We had the "decouverte menu" for 30 euros (two courses plus dessert): a large choice and very good dishes but small portions and less creative than expected. I recommend the escargot risotto and the canard with mushroom sauce. Nothing special the "mousse au chocolat" and ice-creams ...

Our visit to the Briançon area was between their summer and winter seasons so many restaurants were closed for holidays. Le Gavroche was open so we decided to give it a try and we were happy with the experience. They offer a lot of choices but we opted for Raclette, an Alp dish with melted cheese, meats, potatoes and a... More

Walked around the historic quarter in Briancon looking for a nice restaurant. Le Gavroche seemed to be the perfect place. And a good choice it was. Excellent service, nice menu and a great atmosphere. Happy with our choice of the fondue bourguignonne, at a very reasonable price.

We were very impressed with this restaurant. The food was a very high quality. We had the menu for 30 euros, which was good value. Everything was delicious and the portions were very generous.

Food was ok and at good prices but the desserts were completely neglected: totally banal ice creams. Service was very welcoming and professional.

We loved this spot for dinner. The medieval lamb dish was a standout. We also had excellent steak. Desserts were wonderful, and the wine recommendations perfect. Our server could not have been nicer. All in all a wonderful experience in old town Briancon.

Best tables in rear of restaurant with aircon and quieter than at front. Great food at very reasonable prices. Thanks to Katie at Auberge de l'Impossible for this recommendation!

On a visit to Briancon - the old city) we needed lunch. The menu at Le Gavroche was varied and reasonably priced (€20 per head inc. drinks). The staff were friendly and helpful. My son-in-law recommends the beef burger - made with real meat. I had the profiteroles for desert - a plate full of chocolate and cream - excellent.

Wow what a fantastic lunch we had here today. I had a medieval style platter with beautiful tender slow cooked lamb, hubby had wild boar stew, & kids had really nice burgers with chips. Only comment is that the kids would have liked some lettuce or salad in their burgers. It is a lovely setting sitting outside and would recommend... More
