L'Argot has the best steaks and meat dishes in all of Lyon. The restaurant is lively and loud, and everyone seems to have a good time dining. The restaurant is also a butcher shop so the meats are freshly cut and on display. Service is...professional and food comes fast. The pate en croute (two types) are also best in Lyon. The wine list is complete and full of affordable Rhone wines. I recommend you have a reservation or you will not be seated due to the popularity of the restaurant. I will most definitely return.More

It's a butcher with a dining area. Very nice concept and a very nice selection of dry aged meats. They come with you to the aging fridge and explain to you the differences between the meats and cuts . You can also choose a degustation...of different pieces if you are a few people, that way you can sample meat from spain, france, switzerland, wagyu and many more. They also have a nice selection of wines to accompany their meals and great service by competent people. The "restaurant" is quite small and extremely popular so you must reserve to make sure that you can have a place to eat. It's not easy also to finally get a hold of them in order to make that reservation. You get to taste the actual meat since it's not served with sauces, you get it the juice that it was cooked in. Very nice meal and cool concept.More

Impressive! I never taste such a good meat before. It was so good that we decided to order a piece of wagyu after a first set of charcuterie and entrecôte. Unreasonable, but so good! I love this place. I think we ll go there again...when we ll go south (to try the salers).More

A one-off, top quality restaurant for a reasonable price. On the downside, we had to wait for 20mins before somebody even came up to our table to order drinks. Just as we were about to stand up and leave it finally happened. Also take note...that it quickly becomes very, very noisy inside. Would suggest to not go during busy times. And don't expect any salads :-)More

One of the Concept - Restaurants where you can buy or eat the chosen kind of meat. Good value for money (althugh not cheap, as that's not a fast-food). Good wines, kind service. WIll be back when again in Lyon.

Receptionist/cook/waitress on our night staying at the Campanile was extremely pleasant and courteous. We wanted a comfortable, not too expensive restaurant close to the motorway. We got exactly what we wanted.

I think the prices and wine list is ok but the mear was not really served hot rather warm. With mostly lots of fat in it I dont like this at a steakhouse. The cooking also was not really very good, ı think the need...a master on top of the grill.More

My wife and I called in and made a reservation for dinner last Friday evening whilst we were in Lyon for a long weekend. The fact that on arrival we were greeted by name and the usual Gallic kiss got us off to a flying...start. We would advise ringing or calling in as many people were turned away, the place was full to the rafters when we finished. This is quite simply a meat eaters paradise with cuts that we are all familiar with up to those we may have only read about. The chefs sharing platter as a starter would on some days be enough for a meal. My wife chose the onglet and I had a "coeur de sirloin", both were up there amongst the best flavoured and cooked meat we have ever had. Perhaps, just the tiniest of disappointments, the accompaniment was macaroni cheese. Now there are only two things I just cannot eat that is one and the other is banana. Luckily macaroni cheese is my wife's favourite, so she was in double heaven. Pot de vin rouge very good. We would go out of our way to eat here again.More
