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

Were in Lyon for Euros semi-final with my son. He's a foodie and wanted a typical Lyonaisse meal, found this restaurant on-line. Excellent choice. Very local, very Lyonaisse. Friendly staff especially the manager who is a character. We made friends with people sitting next to us who were related to the manager. Voila! Food not for the faint of mind,... More

All I can say is WOW. The food was superb, true bouchon style with Lyonese specialities. Cream, butter and full flavors. Delicious house red wine in the tiniest wine glasses ever! Sit by the long table outside and make some new local friends. The authenticity strike us hard and it will be a long time until a restaurant will take... More

We were recommended the restaurant by a local wine bar owner otherwise we would never have though to go. Entrance is from an alleyway past the kitchen where the atmosphere was very informal and jovial. Excellent local Lyonais food from a restaurant which has been around for decades. Not to be missed

The chef owner was friendly and he just sits down and tells you what he had made that day. Hes very patient with non french speaker. His english is good enough to tell you. No written menus. Absolutely fantastic no matter what you choose. NOTE you cannot enter through front door. Go in the museum around to the dumpster by... More

When I arrived I was surprised how basic it was but I enjoyed the food more than I expected, it's basically good home cooking but my own home cooking is better so even though the atmosphere was great I'm still only giving it a three. It cost €110 for 3 small courses and a bottle of wine I felt it... More

An unassuming, inexpensive bouchon in the 1st arrondissement which is just fantastic. The menu is handwritten in French, but the chef sits down with you and explains everything in English. 3 courses and a carafe of wine cost around 30 euros. The food is rich, hearty, full of flavour and has a home cooked feel to it. Portions are plentiful.... More
