We took a drink at Diplomatico but the ambiance was so boring and service so cold that we didn't stay to eat. The tables are crammed together, very uncomfortable especially when your neighbors refuse to budge to let you in to your table. Well it's not hard to forget you are in France. Ordered a Martini Bianco as it is called everywhere in world. Waiter played dumb pretending he had no clue and that I had just ordered the weirdest thing on the planet before finally saying 'oh a martini blanc'. My friends had expensive cocktails... Which might as well have been mocktails as there was NO alcohol inside. Very expensive and the staff are too stingy to even serve any snacks or peanuts or anything. Absolutely pretentious place... Both the staff and clientele without having anything amazing to brag about.

.....In Lyon to have an aperitif, or stay for a great meal. We ate for two at €40 and were happy. The view was great, the service was good, as was the location. The restaurant has placed a set of beach style chairs just underneath their waster mist system, this is a must after a hot day of touring or if you just want to cool down and relax. I would happily go again!

We arrived into Lyon late on French National day by pure chance and were lucky enough to find this gem. The celebration fireworks were organised for 10:30 so we really wanted a seat with a view. The staff were superb! They were full but laid on a new table centre of house out front for a magnificent view over the river and the fireworks. I had the Foie Gras and prawn risotto which were just exquisite all washed down with a bottle of the local wine. A real experience for the memory banks.
The next morning we went back for a beautiful breakfast before hitting the road again.
Thank you Diplomatico.

Very friendly and helpful with French menu. Great patio seating with very nice scenic view. The food and service very good. We were their first American customers since they have been open for about two months.
