“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Yes it is noisy - it's a brasserie, if you want quiet go elsewhere! Food & wine is reasonably priced & good - which I guess is why you need wait for a table. I've been several times and will no doubt return.

“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

We have been to all the Brasseries Bocuse here in Lyon several times but today was the biggest deception since ever.
True it is Sunday the 26th of January and not many restaurants are open on Sunday here, but the staff was very unprofessional ... Our waiter was clearly not at all interested in his work, taking the guests as idiots and accusing the chef of not being able to read. The lunch took over 2 hours and we had small children with us. The food was very expensive and not worth it. Will not go back there :-(

“Very good food, average service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

Second visit here, similar story both times... Front of house very smooth & welcoming. Very good food each time, but service leaves much to be desired. Slow, disinterested waiters, waiting ages for food, cold chips delivered with steak.. Steak was fantastic however. As were starters.
Overall; ropey service, but very, very good food experience...

“It's not Bocuse ! It's just a French Brasserie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Very noisy. Waiters do it but without service : it's their job not their pleisure. And the prices are higher than in a good restaurant ! "Surfait"
The building is otherwise an architectural one, really.

“Quality eating at an affordable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

This is a good looking restaurant, spilling out on to the pedestrianised surroundings of the former SNCF Gare des Brotteaux, near the Parc de la Tete D'Or in central Lyon. The interior is beautifully fitted out but can be somewhat noisy when full, which is most of the time! My preference has always been to eat outside when this is possible. The terrace is sheltered and has wonderful vistas of the surrounding area.
This is the bargain basement outlet for one of France's cultural assets, Paul Bocuse, and I have never had any food here that I would not wish to have again. The standard is astonishingly high and consistently so. The staff tend to be young and are always enthusiastic. I would recommend a visit here for anyone who loves good foo at an affordable price.
