We had read about this restaurant online, and in Lyon travel books, and were keen to experience one of the oldest and largest brasseries in Europe. We went one evening in mid July and had the option to eat either inside or out. While it was warm inside without air conditioning, to really experience the setting and the atmosphere it... More

Excellent beef and side dishes. Their beer is also very nice. Reasonable prices compared to food quality.

This is simply a fantastic brasserie in Lyon. A bit hard to find via public transit, but worth a little extra effort. The escargot was among the best ever and the rest of the meal was also superb. This is a huge brasserie for a reason, they fill it up with mostly locals as well as a fair tourist trade.... More

We spent New Years Eve in Lyon in December 2013. For a wonderful selection of mains and desserts Georges was a beautiful place to dine. Our waiter was very tolerant of my poor French (appalling really) and helped us to choose meals we both loved. I would dine there any time and strongly recommend it to those who want value... More

This brasserie is a little on the pricey side, and in a strange location, but it is by far the coolest brasserie I have ever seen. It's a total art deco throwback. It's like a huge, old American bank building from the 70's. If you're lucky enough to go when there isn't a crowd, you'll feel all alone in this... More

It has to be one of the first micro breweries ever! Today with so much choice it is hard to imagine this space being so innovative for its time and to take in the fact that it has stood the test of time. People still do come in to taste the beer, the wine, and the food. It is busy... More

Beautiful, huge (but noisy) restaurant, specialising in classic brasserie dishes. It's a "must visit" in Lyon, as much for the "table ceremony" and the Art Deco decor as for the food. It's reasonably good value for the money, with very generous portions served with flair. Be sure to try the "famous" steak tartare. While there is better food at other... More

This is an institution in Lyon and was probably the largest restaurant we have ever visited. Unfortunately the food did not really match the reputation. Certainly a place to go in a group as there will be no quiet romantic evening here. There were many celebrations for birthdays as the lights kept going out as sparkler-topped cakes were continuously brought... More

And visiting Brasserie George at least once is one of them! This huge restaurant next to the Perrache Station is Art Deco style is an experiece.

I have taken all my friends and family here at least once. The food is excellent, generous plates and very tasty. The theme is mainly alsatian food and they have excellent beer and wine menus. It fills up very quickly, so book ahead. And if it's your birthday, be sure to tell the staff because they go all out to... More
