“Nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We were wandering past and made the great decision to stop for lunch. The 16 Euro Menu de Jour gave us three courses, all fresh and beautifully presented. Excellent value coupled with good and friendly service.

“Great food & service with an excellent view over Lyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We had dinner with friends on the outdoor terrace of the restaurant, overlooking Lyon. We had tuna tataki starters that were perfectly cooked and divine, followed by lamb mains with a delicious mint/yogurt sauce. We had a chocolate dessert that was rich but not too sweet. The wine selection was reasonable, and the menu prices were set at 26 euros for dinner. The food was fresh and tasty, and the service was friendly with good timing. A nice surprise and a restaurant we will certainly visit again soon.

“Great food, but make a reservation!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I went here on a recent trip to Lyon. It was highly recommended by the lovely couple we were staying with so my friend and I decided to give it a try one night for dinner. We walk in and the hostess almost laughs at the fact that we want to be seated for dinner on Friday without a reservation.

Excussssseeee us! We made a reservation the following day for lunch, and the restaurant was still packed! Definitely make sure to make a reservation if you want to try this place out.

The food, however, I thought was excellent. I had white fish which was covered in a delicious sauce whose name I could not begin to pronounce. It was accompanied by a lovely sweet potato puree. Definitely one of my favorite meals of the trip!

“Good value for empty purses!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

The food is good, well executed, nicely presented. The service is kind and polite. What do you expect for as cheap as 16 euros for a lunch menu? We had very nice dishes and a good glass of wine. We were very happy with that! It was above our expectations. Usually we went to starred places, it was just a small resto on our pathway. :)

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Very interesting place with nice atmosphere and very nice staff. Due the fact that this restaurant is recommended in Michelin guide we decided to go there for a dinner, but it has turned out that this was not a good idea. Despite the helpfulness of the waitress and adequate presentation of dishes the food was tasteless and nothing special. Starters were good, main courses a disaster (a fish fillet that tasted nothing like a fish and a tough and chewy veal in beef soup) and desserts a real dissapointment.
