We arrived in Selestat after a long train journey from the south of France and were almost too tired to eat. However, friends who live in Barr insisted on taking us to L'Abbaye de la Pomeraie, and what a delight it was. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, we were treated with such special care and all our needs were attended to without fuss. The meal was spectacular, authentic of the region, well cooked, presented and served with professionalism. It was not overpowering but rather a step back to yesteryear, elegant with a relaxing ambiance and our table looked out into the garden. It was the perfect start to our week in Selestat having coming there from Australia to visit friends.

Driving through an extended torrential downpour one August Saturday from the Black Forest to Colmar, we were unable to reach this restaurant by phone and so just showed up in the hope it would be open and ... it was! The Inn is beautifully set in a walled garden off the main street of the town. The restaurant has floor to ceiling windows into the garden. We were warmly welcomed with really gracious service from the family who own and operate the place. Tables in the restaurant are far enough apart for privacy, yet it's intimate. We had superbly fresh salad and a duck foie gras to begin, followed by beautifully prepared and presented fish.The wine list is extensive, with many Alsace specials. Finally, we were shown to the 'parlour' for espresso and eau de vie. We'd return anytime.

This is a great restaurant in the grand French tradition, but with a slight Italian twist thanks to the owner's nationality, which also gives the restaurant a warmer feel and friendly service - unlike that of some similar establishments where you can feel that they are doing you a favour by serving you anything at all. The dishes are exquisite, displaying classical haute cuisine techniques but with innovative flavours. My husband declared his salmon tartare the best he had ever tasted. The portions are a perfect size, giving you enough to really analyse the different subtle flavours, but leaving you wanting just a little more. Which means that by the end of the meal you still have room for some cheese and dessert - and trust me, you definitely want to try those desserts! And then you get up from the table feeling like you've had a wonderful, memorable meal, but not like you're going to have to spend the next 10 days eating a lettuce leaf per day to expiate your sins. Really worth going to.

the restaurant is beautiful, the owner is very friendly,eventhough we found it a bit expensive, my son had a tagliattele (kids portion) and they charged us a crazy amount of money for that! But is a MUST if you are around Selestat.

A restaurant in the best French way, impeccable service, a fine atmosphere in the gourmant restaurant. The chef has his trick with peas reducing them to a sublime foamy mash. The head waitress is something to see, she is an artist at her work with a boyish look, made us feel important and easy at the same time
