We were recommended to this restaurant by friends who work in Lyon. It is a typical bouchon atmosphere - the words "offal" on a menu would normally put me off. But they made everything taste great. I had never had the marcellin salad and loved...More

This was among one of the best meals that we had while in Lyon, though there were many great meals (and the reason we visited Lyon). The staff were attentive and helpful, making recommendations for wine. We went specifically for the quenelles and they did...More
