Really a great experience! My wife and I had dinner at La Girole to celebrate her birthday (It was a Thursday evening and the restaurant was very quiet) we really enjoyed our meal especially the mise en bouche: a courgette cappuccino with hazelnut whipped cream.

I enjoyed a business meal here and we had the restaurant to ourselves at first which made for a relaxed atmosphere. The staff were friendly and professional and although the food was of a good standard I did not find my dishes (langoustines starter and rascasse poelé) to be outstanding despite the €42 price. Nevertheless I think this restaurant is... More

As the name suggests the restaurant is specialized in mushrooms and other local treats including lovely wine list. Mezzanine setup, looks ok and not very formal. Lovely service.

This was actually second on our list of placs to try, because the first restaurant we had chosen in the same area was all reserved. Giroles had one table for 4 left and we took it. Memorable meal from start to finish; I had the smoked-grilled beef with gratin dauphinois the local specialty), my colleagues had the St-Jacques; all of... More

a pretty nice place to celebrate a special occasion. not particularly inventive or original, all about good, classic French dishes.

We went to La Girole for our third wedding anniversary... It was a lovely evening with amazing food, excellent wine and the most gracious hostess.

La Girole has provided my best meal in Grenoble, really delightful regional food with attentive service. Sitting at the front of the restaurant with its double height ceiling and picasso-esque artwork, we went a la carte choosing from the daily specials and the regular menu. An excellent moules marinieres amuse-bouche kicked things off nicely, followed in my case with marinated... More

For me, an excellent restaurant has to surprise me with a new or unexpected taste. This one did and not only me. I went with 5 colleagues and we agreed that the meals were fantastic. I highly recommend the Filet Saint Pierre Meuniere.
