We were with a group of 6 friends and sat upstairs. The restaurant is lovely decorated and the menu is perfect. I dislike restaurants with 100 items on the menu (which thus come out of a freezer). This place has a small but great selections of local dishes. The lamb was perfect! The waiters are friendly and quirky, which is... More

Lovely atmosphere in restaurant, tiny place but warm. Menu was rather limited. Salade foi gras was small but tasty. Fish and rice dish was ok, and lemon tart excellent. Staff was a bit all over the place. Keen to reduce our time of stay.

We had booked a table for 12:30 - we arrived early as it was a rainy day & wanted to avoid our toddler to get drenched. We asked if it was ok to have a hot drink while waiting for the "service" to start: one of the waiters almost had a fit stating that they were due to eat. Despite... More

We had the lamb and it was excellent! And also the service was very enjoyable - by Alexis. Very friendly and a free digestif at the end! Would recommend!

The glace is at a great location in a small walking street of Lyon peninsula, within a stone's throw of Lyon opera and Lyon city hall. The service there is also quite ok and wine was correct. However the food there is quite disappointing and there are lot of much better places close by.

Unfortunately the food here was very disappointing and two of my friends barely ate any of their meals. One had the salad to start (very boring) and then the fish as a main (which looked awful and did not taste like fish at all) and one had scallops to start (hardly any of them). The rest of the food was... More

We ordered their plate special, wine and split a desert. The food was excellent across the board. A bit pricy but in a tourist area, we have come to expect that. Cist for our meal was 60 euros. Good food and unfortunately about average priced for the area.

Nice little bouchon. Tried the traditional quenelles. Ok, but nothing special. Nice atmosphere, quick service even though it was fairly full.

Thank AndersEller
