I was back au Poelon d'Or in June 2017, as I find it is the best place in Lyon to try Lyon food and especially a Quenelle! Quenelle, saucisson chaud were excellent. Do save some space for dessert or a St Marcellin cheese! Highly recommended

We had an outstanding lunch! Excellent, traditional Lyonaise dishes that were well-prepared and nicely presented. The crowd was almost entirely locals. Close to the Musee des Tissues.

If I were to form a Monday night club, where friends and visitors would socialize and enjoy excellent food, this would be my recommended permanent venue. The food is consistently excellent, the service first class, and the ambiance very amenable. I chose the set menu...More
