Had lunch in this place. The description of the plate of the day did not match what was served. Two small leg bones with almost no meat on them accompanied by some uninspiring potatoes and a bit of lettuce. Would not go back

Terrible experience. The place looks nice and cozy, but the food and the service were one of the worst I ever have had in my life. They brought the wrong starters, and they were really bad. Then, the main dish was even worst and what could we say about the dessert... It was an industrial dessert we buy at the... More

My husband ordered pork, and it came burned almost beyond recognition and had the wrong sauce. When he asked about the sauce, he was told that the menu was wrong, and that the sauce he was served was the correct one, that the menu had not been corrected yet and so, too bad. By the time this discussion was over,... More

Nice, cosy restaurant. Visited in winter, nice atmosphere with a small but very nice fireplace. Tasty and satisfying food. Onion soup is superb. Cold meat and wine go very well together.

Aside the food, the service was goid, romantic atmosphere and decoration, local people eat here so i guess they enjoy the food. A small well done steak, simple salad, average lasagna, reasonable prices. Try to find a better place in the endless options of lyon.

I ended up at this place after trying to go somewhere else and then finding it was closed for 2 weeks. I then meandered through the old town realising that it was full of tourist restaurants. Yuk! This one also looked very touristy but it also looked popular which in my book is always a good sign. So I went... More

I had a dinner with friends here, so couldn't really choose the place and I was worried when I saw the reviews. The place is very charming, but it's definitely a tourist trap for people who are looking for typical food from Lyon. Sizes were poor, food was very average, service was slow and they only accept cash. I wouldn't... More

charming postcard place but definitely to be avoided. Food is terrible, poor cooking skills, no seasonning, no taste, no attention, dished out without any care on dirty plates. It's way over priced for the quality and experience. Pass your way fellow!

I went there twice: for lunch in October and for a dinner in May. Located in a nice little square seems to be a nice place. We admired dishes and service in October, so I took other visitors in May to dinner there. That was super-slow, the dishes were not all served at the same time (that's smth exceptional for... More
