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

If you are looking for a place for lunch near ENS (Metro Debourg), this is a good pick...and perhaps the only one! A nice and airy space, decent service and good fish.

Even though Jols is outside of the tourist trap of Vieux Lyon it's well worth a visit if you like seafood and fish. The menu also had a great meat selection if someone in your party doesn't like fish and everything is well presented! Very helpful head waiter who spoke good English and came over to the table especially to... More

Dined here recently with a group of colleagues in town for a business meeting. Very good job of serving a large group. Service and food quality were very good.
