“Lives up to the hype”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

Modern, interesting, delicious modern french food at an attractive price. I'm from New York and these dishes could appear at the most expensive restaurants here and no one would bat an eye. Its a small place with only one seating so try to book early. The host/waiter is English speaking and very nice. My only complaint is that it's only 3 courses. I would have loved an Amuse or two even for a few more dollars and even the option for more a chef's tasting menu with 4/5 courses etc. But that isn't really a complaint. Just an observation that it is so good that I want more. Prix Fix here is 28 euro and I would have gladly paid 100. Go.

“Beautiful room, excellent service, fine food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is one of the nicest settings for a meal that I have ever experienced -- the room only seats about 24, and is beautiful -- high ceiling, white tablecloths, well-spaced tables, whitewashed stone walls with large mirrors for accents. The service is also excellent. Food was very good (although perhaps did not knock me out the way that the room did) -- I particularly recommend the ravioles with spinach sauce as an entree. I have now been in Lyon for about ten days, and this is one of the best dining experiences that I have had. Well worth hunting for the place.

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

I can only endorse everything that has been written before.This restaurant serves Michelin quality food but at affordable prices. The attention to detail is superb with great presentation by knowledgable staff who are only too happy to explain the menu etc. If you want a memorable meal in Lyon then this restaurant is the one to go to.

“Amazing Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

Michelin-quality food, minus the price tag. Loved everything about this restaurant, from the decor & ambiance to the service to the food. One of the best meals of my France trip (which included two 2-starred Michelin restaurants). I don't think you can find a better value for this type of quality anywhere.

“Excellent restaurant and good wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

We choose the restaurant because of its good ranking at TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed and all our high expectations have been met. Friendly and good service. Food (3-course menu for 30€) was excellent and had some surprising combinations. Good wine choice also by glass and half bottle. Wine served at the right temperature (also the red wine). Very good value for money, also for the wine enthusiast.
