The real Lyon... Deliciously Authentic

Great food, great ambiance. An authentic Bouchon Lyonnais. You get what you get and you don't get upset. We had a great time.

I had no idea about lyonnaise food, but was taken here when over on business and although not all the food would be to my personal taste the actual overall experience and ambience was really memorable and unique

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
