Emotional moment...
Stay simple, it's a family business where you can feel the passion in a not intrusive but attentive service and of course feel the love in the plate...
Probably the best restaurant in lyon i would argue.
What else does Monsieur Orsi have to do to prove himself a great chef?
For the dishes "faultless"
For the wine list "wonderful"
Thank you.

Very good restaurant.
Very classical atmosphere. Tables are however a bit too close from each other.
Service was absolutely excellent.
Very good advices for the wines.
Traditional French cuisine
Menu @85 euros is really good.
Try the ravioles à la truffe and the crayfish. Excellent.

I do recommend

An excellent restaurant offering great cuisine. The food, accompanied by wonderful vintages was delicious. The truffle ravioli, the fowl dish and the crepe suzette that I had were all very good. The others in our group who tried other offerings were all equally effusive about the fare.Highly recommended.

Lyon has, in my opinion, a most undeserved reputation for great food ---- a myth that owes more to the incredible number of restaurants it contains rather than to their quality. This Michelin 1-star Relais et Chateau attached to a modest hotel in a nondescript area of Part Dieu is worth seeking out. It is presided over by a gracious chef who has given his name to the restaurant, and a remarkable Maitre D ---- half encyclopedia and half comedian ---- who adds a rare touch of human spice to the dining experience. The dining room and its accessories ( including toilets) are decorated in a fin-de-siecle luxury that is often associated with snobbery, but here with warmth and good fellowship. A fine array of amuses bouches and breads got us under way. My wife of little appetite opted for the 45 euro lunch menu that started with Galette of Crab, continued with elegant Aiguillettes of grilled duck with spicy sausage, and on to a creamy St Marcellin. The other 3 hungrier members of the group went for the 60 euro meal starting with Foie Gras in a green pepper jelly, or Pastry of Sweetbreads and mushrooms; Filet de Veau, Pot au Feu of Fish ( sea-bass, red mullet, and John Dory) with soup of thyme, Carre d’Agneau ---- all dishes being delicately accompanied by superb “little vegetables of the moment”, and a cheese course that comprised moderate-sized slices of three of the regional superstars. My wife’s dessert was generously upgrade to that of the rest of us: Symphony of Pleasure, in which the table was cleared of every crumb and content and covered with 4 portions of each of 6 different desserts, followed by plates of exquisite friandises. It was a very happy experience all round, and thoroughly recommendable to anyone seeking a memorable gastronomic experience that is not inexpensive, but in line with the quality and ambience of a top-class restaurant.

From the moment you arrive at Restaurant..Pierre Orsi,class and elegance are unveiled.
The Dining Room is Marvellous in Decor and the seating is so very comfortable and so Romantic.
Do take time to really see the premises. Our meals,[we were two couples],were Exquisite,both visually and taste wise. We were delighted with each course,marvelled at the scrumptious wines we were having..and frankly,did not want the evening to come to an end.When you are in the hands of a true Master Chef...you will know...as we did.
