The restaurant is very small with very limited menu. I ordered Tripe and my wife had fish. There was nothing special about the dishes. Both I and my wife could not finish them. We ordered Plum in wine for desert and we think it came from can. The service was not good either. We definitely would not recommend this restaurant.

This a fantastic small restaurant in typical Lyon style and food. We had the special menu for the day. Two of us had lamb shank and two fish. The starter was fresh salad with duck hearts. The tarte pralines should not be missed.

Booked a table in advance. When showing up we got a lovely greeting and were seated next to some lovely locals we had a great time chatting a bit with. Both mains and desserts were excellent and the whole evening will be remembered for a long time. Thank you!

Definitely a bouchon worth visiting if you're looking for typical Lyonnaise cuisine of heavily cooked parts and pates. Portions are also huge so share it out if you can! We started off with herring with potatoes and foei gras or terrine cube, and both were awesome! I had the veal kidney in mustard sauce and my husband had the traditional... More

Would definitely go back to Chez George! The quenelles were to die for as well as the eggs in cream and tripe sausage. It's served family style so when we ordered the chicken liver salad and terrine the entire terrine was brought to the table to help ourselves! It was the same for the onion soup as well as the...

We went here on a recommendation of a friend, but unfortunately the experience was not great. We made a reservation via email without any issues. We are big time foodies back home, but authentic bouchon food is just not for everyone (you really have to be into eating tripe and fatty dishes). The staff does not speak much English and... More

Small place, local food, very friendly staff. Everything seems fresh and homemade. The food is rather heavy and tipical Lyonnaise, so it might not be for everyone but you can definitely find a very high quality in everything.
