In the heart of the tourist trade in Vieux Lyon. We arrived after 1430, when most places were closed, but this was open, so we took an outside table. The restaurant takes its name from the adjacent Traboule, down which we saw some guided tour...More

Had lunch in this place. The description of the plate of the day did not match what was served. Two small leg bones with almost no meat on them accompanied by some uninspiring potatoes and a bit of lettuce. Would not go back

Terrible experience. The place looks nice and cozy, but the food and the service were one of the worst I ever have had in my life. They brought the wrong starters, and they were really bad. Then, the main dish was even worst and what...More

Nice, cosy restaurant. Visited in winter, nice atmosphere with a small but very nice fireplace. Tasty and satisfying food. Onion soup is superb. Cold meat and wine go very well together.

Aside the food, the service was goid, romantic atmosphere and decoration, local people eat here so i guess they enjoy the food. A small well done steak, simple salad, average lasagna, reasonable prices. Try to find a better place in the endless options of lyon.

I ended up at this place after trying to go somewhere else and then finding it was closed for 2 weeks. I then meandered through the old town realising that it was full of tourist restaurants. Yuk! This one also looked very touristy but it...More

I had a dinner with friends here, so couldn't really choose the place and I was worried when I saw the reviews. The place is very charming, but it's definitely a tourist trap for people who are looking for typical food from Lyon. Sizes were...More

charming postcard place but definitely to be avoided. Food is terrible, poor cooking skills, no seasonning, no taste, no attention, dished out without any care on dirty plates. It's way over priced for the quality and experience. Pass your way fellow!
