Following the advice of a couple of other reviewers we went to this restaurant on a sunday evening. I mention this because we started to get concerned as we made our way through the tiny alleys of The old Nimes as all the restaurants were closed on a Sunday. Much to the relief of our stomachs (which were just coming to terms with the fact that it looked as though it was going to be Maccas tonight) we found O2 La Bar open. We were not disappointed. We selected the E29 combination which started with a cocktail (we had an excellent Piña Colada) followed by an Entree, main meal, cheese plate and then dessert. There were 5 or 6 dishes to select from at each course and for the first we chose Foie Gras which we were advised was home made and which was simply divine. For the second we chose fillet mignon which came with gnocchi and a wonderful mushroom and red wine sauce. After the camembert, I had home made apple pie and cream and my wife had a delightful warm chocolate mousse cake and cream. We sent back clean plates after each of the courses. Amazing value for such fantastic food which coupled with the very friendly and helpful waiter and the wonderful alfresco atmosphere made for a very enjoyable evening. Highly recommended!!

My wife and I discovered O2 LA while heading back to our car after a morning walk around Nimes. We were first attracted to the tables outside under a canopy and trees on the Place Des Esclafidous. As we looked at the posted menu and the plaza, we were graciously welcomed. Yes, it was possible to get lunch and, yes, eating at a table on the plaza was encouraged. I've posted photos of our lunch plates, as it's hard to describe how pretty they were, served on slate "plates." I enjoyed a salad with slices of local ham. My wife had the salad of the day, which was topped with warm goat cheese wrapped in a small crepe.

Some hints on finding it: on Google Maps the picture of Place Des Esclafidous shows the same place with the name "Gargantua" on the awning. I think Gargantua has moved. Next time I'm there, I'll find out the details. Just look for Place Des Esclafidous and you'll find it.

When I searched for O2 LA on the internet, I found it listed as an "oxygen bar" and also as gay friendly. Maybe later at night the place starts to swing. I probably won't stay up late enough to find out the details of that. All I know is that we really enjoyed our luncheon salads.

When the manager at the Hotel Marquis de La Baume sent me around the corner to the
square for dinner, I never imagined what a wonderful meal I would have. The food was
excellent, the service was great. If I am not mistaken, a husband and wife team run this
restaurant, and she went out of her way to help me order ( I speak almost no French) and
made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Nimes.
