section of tables lining the rear of the restaurant along the canal. Very peaceful and shaded and good people watching (for them and us) as the small tour skiffs... More

A must visit for dinner or drinks. Sits along the canal...scenic, great for warm evenings. Probably #1 spot in Colmar.

We had the tasting menu which offers some nice choices. Heavy on seafood. The plates were beautiful and tasty. Service was very friendly and helpful. The service for dessert was rushed, as it seemed everyone wanted to go home early. While this restaurant deserves Michelin stars, I thought Le Atelier du Peintre and Girardin were better. Just my opinion.

2 Michelin stars and good value for the quality of food/service. Some outstanding aspects, including two bonus dessert courses in the 'menu'. Exquisite locally sourced ingredients. Vies for attention with l'atelier, so try both if you get a chance.

We had the 3-course lunch menu, amazing food and such gracious service. We are 2 mums who had endured EuropaPark with our kids the previous day and really wanted to treat ourselves to a lovely meal. We were somewhat nervous about taking our two kids (aged 10) to JYS but it really couldn't have been better: the staff were so... More

The food was creative and delicious. the ambience lovely and the service attentive without being overbearing. Even my teenagers who are fussy about food were enchanted. Most of us had the 4 plate menu but 2 in the party swapped some of the dishes for an alternative without a fuss. This was our first meal at JYs but it will... More

Really had a wonderful meal here. All dishes were perfect, the wine list is terrific... we had a great burgundy and the crémant buecherer(?) both were great. I would recommend being smartly dressed but it's no problem if you are just smart casual. No need for men to feel they have to wear jacket / tie but not a good... More

I see that arrogance has no borders. Not only are you and your friend bad faith, but what most shocks me is your wickedness. You talk about discrimination against you and I accuse you of racism towards me.
