Very very very friendly staff. Top food. Absolute must when in Saint-Étienne.

Very very very friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant ambiance in a cosy home-like environment. Top food. Very good wines. Parking is rather difficult, so just go a little bit up the hill for this.

We we're given this recommendation from the hotel we stayed at. We went on a Monday evening which was perfect as many locations are closed Mondays. There is a fixed price weekday menu at €29 for four courses!! The food is truly delicious and a work of art. Possibly the best dinner I have ever had. Service is impeccable.

Faultless service, faultless food, perfect surroundings, just amazing. Have eaten in loads of good places but this topped them all and yes it's not cheap but nor should it be.

Friends in Saint Etienne booked us (and them)into this restaurant on a Monday night when most resturants in town are closed. What a very lucky thing that was. A la table des Lys is, very simply, one of the best places we've ever eaten at. And the price/quality equation is perfectly outstanding. For a very moderate price, you are sure... More

I've been there with my colleague and some customers. Top quality in food and service, choosing À la carte is more expensive than choosing one of the menus. The sommelier can suggest you great wines at reasonable prices. Be careful there are not so many tables, so book in advance in the weekend. Great to have a romantic dinner.

We had dinner there with my daughter and her friend mid-July. This is simply an outstanding cuisine, an excellent service and a large choice of very good wines. Moreover, the design and decoration are very nice. I definitely recommend this restaurant for those who like excellent (French) food at a reasonable price. We paid 51 Euros each for "Gourmet dinner"... More
