We went there for the seafood and all the dishes we ordered were very good. Fresh taste for the oyster and beautifully done fish dishes. Servis was friendly too. Reservation recommended.

Arrived by chance about 13:45 and were warmly welcomed. The lunch menu at EUR22.50 for three courses was great value and the food was delicious! Trendy interior and full of locals. Thoroughly recommend!

We spent 2 days in Lyon and were twice in this restaurant, very very fresh simple and tasty seafood. (1) For oysters better go to the market, but also fresh here, just choice is less. We ate them here anyway :) (2) For starters - tuna tartar, Jols seafood mix were good. (3) Main courses - codfish with purée are... More

Often full for lunch and diner as it is the seafood hangout of the local living in this upper area of Lyon. Perfect soup fish, seafood and fish. Fast and efficient service.

As a main course we took the chef's suggestion of the day, which was an excellent Saint Pierre fish (John Dory) from Bretagne. The fish soup was very nice also. The crevettes entree meant a lot of shell pealing (serving it like this is probably a sign of freshness, but a lot of work!). Nice to be able to dine... More

I went to the Jols restaurant which is located at 30 Quai Saint-Antoine, Lyon (According to their webpage, they have three stores). I had oysters as a starter and "octopus a la plancha" as a main. The waiter told me the octopus dish is a new menu. Oysters were fresh and delicious, and the octopus dish was superb! It was... More

Start your experience by wandering down the street market mid morning. Everything you would expect when it comes to food in Lyon is on the stands at the market. Makes sure you arrive before noon, when the stalls disappear, the vendors are gone and the street is swept and cleaned. Once you've wandered the market, simply cross the street to... More

We enjoy seafood here. Fresh oysters and fishes. Decoration is bright and lively. There is English menu which made us a lot easier to try more dishes.

We arrived late in the evening, lots of other places had stopped taking people in. We were welcomed in excellent English (our best attempt at French seen through in seconds) and taken to a table overlooking the kitchen. This is an open restaurant with the chef and his team on view. Taramsalata followed by sea bream was excellent. Staff chatty... More
