Visited here with my partner, managed to get a last minute booking due to someone cancelling! Food was well presented, modern and delicious. The one man doing everything out the front was brilliant! Would recommend to anyone, but booking is essential!

This place shows what a couple of well motivated and talented restauranters can do. The menu is short, (good) but provides for non-meat eaters very well. Prices are modest for well cooked good quality food. There are a few oriental touches. Dishes included sea bass, guinea fowl, an excellent ballotine and raviolli of hake. The additional cheese board was good... More

This restaurant was out of the way of the normal restaurants but it's worth the trip to find it. The service was exceptional, the host warm and friendly, and the food was flavorful and very French. Great meal for a decent price and well worth the ratings here.

Based on TA, we made reservations about a month in advance and this was handled promptly and well. The restaurant is about 4 short blocks from the square in front of the Musee Beaux Arts and while the area is not the most upscale in Lyon, it is not a reason not to go. This is a small restaurant with... More

A very good restaurant for a quiet dinner. Excellent food, though a bit less memorable than the other restaurants we visited in Lyon.

What is extraordinary about this place is that it is tiny (12 tables), has a fixed menu and yet delivers such a high quality dining experience that you just wished you were one of the lucky locals who obviously come back repeatedly. L'Archange is popular and small and so reservations are recommended. While the menu is limited it is imaginative... More

A rare thing; a pretty room, calm atmosphere, tables not too close together, and attention to every detail. The menu features two starters, two mains, and the blackboard adds one more of each. We chose an excellent duck terrine then guinea fowl with figs and raisins. The wine list is short but our charming server/sommelier made an excellent choice for... More

We were warmly greeted into this small restaurant - 26 seats - by the lone very capable server. An elegant room with ancient stone walls and tables set respectfully apart. Three options for entree and three for plat. Every dish worthy of a picture. Delicious combinations of flavours with delightful complexity but not "over the top". The Chef deserves a... More

This is a fine little restaurant not very far from the opera house. Located in a narrow street, it's easily to miss but you shouldn't. Great food for the menu (three choices each) and wine card. Even though it might have not been in your list before, you should definetly go there and experience a great evening!
