On a recent trip to Lyon, my goddaughter and I decided to take the advise of our AirBnB hosts and visit La Gargotte. We enjoyed a fabulous meal in this intimate space. The food was prepared with care, blending a variety of ingredients to produce delightful dishes. We also loved the artistry put into the presentation of the dishes. While... More

This restaurant is rated #11 out of 2000+ in Lyon on TripAdvisor so having only decided to go there late yesterday afternoon,I rang to see if there was availability. I initially asked for 8pm for a table on 4 & agreed with the Manager that we would come at 8.30. On arriving he said, you must be Mr. David &... More

Heard rave reviews and could well believe them as the owner was all he was built up to be, charming and welcoming. The food was good, very original but it was a Saturday night, the place was packed, he continued to fill it and he had no staff! He apologised but it was not good enough - we arrived at... More

Our collegue recommended this place & we weren't disappointed! Food was delicious. Vina was good. Service was great! The waiter (owner?) was very polite, could explain the dish or recommend something. He speaks English well to feel comfortable to ask a questions. We enjoyed it!

We had a gorgeous meal, the owner explained the menu to us as it was in French and my French isn't that good. Delicious food and great wine list. Def go back. You will need to book as it gets full of locals

I and hubby had a diner at Saturday night. Not only the taste, but also their quality of service was satisfying enough. Menu "Starter-main dish-desert" costs only 25 euros ( December 2013)! If you want to have a diner with their quality in Paris, it costs at least 40 euros! I strongly recommend that you reserve in advance.

This restaurant is one of my favorite in Lyon, and I'm not just saying this as a neighbor! The food is great, inventive, good and beautiful, and the price (25€ for the menu) is un-beat-able. Ivan is a friendly guy and host on top of a great cook, and having blindly recommended it to many friends, I can safely recommend... More

This restaurant is only open at nights. We went there on a Satuday night and it was very busy. We had to wait quite a while between dishes. Having said that, it was delicious when arrived. The waiters try very hard to explain everything in English. The host, Ivan is very friendly and works the tables well seeing that the... More

We made a reservation, the place is really full on the weekends. The menú is very nice, with some delic things, apart of the traditional lyonais cuisine, but with some dishes really good and originals. The waiters explain for you eveything, trying to make you feel confortable. The meal is really nice. The only negative thing is that we went... More
