The set menu at lunch was a three-course meal with each course beautifully presented and the taste did not disappoint! The service was great and quite simply an excellent restaurant. in the range of 20 - 25 euro for the three-course lunch it was incredibly reasonable for the quality of food delivered.

Wonderful restaurant, nice decor. Exceptional play with the blends and the textures. Had lunch here (50 euro for 2 persons with a pot of wine) and will definitely come back for dinner.

Very friendly service. Not much of choice because there is a unique menu. Very tasty but bit to surpirising for our taste. Very original flavors.

it was sad to try to get a reservation for 3 weeks in a row and not being accommodated no matter the day and/or time. Hard to believe they cannot sit ONE person for 21 days. Even sad to walk by on my way to other restaurants in the area and see more than half of the tables empty. Not... More

This was our third evening meal at L'Ourson over a period of about one year. On our two previous visits, we were extremely impressed by the presentation and originality of the combination of flavours and textures. This time, we were somewhat less impressed. The fixed menu at 32 Euros provided two choices for the appetizer and two choices for the... More

Great, great, great. From the beginning I wasn't glad. Everything seemed to be too sophisticated, but after appetizers I knew, why we had to wait 2 weeks for booking... very tasty, small plates with good wine took me to the heaven...

I feel I can provide good feedback and comparisons of the various places. This was our first of the places we visited and had dutifully made a reservation a full 31 days... More

Well, what to say about this restaurant. A lot of friend of mine had been telling me that it was amazing and I was genuinely curious about this one. I finally had the occasion to go and was first surprised by the menu unique. It's OK for me I eat everything and it was actually quite cool to not have... More

Went as part of small work meeting, and when in Lyon they always call ahead to let restaurants know that I'm a vegetarian. No problem for the staff here and I'm so glad we ate there. The food was among the best I've ever eaten, especially the main course I had veg tempura fused with a creamy puree underneath it.... More
