Great restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. Decor was eclectic yet homely. Meals were good. 25 euro for entree, main and dessert. Chicken and duck salad was a great entree. The confit duck and the pork cheek were both delicious individual mains. Both meats were so tender and melted in your mouth... read more

I was recommended this place by the concierge of the hotel where I stayed. I was tired of non-english-speak restaurants in Lyon. Fortunately, I found this small bistro and had no difficulty in order and conversation. I ate duck and it was so tasty. I went there the rest two nights in Lyon

Small restaurant, maybe eight tables. The service is personable, attentive, the decor is eclectic with touches of elegance. The food is excellent, the selection is somewhat limited but the quality is outstanding. We went there several nights in a row because we liked it so much.

We were staying in an apartment next door to this small restaurant and as it seemed very welcoming we popped in and were able to get a table at short notice although generally the restaurant was full. The service was excellent with a lovely waiter who spoke excellent English and was able to explain the finer points of the menu.... More

A very small family run restaurant that focuses on local and fresh ingredients. This is not a restaurant for gastronomic excellence. The food is simple but wonderfully prepared. They have wine by the bottle but try their local wine by the carafe. It is very good. For 23 euros each, we had an excellent 3 course meal that was very... More

Hey, this little place was great. Although servers did not speak English at all, we were able to figure out what to order....and the duck was excellent.

Went looking for a small local bistrot and found atmosphere, friendly locals, food better than many other top local restaurants, and pleasant informative service. going back for a second night to celebrate my birthday on the road. Heartily recommend - a Lyonese hidden gem. Not an extensive menu or wine list, but all good and overall well balanced. Portion size... More

Small, wth charming, eclectic decor of old telephones, hats, etc.. I ordered a prix fixe menu; mini raviolis in pesto with escargots;delicious and al dente; followed by a delicious veal rib chop with a... More
