“Under the spreading tree”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

What a find! After a winding drive through upper suburbia, we found the restaurant right across from the Mairee. We were seated on the terrace which seemed to be almost completely covered by a very old tree. We negotiated the large branch dividing our table and tackled the offerings, probably best described as not quite Michelin but certainly not country style. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented by the very friendly staff who all seemed to be enjoying themselves.
We highly recommend Bol D'Air and suggest that bookings are essential. We arrived on a Friday at 8.00 and the place was packed by 9.00

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

Found this restaurant via trip advisor while staying in Dardilly (rated as number 1 in village). Great mid-week atmosphere (tuesday) and a warm welcome given by staff, even for one with limited French language skills! Food was excellent and well worth the 25 min walk from hotels off motorway A6. Highly recommended for anyone staying in the area and would definitely visit again.

“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We travelled to Ecully in Lyon,most reviews said you had to travel to Lyon for something to eat. We came across Bol D'air in the village of Dardilly, this was a fantastic French restaurant,the atmosphere was fantastic for a Wednesday evening the restaurant was full. The food was amazing and the staff could not be any more accommodating. Georgy the owner translated the menu from French to English for us he was excellent! The food is of an excellent standard, so much so we ate here the next night. Insoluble defiately recommend this restaurant for service and value.

“Best value in Lyon- great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This restaurant is the best value in Lyon. Entrees are from 12 to 24 Euro, and the changing menu has great variety, so something for everyone. The food quality is not fancy (it will not be a Michellin star restaurant), but is is traditional country side French & VERY WELL done. The wine selection is very good - and the service is very personal.

I don't think they serve food evry night - so you might want to call to insure that they will serve. I was there on a Wednesday night around 9 - and the place was crowded, but there were some tables available.

Overall - I would strongly recommend that you try this place if you are in the area for a tradiitonal French countryside experience.

“Délicieux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2011

This restaurant offers a large choice of original dishes.
Everyone can find something to fit its taste and hunger, from the starters to the desserts.
The menu changes regularly according to the mood of the cook and also the availability of season products.
If you are luncky enough to stop by on a sunny day, do not hesitate to resquest a table on the terrasse, in the shade of the huge hose chestnut-tree.
The service is pleasant and efficient.
