Average typical lyonnaise restaurant. Very small facing one of the small and touristy roads of Lyon. Food typical of the region, good quality and ample choice. Normally very crowded, difficult to find place, better to book in advance. Service quick. Prices on the high side...More

This place has been there since I was a kid. Great food, location, service. Walk by the river after a good meal to enjoy the city lights.

Well known restaurant. traditional food. No subtle and high class cooking, but that was to expect. Small wine menue but good. All comes at a fair price, good quality and exceptional service. Ambiance is great. We will be back.

Visited 12/2016. Visited twice this "unofficial" bouchon. My first night a delicious ray and the second time pistachio sausage followed by the best rhum baba on this vacation. A few false notes (snap peas overcooked). Friendly and sincere service. Would return.

As soon as you walk in the restaurant you feel you getting back on time. This is a superb place, a really Lyonnais Bouchon. Good service and plentiful food.

A typical Bouchon is located on Rue Merciere, Atmosphere/Decoration are nice, both inside and a small street outside between kitchen and restaurant. Staff is friendly. Food is okay, but not the best....just an average experience..
