Very poor service, over-done Bresse chicken, expensive car ride (this is outside the city cemtre), uncharming, just Bocouse milking his brand value. Stay away!

It is very large and it's fun to watch them cook "live". We had the menu, and it was just OK, not very special and a little bit on the salty side. It is indeed not expensive (26 euros) but from such a famous restaurant, I would have expected better.

A very busy restaurant, don't go there if you want a calm and romantic evening. The food is not very complicated but made out of very good ingredients and you have full view of the kitchen. A nice experience.

Arrived and got received by a very unfriendly hostess. I think as we were foreigners she didn't even pay much attention to us, I think that is disrespectful, as she treated locals on a very friendly manner. We sat at the bar to grab a drink before dinner, and no one seemed to acknowledge us.
Atmosphere was great, the decor is very modern and the place is huge, they seemed to have too little staff to handle such a big restaurant.
Once we got seated, we never knew who our waiter was, and it took forever to get water, the menu, bread and even our food took too long. Food was average, almost very simple, I wouldn't call it gastronomic, and under-seasoned. I just think this place is overrated. Or maybe we went in a bad day, who knows. If I would happen to return, I would have to think it twice to go back. Very disappointing because you feel like you beg them to serve you.

If you accept this for what it is, which is a very large restaurant the puts really good bistro food in front of you at reasonable cost, you will be happy. If you think "Paul Bocuse", you will not. Service is friendly but a bit inept, many young helpers with a few seasoned staff. It drives me crazy when you have to wait twenty minutes to give a drink order, so in self defense you order your food at the same time. Starters arrived one minute after the drinks. Avoid the porch at lunch because everyone who brings children seems to think it is a playground for their kids while the parents finish a quiet lunch.
