This is a Lyon "bouchon" - a small bistro with plenty of character in rue Verdi. It was recommended by my French cousins. We went for a family dinner celebration.
There were two fixed 3-course menus 19.90 and 32.50 Euros, though I went for a mix & match for 28 Euros, having the excellent fois gras from the more expensive menu and the fish from the cheaper menu. My wife rated the salad starter very highly. Over half the party thought the food was excellent, and even the more fussy English enjoyed the lamb main course and the desserts. The house wine was enjoyable and good value. The older members of the party had some difficulty reading the menu, written on a mirror.
I would be very happy to return.

A group of us ate at Bistrot Pizay last month. The food, at least my dishes, were disappointing - uninspiring flavors. The desserts too were letdowns. The one positive thing was the wine. We got a bottle of viognier and it was very nice. I would definitely not eat here again.

My wife and I stumbled upon Bistro Pizay while looking for another restaurant. The atmosphere looked great and the people seemed to really be enjoying their food so we decided to eat there. We are really glad we did.

Our very nice waitress spoke some English and helped us with our menu selections. My wife and I both had set menus where you could pick from several starters and main dishes. Both sets were under 30 euros. I had the foie gras as my starter and a rack of lamb as my entree. My wife had a Tomato/Mozzarella salad and a fish dish as her entree. Everything was delicious. The foie gras was simply the best I've ever had and the lamb ranks up there as well. My wife's fish was very fresh and was excellent.

In addition, the service was great unlike other experiences we've had in France. Our order was quickly taken and food was promptly served.

If you find yourself in Lyon and close to the Hotel De Ville, swing by the Bistro Pizay. You'll be glad you did.
