A Parisian friend recommended we visit this charming little place during our five nights in Lyon. And we booked immediately via the Fork website.
Several days later we took a call from the owner/ manager to change the date as it was closed for summer break for several more days - the language barrier made for an awkward phone conversation. Luckily, we were able swap another booking - and thank goodness! This was one of our favourite meals in the Gastronomic capital of France!
We had Escargot, Lyonnaise salad (the most delectable version I have found during my four visits to Lyon!), steak tartare, a creamy soufflé/quenelle, and a blackberry tart in custard for dessert.
The restaurant is located a short, steep walk from the Museum of Fine Arts, and features gorgeous views, very friendly and accommodating staff. A charming selection of wines, and live music.
I heartily recommend, and will be back when I'm next in town!

Thank Natrasher

Mmmm. We had a most excellent sampling of local favourites such as grenouilles, escargot, gambas, and duck. It was a very authentic local restaurant off the beaten track with a brilliant view from the top floor! Not much English speaking, which was fine because we are French speakers. Desert was excellent. Their local win selection is excellent and reasonably priced. Merci pour la nuit vraiment sympas!

Retuning to Lyon after approximately 5 years, many of my favourite restaurants had either closed or changed hands, thus I had to rely on the advice of friends to find somewhere to spend New Year's Eve with a friend. They recommended "Au Temps Perdu" in the Pentes de la Croix-Rousse region of Lyon.

It was an excellent choice. The restaurant is quite small with places for about 30 people I would guess. Decor was relatively neutral in that there was nothing that now, one week later, springs readily to mind.

The menu, while not extensive, was very well selected. The service from the moment we arrived could not have been better: friendly, relaxed while attentive without becoming too much.

The wine selection was also not extensive but certainly more than adequate. There were the usual house wine selections plus 4-5 wines only available in bottles.

Prices were pretty standard for Lyon. Our bill ran to €120 for two people including tip.

Overall a great night out with excellent food in a friendly atmosphere. I am sure I will return when next in Lyon. Recommended...

My friend recommended me to try this place to have a dinner. She said that it's something special about it. And sure is! Great food, staff, music, atmosphere, ... I really felt great there. It's quite small all together, but it worked for me perfectly. Prices are also very accessible.
