Our Chef patron was standing at the door to greet us by name when we arrived. He has an utterly charming and boyish enthusiasm about his food and sweeps up the whole room into it. You cannot help but be entranced by the whole unpretentious, understated but genuinely marvelous experience. Dinner was of course wonderful. Too many superlatives? They deserve them!

“A Great, Serene Restaurant on a Busy Street”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our experience at Le Potiquet was fabulous. The restaurant, which is on a busy street with many restaurants, is elegant and serene. The dining room is not big, but the tables are nicely spaced and it is quiet and elegant. Aurélian, the chef, takes your orders himself and is very present in the dining room during the meal. The service is unobtrusive, professional and excellent. The food, at least in our experience, is fabulous. The best meal we've had in Lyon so far...and we've been here for a couple of months and have eaten at a lot of restaurants. Le Potiquet certainly deserves a star from Michelin.

“Aurelien suculus est”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

If U visit Lyon don't think Bouchon cover only Wine bottels, Bouchon are small traditional Restaurants in this old Gaulle town.
Aurelien was a roman emperor but in LE POTIQUET he's really Top Chief, with new and traditional cooking world. Only one think to remember RESERVATION, these restaurants have feew tables, many JP US UK tourists but most of them are culinary observers for Magazines, News papers...You'll feel in Bouchon, the one in Michelin guide French one.
Very good table, good and fresh cook, nice and original tastes, warm and charming dinning hall, simple and soft decoration...lets Aurelien choose for you, he'll do the best for our business table. French wines, french cook, french team, one of the Best Bouchon, but please Aurelien don't change stay in this way of life enjoying friends, customers, like your relatives.

“Excellent if you are in the mood”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Excellent food, prepared in a beautiful style. The perfect place to take a close friend of lover for a nice evening of dining and talkng. It is slightly noisy because the walls are stone, and the service (though impecible0 is slightly over the top.
