“touristic but stays authentic”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

On a rather cold evening in september we were looking for a restaurant in the main street of the old town of Briancon. We entered La Gavroce by chance. We found it to be o good shot. The service is very friendly and personnal. The menu is what should be expected with a nice savoyard touch.Parking is no problem at the place des Armes just outside the citywalls.

“Our first lunch in Briançon's Vauban city”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

After arriving too late in Briançon the night before, we were ready for a special lunch and were not disappointed by La Gavroche. I wanted to try Au Plaisir Ambre nearby, but they were closed. Hungry and tired, we were welcomed at La Gavroche by very nice waiter & waitresses and had some amazingly good set price meals. Service was very nice and prompt.

“Excellent service, felt really wellcome!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012 via mobile

Visited the restaurant in July,so the menu with fondues seemed not so appealing but....the cesar salad, the salmon and the meat plate were just delicious! The place was full, unlike many others in the same town, which also tells something. We had nice evening!

“Looks nice from the outside...”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

...but the minute you step inside, you might regret it.
I could start by talkig about their warm welcome and charming ways BUT, there was none of that.
We arrive at 12:30 only to find the staff having lunch. Nobody came to let us know if and when we could join in. When someone finally told us to have a seat, the food was jut not worth the wait.

“Great romantic atmosphere and fantastic fondue”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

The atmosphere is really very romantic, I strongly recommend it to loving couples.

The fondue is the best in briancon. The amount of cheese was so large, there was so much bread and delicious meats that we couldn't even finish our meal! Moreover, it's cheaper than in the nearby L'etage. And I am really surprised this place has such a low rating. Definetly underestimated.

The owners were very polite and nice even though we couldn't speak any French :)

10/10
