Tucked in one of the many narrow charming streets in Lyon, Archange is a little gem ran by a (presumably) small crew that doesn't lack passion for what they do. First of all beautiful decor, second just one gentleman handling the whole room of tables, but so well organized, so lovely, discreet and helpful at the same time that you... More

A truly remarkable dining experience in the beautiful city of Lyon. Archange was the best meal we had in Europe. Every single dish we had was perfectly executed and a work of art. The 3 course meal was reasonably priced (approximately $35/pp). Despite our poor French, our waiter was extremely gracious and did his best to explain the menu to... More

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
