Located on one of the main footpaths of Old Lyon, many will pass it, and those that stay will be rewarded with great food, and a great character serving you. €56.30 for two ain't bad either.

My son and husband and I went out for dinner here. We enjoyed the food & surroundings. The locations was great, and the service, though not overly friendly, was courteous, attentive and efficient. We walked away happy :-).
