This is a terrific experience of a Lyonnais bouchon. Stop in the day before and book for the following night, and don't come for lunch - the food is heavy, dinner fare. The place is too small to accommodate many walk-ins on the day itself, as we learned. It's got a Michelin bib gourmand listing, and no surprise. We loved... More

On the first night of our first visit to Lyon, we could not have had a better introduction to Lyonnaise food. We did not book but were shown to a table in the back room which soon filled up with other diners. We started with kir communard while we studied the menu. Eventually we decided to start with saucisson and... More

We felt very fortunate to have secured a reservation here (done WELL in advance). There were a few hopefuls waiting at the door when the restaurant opened at 7:30, and they were turned away. Charming little spot with eclectic decor. Food was interesting, but we were not entirely clear on the proper approach to some of the items being served.... More

After traveling in France for 2 months, my husband and I think this was one of the top meals we had! I had the lunch pre-fixed meal and my husband ordered 3 meals off the menu. All were delicious and incredible (including the house wine)! I would return again!

Perfect experience in Lyon. Enjoyed their 3 course Prix fixe menu with local specialities. The sausage and potato appetizer could have served as a delicious meal for me, but the food just kept coming. The quenelle was the best we had, and the sausage main course was very good. Service was amazing with the servers moving in a choreographed dance... More

We were welcomed so kindly, and fed so well! The chef came to visit with us and others in the establishment. Everything we ate was simply wonderful. It is a very small restaurant, so reservations are highly recommended. We were there on a Tuesday evening and there were no other tables to be had. Excellent food.

Made a reservation for Le Garet in advance as read some reviews about it getting very busy - this was the case, our meal being a lunch on a Thursday and the place was packed, mainly with locals not tourists (like me!) and turned away the people in front of us who had not booked. We had the set menu... More

We were there our first night in Lyon and chose this restaurant because we wanted to try something local of high quality and several people pointed in that direction. The service was great from the first moment where we were seated upstairs and the food was really delicious - not fine dining - but made the way it should be... More

A lovely warm welcome in this old Bouchon. Old wooden decor, it soon was packed out on a cold weekday evening. No chance of a table without booking. Huge portions, dishes explained, great service, reasonable wine and very large digestive measures. I had the 29e set menu. The saucisson entree was a meal in itself. My husband ordered a couple...

On a work trip to Lyon, my Lyonaisse boss recommended this restaurant as one of the best in Lyon. I didn't go to enough places to confirm this, but it did not disappoint. The salade de cochonailles was delicious, I had the quenelle which was also excellent. Wine was great, cheese and dessert were also delicious. Atmosphere was good, service... More
