This place is really great if you want to taste French food and especially specialties from Lyon. The food is exceptional and the staff really friendly. I strongly recommend L'espace brasserie!

On the southern side of Place Bellecour, this brasserie’s lunch menu delivered the goods. The daily specials were a risotto starter and a main of saucisson a cuire au Beaujolais. Both were excellent takes on dishes for which it’s easy enough to do an “alright to pretty good” version, so one notices a better version. The risotto had chicken and... More

We had reserved a family lunch for 9 people and were given a nice table. The menu is creative, for kids there is only one choice, for vegetarians very limited (at the end my wife ordered pasta with mushrooms and without bacon, but then it came with traces of bacon). Generally the food was very good, though, but we had... More

This was a well located, extremely busy restaurant. Food was very good. Very reasonably priced. Reservation ahead is recommended.

We enjoyed our meal here. The service was very good on our first visit, not so good on the second. But it is a pleasant place for a meal after a busy day if you are staying nearby

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The restaurant is located on Place Bellecour, convenient to many Lyon attractions. The food was expertly prepared. Everyone in our party of 4 was pleased with the cuisine. The choices are varied and the prices are moderate. We were served by a professional and cordial waiter.

Waiter was a bit stand-offish at first, but warmed up as the meal went along. We went with the meat & the fish lunch specials and for Lyon, it wasn't horrifically expensive. Quality was good, and kind-of reminded me of a New York coffee shop with food. One could do a lot worse than this place, I'm sure. Not bad... More

When we had a day trip to Lyon, we thought that we should visit old town. While getting around in Bellecour Square, we chose this brasserie to have a cup of coffee. I drank an Americano with %50 milk. My wife preferred cappucino. The drinks and the service were good. The toilets were clean. We can suggest this brasserie.
