This bouchon (typical Lyonnais restaurant) is set on two floors in the old town. This is a good selection of quality local dishes and the service we received from Edouard was excellent. The restaurant is also clearly family-friendly. The house wine by the pichet/pot is also good and reasonably priced. I recommend booking in advance.

We were three of us here on conference who came here highly recommended. The starter - Foie Gras was splendid, however the main course beef was cooked too much. Red wine was right temperature. Cheese for dessert was special - with two cheeses more in direction cottage cheese & cream cheese.

The best steak I've ever had. My first try of escargot and the tart was delicious. Amazing food, wine and service! Can't fault this place. A great contemporary take on the Lyon Bouchon. Thanks for the wonderful experience :) Devilish dessert also, yum!!

They have delicious food and they did a great job with the interiors. We went there 3-4 times during summer and autumn, and it's the first place we call for dinner/lunch when we are in Lyon :).

Le Tire Bouchon is a fantastic dining experience. Food is beautifully presented and delicious! I had the house wine, which was a very good Cotes-du-Rhone. It is excellent value for money and certainly worth paying a few more Euros for a quality meal.

Quaint little place, nice atmosphere. 100% classic French food. Great location, price is good as well. Wait staff customer service could be better.

This place is great if you want Authentic Lyon French food but with a contemporary touch. We where seated upstairs in a renovated space and well attended to by attentive staff. The food was amazing and well presented, each dish looking like a piece of art! Given the quality of the food, the pricing was very reasonably. Good wine list... More

We had beautiful food here. A more refined take on the Bouchon Lyonnais cuisine. What's more, it is extremely reasonably priced. We paid 80 euros for three courses each and two bottles of very nice red wine. Nice friendly atmosphere too. Thoroughly recommend it.

Stopped into this place amongst all the others because it seemed a bit calmer, with more of an inside that outside feel, a plus given the plethora of smokers outside of most places. The food was tasty, entrees huge, deserts delicious, and service friendly. Plenty of decent choices for the standard 3-course menu.

Quality and care. Amongst numerous bouchon clones this felt different. Small place and careful service. Very good.
