We were staying in Lyon for 5 nights and had a family recommendation to dine at this vouch on. We were glad that we booked, by dropping in at lunchtime while looking around the Hotel de Ville and Opera. Even on a Tuesday night, many passers by missed out on a great meal. The two of us each had one... More

Our local friends invited us to this restaurant with our kids. The chef was helpful in cooking something for the kids. I ate the best "tablier de sapeur" I've had in a long time, all in a very enjoyable authentic setting.

We had been wanting to taste some local food and kept hearing about the Salade Lyonnaise and with the help of one of the forum experts we were led to this delight. We started with a light white wine, which was refreshing and some pork nibbles - very tasty. The young chef spoke some English which was very handy for... More

If authenticity required a new dictionary definition Dr Johnson could have done no better than post a vine of this bouchon. Small dining room with an instantly comfortable atmosphere, with just the right amount of tat adorning the walls, including a sign belittling English cuisine. The supersized chef (always a good sign) frequently appearing from the kitchen to explain the... More

We had a delightful lunch of this very basic old French style food . We had a duck with pumpkin dish, some andouille of tripe , filet of herring with potatoes and it was all really good .

The restaurant is very small with very limited menu. I ordered Tripe and my wife had fish. There was nothing special about the dishes. Both I and my wife could not finish them. We ordered Plum in wine for desert and we think it came from can. The service was not good either. We definitely would not recommend this restaurant.

This a fantastic small restaurant in typical Lyon style and food. We had the special menu for the day. Two of us had lamb shank and two fish. The starter was fresh salad with duck hearts. The tarte pralines should not be missed.

Booked a table in advance. When showing up we got a lovely greeting and were seated next to some lovely locals we had a great time chatting a bit with. Both mains and desserts were excellent and the whole evening will be remembered for a long time. Thank you!

Thank plmhns
