We have tried Esprit de Lyon and Tendances Légumes menu and they were both very delicious. I will highlight 2 comments though : the decoration is a bit special with the orange color and the prices of the wine list are very high.

A small restaurant in a cozy style. The chef worked also for Paul Bocuse, now he created his own style of a modern light kitchen. Friendly service, and the prices are more than reasonable for the high quality level.

I was bowled over by the interesting, varied, delicious food. Never thought I would enjoy andouille but it was wonderful. We started with a mini hamburger, a bit sweet for me, but the next 5 shot glasses with superb things were just what I wanted...and so it went on. We had the regional lyonnais menu Quite delightful. Staff looked a... More

We went for my sister-in-law's 21st birthday. We had the chef's table in the kitchen etc., but it doesn't matter. the sheer wit, attention to detail and flavour were remarkable. If you're in Lyon, and can get in, fill your boots.

Uninspiring setting, but genuine welcome and space around the tables. Some very interesting lunch menus, including a completely vegetarian one - unusual for a Michelin star resto in France (and yes, the 2016 star was there). Overall, a lovely long, relaxed lunch experience with a wide variety of quality ingredients, and interesting dishes (a Snickers based dessert... my son will... More

May 15th had dinner at L'Alexandrin. The place was fully booked that evening, with also the presence of a group of 11 people that eve - this did, luckily, not generate too much noise. The place is not very big and rather traditionally decorated. During our dinner it was pretty warm in the restaurant. We opted for the Esprit de... More

I cannot understand why another reviewer recently wrote that this restaurant lost its Michelin star. I carefully checked and they have a one star in 2014 Michelin guide. We had a very pleasant evening there. The food was excellent, and easy to understand (no unnecessary sophistication). The service was friendly, even if the hostess can appear "reserved" sometimes. What was... More

Extremely disappointed with this Michelin Star restaurant - definitely not worth the price. Visited on a Saturday night - they only had 4 tables of guests. Restaurant was hot and stuffy. Seems that even though there were 3 servers, only 1 of them was doing the serving, the other 2 were probably new and simply awaiting orders. Food was average,... More

We recently went to L'Alexandrin on a weekend trip to Lyon, and can easily see why the restaurant lost its Michelin star. While the quality of the food was decent, the service was so bad and rude that it completely ruined the experience. There were only two servers for the room on a Saturday night and they were outrageously slow... More
