A gem revealed with each of Chef Ivan Peric's culinary creations

Dining at La Gargotte reminded me of my visits to museums in big cities like Rome or Paris. With a simple goal to be awed, I didn't really know what to expect and I merely relied on the artists' creativity to stir up my imagination and stimulate all my senses. Like many of my favorite... read more

I've been there at least 3 times. 2 times in couple and 1 time for business. My best experience was with my colleagues. We had a warm welcome, and oral menu translation, and a very good table. Our dinner was Excellent, and my colleagues really loved the french food for once ^^ On the other hand coming back with my... More

The main meal was amazing and the dessert was to die for. We also got free samples of appetizers and drinks. I definitely recommend tis to anyone who wants to have a very good meal at an affordable price. The reception from the chef was warm and intimate. Such an experience is very rare in France.

I have gone twice to this restaurant. The waiter is good. The food is good. Then the service is HORRIBLE. The cook is the waiter. We got a reservation at 8pm and the waiter didn't take our order until 8:50pm. And then when he brought the main dish, he forgot one for my friend, and didnt bring it until we... More

Loved this small cozy restaurant. Superb service, excellent dishes and great atmosphere. Lyon is said to be the gastronomic capital of France. This restaurant for sure attributes to the claim.

Ivan the owner chef is a nice friendly person and very keen to please, but the restaurant is over-busy and now becoming too stretched to provide the good quality we expect and that Ivan wants. The menu was too 'clever' with too many dishes. The quality was average. There were over 110 people booked and Ivan told me he was... More

We were a bit early, so the owner was still cleaning the place. He offered to keep our laptop bags so we could go for a drink... We came back and had a delicious 3 course meal with foi gras, duck, chocolate moelleux and a fancy foie gras macaron with sparkping wine as a starter. All for EUR 26! Fantastic... More

If you happen to walk by this place before its opening you’ll be perplexed. It is not a place which draws people. Just a small menu outside, some newspapers articles displayed in the windows near the door. The interior is not tempting because is as old as the exterior. There are only a small dining room near the counter and... More
