Divine starter and main (tuna tartar and sea bass). Nice music (Buddha Bar Electro CD) Definitely I will pay a visit one more time as soon as I come back to Lyon.

This is our second trip to Le Petit Carron and we really enjoyed the food on both occasions. I highly recommend the butternut soup starter and the gnocchi and scallops for main course; just make sure you go on an empty stomach! I haven't given a 5 as we were a little disappointed when we received the bill to learn... More

We arrived shortly at 7pm on a Saturday, without a reservation (although I had tried online and wasn't quite sure it went through - which it didn't) and were turned away since the tables were all reserved. While disappointedly walking away, one of the staff ran down the street and called after us - apparently a table for 4 had... More

The food was great, service excellent. Try the rognons de veau! Finished the meal with a perfect blackcurrant sorbet. Delicious!

We have been living in Lyon since 2014 and this restaurant happens to be just around the corner from our new place. My wife found it on this website and let me tell you, no matter what the previous reviewer wrote, I can not agree. First of all you get really great menu deals also at dinner time and the... More

We didn't have very high expectations with this restaurant given that we called 48 restaurants on Friday lunch to book for dinner the same night, this was one of 3 only restaurants in trip advisors top 50 restaurant that still had a table. All other restaurants were full. As it turned out from 7 to 8:15pm, we were the only... More

A delicious meal with such great value, friendly service, nice wine and most of all simple delicious food!! The menu is in French and the waitstaff don't speak much English but as you're in France what do you expect? If you have a few basic translations of meats then you can wing it and not be disappointed!! Ravioli is to... More

I went to this restaurant on a Monday evening with a customer. Even though there are so many restaurants in Lyon only a few are opened on a Monday night. Price quality ratio was quite good. I pay around 100€ for 2 people including several wine glasses.

After being greeted by friendly staff, I enjoyed a glass of St Joseph, a most acceptable local drop (particularly if allowed time to breathe), and an interesting entree – salad served in a cup and ham cooked in herbs and flowers, accompanied by a generous portion of stewed apples, caramelised onions, and butter, topped with melted goats cheese. For my... More

The waitress really made us feel welcome and was very attentive. The food was excellently prepared and the menu has a wide selection. When we refused desert for caloric reasons we were offered a glass of eau de vie de poire which we accepted. You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We tried to go back for... More
