We were my partner and I on the 30th of December to have dinner. It's a nice and attractive place, but then the problems started. He has three waiters, a sympathetic woman, a crazy oldman and one unexperienced young waiter We chose the menu of...More

What a nice place to get out of the cold on a late December night and feel - for a moment - like a local. We even had the protesters and gendarmes come past, so we felt positively Lyonnaise! A lovely bar with nice staff...More

Lesson learned - restaurants in prime locations (eg beside cathedral square) seem to have attitude that service and food quality doesn’t matter. Service was slow, rude, charged for a beer that was immediately returned due to not being what was ordered; food items not to...More

Well located with nice waister, but not too much place to eat with small tables. The menu is typically from Lyon and the food is good/tasty. Better to arrive early (like noon) to be served efficiently. The restroom is ugly... A bit expensive but correct...More
