Admitted we arrived quiet late ar 22.20 but opening hrs showed 23.30. We were ignored the first five minutes and upon approaching somebody to ask, he said it was quiet late so we have to order the plates straight away without the starters. We agreed and he openend the restaurant door, we thought he wanted to show us something outside... More

Lucky enough to walk past on an evening stroll. The welcome was warm and the restaurant is an inviting space. Loved the food and the friendly ladies who served us. Will go back when we return to Lyon.

Early evening, we were heading back to the popular eating area and looking for somewhere with a good selection of non-meat dishes. This little restaurant was perfect. Great food, good and friendly service and eclectic seating. It filled up quickly and luckily there was more tables upstairs.

A friend recommended this place to have a romnatic dinner in a cosy and lovely place. There aren't many tables (maybe 10) so it is better to book. On Saturday they do not accept bookings, however if you go there around 8:30 you will be fine. We had a bottle of cote du rhone, and the flan with cheese was... More

We had a late night meal here after the rugby. An unexpected funky little spot on the edge of the street. We ate a la carte. Do not miss the St Marecelin cheese here...the best we found all weekend. The staff were very attentive and cared for our evey needs. I will head back here next time in town.

Chanced upon this restaurant as we were walking to see st nizier church. As soon as its midday the crowds come in. I'm not sure how the poor lady runs both floors of the restaurant with little assistance from the kitchen. Great food selections from the specials.

This is a small restaurant in Lyon. It is intimate and the seating is covered in varied French fabrics. I will start with the basics. My husband is still dreaming about his beef burgundy, which was so well prepared. The potatoes and country vegetables added to the dish. I am vegetarian and literally cannot remember a better meal. They have... More

We chanced upon this little restaurant on a Saturday evening and glad we did. Cosy atmosphere, good service and great food to match. Echoing some of the previous reviews, the mixed starter (all veggie) was fantastic, which gave a taster of all the starters on offer. Mains equally impressive - the goats cheese fondue especially was super tasty, albeit very... More
