It helps I'm sure that my husband speaks pretty good French so we didn't fall into any ordering problems as other reviewers did. We were slightly baffled by the paying system - you have to go to the till but I didn't realise that for quite a while! The food was of a very high standard. I couldn't fault my... More

Enjoyable restaurant, no more, no less. Duck tartare was promising but the salad on which it was served didn't do it favors and the advertised truffle oil was not obvious enough. The Bresse chicken was tasty with the mushroom sauce that was just a bit too salty. Dessert was an average chocolate moeilleux. Staff was friendly but around our terras... More

We usually tend to go to another bouchon across the road. Since our favorite was not serving late lunches, we opted for the comptoir des marroniers. We chose the menu Lyonnais at 19 euros. The "pressee de tete de cochon" was just marvellous with a tingy vinaigrette, shavings of radishes and spring salad with beetroot. My daughter salade lyonnaise was... More

The food in this restaurant is very good, typical of Lyon. It deserves all the nominations it got in various guides (Gault&Millau, Michelin...). I don't have anything more to say : fabulous !

Unfortunately, we chose to eat at Le Comptoir des Liars on our second (and last) night in Lyon. Our stay in this lovely city was overshadowed by what I can only call a terrible dining experience. We understand that we are slightly handicapped in France as Americans who don't speak French. When we ordered, we were concerned that the items... More

We just ate at this restaurant. We both ordered two different chicken dishes. Before we ordered, we asked our waitress if they both were indeed chicken. She assured us they were. When our food finally came out by a different waiter, he asked which of us ordered the duck. Neither of us did. He then went back to the kitchen... More

Got here by coincidence, on our first visit to Lyon ever.. just looking for lunch, and having a hard time to make a choice between all possibilities in rue des Maronniers. A 2013 Gault Millau recommendation did the trick. even though it was busy, we were assisted in a friendly, welcoming, and no-nonsense manner.. Food was great (chicken liver salad... More

We've chosen this restaurant to have a dinner on my birthday. As we observed. it is rather popular with locals. We liked salads, especially salade d'ete. Then we ordered Black Angus steak with pepper sauce (it was a bit too hot, but I liked it) and some bird with mushroom sauce. The menu said, it was chicken, but I guess... More

We picked it out from the many on offer in this part of Lyon and were not disappointed. I opted for the set menu at 19€ and can say that it was excellent value for money. I will go back when i get the chance and have the Suprême de Poulet again as it was stunning!!

My husband and I ate here tonight. He had the Angus steak with pepper sauce and I had the braised chicken with mushroom sauce. Unfortunately we cannot agree with the other reviewers and found our meals to be awful. Probably the worst I've ever had. Chicken was smelly, dark chicken leg, over cooked shredded vegetables, horrible mushroom sauce with tasteless... More
