Service can truly make or break the experience at the restaurant. We had the lack of luck to be served by a walking embodiment of all French cliches about waiters - pompous, unpleasant and standoffish. Even the lovely team at the entrance could not erase the impression. The food...yes, it was good, very good even, but I feel that as... More

I'm backpacking across Europe and on a tight budget, but decided with the culinary history of Lyon it would be my destination to explore French cuisine. I picked this restaurant from Trip Advisor and reviews from locals confirmed my choice. It was definitely worth it! Great culinary experience with awesomeness across the board from food, presentation, service... Pricey, but delicious... More

The French say that the best French food is served in Lyon. Which raises the obvious question: which is the best food in Lyon itself? A visit to La Mère Brazier definitively answers the question. This is very best of French cuisine, authentic, generous, and delicious. The set lunch is fantastic value for money. This is food as it was... More

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
