The food wasn't bad but nothing special. Starters were good, mains small and boring and the deserts almost felt bought. The environment was nice but I would personally not recommend the restaurant.

I came across this restaurant on a travel blog and wanted to try some authentic lyonnaise food whilst visiting with my husband. We were there 5 mins early since we did not have a booking. We were seated quickly being one of the first couples there. All the waitresses were lovely and spoke to us in English. My husband and... More

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge at the Sofitel. It was in walking distance of the hotel. The food was very good. The ambiance was homey. However, the tables were very small and the restaurant crowded. Don't try to go there without reservations. We saw many people turned away. The restaurant was crowded from the minute they opened at... More

Gentleman next to us use to run a restaurant just down the road but said this was his favourite. Light Quenelle and tender Venison. Good pot of local wine.... More

I was back at the Poêlon d'or in January 2017 and my previous reviews are still holding up: it's a great place for enjoying lyon food! This time I tried the foie gras with artichoke, which was a surprising and delicious combination. I also had the half baked chocolate cake, also delicious if a bit overcooked to my taste. Of...

The wine and potatoes "au gratin" were very good. The meat (beef) was of a good quality but tasteless. The dessert was ok. The waiter (seem to be the chief waiter on the 14th of January) made us feel anxious since the beggining of our dinner. It seemed like we just occupied a table and the sooner we eat the... More

One of the few certified "authentic" bouchons in Lyon. This is simple food done extremely well. It is a lot more basic than some of the other restaurants in town, but offers what people define as traditional Lyonnaise cuisine. Service was somewhat flippant and borderline surly, but I think that only adds to the charm. The price is right and... More

The people in there are extremely friendly. They don't speak fluent english but have tried their hardest to help us. I had the beef ribs (which was a special dish) and creme brûlée and it was so delicious. Highly recommend. The price is also reasonable for french cuisine.

Good ambience, great food and value for money. Restaurant serves Lyonnaise dishes. Would recommend and return again. Restaurant was busy so would suggest booking rather than risk walking in - especially at the weekend.
