From the food point of view: amazing! The langoustine entree is just perfect. I also had an Abalone dish: quite amazing and hearty as well! Value for money is what to expect, don't expect a good deal. There is a fee for the car keeper, I think the restaurant should take care of it. Staff is a little bit junior... More

Don't look for tis restaurant in the Rue Royale. The Mayor of Lyon has changed it to Rue La Mere Brazier. This is an establishment that goes on strong from 1921. It is said that world famous chef Paul Bocuse has learnt his art in this restaurant. The Michelin starred chef Viannay bought this restaurant in 2008 and saved it... More

This restaurant has a century of history and we feasted. We choiced historic menu that lists the dishes original chef. A special mention foie gras artichoke. Perfect service and a little chat with the chef to finish.

France's TGV, the Tres Grande Vitesse, is an amazing technical achievement and makes possible things that aren't possible in most other parts of the world. For example, we visited this restaurant from Paris, some 600 km (360 miles) distant, just to have lunch and return the same day. Our TGV averaged a cool 300 kph and hit a top speed... More

The restaurant is very fancy, and the food is great!!..I like their wine pairings and their Menu degustation". The only thing I don't like is the acoustic of the place, you can even sense de tone of the person of the other table talking to her companion. Is very annoying. Everything else is perfect. Good yo impress bussiness people.

Very formal Lyon dining. The staff were mostly exceptional, only one with an annoyance for American diners/not French speaking. The female sommelier was very kind and helpful, helping us pick out a perfect bottle of wine. Our main server was also helpful. The chef made the rounds to introduce himself. Highly recommend for traditional Lyon experience.

We went to Lyon, originally planning to visit the Bocuse place. But due to our late booking, no table was available for the days we were in Lyon. So, we ended up visiting this charming restaurant. One word describes every aspect of this restaurant, proper. From the way we were welcomed into this establishment, being led to our reserved table,... More

Every dishes are too salty. It's hard to understand why Michelin rated 2 stars.

Will be straight to the point : I've been to a lot of restaurants around the globe, sometime with high expectations. This was the case with La Mere Brazier, because I've used to live in Lyon and I've followed the career of the chef since his work at M Restaurant before, and I've heard lots of good things about the...

Let's start out with the good, it was nice to meet the chef, that he came and greeted all the tables. Also, it's great that the Michelin chef still actually cooks at his own restaurant. A couple of the dishes were quite good, but not mind blowingly good. For my meal, I had the tasting menu, which as i understand,... More
