Have been coming to Lyon for Bocuse D'or for many years and for once had the experience of trying L'Alexandrin. It was well worth the wait Had the tasting menu which that night featured the Truflle, went all in 5 course menu, also the option was there not to have truffle with every course, so at... read more

May 15th had dinner at L'Alexandrin. The place was fully booked that evening, with also the presence of a group of 11 people that eve - this did, luckily, not generate too much noise. The place is not very big and rather traditionally decorated. During our dinner it was pretty warm in the restaurant. We opted for the Esprit de... More

I cannot understand why another reviewer recently wrote that this restaurant lost its Michelin star. I carefully checked and they have a one star in 2014 Michelin guide. We had a very pleasant evening there. The food was excellent, and easy to understand (no unnecessary sophistication). The service was friendly, even if the hostess can appear "reserved" sometimes.

Extremely disappointed with this Michelin Star restaurant - definitely not worth the price. Visited on a Saturday night - they only had 4 tables of guests. Restaurant was hot and stuffy. Seems that even though there were 3 servers, only 1 of them was doing the serving, the other 2 were probably new and simply awaiting orders. Food was average,... More

We recently went to L'Alexandrin on a weekend trip to Lyon, and can easily see why the restaurant lost its Michelin star. While the quality of the food was decent, the service was so bad and rude that it completely ruined the experience. There were only two servers for the room on a Saturday night and they were outrageously slow... More

Attended as a group of 4 and had the very best of nights. Had the tasting Lyon menu and came away extremely contented and very happy. It would rate as one of the best meals I have ever had. The service was simply brilliant and well synchronised. I believe it is a husband and wife team ably assisted by some... More

Visited 22/12/2012 for dinner. 2 adults + 1 child aged 13. We had "Menu Esprit de Lyon" for 60€/each as single meal order is not available for dinner. Everything was absolutely fantastic ... but this is really too much in terms of quantity even though we are used to it with strong French cuisine culture coming from our 2 families.... More

We booked our meal through the Ideal Gourmet website so had paid upfront (€140 for 2). We were greeted with a glass of Champagne and proceeded to enjoy a small bite and 5 soups served in differing shotglasses (the cream of scallop with chorizo was stunning). Only after this did we have our starters! The meal was wonderful (8 courses... More

Before heading to Lyon, we found recommendations on Chowhound for this and other restaurants in Lyon. We ate at six of what were touted as the “best” restaurants and by far L’Alexandrin was our favorite. In fact, the dinner we enjoyed there in March is among one of the best meals we’ve had in recent memory. (I am a sucker... More

Compared to some of the other top notch restos I had a chance to enjoy in Lyon, this truly didn't live up to its rep. Had a menu fixe, but 2 of the three courses were disappointing, and the cheese was mediocre. The service was also condescending . There are much better options out there for the same price or...
