Intimate restaurant serving great flavors

A small, friendly and intimate restaurant, serving up the most amazing flavors and dishes. We ended up with the full tasting menu of 9 dishes, matched with wines. Every dish left us wanting more - so if anything the portions could have been bigger. Not that I needed it, but it was just that good.

I had a quick lunch there. Food is 8/8.5 out of 10 - services were a little slow consider there's only 1 waiter. Decoration is modern- few interesting dishes and preparation.

A fantastic experience. Sit down, select how many courses you like and pick any ingredients you don't want included and begin your journey. Excellent service and decor provide the perfect environment to focus on the wide range of unusual flavours about to grace your palette. Beautifully balanced and very well presented there was much to enjoy. I won't spoil the... More

Just very good...I love the chef's touch..his food is very creative and fun, not just because if the mix of molecular and traditional techniques, but also because his dishes are fun. Service is very cool and casual. Always go there.

Incredible atmosphere with perfect lighting and gentle music. The restaurant has a soft white glow with a splash of stone and oversized walls filled with living plants. The service was almost spot on, first the waiter did his best to translate everything into English, which was a nice effort, but he forgot our last glass of wine hence the 4.5... More

Without a reservation we could get a table in this restaurant which we already read something about, so a good start. From the menu you can choose how many courses you want (and a wine arrangement) and which of the ingredients you want or do NOT want. After these choices it just sit back and enjoy whats coming your way!... More

Flew down from Amsterdam for lunch in Lyon.... sometimes it's good to do crazy things! I'd booked by phone at Le Musee, but arrived to find it shut and the owners on holiday! No matter, went round a few corners and found myself outside Eskis. Not busy (it's the holiday season in Lyon!) so getting a table not a problem.... More

My husband and I had a magnificent lunch at Eskis. We were served a plate of tiny amuse bouches as we were deciding what to order, and they were so splendid and full of surprise that we both immediately opted for the larger of the two pairing menus with the accompanying wine. We were not disappointed. The whole meal was... More
