“Fine dining at a reasonable price in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

I could not recommend this restaurant more highly. I have eaten at Restaurant Albert many times, and have never had a bad meal. The food is always delicious and the menu changes regularly. The service is warm and welcoming. They will provide a menu in English, and are very helpful for foreign visitors. The price is more expensive than many of the other restaurants in Lyon, but the food is worth it.

The restaurant is located on a small tree filled square, and is very atmoshpheric. You feel like you are dinning in a small village square rather than in the heart of France's second city.

The restaurant only opens Monday to Friday, and reservations are essential, especially if there are more than two of you. Reserve early in the summer if you want a seat on the terrace.

“No local restaurant has evolved with as much mind and soul as Restaurant chez Albert !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

After visiting this awesome tiny restaurant years ago it soon became my default place to impress food-loving friend/visitors. Albert and his staff are just fabulous friendly people. Esquisite food and wine.
Chez Albert is "The" sincerest,most ambrosial facets of our dining culture right now in Lyon.
I highly recommend this place!

“Merci Albert!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2011

I went to this restaurant last night. I have been spending some weeks in Lyon, i have been trying different restaurants in the city. The 'Bouchon' in the city i discovered are not really my thing, fat served with fat...
Last night walking around the city looking at menus me and my partner stumbled upon Chez Albert. It was a Wednesday evening. We didn't have a reservation but there were two tables available. What made us go inside, was the very tempting menu, the well presented decor and the price... 33 Euro for a full menu of starter, main course, cheese and dessert.
The waiters were very warm and naturally friendly. There were fresh flowers all over the restaurant and we were excited to see all sorts of yummy looking plates walking past us.
Out of all of the restaurants i have been to in Lyon, this is certainly the best. We had a wonderful evening and felt very satisfied at the end. Altogether we payed 80 Euro for two menus and a delicious 'pot' of wine. Each part of the meal was very well presented, we were well and truely stuffed as we left!

Chez Albert is a fine restaurant where you can have a decent meal for not so much, the waiters and waitresses are very nice and the food deserves that you try everything !
