This restaurant is the complete antithesis of the likes of Notre Maison, or Tonton Patate both of which we found to be marvellous for their rough and ready hearty food and terrific "bouchon" atmosphere. At L'Archange you will find quiet sophistication and a finesse in just about everything. At €29.90 for the limited choice menu ( there is no a... More

This restaurant was absolutely marvelous. I went with my family of four. When approaching the restaurant, we saw a sign that said the restaurant was all booked up tonight. Luckily, we did have a reservation but it's hopeless to go without. Once inside, we were immediately greeted and given the choice between two tables. The menu was only prefix with... More

We ate at Archange a couple of weeks ago after my wife carried out a search of restaurants in Lyon. Everything about the restaurant was fantastic, the ambiance was very romantic, the service was excellent, without being intrusive and the food was amazing. We will definitely go back when we are next in Lyon

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it was absolutely delicious. We each had the three course menu that began with a delicious duck appetizer or gazpacho with shrimp, followed by a delicious tuna filet that was perfectly prepared, ending with a beautiful red fruits and rhubarb dessert. It was a perfect summertime meal. The atmosphere was cozy, comfortable... More

A quiet dinner for two in Lyon was planned from Australia many months ago after extensive on line research. Almost none of the reviews prepared me for the wonderful dining experience we had two nights ago. Upon entering this beautifully and subtly decorated interior you are immediately impressed by it's peacefulNess . The host is most welcoming and sincere ensuring... More

We would have not found this great restaurant without Trip Advisor's help. It is definitely worth the trip and the 4 of us enjoyed our meal!! The waiter is very efficient and you definitely need reservations. The 3 course meal is definitely worth the price.

I had done some homework on Trip Advisor to find and book this restaurant for my husband's 50th birthday. I would definitely recommend reserving as it is a small and popular restaurant and several prospective parties were turned away. The restaurant is small and intimate (definitely only for couples!). The waiter was very friendly and helpful, translating the menu for... More

Food was truly remarkable, waiter was helpful and friendly. Affordable prices. Only downside was the size of the portions but it seems comparable with other restaurants in France. The menu in English would be also nice to have. In short - definitely must visit this place!

A truly gourmet meal in a down to earth, friendly restaurant. A single waiter shows how a gifted individual can make all the difference. Exquisite plates , fast and warm service what else can you ask for, may be one more thing a fair price - and yes this is true also .. Don't miss this hidden gem.
