We popped in for a quick lunch on our first day in Lyon and were very happy with our experience. The food was delicious and, by the looks of things, the chef changes the formule regularly as they were hand-written in the menu book. Our meals were clearly choc-full of tasty, fresh produce and the service was prompt and smiley.... More

It's these type of restaurants make Lyon live up to its name as the capital of gastronomy of France. Owners were very helpful with English speaking. 100 euro for an unforgettable full courses meal with wine.

Delicious traditional French fare in a friendly little restaurant. The cod and duck were cooked to perfection.

If you blink you might miss this restaurant and what a shame that would be . The atmosphere inside makes you feel like your at home dining with friends and family. The service is welcoming and friendly. The food is very good and I recommend the specials of the day or anything on the menu - you will not be... More

Rounded by so many good Bouchons, Albert has but a bit higher standards, yet not being "fine dinning" restaurant. The service was excellent and they spoke very good English, since my French is still quite poor... My rabbit terrine as a starter was a good choice. Main course calf liver with artichoke purée was really well done and my dessert:... More

Excellent restaurant, wonderful welcome from a charming waitress who knows her "métier" well. Food perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. I particularly liked the enormous sized serviettes which ensure that you will not get any splashes on your clothing! Learned that the curiously sized 46cl carafe of wine, known as a "pot", is a Lyon tradition resulting from a tax imposed... More

We stumbled upon this unassuming little spot on a quiet street as we looked for a place to eat before heading up La Croix-Rousse. We sat outside on their small deck but the interior was beautifully decorated. Friendly service, helpful to English speaking visitors. Simple lunch menu but great food, our best meal in our short stay in Lyon.

Chez Albert is a great little bistro set in a row of cafes, wine bars and restaurants. There was a varied menu catering for all tastes and budgets and our waitress was really helpful. The place has a lively, but not noisy atmosphere and we enjoyed eating on the terrace looking out onto the square.

We went to Lyon in search of great food and we were not disappointed. Chez Albert was a highlight. The dining room is charming and the service is outstanding - attentive but not stuffy. Stephanie, our waitress, was warm and friendly as were all of other staff. The food and wine were excellent. We enjoyed seasonal but not too rich... More
