Excellent classic French cuisine and service

Very hard to find fault with my dinner here. A smart, stylish, not over-modern dining room with comfortable chairs. Staff smart and just the right amount of attentiveness.

We were looking for a place to organize a family reunion from overseas and settled for La Table des Lys initialy because their menu propositions looked very attractive: A gasronomic cuisine with a modern angle. We also liked their reactivity answering our emails. On the day of the event we discovered a private salon with a table prepared with taste... More

Excellent meal having chosen one of the set menus. Wine reasonably priced for a good quality and service really attentive but not intrusive. Need to book as full on Friday night. Highly recommended and close to town centre.

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.
