Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The bar offers a wide range of Alsatian wines, and many from other French regions, but none from other countries. The more expensive wines are available in 60 ml servings for half the price of a normal 120 ml glass. They use an argon pressure...system to dispense wine, so the bottles are never opened. If you want, after pouring they can leave the bottle at your table for you to inspect at leisure until you order a new glass or someone else orders the same wine. Waiters are very knowledgeable and helpful, though busy at peak times. Our cheese platter included Tome de Vache, St. Nectaire, and Cantal, among others. Reservations are not required but recommended, as it may be hard to get seats at busy times. On both our visits, there was a congenial atmosphere, and we enjoyed socializing with the customers around us.More

The cercle des aromes was an ideal start for a few days in colmar. We didn’t know a lot about the wines of Alsace so it was great to try the different grape varieties, the difference between the grand crus and standard offerings and to...determine our preferences. Unfortunately none of the wines we tasted were really to our taste so a little disappointing that we didn’t find new friends. The accompanying cheese and charcuterie plates were tasty and fair value. The wines were 7&8 euros for 120ml so no bargains but not excessive either. The staff were incredibly busy so service felt a little transactional.More

This is a place for cheese, meats and wine, rather than a full meal. However, the cheese and meat platters were very good and the range of wine is very wide (and reasonably priced given the quality).

Absolutely cannot recommend highly enough. The food selection is excellent, convivial plates to share with others. The wine selection and the knowledge from the staff of those wines - simply wonderful. We booked in advance (very easy, via email), which I would recommend to avoid...disappointment. The service was fantastic and the staff were so friendly. I wish we’d booked for both days we were in Colmar.More

Great place to stop off and have a glass of wine with a small cheese and meat dish. There are so many wines to choose from, but no worries you are in good hands with the staff. They know their wines and are willing to...help. Since they use a corvin, it provides the option of have many wines to choose from - over 200. Menu is a lite tapas place.More
