This traditional bouchon Lyonnais was recommended by a waiter in Paris and our landlord in Lyon. Excellent traditional cooking with an emphasising offal dishes, but with plenty of other choices. I particularly enjoyed the herring salad. Not expensive.

Traditional bouchon lyonnais. Good variation in price of menu, with a three course option available at €19. One of the original bouchons left in Lyon. Modest restaurant with fantastic food and wine.

After more than 5 years in Lyon: voilà enfin un véritable bouchon lyonnais. Every thing was o.k. They're friendly. Decoration was perfect and most importantly "Le plat" was extraordinaire, with a reasonable price!

We popped in as a family of 7 on a Friday for lunch and were greated with a smile. Despite being busy, a table was extended and we immediately felt welcome. As mentioned by others you are being served hearty Lyonnaise food, but there was also a fish option as "plat du jour", which was very much liked. When you... More

Small Bouchon restaurant with friendly service by owner. Busy and on tourist route. Restricted menu but with good selection, Scratchings high in fat just like pork crackling

A cosy small buchon serving very good to excellent simple traditional fare. Friendly staff who seemed to know all of the clients on a Friday night. Good choice of specials not usually encountered. Only disappointment was the very short wine list of local wines.

We're not fans of offal but we knew we had to try this bouchon, one of Lyon's greats. We booked by phone a few weeks before going to France without any problem, although February is probably not a peak time. While people around tucked into squares of fried tripe and various tube-filled sausages with gusto, we had beautifully tender veal... More
