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

I ate in this place twice during my one week stay in Lyon, it was a really enjoyable experience, the menu de jour is value for money, fishes are fresh, you do not even need to make a reservation due to the location which is not in the city centre.

A get-away from the traditional restaurants Jols is serving nice fish and seafood in an old market hall. The wine of the month had a good price-value and the rascasse served was very nice. Stass generally friendly and in our case knowledgeable. The remake of the hall is a little too much, I would prefer a more older look. All... More

Great seafood in a nice environment. The former Market Hall has been converted into a restaurant focusing on fish and seafood. Service is OK, but it would be nice to have some more attention.

This fish restaurant is really nice and serves fresh sea foods and fishes. The fishes were quite fresh and well cooked. In french cousin, the dressing is very important to make the meal perfect. This restaurant prepares them well.
