First dinner in Lyon, I decided to visit because it is a member of the Bouchon Lyonnais. The food was good as were the staff, but can not compare to our dinner the following night which cost the same, had far more courses and was better cooked and far more traditional. Search for Chez Paul.

Read a great review of this restaurant in the guardian and decided to try it. This is the place to be adventurous and order the set menu. There are a few options but we had a duck entree, tripe for a main (something I would never order at home) was a really surprisingly great dish. Chicken liver ravioli for the... More

Was looking forward to a meal here but turned up with my family 2 nights in a row to find it shut, despite their website saying it was open. Disappointing

Excellent experience, beautiful historic interior, traditional no frills but tasty food, good wine. Decent value. Family owned with mother cooking and son taking care of guests. Menu in French but he will explain in English. Other diners are mix of French and travelers. Retains an authentic feel. Would recommend.

a real bouchon, with authentic cuisine lyonaise, not another of these tourist restaurant pretending to be a bouchon, this one is a real one. It has been in Lyon for ages. The decoration is as old as the restaurant which brings even more authenticity and charm. I recommend it

I'm not one to try offal or anything really odd but I wanted to try traditional Lyonnaise cuisine and it was delicious. Make sure you try the Tête de veau (calfs head), also tried the duck and rabbit which was cooked to perfection. Delicious, can't wait to go back.

Knowing my love of gastronomy of all kinds my French hosts kindly took me to lunch at a regionally typical family owned restaurant; mother is head chef and runs the kitchen and son is front of house and head waiter. Decor from the 30's, atmosphere from 'forever', it was quintessentially French and wonderful with it. Local red Beaujolais with the... More

Lovely example of authentic Lyonnaise cuisine with a home cooked feel; good variety on the menu, host explained everything in English and service was very efficient. Highly recommend.

Booked a table for 2 on a weekday night. The place was small and fully packed so might be worth booking in advance. Ordered the 3 course menu, including a duck pate, tripe and cheese. Duck pate was good but nothing to shout about. The tripe was really good, cooked to the right tenderness and was very flavourful.
