very nice place to sit. we had eaten hamburger which was also nice. but the cheese plate was the best. There were many different kinds of cheese and the most importantly they put the whole cheese instead of a piece. Very delicious.

The Cafe was great for French food. The meal seemed to be average however the service was terrible. The waitress seemed to have forgotten about me. I asked for a wine that was never delivered and then after my meal arrived they never returned. Finally...More

I love the cafe 203. I used to go there when i was a student in Lyon since my school was located right next to it. I've only been there for the usual coffee-cigarette (or wine cigarette) and they have good wines and good coffee....More

We ordered a burger classic well done and entrecôte medium. My burger was medium and oily, and the entrecôte cold, rare and very hard. She couldn't eat half of it cause there were pieces of fat everywhere. The waitress avoided us after serving the food......More
