My husband and I had dinner here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The staff said the codfish is grilled. I ordered it but it looks all white like it was steamed (no color at all from being grilled or pan fried). It tasted ok. The normal and truffle mashed potatoes were nice (the normal one comes with our mains... More

A great little gem in the center with nice ambiance. Relaxed and with liberal opening hours. Best suited for a casual catch up with friends over a coffee and cake, or one of their delicious, very french warm sandwiches. Local hub!

Fantastic little find down a cobble stone street, metal chairs with a old deli feeling. Orded blue cheese and the mozzarella with a salad. Frendly staff with english comand the prices are reasonable a great little lunch spot in town. Without the tourist trap.

First off, let's start with the food. Terrific sandwiches! But, the atmosphere is the "thing to look for" in L'Epicerie! I can't even describe it. You have to experience it for yourself... Prices are very nice also and the service is outstanding.

Charming little place. Tartines are just lovely, especially the blue cheese one, but i'd recommend trying a few different ones to share. It was a great, tasty and cheap dinner. I'd definitely recommend this place. When visiting Lyon, you just have to experience it.

In the centre of lyon, it is not easy to get a simple yet French meal without being stung. This little Tartine shop is effetively serving cheese on toast, or open sandwiches, but they are tasty, the staff have a little english and the environment is lovely. For what it is, I would have scored it 5, except the staff... More

The almost private courtyard overlooking an art gallery and an old church far outweigh the nothing-out-of-the ordinary food served here, One final point, the house wine was by far the worst I tried in the region.

Tartines is pretty basic food but this place serves it With soul. Prices are cheap and staff awake and smilling! Make sure to order some different ones on your table and mix it! The cider is also good and cool! The place is nicely decorated and The area is a good evening Walk worth!

We went here for a late breakfast, which is not something they really do in France! The tartines, which is much more than cheese on toast, was excellent. All washed down with a large coffee and served by a friendly waiter.

We visited the restaurant with friends whilst visiting the city. We were recommended L'Epicerie by a local in a bar the night previous. Upon arriving we were greeted warmly by the staff who seated us promptly and got us some reasonably priced wine and beer. In my group we ate between us bacon and lentil soup, bourgignon tartine and tartiflette... More
