Generous "tartines", nice atmosphere

We appreciated the decoration of the place (and the pies exposed next to the kitchen that looked delicious.) The tartines are generous and can be accompanied by a salad: perfect for a nice meal. The charcuterie planchette was also generous and the prices more than ok! The place can be quite... read more

The restaurant follows its' own rules: Particular dishes, unusually cheap prices and high quality ingredients. A fresh air breeze for those who find Lyon's prices high. The service was very good, the ambient relaxed and cool and the place excelent, as it's located in the old town. Fully recomend!

The atmosphere is unique, the furniture and the caos around the table brings you back to the '20-'30. The food is simple but the prices as well so why complaint it? Tasty and flavoured piece of bread with many different vegetables or meats. Dessert fabulous! The waiters can speak English and are kind and fast. Don't miss it!

A food adress to eat in a french way for cheap. Enjoy the tartines with a fresh salad! The déserts are quite good. All is homemade. The décoration is finally gorgeous.

We needed a place to eat between business hours - as you may know, food is only served at certain times of the day - so we stumbled into this wonderful place haphazardly. What a wonderful surprise! It specializes in tartines - open faced sandwiches - the duck was fabulous! We also had an apple pie which was so natural... More

A delightful little restaurant with a great atmosphere! Cheap and cheerful, we enjoyed the house speciality tartine foie gras with a side salad for an extra 2€, followed by coffee and cassis tart. The place is extremely crowded and very popular, so if you're after a quiet romantic spot this is not the place to go! Definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant fits the environmentf of its location in vieux Lyon. Cured sausages and meats hanging from hooks over the bar just inside; the same way as in the 1600's. The food is delicious and filling having generous portions and very French. We were unable to order dessert due to the fact that we were too full which was unfotunate.... More
