I found that the food was just okay for the price we paid. Service is trying to be classy but it end up beeing snobish. The headwaiter seems to rule by fear which make every other server look scared and in a rush... No time to explain the menu or make recomendation.

Ate at this restaurant with my husband and a friend. Was recommended as this restaurant is one of the best in Lyon. Good ambience. We sat outside. While inside was well decorated and there is even a small train running all around the restaurant. (Around the roof). I had escargot for appetizer, salmon steak as my main dish, my husband... More

An OK ambiance, rather long waiting times, but quite decent brasserie style food. Good for a family outing or casual business meal.

We ate the three course menu of the day. Very good food and service. However, the waiters' knowledge of English was variable.

I have been several times to this brasserie, belonging to the famous Chef Bocuse network. I like the crowded and noisy ambient, the open air kitchen, and the counter. Food is ok, certainly not top for Lyon's standard, but what is really annoying is the service, which may vary from time to time from excellent (extra welcome snack, good waiters... More

This is a classical French brasserie, par of the Paul Bocuse chain. I ate here some years ago, but realized I hadn't reviewed it. I would like to review it now, because I would like to give it 5 stars. The interior is unusual - there is a toy train that runs around the top of the restaurant near the... More

I used to dine at Brasserie L'Est some years ago and was happy to see that it is as good as I remembered when I returned to Lyon recently. The service was fast, efficient and friendly, however one has to take into consideration that the service culture in France and Europe can be different to the US or UK and... More

This is a charming restaurant, busy until late at night, fun and with a unique touch. Food is traditional French with some Eastern inspiration. Memorable double fois gras and Maigret de canard, among the other dishes.

We love this restaurant. It is superb. If we go to France then we go to Lyon just to eat here. It is utterly beautiful food and service. We do not speak French except to say thank you and the usual greetings. It has never been a problem. We have never had to wait because of this. We have always... More
