Traditional lyonnaise food. Very well cooked. The best we had in Lyon. Simply delicious! Don't miss the opportunity to go there.

Typical Bouchon with traditional food. The service is a bit rude and slow, and quite normal price. The food include almost meat (like intestines, liver and so on), but there is chicken if you don't like the Lyonnais kitchen. Onion soup not special. The chocolate mousse is very nice tho.

Chez Sylvie is named for the energetic and charming owner, who treated us royally when we arrived about an hour before most customers eat dinner. She made us feel right at home. We had a "menu" of the day, a modest wine, and enjoyed the rich flavors, ample servings, and authentic old style decor. While the food was quite good... More

A lovely old place with lots of character, serving classic Lyonnaise cuisine. The food was very good, and the prices are reasonable.

So you're in the middle of 2nd Arr and you want to stay away from tourist traps. Chez Sylvie has good local Lyonnaise food. The price are relatively more affordable than the touristy places in the area. Please do try cream of lentil soup with blood sausage. That's one of the most unforgettable things we've tasted in our 10-day Lyon... More

We showed up without a reservation on a weekday evening. Sylvie was busy getting ready for the dinner service, but seated us right away. The menu had a section that was in English, so we were able to find exactly what we wanted. Sylvie was so friendly, and the atmosphere was relaxed and convivial. The food is excellent, and we...

Great dinner, fun atmosphere and watching Sylvie work the floor was magic! Traditional Lyonnaise bouchon cuisine with red checked tablecloths - plenty of tourists, but with a sprinkling of locals and regulars which gives it authenticity.

This friendly, family-style place is just tourist-friendly enough to inspire confidence, but otherwise very French. Sylvie herself bustles around, serving and advising, while the lovely waiting staff are attentive and knowledgeable. We loved the food and it was a great way to try real Lyonnaise cuisine for the first time.

If you want great food and excellent service, which let's face it in France is hard to come by, look no more! This is the place! The host is warm, welcoming and fun! We thought the gratin was bit too salty and she offered to change it straight away. The night before, in another place, the waiter made a mistake... More
