We stopped here for lunch on a Sunday. Service was slow, but we were in no hurry. I had the Cesar Salad w/chicken - was very good and large (€16), wife had the lamb chops (4 w/veggies) which was very good also (€22) and ice tea (€4.5). The place was very busy - lots of locals.

Back to Lyon after quite a long time, I must say that It was a must to go Rue des Marronniers for a bite. Le comptoir is a mouthwatering venue, the food is simple and the lunch menu is good, qualitative and affordable. Succulent mushroom soup, excellent "Andouillette". A bit disappointed by the Creme de Marrons though as I was... More

I want to start by saying that the service was terrible. The restaurant was empty when we arrived and yet it took 15 minutes to get menus and 35 minutes before we had water and wine. From their it was downhill. We were a party of four and ordered our starter courses and entrees. Our starter courses came out quickly... More

The food is not bad, but the french fries were burned and my dish didn't have a salad, although it really needed one. The service was too slow. I'm not coming back.

Although arrived late for lunch, they prepared my order (frog legs in garlic sauce and potato with mushrooms in the side). Polite staff and English speaking (important)! I was impressed by the famous chefs and customers that were depicted in wall photos.

Although we booked our table earlier that afternoon it was taken by others so not a good start. Service very slow and offhand (waited a long time for a drink). Main course very average. The quenelles brochet (pike) was very unappealing and stodgy and the veal "chop" was a piece of beef overcooked, cold, with a tasteless sauce. It got... More

Euro2016 visit in busy restaurant street was pleasant and food traditional & good. Service was nice and friendly. One star lost from limited wine selection and lack of proper wine glasses.

We had the three-course menu lyonnaise, which costs 20 euros per person, and it was exquisite. All dishes were tasty and beautifully presented. We had an excellent experience overall. We would definitely recommend.

Visited while on a company trip to the area. The local team suggested this road for restaurants, so we went and had a look at all the menu's. This one appealed most. There was two great big chickens outside the door, so you can you can't miss it. But also, don't let this put you off. Friendly welcome. Menu had... More
