The restaurant is located conveniently, less than 10 minutes' walk from part-dieu station. The service staff were very friendly and made an effort to make us feel at home. We did not speak much French but the waiter spoke excellent English. Food was nice and served promptly. A full meal (starter, main course, dessert) costs between 20 to 30 EUR,... More

Top service here, really friendly- the head waiter (owner?) had a laugh with us and made us feel really at home. Portions are great for the burger and veau, and the quality has been top the two times I have visited (there will be more!). One small criticism I have is that one of the portion sizes was small for... More

This small restaurant situated in one of the most expensive areas of Lyon has a really excellent quality / price ratio. The food is always very good and presented nicely, the "dessert surprise" is most often excellent, and the wine is very good too. The restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere which well suits dinner with firends, in couple, but also... More

We were delighted to find this little restaurant as our first choice was full. The menu was very reasonably priced and not the rip off one can experience for others in Lyon. The food was first class. It did become very busy with locals which is always a good sign. The only negative was the unfortunate false raucous laughter from... More

We came across the restaurant by chance and were greatly rewarded by good food at a good price amd with friendly service. We chose the chef's suggestion which we were told changes regularly. The "mi-cuit tuna" was delicious and light. I'm still not quite sure what the seafood was that was described to us as being like calamari. If it... More

Had a fantastic night at this restaurant. We were the only English speaking customers. Staff were brilliant, really tried to help and their advice was spot on!!! Food was really enjoyable, wine was reasonable and they recommended it to suit and were very accurate. We were recommended to this restaurant by a local waiter at the Paul Bocuse market when...

It's hard to find a place in Lyon that can give you a decent dinner of 4 courses for 17.00 euros. Portions are small but filling. I had a nice veloute for starter, octopus for main, fromage blanc w/ confiture fat maision and then dessert. Drinks are quite expensive in comparison to the food, 6 euros for a simple apero.

Thank marrons
