We have a group of ten people, I only remember this dish is excellent "Eggs casserole with crayfish". Other then that chicken with black truffle is ok, pork is ok. We heard two of our group ordered beef and they are good. I was still full from lunch so I did not taste it. Atmosphere friendly and cost. Reasonable price

Several blocks from the Bourse, this quiet and small jewel offers excellent food. Reservations are a must. The Bourguignon is the second best from among over 30 variations tried in the city. The Quenelles a la Lyonnaise were delicate and supurb. Be prepared to spend a bit more for wine. This restaurant is truly worth the visit..

Lovely evening with most friendly staff. Great wine! Tasty dishes that are very well prepared. Very Parisian French experience in a relaxed atmosphere. One small suggestions for the owner: invest in new casseroles that are being used for presenting your hot dishes ;-).

Aux Lyonnais has changed. The low-key, homey atmosphere of the past has been replaced by a brisk, expensive and stylish new look and a new menu to match. For example, the Lyonnais salad with a soft egg and crisp lardons on friseé has been replaced by a petite version with a small slice of foie gras terrine. The famous quenelles... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Aux Lyonnais. Exactly want you would imagine a French bistro should be. Friendly and helpful staff, fantastic French comfort food and a great and reasonable wine list. Also not a "touristy" locale and everyone at the restaurant appeared to be locals. Cant wait to go back!

I have been to this restaurant once or twice in the past. Since it is an Alain Ducasse establishment you will not be disappointed. But be warned it is expensive. The tables are cramped and the service is somewhat 'French' for such an expensive place. The food which is classic is delicious. being autumn we had something that is hard... More

This is an extremely nice bistro with wonderful food, retro décor, great service. I had the quenelles and my husband chose the roast chicken. This was a good choice to share because the quenelles are very rich. Delicious extras like a fresh cheese to start and madeleines after our dessert--floating islands--sensational!!

I come back here all the time and have never been disappointed. The food is Alain Ducasse meets the Lyonnaise Mother-Cook. So delicious and tasty. My favourite is the assorted meat platter to start and then the Foie de veau for mains. Recommend whole-heartedly and wish I was back already!

Went to this restaurant with another couple. We had really looked forward to eating at an Alain Ducasse restaurant. The building and interior are really appropriate, with high ceiling, nice floors, and very nice table settings. House wine, though a bit pricey is really good....as are the appetizers. The main courses are something else. One of our friends had the... More

Description
Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890. It still has the red painted wood store front, and the original sign "Maison Lyonnaise".Frédéric Thévenet, head of the brigade, prepares "good, old fashioned, hearty food" but adds a modern touch. Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes shavings; Lyonnaise-style quenelles, Nantua sauce…

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
