I ate in this place twice during my one week stay in Lyon, it was a really enjoyable experience, the menu de jour is value for money, fishes are fresh, you do not even need to make a reservation due to the location which is not in the city centre.

A get-away from the traditional restaurants Jols is serving nice fish and seafood in an old market hall. The wine of the month had a good price-value and the rascasse served was very nice.

Great seafood in a nice environment. The former Market Hall has been converted into a restaurant focusing on fish and seafood. Service is OK, but it would be nice to have some more attention.

This fish restaurant is really nice and serves fresh sea foods and fishes. The fishes were quite fresh and well cooked. In french cousin, the dressing is very important to make the meal perfect. This restaurant prepares them well.

Jol's is situated on the saone river so try to get an outside or window table. Try to get a reservation as very popular. Oysters and prawns were delicious as entree, we chose Daurade - a whole brim with beautiful vegetables for main. Dessert list was small but decadent. Wine list good with by the glass and half bottles. Sancerre... More

Went there for diner last night. Food was great and came out fast. The restaurant had a nice setting and the service was great. BIG PLUS When we couldn't get a taxi, the chef took his own car and drove us home!!

We used to eat there before the football games. The service is always great, even during the evening rush and the food is really good.

This restaurant has always the nicest fish you can have in Lyon. It is always fresh, tasty but sometimes a bit greasy. Staff is very nice. The restaurant is nice designed. This can accomodate all kinds of visit from business or familly reunion.
