We ate there two nights in a row, which is quite contrary to our "cannot go back policy". It was so nice.the first time that we wanted to return. The service was superb and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Our entrees were excellent and desserts were exceptional. Owner recognized us from night before and appreciated our return visit. I...

We had dinner here and it was one of the best we had while in France for two weeks. They accommodated my sister who is a vegetarian. My mother had the cod and said it was the best seafood she has ever had and we live in Seattle. They were very pleasant and helpful as we don't speak much french.

The thing I don't like is the new stuff on... More

The Brasserie Francotte was good but not one of the best meals ever. Set on a pretty square in a pleasant part of Lyon, the restaurant seemed slightly formal. The dishes are prepared with great care and the presentation is creative and pleasing. Scallops were good but could have been more tender and sweet. The avocado pancake fell a little... More

Brasserie Francotte is literally around the corner from the Hotel des Celestins, which makes it a wonderful place for dinner after a long day of flights from the USA. The food and the service were excellent. My wife, who speaks French, had called prior to our departure from home to make a reservation for our group of 8, but although... More

We arrived to this Brasserie following the TripAdvisor suggestions and the history behind this restaurant. The food was good and also the personnel is really careful of the persons. We eat an 'entrecôte' and a dessert. The meat was on the average while the desserts were superb. The wine, easy, was excellent. The price of the dinner was a little... More

Excellent but not outstanding. The brasserie is good, good wine and good food too. (But I would have expected better) Interesting location and tipical environment.

We went here on the basis of tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Imaginative cooking well executed. A la carte or fixed menu. I had 3 course fixed menu at 29.50€, basically choice of meat or fish. Service efficient and pleasant. Good French wine selection. Would certainly recommend.

We had dinner here our first night in Lyon so were very tired from @ 30 hour trip from our home to here. Server spoke excellent English taking that brain work from us. We enjoyed an addictively good hazelnut liquor while deciding on dinner choices. My wife started with a veloute from heaven-perfect cream base with lardon and large, tender... More
