This is one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. I shared the chateaubriand with a colleague and had it served medium rare. I was slightly disappointed when the waitress told me they didn't serve fries but I shouldn't have been. I was brought out some incredible potato/cheese concoction which was superb. The steak was the reddest I have... More

This restaurant is full every night. Reserve ahead if you can. They speak perfect English. Very very welcoming. Excellent food cooked and served with great care. It's not cheap but you get large good portions and beautifully presented. Good selection of wine and good advice given to help. Wonderful deserts in their refrigerated display cabinet.

This is an excellent "lyonnaise" bristot, full of character and a friendly service. Food is classical Lyon style food (black pudding etc etc) with some typical Genevoise dished this is the place for you! Do not expect to get the "light" option here, serving are big and food is cooked in the old fashion way and with passion. Good wine... More

Had a business dinner, hopefully we reserved, it was packed full. It's a "restaurant lyonnais", so the menu proposes some strange french food such as pigs foot, duckling pate and more. But they also have great pieces of meat served with different sauces. They do not serve fries ! But that's Ok because their "gratin de pommes de terre" is... More

This is an excellent local bistro with beautiful retro interior decoration, friendly service and very good to excellent Lyon-style cuisine. Portions are generous, and if you go for a business lunch, you may have to opt for a siesta afterwards, as the specialities such as 'boudin noir', 'onglet à l'échalote' are not on the light side. But they are good... More

Fantastic interior that matches the food and it's quality. Excellent service but must reserve ahead of time. I'd call the kitchen "lyonnaise style" and meet is often served with red-wine sauce. No french fries but menus often served with an excellent gratin. A good choice of wines at an affordable price (for Switzerland).

Great food at this french-style bistrot, friendly and efficient service. Compared to the entrecote couronne a few doors down, this restaurant is a bit more spacious, though not open on certain evenings. Good option for business lunches or dinners or with guests from out of town.

This is a simple charming restaurant, a typical Lyon-style French restaurant. Not very expensive, has a good price meals. The service is very good, they are very polite. The food is fabulous.
