Really nice 'suggestion du chef'

We came to Lyon for one night, and found a place in this cute restaurant. It's a little outside the center, but what you get in return is a nice evening with good food, wine, and the company of locals. I went for the suggestion of the chef, which was a home made ravioli of aspergus, followed by... read more

There was the Waitress with no patience for clarifying any items of the menu that we couldn't understand. Requested a medium steak and it came out having barely touched the grill. The salmon was the same as well, maybe it's the French way of cooking? We were the only table not offered any table water and got our bread with... More

Nice meal, friendly attentive staff. We all had a lovely dinner last night. The summer menu amd gourmand menu can both be recommended.

The chateau-briande with morels was delicious as was the truffle ravioli. Despite the place being small, since we were early they squeezed us in without a booking. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

I really enjoyed this restaurant. Had a really nice beef carpaccio, good steak, and above average wine for a reasonable price.

I visit Lyon at least once a year and alway go to Le Petit Carron at least once at every stay. It is really very good and with a good athmosphere....I will continue to go there.

Went there with colleagues for a dinner. The restaurant itself was pretty little but cozy. Nice people and a nice setting. I just had a Chateaubriand (medium-rare). One of the best I've had in ages! I should definitely go back to have another one when in the neighborhood. The desserts are a most order as well. Can't go wrong in... More

We were stumbling around Lyon centre hoping for a good feed with minimal stress. Considering the horrific gastronomic and cultural nightmare Lyon has been, we were really after something honest, good and relaxed. So, stumble stumble stumble, we decided to try our luck at le petit carron. Asked for a table and as luck would have it, they had tables... More

This is a lovely little place situated very near the main city centre in Lyon, serving wonderful regional food. It is busy with local people so booking is best, but I cannot praise it enough. The staff are attentive and they even have the menu in English for those with poor language skills. You won't be disappointed by your visit.... More

I'm sure restaurants don't like bad reviews, but diners don't like to write bad reviews, either. For the diner this means a disappointing evening, a bad experience because of bad food or bad service. In our case, it was both. We arrived a few minutes before our 8 PM reservation to a very brusque greeting. The 30 euro menu is... More
