Awesome experience dining here. One of the previous reviewers mentioned the amuse bouche, was outstanding. Def a deal for 3 courses and 26 euros. It's a neighborhood restaurant that the locals go.

After being really disappointed with some mediocre food and service in the usual tourist areas over the past few days, we ate here at La Gargotte in Rue de Royale tonight after reading local recommendations. We highly recommend this small well run and traditional Lyon restaurant. The value for money will astound you! The owner is enthusiastic and charming, and... More

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

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

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
