Chef is a young and ambitious guy - he delivers excellent service. Food is good there - not top top but good, apart from his foie gras - this starter dish beats all foie gras that we had in our live - and we had already a lot of foie gras in our live (including in California where there is... More

Went there during a road trip. It was amazingly good (exactly as you expect French cuisine to be) and at a very reasonable price (we were on a tight budget). Tables were so close that we even started chatting with our 'neighbors', who suggested us what to eat. A very friendly atmosphere and staff. We would definitely go back when... More

Our last night in town was spent at our favorite restaurant in Lyon. Food was delicious. We had a great bottle of Guigal's Cornas. The chef was totally entraining. The place was bustling with locals. We had several courses, and everything was reasonably price. Go to try this place if you want to get off the beaten path and have... More

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.
