We went for dinner here and ordered from the Prix Fixe Menu. All the dishes were excellent. The dishes were quite hearty and tasty. The cheese selection on cheese plate was really good. We got to taste some really good and different variety of cheese. The red wine soup with egg was really good. The service was excellent and very... More

This is a must visit for any foodie in Lyon. We had some of the most delicious and richest food that we've ever eaten here, everything was completely divine. The house wine (in a pot) was excellent, the service friendly and relaxed and the cheese platter was out of this world! Highly recommend, and try the calves head - it's... More

A small restaurant where the time seems to be stopped about 40 or more years ago. Very traditional food and atmosphere. Also very good wine that fits well with the food.

It was a fabulous dinner we had there. 8-course meal (5 appetizers, 1 main, cheese and dessert) at €27. The food is very flavourful and the bouchon bustling with people. They have an English menu and was able to take care of my food allergies. We were so full after the dinner! A must try in Lyon!!!

Do not ask for the menu, they'll voice it, once you are settled at the table. This 'bouchon' offered us lentils in mayonnaise with onions, some snack made of pork (very tasty btw), some veggies and then the main course that you choose - either meat or chicken or smth else. All tasty, all traditional, all home made. The only... More

Genuine, superb value, great traditional Lyonnais food, fun. Excellent service and vg wines for the price. One of the few remaining authentic bouchons in Lyon that has kept to its roots. Book - it is usually very crowded.

In short: if you choose to eat only in one Bouchon during your stay in Lyon, Le Cafe des Federations should be the chosen one! Their Generosity is amazing - you get 5 huge plats with a good Lyonnaise food for the price of 27 Euro! (check their dinner "menu classique"). For the first course you don't even have to... More
