Lyonnaise classics done well in a grand very pleasant, library-like atmosphere. Service is extremely accommodating, portions are generous and prices are very fair. Compared to some other Lyon restaurants it felt a bit big and impersonal, but they are also open at times when lots of other restaurants are and is a safe bet.

We opted for the set menu at EUR35pp....the starters we ok at best....a salad with poached egg for her and Lyonnaise sausage in a pastry for me.

The restaurant has a nice old fashioned feel to it, but sadly the food and service were nothing to write home about. I went here for a group meal - only about 10 people - so shouldn't have been too difficult to deal with. But we waited ages to get any drinks at the start, and refills were equally tardy.... More

Went as a table of four.Sat on the covered terrasse. Service was prompt and friendly. Menus were good value for money.The quenelles were not the best but very decent. Desserts were good and hearty. A sure choice if in Lyon and don't forget to visit the interior.

really enjoyed the Perfect service from the staff. I found the food good though the wine is a bit expensive. I had a menu with the snells as starters, good; then the duck which was ok even though I would have liked it better with homemade rustic style mash potatoe. Bad point: à strange smell in the restaurant that day.

Nice decor , ok food , nice people but a bit too slow on service despite best efforts . The quenelle was too hot, almost burning while the saucisson Lyonnais was fine but not refined .

I had a lovely ris de veau, which is not easy to find. The setting is lovely, location good after a day of shopping. There was a nice wine selection, with a reasonably priced Gigondas. One of my friend's meat dish was undercooked, but they fixed it really quickly.
