Born from a love at first sight gustatory and in love, Animus (the soul in Latin) is an invitation to discover the alliance between the flavors of the terroir and Italian gastronomy. In a chic and cosy setting, shaped by them, Chef Andrea Martin and his wife Julie welcome you to this unique place that will delight your pupils and taste buds with a bistronomic and creative menu.

Sta al cuoco farla diverntare Arte.
Cooking is a science
but it is up to the cook to make it become art...

Inspired by his Italian roots, Chef Andrea Martin offers creative cuisine with accents of the terroir, symbol of the union between the peninsula and Alsace.
The wine list, in perpetual evolution, gave pride of place to the winegrowers of the region (exclusively organic) and makes you discover the nectars of the most beautiful vineyards Italians.



Passionate about the world of gastronomy since his childhood, Chef Andrea Martin is a chef with a career studded with stars.
As a former firefighter, nothing predestined Andrea to find herself behind the stove. Injured during an intervention, he enrolled at the Alma International Cooking School in Parma from where he came out of age from his class.
He went to train with the biggest names in gastronomy: Massimo Bottura*** at L'Osteria Francescana in Modena and Jean-Luc Brendel* at D'Brendel Stub and La Table du Gourmet in Riquewhir.
It was there that he met Julie, from a family of hoteliers, daughter of Fabienne Brendel and niece of Chef Jean-Luc Brendel*. From this union, a little boy, Luca, will be born.
Second to chef Jean-Jacques Klein at La Table de Mittelwhir in Mittelwhir, he took over the reins of the kitchens of the Wistub du Sommelier in Bergheim in 2017, where he will perpetuate for more than a year the memory of Chef Patrick Schneider.
