We came across this restaurant by chance after being turned away from another restaurant in the same street. Look for a bright green-fronted restaurant at the beginning of the little street, rue du Boeuf. Let me add that this neighborhood (Vieux Lyon) is worth a visit because of its old-world atmosphere with narrow, cobbled streets. Les Retrouvailles is run by a husband and wife team - he is in the kitchen (it is an open kitchen so it is fun to watch him) and she does everything else with charm and energy. With the husband and wife team and relatively casual and cosy atmosphere I almost felt like I was eating in their home! The menu was just what we wanted after some very heavy meals in Lyon - this is lighter fare, tasty and well-priced. Everything was very good and the desserts were excellent - they are on display on a long rectangular table running the length of the restaurant. Highly recommended!
