Fantastic food, warm relaxed atmosphere with a very engaging host. The menu ophtions were offered in a very clear and entertaining presentation. Our limited French was not a problem. Food and service were excellent. We really enjoyed conversations with our fellow diners. Great value for money.

We had a fantastic time dining at Le Musee over the weekend. Make sure to book as the place was very full and you don't want to miss out. The owner came over and sat with us to discuss the menu, he was extremely helpful and charismatic, he had us in fits of laughter. As there was four of us... More

We had an overnight stop in Lyon on a river cruise and chose Le Musee from reviews on Trip Advisor. After asking a local for directions he actually walked with us to find the restaurant and phoned ahead to make a booking. It was a busy Friday night and the local was able to cajole the owner to make space... More

Our hotel was only a block or two from this restaurant. We wandered up to the curbside tables around 12:30, a wonderfully energetic woman in a white apron greeted us, and seated us alongside four French locals. If the locals eat there, it's a safe bet you made a good choice. A man came out, also in a white apron,... More

Remarkable; a gift of a recommendation! Wonderful meal and great atmosphere--brilliant big mirror on the wall so nobody turns their back and all can both enjoy the full surroundings and atmosphere. Owner and chef is simply lovely; such a happy fellow, colorful and so much fun when describing the menu and taking our orders himself (am French and husband speaks... More

If you're looking for an awesome hearty Lyonnaise meal, this is the right place for you. The owner and staff are so nice and truly make eating there a one-of-a-kind experience. My husband and I were lucky enough to get a seat on a Friday night without reservations so if you're planning a trip to Lyon, do make a reservation... More

They were booked out for the weekend but managed to swish us in for lunch on Saturday. The place was bustling when we arrived so packed of locals and laughter. We were greeted by the owner who gave us a complimentary glass of wine as we waited for our table to be cleared. No menu. The owner explained to us... More

Combination of great hospitality (the waiter made us laugh so much), and truly amazing food. Make sure to reserve a seat in advance, and also to order the fish soufflé, the taste of it was, wow, I have no words for it.

This Buchon Lyonnaise is tucked away - and well worth finding. Everyone's seated close together and on a hot evening there's a strong spirit of congeniality. My warm mushroom salad starter was delicious. My quenelle was soft and fluffy, and (as was everything) served with potato gratin and green beans. They offer an excellent value menu with lots of choice... More

A true example of how the owner/manager can really make your experience. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived to the time we left, with very full bellies! The food is very Lyonaisse, I really had no idea what to order but just went with the owners recommendations and was not disappointed. The rich, full flavours... More
