We found Le cintra on trip advisor and thought we'd give it a try. Our waiter, stefan, was exceptional, spoke very good English and was happy to explain the menu to us. Snails for entree were delicious and hot, the mains, we had lamb, fish and the sausage and were all very good, stefan even offered to reheat one of... More

Traditional cuisine de la région with a nice decor and very professional service. A particularly pleasant feature is that the hall is large, but also very quiet with some tables situated in cosy wood-paneled corners. This providesa good atmosphere to relax enjoy the meal.

Great location in the downtown. Nice old fashioned decoration. The waiter was competent and professional. The food was good (classic dish from Lyon) but too much expensive regarding its simplicity.

Everything that we ordered was very bad executed; the Escargot's were dry, the fish was over done, the fresh water prawns were not fresh; Overall, this was our worst food experience in France.

It's a nice looking restaurant (although i'm not a big fan of fake plants), and the food is very good with fancy and classic items on the menu. The service was not as good, the waiters, although nice and accomodating kept getting the orders wrong and when it was time to pay they realised they forgot to tell us that... More

We stumbled across Le Cintra when looking for something to eat and we were very happy with the find! Our waiter told us that we had arrived on the first night of a new menu but you wouldn't have know it - all our entrees and mains were delicious, as was the cheese we finished with. Recommended!

"Le Cintra" is a wonderful restaurant in the heart of Lyon. We sat on the shady outside terrace and enjoyed the warm summer evening. The restaurant inside provided high quality furniture and a nice atmosphere. But now the food: we had the Gateaux St. Jacques with lobster sauce for starter which was very tasty!! The served bread was warm and... More

Waiter didn't know what he was doing. Brought the wrong order, took it back, fish was cold. Couldn't advise on the wine. Place is stale and American Jazz they have on all the time is outdated and annoying. You can find better place nearby for half of their price.

It was the last day of our holiday and we arrived in Lyon old town from the train station. We wanted to chill with a drink, a meal and some jazz before taking a late tram to the airport. We'd learned earlier in the week that the pub/restaurant Le Cintra has regular jazz gigs, so we went there early, hoping... More

We enjoyed a nice dinner with a bottle of wine and dessert. Price was reasonable. Food was excellent, nice ambiance. Out door sitting. Crowded. The street is quite and even though not in the center of The action, close enough to see people around. Highly recommended!!!

Thank Elespia
