Brasserie Francotte is literally around the corner from the Hotel des Celestins, which makes it a wonderful place for dinner after a long day of flights from the USA. The food and the service were excellent. My wife, who speaks French, had called prior to our departure from home to make a reservation for our group of 8, but although the restaurant could not locate the reservation on their list they seated us in less than 5 minutes, hurrying to rearrange seating for our large group. Everything that folks ordered was excellent, and I particularly was impressed with the fresh oysters and the Beef Tartare.

We arrived to this Brasserie following the TripAdvisor suggestions and the history behind this restaurant. The food was good and also the personnel is really careful of the persons.
We eat an 'entrecôte' and a dessert. The meat was on the average while the desserts were superb.
The wine, easy, was excellent.
The price of the dinner was a little bit higher than the value but it is a choice to take into account if coming to Lyon.

We went here on the basis of tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Imaginative cooking well executed. A la carte or fixed menu. I had 3 course fixed menu at 29.50€, basically choice of meat or fish. Service efficient and pleasant. Good French wine selection. Would certainly recommend.

We had dinner here our first night in Lyon so were very tired from @ 30 hour trip from our home to here. Server spoke excellent English taking that brain work from us. We enjoyed an addictively good hazelnut liquor while deciding on dinner choices. My wife started with a veloute from heaven-perfect cream base with lardon and large, tender scallops-I tasted and could have made a meal of just that and their great country bread. Monk fish next, also yummy. I devoured a delightful pan fried cod, garlic potatoes (yum) and a salad. A good white wine went well with our fishes. We finished with a fluffy chocolate/almond dessert. Tables not too crowded and very clean look to the place. Worthy of your business.
