good food & atmosphere

We chose to sit outside which our Hotelier has said would have given us slightly more space between tables. A lot of birthdays being celebrated with good atmosphere. Food & service very good with English speaking servers.

We ate choucroute Imperial et Royale avec 2 Bière Georges, it was very good. If you don´t eat a lot I suggest to order only 1 choucroute, they serve a lot. The place is really nice. The service excellent.

Probably one of the largest restaurants I've ever eaten in, there must be about 500 covers! Still, the welcome at the door, and the attentiveness of the waiter was excellent. Prices for the formule were very reasonable, as was the wine list. The décor was outstanding. Food-wise, it was OK, but beware, always ask exactly what is on offer as... More

I choose this place whenever I need to entertain any size of group, it is impressive without being overbearing, good quality without being too expensive, and therefore remains in memories for a long time. Don't miss the omelette norvegienne dessert, but order only half of what you plan to eat: one order is normally for 2, but actually is enough... More

This place is big! But not too crowded when we came. My husband had the boeuf tartare. This differed from steak tartar, in that it was hamburg, (!) raw of course. They mixed it at your table with a sauce and seasoning, and then patted it into a patty on your plate! He said it was very good. I opted... More

I first went here about 20 years ago and had fond memories of eating pork offal sausages and drinking fin wine. Having returned the other day, I thought the food was not as good as I remembered it, its was good but not excellent and relatively expensive. The ambience is however fantastic , a vast hall that feels like an... More

This was my first dining experience in France in about ten years, and my first ever in Lyon. I had just arrived on a late train from Geneva and was delighted that there was somewhere open and near the train station and that appeared to offer good service to the non-francophones. So I started off with a generous attitude, which... More

Nice food, gorgeous inside. We did go there on advice from the owner of the guest house where we stayed and after we thanked him.

As it is one of the most famous restaurants in Lyon I proposed to try it for a business group. The place itself is very interesting, the beer they brew is good but we were disappointed with the service and the food. The dishes we ordered were too expensive for what they were, and nobody enjoyed too much

This large Lyon icon has been around for years, serving food and acting a military HQ during WWII. Now it is a window into Lyonnais celebrations of birthdays, anniversaries, and Sundays. The food is diverse (meats and fish) but simple...nothing exquisite or fancy, but fun for the family. Don't be surprised to see sparklers on Baked Alaska for birthdays or... More
