Very good restaurant

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.

Very good place to eat fresh fish dishes, nicely and rather quick served. Open cuisine to the public. Good choice in the menue. Delicious desserts. It is better to reserve in advance.

Thats it seafood and wine both are perfect served in this restaurant. Nothing is to much nothing is a problem great. The service starts by the table reservation, order, serving, billing everything works great together. Thank you for everything. We have been in your restaurant already 5 times, always successful.

The place is very nice located in a old market hall. It is all about fish, althouh there are also one or 2 meat dishes. I took oysters as a starter. They were very fresh and tasty. My fried fish as main course was not very good.I even wondered if it was all fresh. They have a good selection of... More

Actually it was a big lunch. A soup (of course fish one) and tuna steak with thai souce and rice. Good, but nothing magical. Too strong smell of fish bothered a bit and above all I find it as a good restaurant.

Worst fish I ever had in my life. Besides the horrible fish, service was really bad and the kitchen even managed to screw up the one part of the menu that I didn't think was possible: saint Marcellin cheese served on a hot plate out of the dishwasher so it was half melted. Jols claims to serve fresh fish but... More

The restaurant has different branches, I went at 30 quai Saint Antoine - close to my hotel and very nice location apparently... At a closer look the whole place was not really clean and stylish as they pretend it to be. The food was not nice, we had a soup (nearly cold), grilled fish (no taste) and mixed fried fish... More

We spent the New Year's Eve evening at this restaurant. There were 2 fixed menus for this evening, so we had both of them. Although the chef tried to give a gourmet flair, the food was average. The dessert was bellow average. Regarding the service, the girl that serviced our table was GREAT, friendly, professional, quick. Overall, a decent fish... More
