I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that this restaurant is really overrated. Our friends who are restaurant owners in New York were really excited about visiting Paul Bocus' restaurant and I am not sure what their true opinion was. It cost an arm and a leg and in my opinion the food was no better than... More

Our expectations were very high when we decided to book a table a this resto and we weren't disappointed at all. The experience was over the top! Unlike many 3-starred restaurant you get to eat a lot of the most iconic dishes and all of it at the highest quality. Staff was super friendly and attentive

when our lyonnaise friends drove past this tourist stop, my best friend dee hopped out of the car and went to take photos inside the restaurant...she is not a cooking buff (although she is a good cook) and who did she meet inside the restaurant but Monsieur Bocuse himself! dee said he was very humble and friendly, and if we...

We have done 600+km to visit this restaurant, it cost every penny we spent. Atmosphere, exterior, interior, service and FOOD were excellent. I would like to return there definitely. It is not cheap, but as to me, you can compare such dining with a travel to the Moon. I do prefer Paul Bocuse! Bravissimo!

My parents took me there as I was visiting from a Canada. We had the "Menu tradition". It was just excellent. The food, the service, everything was perfectly cooked. I can't find a single thing to say improve. Except.... it was too much!

One of most amazing restaurants in the world for food, service, & atmosphere. Not sure how anyone does not rate this 5 stars. Frankly I would rate a 10 out of 5 of hat was possible. Everything I had & at my table was off the charts good. Not cheap but well worth the price. Definitely a destination restaurant. Staff... More

Made reservations the maximum time in advance. It's the height of fine dining, in a pretty setting next to the river about a 15 minute taxi ride north of Lyon. Liked the man who greeted us at the entrance, and afterwards waited with us for the taxi. He also played the musical hurdy gurdy in the restaurant for people celebrating... More

There is no doubt that Bocuse it the grandfather of the cuisine classic and his restaurant a monument to him and his energy . For that we owe him respect and honor. Restaurant Bocuse is an ornate monument, not subtle in the least which stands firmly on his traditional dishes of excellence. Be aware however that his Micheline 3*** are... More

My husband and I enjoyed our lunch which was perfectly prepared and presnted by the very professional and friendly staff. The food is classic French cooking with no gimiics to hide behind. Therefore we were amazed at how perfect everything was. We have travelled the world eating at several Michelin star restaurants and have been very pleased with many of... More

Don't expect the molecular fooding you'll find elsewhere : here you will gave great products, a legendary place, and a great team succeeding in keeping 3 stars for 55 years. Don't expect diversity : colors only for the grooms/parking valets and very few women.
