I have been to this restaurant once or twice in the past. Since it is an Alain Ducasse establishment you will not be disappointed. But be warned it is expensive. The tables are cramped and the service is somewhat 'French' for such an expensive place. The food which is classic is delicious. being autumn we had something that is hard... More

This is an extremely nice bistro with wonderful food, retro décor, great service. I had the quenelles and my husband chose the roast chicken. This was a good choice to share because the quenelles are very rich. Delicious extras like a fresh cheese to start and madeleines after our dessert--floating islands--sensational!!

I come back here all the time and have never been disappointed. The food is Alain Ducasse meets the Lyonnaise Mother-Cook. So delicious and tasty. My favourite is the assorted meat platter to start and then the Foie de veau for mains. Recommend whole-heartedly and wish I was back already!

Went to this restaurant with another couple. We had really looked forward to eating at an Alain Ducasse restaurant. The building and interior are really appropriate, with high ceiling, nice floors, and very nice table settings. House wine, though a bit pricey is really good....as are the appetizers. The main courses are something else. One of our friends had the... More

I had an important business lunch in the area (Opera-Bourse). I was looking for a place that served gourmet food, at a reasonable price and where one can eat within a reasonable time. This place fit all the criteria with its lunch set menu. There were more choices in the "A la Carte" menu, bistro type of food that are... More

From world wide famous French chef Alain Ducasse, an unexpected little spot with traditional cuisine lyonnaise. Great carte des vins. Will certainly recommend it

We had a great time here. It's a lovely restaurant with beautiful tile work. The staff was excellent and we were given good assistance to help us understand the menu.

With its irresistible 19th french decoration, the charming and cozy "Aux Lyonnais" welcomes you eyes first into its offer of honest and nourishing food. We had the Quenelle and the Cochon.

Had dinner last night at Aux Lyonnais. Ambient was excellent but food was very disappointing. Had the lamb and the pork dish. Very average quality. Nothing to write home about and definitely way too pricey! Service was friendly but somewhat uncoordinated with too many waiters looking after us. Not the classic way we expected in this restaurant. Cannot recommend this.... More

Description
Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890. It still has the red painted wood store front, and the original sign "Maison Lyonnaise".Frédéric Thévenet, head of the brigade, prepares "good, old fashioned, hearty food" but adds a modern touch. Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes shavings; Lyonnaise-style quenelles, Nantua sauce…

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
