The old town is extremely busy with visitors and crammed with tourist restaurants so it's easy to get a bad meal. This restaurant has a good balance between catering for non-French speakers and offering an authentic experience. The staff are helpful and communicative, the service...More

nice dinner in this restaurant, not like in so many tourists traps in this area. The food was good and service too. Nothing to complain about.

Decided to try this restaurant as the queue was out the door, so we presumed it must be good. We ordered two steaks (for €23.50 each) which were not only the most gristly pieces of meat I've ever eaten, but were also the cheapest cut...More

The staff are very polite. The starters are good. But!!! The beef was over-cooked, like eating rubber. The dessert is fine. I guess the over-cooking issue is because there were too many people on that day. So they can't take care on all the beefs.

Food was nice, service ok. Kept the water and bread coming which was good. Large servings. Can't complain about the place but still fairly average in my opinion.

I am amazed by the overall rating for Le Comptoir du Boeuf, I must have missed something that's for sure. We went here for lunch as my husband wanted to try a Salad Lyonnaise and it was on the menu of this establishment, so that...More
