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!

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
