A friend recommended this place to have a romnatic dinner in a cosy and lovely place. There aren't many tables (maybe 10) so it is better to book. On Saturday they do not accept bookings, however if you go there around 8:30 you will be fine. We had a bottle of cote du rhone, and the flan with cheese was... More

We had a late night meal here after the rugby. An unexpected funky little spot on the edge of the street. We ate a la carte. Do not miss the St Marecelin cheese here...the best we found all weekend. The staff were very attentive and cared for our evey needs. I will head back here next time in town.

Chanced upon this restaurant as we were walking to see st nizier church. As soon as its midday the crowds come in. I'm not sure how the poor lady runs both floors of the restaurant with little assistance from the kitchen. Great food selections from the specials.

This is a small restaurant in Lyon. It is intimate and the seating is covered in varied French fabrics. I will start with the basics. My husband is still dreaming about his beef burgundy, which was so well prepared. The potatoes and country vegetables added to the dish. I am vegetarian and literally cannot remember a better meal. They have... More

We chanced upon this little restaurant on a Saturday evening and glad we did. Cosy atmosphere, good service and great food to match. Echoing some of the previous reviews, the mixed starter (all veggie) was fantastic, which gave a taster of all the starters on offer. Mains equally impressive - the goats cheese fondue especially was super tasty, albeit very... More

Came across this small place by accident which shows you are sometimes lucky to slightly off piste. Great home cooked food at reasonable price. Friendly relaxed service. A little gem.

good menu especially as we had a plate of mixed starters and mixed desserts. Cheese soufflé was best I have ever tasted and pea soup was sweet and memorable. Very attentive friendly staff. Well priced and we will be back.

A very little, but very nice restaurant! Food is delicious and so is the wine. We tried several dishes and all of them tasted great, especially the ones with meat! If you're in Lyon, you should visit this place!
