Small, super food and friendly

Superb meal in a family run restaurant. Tiny restaurant without being intrusive on other diners. Relaxed and warm atmosphere!

The general manager at my hotel recommended and booked a table for me at this Bouchon. I had no idea what to expect since I'd never been to Lyon before but I was very pleasantly surprised. The owner and chef don't speak English as the other reviews have mentioned but I had no trouble communicating what I'd like and anything... More

Like many others have said, this is some of the best food in France. However, I will disagree with those that suggest that there might be some difficulty navigating in English. A simple please and thank you in French plus a good attitude is all you need to get you through. Both the chef and the waiter had sufficient knowledge... More

If you bring a healthy appetite, a sense of adventure, and a sense of humor, you will receive in return a wonderful local meal in congenial surroundings. The food is not light, the space is tight, but everything is wonderfully prepared. (You might have difficulty if you are squeamish about what you eat, but it is truly all delicious)!

If you are going to spend money at a place like this , do your research first. The service exceptional, the atmosphere, cosy and warm, a little too warm in summer , but that what you expect on a hot Lyon day. The food, rich as the richest food you have ever eaten. I thought i knew rich food but... More

I am sharing this in english as I would truly like to recommend this bouchon to all the foreigners visiting Lyon. I am myself originally from Lyon and spent most of my life there and I was amazed when I visited Chez Georges. The place is just all about a bouchon: nice traditional decoration, small space, many tables, a friendly... More

Lunch with three friends. An excellent and copious plat du jour: salade mason including a generous tranche of foie gras and several slices of magret de canard. Implausibly, the simple cockerel crest salad was very good as was the follow-up of the menu du jour, namely chicken in a vinegar-based source. The ouef en cocotte followed by the veal kidneys...

Like a typical bouchon, food here is heavy and this is where you can get all sorts of organs. Try the charcuterie here with home made terrine. For mains, we tried the Veal kidney (rognon) in Mustard sauce and for a non organ eater like me, it was good. The food requires some adventurous stomach for most part. But the... More
