We were supposed to meet by 930pm but my friends had to change metro thrice so we were only seated after 10pm. Our waitress initially didn't seem too thrill but after dispensing us with menu and bread basket,she was all smiles and friendly. The four of us opted for the menu fixe,starters being two different kinds of salads,mains were roast... More

We have been there a couple of times and last June we were very disappointed. A very long wait just to get the appetisers and glass of wine. We had to chase the waiter for bread and water which annoyed us. The food which used to be very good was average (one dish was so salty we couldn't eat and... More

We were invited by our local guest for dinner. Reach on schedule and were seated promptly. Drinks came right away. Placed the order for food and waited. Continued waiting for almost an hour. Even our French host was frustrated by the long wait. Food when it came was mediocre! Disappointing and not worth the wait.

The location is okay. The staff reassuredly surly. The cost ridiculously expensive. The food was prepared and presented to perfection. My only complaint, they served my St. Emillion grand cru cold. Otherwise a great culinary experience.

We were drawn to this restaurant as it was busy and looked like a really nice atmosphere. There was an English menu available which explained the dishes well. It is quite expensive but the food we had was delicious. We only had one course (with some sides), but it was a really tasty pork rump dish with risotto. The desserts... More

Had a very enjoyable lunch on the terrace. Service excellent as was the ambience (restaurant housed in the old railway station which gives the place stature and character). I had steak with risotto 'iberica' - delicious. Will certainly go again but next time for dinner to get the full experience.

We booked this restaurant on recommendation and I'm so glad we did! If you are in Lyon it is a must. A converted railway station, buzzy atmosphere, fabulous staff and perfect food! Don't miss it!

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
