We were the only ones in the restaurant on a miserable Sunday night. Friendly welcome, followed by fantastic food & wine. The amuse bouche and a small bonus after dessert where the real icing on the cake. The three of all tasted each others courses. The couple who run the place chatted to us happily about their time in England,... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at this cosy and atmospheric restaurant in the old medieval town of Briancon. The young chef is talented, uses great fresh products and knows how to combine flavours. It was a pleasure to have such a high quality and gastronomique meal in Briancon. We had the 3 course meal which was value for money. Service... More

We visited here mid-late August, when it was towards the end of the season, but we are glad we booked because it was full. The food was wonderfully prepared and tasted amazing, but the only downfall was that we had to choose from 3 set menus of different prices with only 2 choices per course, which was limiting so it...

We recently dined at this restaurant and had a lovely evening, The food was wonderful, the service excellent and the head chef/owner (who came out to speak to us personally) was very friendly. Booked the table on the basis that this was the number 1 ranking restairant in Briancon and it certainly lived up to it.
