This rather humble restaurant listed as a bib gourmet is an incredible find. The couple offer incredible service, amazing food that is tastefully plated. It's the best place we've come across and actually has real napkins, impeccable service, great wine list and tasteful decor (most of the old town restaurants still have their xmas decorations up 🙄) very well priced...

Went here with 13yr old son. We were rather hurried along to make choices from the small menu - a fixed evening menu at 32E or a la carte dishes around 29-35E only about 3-4 dishes. The food was amazing

I have to say - thank God there is a place in Briançon now which serves something different! Something else than the usual fondue/raclette/crêpes. It was about time! The food was very good, the owners very nice - and fun to chat with! - and it is a small place so it doesn't get too crowded and noisy, which is... More

We had a wonderful lunch in this thoughtfully decorated restaurant - the ambience is intimate and not overbearing. If you don't want to trouble yourself too much with the menu , you could choose from 2 very reasonably priced set menu offered. Which was what we did. From the mushroom appetisers to first course of mackerel and scallops with carrot... More

An exceptional restaurant - the perfect place to wine and dine. Both the cuisine and service are superb, for those adults looking for that something extra - you will not be disappointed here. Ideal for a romantic evening or the true gastronome.

We own a catered chalet company in the area where we have one night off a week. This is the only place we recommend our clients to come. The standard is that of a Michelin star at a great affordable price. It is our favorite restaurant in Serre Chevalier and every time we dine there we are blown away with... More

An innovative menu with some interesting modern touches given to more traditional ingredients. Set menu with choices on the number of courses. We arrived early and were lucky to get a table, by about 9pm the restaurant was full. The place seems to be run by a husband and wife team and so service can be a bit slow but... More

I came to this restaurant four years ago and have been hoping to return but it has been full every time we've been back. The food was just as good as I remembered. The menu is simple with three set menus at different prices ranging from 22 to 46 euros. I went for the cheapest as I really fancied the... More

Once I walked in with my grandson, the lady said "we don't have a children's menu". I responded "he is not a child, he is my grandson" (however he is only six and a half!) But then, my grandson wanted a special entre: cannelloni (with snales) .... and they where delicious and he loved it. After that, the lady of... More
