Recommended by the Grand Hotel Grenoble and booked by them. A fantastic family run restaurant in Grenoble. Very friendly and helpful staff, great local food and wine. Ask for the local cheese, its fantastic and you can find it in the airport if you are flying out. You will probably need to book as its not huge. Highly recommended.

We visited this restaurant in September 2014 during a business trip. Drinks and food were excellent. We both had a menu (at around 40EUR each) which was delicious. A variety of creative and traditional dishes to choose from. Good, friendly and fast service. Absolutely nothing to complain about.

This was a great restaurant. We didn't need to wait very long for the food. The waiters were very nice and the food was very good especially the meat and the fish. The salad was also good.The dessert were delicious .

Good, typically French restaurant. Not exceptional and not cheap, but good if you want to avoid any surprises.

Just tried the Le Lyonnais and enjoyed the atmosphere and the service. The house wine was decent and the appetizer - foie de gras with arthichoke and salad was excellent. The Toulouse sausage was unlike anything I ever tasted and would never want to have again, however. Not sure how it managed to find its way on the menu since... More

We are advised to try this restaurant by hotel staff during our business stay in Grenoble. We were a little bit surprised to find the restaurant empty at 8PM, but that had changed quickly and we were really glad to come quite soon :) Service was highly above common average (although it's always very good in France), it was quite...

We generally like the food at the restaurant. My husband and I both got the 39 euro set menu. Having lived in Switzerland for sometime, this is a really good value restaurant for us. For the starter, my husband got the fois gras with white wine sauce and pear, while I got a mushroom stuffed with fois gras (if I... More

A friend and I went for a fancy night out to treat ourselves, and we were SO very pleased with our choice! We each ordered the 29,50 menu which gets you a appetizer, entrée, and dessert. We were really impressed with the delicate pasta on the seafood ravioli starter and the sautéed escargot starter was just fantastic. I really enjoyed... More

Dishes presentation were fantastic, but taste... More
