“late lunch”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

On the recommendation of a friend we decided to give it a try, despite being located in such a touristic area. service was some waiters a bit smelly. some of the ingredients were not on the
'maxi' salad - in particular the ones we wanted! A good restaurant tells you this and lets you consider changing your order.

“I think actually better than average but not a very good....”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

We had problems with our accommodation in Lyon which meant that we were very tired and had not really researched where we wanted to eat. We were in a very picturesque area, cobbled streets etc and there were lots of places to eat in the area.
We were invited into the restaurant by a waiter who explained that there were discounts for eating early. We decided to take a punt and were seated outside.
The set menus were okay, we both had French onion soup - tasty but could be hotter and not as good as ours. I went for the fish, which came with rice and a tomato sauce. Was served hot and again, quite tasty. hubby had sausage, potato and red wine sauce. The sausage was very meaty, more like a pate really - again okay, hot and tasty. Only 1 potato served and no veg. We both had ice cream for afters which was very yummy. Bread and water came with meal. We chose a 46cl carafe of red wine and overall we paid 27.7 E. The meal, service and location exceeded our expectations and when we got back to the hotel, we read reviews which said stay away from this area, as it is a tourist trap. Yes, I agree it was very touristy, but we were not trapped and overall had a pleasant experience.
Would not go back but there aren't many places that we would go back to eat.

“Solid, cheap french food”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Good selection of menu choices, plenty of a la carte, but the set menus are good as well. One of the busiest places in Vieux Lyon on a Sunday night, and offers a 30% discount if you arrive pre 7.30pm. Waiters were attentive and let us stay late to finish our wine. Food was nice for what you pay. Possibly not the best restaurant in the city but on our experience it was fine.

“Discount for early eaters”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Excellent kitchen in "bouchon" style.. For early eaters (Northern Europeans) the house offers a 30% discount on the menus...very competitive...for le Vieux Lyon...

Lousy food in the heart of old town.There is many better choices and I would never go there again.Food was very lousy and the service marginal at best.
