Simply very good food and pleasant service.

We ate at Francotte while staying at adjacent Hotel des Artistes. Service is friendly and helpful. Decor is pretty standard French Brasserie. The wine list is well-chosen and reasonable in price. We had a light meal of steak tartar and broiled cod. Both were well done and appropriate to a good brasserie. The outside seating is on the plaza in... More

I went twice to this Brasserie on my recent visit to Lyon because it was almost next to my hotel and was highly recommended by a friend. The lunch was excellent (sweetbreads), and so was the dinner, a combination of shrimp and pork. It was excellent, and medium priced. The menu is not extensive but the food quality was wonderful,...

When we booked, the hosts told us they were used to having pre-performances customers for the theatre nearby. Although we repeated three times we were expected at the theatre at eight, we were five minutes late : we coudn't get in the theatre on time and we lost the seats we had booked. Finally we missed the incipit of the... More

We are fish eaters and often struggle to find good fresh fish properly cooked (ie still moist inside). This restaurant succeeded on both accounts and we had a great meal which we thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended.

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.
