This was the second Michelin starred restaurant that we dined in during our visit of Colmar and it was clearly the best. Situated in a tiny side street it has a dining room with a modern sleek design. The welcome was professional though we were not completely delighted with the table close to the entrance because for the person, in this case my wife, that was sitting close to the wall space was a little cramped. On the up side it was evident that on this evening with a restaurant not very crowded the staff had the aim of spacing out customers as much as possible which made for plenty of privacy. The most important part was the food though and this was truly excellent. We debated whether to take the "petite galerie menu" @ 69€ or the "grand galerie" @85€ and in the end we were both delighted to have taken the larger option as it gave us two additonal superb dishes. The first two dishes of oeuf de poule with eel and the tranche de Foie Gras in a bouillon de crevette et crabe were perhaps my favourites but the other main dishes of sea bass, scallops, and the quail fillets were all excellent. Perhaps for my personal taste the combination of sea bass with oranges did not quite work for me but this is also a personal taste as my wife liked it a lot. The pre dessert and dessert were both very very nice. The amuse bouches were also beautiful, especially the deep fried cubes of boudin noir were very nice indeed. The ratio of price (236€ for two menus plus a glass of cremant and one of champange as well as 4 small glasses of wine and a tea) to quality was amazing and we enjoyed the meal a lot. The quality of the food was so high that I think that L'Atelier has the potential to reach a second star in the coming years if our experience here was representative. Highly recommended and certainly a restaurant that I would be delighted to return to.
