Lovely ambiance, friendly service and about the quality of cooking you would expect from a 50 euro, 5 course tasting menu. The foie was slightly over cooked and the Veal required a steak knife to hack through. The scorpion fish with a gazpacho sauce was...More

A charming place overlooking Place des Terraux. The waiter is a character in an understated way and, further, he has some excellent recommendations. We ordered the 50 euros Tasting Menu and a St Joseph. He advised against the latter and proposed a lighter Burgundy, viz.,...More

What a fantastic meal and a wonderful experience! L'Etage is pure Lyon - hidden behind an ancient door, up a winding stone staircase, to an atmospheric panelled room overlooking the splendid buildings in Place Des Terreaux. The building is home to private apartments as well,...More

The restaurant is located right in the Place des Terreaux so we were initially a little skeptical that this was one of those "tourist trap" restaurants. it definitely is not. A small door leads to a mysterious looking hallway and staircase up to the restaurant....More

Very friendly host, lovely food, setting and ambience. It's a small restaurant upstairs with a view of the square and in a wood panelled room. French hospitality at it's best!
