“Dissapointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

We booked this restaurant because of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Briancon has a vast selection of traditional tourist restaurants so a more contemporary restaurant seemed attractive. Nevertheless the experience was rather disappointing.

In terms of food, each dish has 3 or 4 different preparations or variations, resulting in messy presentations. Our salmon was overcooked, scallops did not seem fresh etc.

All in all it was quite a disappointment. The focus of the waitress was mainly on the locals and regular guests. We were soon forgotten. After dessert it took at least 20 minutes before we could attract attention and could ask for the bill.

“Unique innovative restaurant with an amazing menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2012

O'2L has got a really interesting and innovative menu that changes with the seasons and everything is brilliantly cooked and presented. It's a unique experience in the Serre Chevalier valley that's well worth a visit. Excellent value and service too.

“Fantastic modern cuisine, a breath of fresh air among Briancon's mainly traditional restaurants.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2012

This little restaurant, almost next to the Tourist Office inside the Old Town of Briancon, offers inventive modern cuisine at very good prices. Just 2 cutting's from their latest menu gives you an idea of what you can expect:
As a starter, "Tarte fin de legumes de saison et saumon delicatement fume tuile de limmonade et creme legere citronnee" and as a dessert, "Pour rugir de plaisir, l'esprit du Lion tout chocolate et sa glace aux rochers suchard".
For main courses they offered Magret de Canard, Lotte and Cote de Veau rotie.
The name of the restaurant can be translated as "Chez 2 Ladies" and it's fantastic what these 2 Ladies have managed to create.
And if you don't understand French, don't let that stop you going here, because you should simply let yourself in the mercy of these 2 Ladies, and take it as a surprise menu.
