Reasonably priced & authentic! Food was home-styled & desserts weren't too sweet which was great. The ambience was in its original settings and great service. Worth making a booking in advanced if in large group, otherwise get in early for dinner at 7:30pm when they...More

We have great pride in having dined with Paul Bocusse in Lyon and the original Alain Ducasse in Paris -- this restaurant was restored and reopened by those two giants. One of oldest in Paris, it looks it and feels it and the food is...More

Visited with another couple who live in Paris and who booked this place for a meal with us on Saturday. Old style French restaurant. Interesting food. Prices were ok ish for what it was. The wine though?! Ridiculously overpriced considering it is all home grown!...More

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

Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890.

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…
