Mediterranean in Colmar

This canalside restaurant on the edge of Petite Venise is a winner, with its trad-meets-contemporary decor of exposed stone, clean-lined bistro furnishings and pops of electric blue. The succinct menu has a Mediterranean slant – a nod to the chef's native Italy – and is underscored by simplicity in dishes like line-caught pollock with spinach, nuts and Jerusalem artichoke.
