This is a small restaurant in the restaurant de quartier-style (neighbourhood restaurant) that can be so sympathique. Rickety wooden chairs, a big zinc bar counter, friendly service – there you go. For lunch they have two three course formulas at 12€ and 21 € and in the evening a more elaborate menu but one that changes all the time. The cuisine is a bit modern without going to excesses – one could call it imaginative.
The wine list has a focus on organic wines with even a tendency toward “natural”. Some 15 wines by the glass and around a hundred in bottle. The restaurant is also a wine shop so you can take any wine you like with you home.
Le Verre de Terres is located just a stone’s throw outside the city centre, which often, as here, means better quality at lower prices and better service. And just a very short walk from La Petite Venise and the hotel where we usually stay in Colmar.
