We stopped here for a 7 pm dinner with no reservations. No problem at all. The hostess was very kind and treated us very well with our limited french-speaking abilities. I found the restaurant charming. We split some great pate and then dove into the...More

We were recommended by our hotel concierge and it did not disappoint. Beautiful care was taken in creating our delicious meals and the waitress gave exceptional service. The decor is gorgeous and everything reasonably priced - a must do when in Lyon.

My husband had some seafood in a pastry and I had their steak dish. Don't pass this place by. You will love that you stopped in. The sauces kept us tongue tied in awe.

Wonderful atmosphere. Amazing salad gourmand! Superb main dishes. Fondant chocolate was excellent, old profiteroles. A all round fantastic evening made by the convivial atmosphere, staff were fun and full of "mama" jokes :) Recommend this as a great dinner place!

A good restaurant in the old town of Lyon. Good homemade food with friendly service. Excellent pumpkin soup and prawn risotto and wonderful cervelle de canuts. Well worth a detour for this good value for money restaurant.
