We arrived here late, at around 22:30, but this is a restaurant that advertises service until 1130, which is why we went in... We were seated and given the sea food menu and the a la carte. We were then told that we must hurry up and order as they were closing the sea food section, our waiter was quite brisk with his delivery! In the end we orded off the carte, with my date going for steak tartare. Possibly not the wisest idea at the end of a long service, but it was on the menu and he fancied it!
I am not going to moan about the food too much here, it was ok, nothing memorable. It was the service that stood out - it was rushed, dare I say rude, no eye contact from our waiter and a regular slamming down of condiments and plates onto our table with a grunt and not even a glance at us. I guess he was busy and stressed, as is normal in the hospitality industry, but we didn't wish to know it!
We were sat by the restaurant kitchen doors which are heavy and regularly swing open loudly with someone rushing through carrying plates - not the best place to sit, especially if you like to imagine that your restaurant has a clean kitchen. From what I saw, this one didn't.
The final straw though, was watching my date go a ghostly white colour and rush off to the toilets, 30 minutes after his steak tartare. He threw up, had bad stomach pains and my heart sank as we realised he had food poisoning.
We had to get out of there before he threw up again, so I told him to wait outside and told the Maitre D what had happened. He too seemed too busy and stressed to listen properly, showed no interest in discounting our bill (not that I cared to argue by that point), so I paid and left.
There are a thousand better places in Lyon to eat than here.
