Very warm welcome from the staff. Food was perfect. We spent a good time with my colleague and dicuss with our neighbour, because we share table with other people. Incredible experience.

It's a bouchon. One expects it to be small, and cozy. One hopes for some good food. This was great, all the way around. Tripe. Pig. Tables of people there to EAT, and have a great time with friends. I was very happy to see ten big men all squeeze into a table and enjoy themselves, the waiter, and the... More

This was one of my favourite meals in Lyon. The dining room is small but beautifully decorated with nostalgic memorabilia. We were the first to arrive for dinner and were given a warm welcome by the chef and the waiter. The chef saw us looking at the picture on the wall and explained it was of the first George. He...

Le petit George is a tiny and yes cramped but not uncomfortable restaurant so make sure to make a reservation. Very welcoming and smiling waiter and bartender. We asked to be told about the different dishes as a bouchon serves a lot of meat and offal we did not know about but were open to be acquainted with. We were... More

As a top rated bouchon I expected more. The seating was very cramped and uncomfortable and it was so hot inside. The salmon was pretty good and my husbands steak was extremely chewy. It did not live up to its ratings.

There are quite some places in Lyon where you can “experience” a bouchon. But not all of them are serving high quality food. Chez Georges, there is no doubt about that. Food is just succulent here. On the menu you will find most of the typical dishes a bouchon would (and should) offer. My wife had the menu of the... More

That was a great experience, but you must know two things: 1. Really hard to get a table, you need to make a reservation, place is really small. 2. You will not eat a burger there... It will be Lyonnais.

Really did not know what to expect from this restaurant. This is a very small place with typical crowed tables. The tables were fill with locals and those in the know for great food. It was the best representation of Salad Lyonnaise that we had. All the food was terrific. It was also served family style. House wine a winner.... More

I remember this bouchon from my time as a student in Lyon decades ago, when bouchons were part of the daily life. Times and tastes have indeed changed, as has Lyon for the better. Chez Georges has remained a traditional restaurant with good food at good value in a timeless decor with cheek-to-jowl seating. The previous reviews tell tell the... More
