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!

First of all, there is nothing at all wrong with the area or the street. There are several restaurants near by and the street is quite busy, lots of people around. We didn't fear for our lives or even feel uneasy. Lovely room, crisp and modern, black, white and grey but still warm and comfortable. Tables nicely spaced. Twenty six... More

We were surprised to get a reservation at the supposedly #2 restaurant in Lyon. The restaurant is located in a somewhat shady area, not the safest neighborhood. The restaurant interior is very nice and the air conditioning was a plus. The entree choices were very limited, rabbit (imho, gross, not even an option), sea bass or duckling. I think the... More

The atmosphere is calm and relaxed, dimly lit, serene but informal. The food is excellent. The price of a menu seems to be essentially fixed and you have just a few dishes to choose among (always a good sign). The food is inventive, exceptionally good and the quantities were just right for us. Service is polite and attentive, to the... More

Great little restaurant with excellent service. Perfect for eg. a formal date. Not the right spot for loud people as the atmosphere is very calm. Excellent food, well presented.

Went there based on other reviews on tripadvisor. Quaint restaurant that is lovely. Food was fantastic. I don't really like duck but ordered it based on other reviews, and it was melt in your mouth delicious and you could cut it with a fork. The ravioli appetizer was also amazing and so was the chocolate dessert. This restaurant is a... More

The food is terrific. Lovely presentation tasty well prepared and just the right amount. The cost relative to the food is amazing. The service is superb, I called to delay our reservation due to last minute ballet tickets. I was told they could hold only 30 minutes later and I said we would leave the performance early. They phoned back... More
