This is a really special restaurant. Firstly, the food is utterly delicious. It was all wonderful, but the lamb ravioli was genuinely as nice as starters I have eaten in Michelin starred restaurants. We could not believe how good the food was when the menu is so reasonably priced. Secondly, we loved the atmosphere. A beautiful room and tables, excellent... More

I have family living in Lyon, so I have spent quite a lot of time there trying out different restaurants. Needless to say I was excited about trying one of the best, if not the best, low price fine dining restaurant. The starter of lamb ravioli with garlic cream was very good, if just a tad under-seasoned. The mains of... More

This was one of the best meals I had while in France during my two week trip. The waitstaff was exceptionally accommodating, knowledgeable, and pleasant. I dined with my husband and another couple so had an opportunity to sample four outstanding meals and delicious desserts. The food was so good that I ordered the cheese plate (and was not disappointed).... More

Cannot heap enough praise on this place. Even at double the price it would be cheap. Started with home made (more hand crafted) lamb ravioli which was sensational. Then pork medallions for main, again....exquisite.....then delicious cheese course for a small surcharge finished off with sensational pineapple purée! The house wine was more than good enough and finished off with a... More

As has already been said, the couple that own this place (she in the kitchen and he upfront) have created a beautiful, classy environment in which to enjoy a quiet, upscale meal. For this price point, I have no doubt that it earns its high regard. The food was excellent, the wine list well chosen & the pacing and overall... More

Had a fantastic meal in this restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the drinks were very reasonable. There's not a huge choice on the menu but what they do have they do extremely well. If we're ever in Lyon again we shall definitely go back!

Archange is an unusually good restaurant that is clearly a cut above, and at the same time the prices are very reasonable. It is a small, quiet, and friendly place where you are welcomed and treated graciously. The food is elegantly prepared and the flavors are outstanding. Fish dishes were particularly good, the wine list is not huge but very... More

My husband had read the great reviews so he booked a table well in advance of our trip to Lyon. We loved our meal, the ambiance, and service. Food was excellent! The plates were beautifully presented and tasted as good as they looked. Highly recommend Archange, especially for 30€ pp in a town that is pretty expensive to eat in.

The meal I had at Archange was hands-down the best meal I have ever eaten. The small Lyon restaurant has about 9 small tables so reservations are a must. The atmosphere is wonderful, giving you a classy yet comfortable vibe. And the one waiter/host/bartender constituted the best service I've ever had in France. But enough about that...it's all about the... More
