Last weekend I went to L'Ethno Bar for a private party. My friend ordered the beef tapas and while I had the calamari. I noticed something red in her dish but just thought it was a tomato. Upon further inspection I found that it was not a tomato, but actually a PLASTIC KETCHUP TOP. I took the plate up to... More

This big pub is very nice and cosy, his good position on the bank of the Rhone river offers the possibility to have a drink outside. The food is very standard but ok if shared with a good company.

Do not go here for food. For drinks, it is ok, terrace is nice though chairs not very comfortable. But the food... We had tapas as a starter, shrimps and calamares, which were oily with little flavour. As a main dish, I ate a very unimaginative salad with cheap dressing. Meat with french fries were also extremely bland. Came with... More

Perfect place for a drink after work or after a swim in the Rhône in summer. Staff is really friendly. I had a burger there once and it was just fine.

By the river. Classy. Alternative. Need I say more? Been here with colleagues after work watching the river and live go by while listening to music. Nice place to chill after a long day ...

Good service and nice setting. The river may however be a bit smelly at times. The inside of the pub is no bad either.

Since moving from its old address on Rue Bovy-Lysberg, Ethno has changed more than its neighbourhood. The bar service is better, the decor new and improved and the ambiance is much more inviting. In the summer there is plenty of outdoor seating, and its location next to the river makes it a great choice after a dip in the Rhône... More
