After hearing so much about Lyonnaise cuisine, it was a huge disappointment, the food was good, the fish was dry, the bead hard, desert terribly sweet. I would skip it...

I was scared of what I would get when I got there because it is in a quite touristy location but we ended up enjoying our meal. I really liked the Lyonese salad with a piece of bacon on it and a rightly poached egg. If you're around Bellecour and you're hungry I would recommend it.

Waiters were insulting foreign Japanese customers in French... and were pissed off by everything. 1 hour to get a meal that was already cooked and just heated on the fly... Low prices, terrible quality.

I found Chez M'man while searching an inexpensive lunch around the Place Bellecour and it first attracted me by its low price. Mostly visited by locals which is a good sign for a restaurant. I ate salad lyonnaise, beef provencal and creme brulee as a dessert and all was nearly perfect and costs just 15 Euros. Do not think much... More

After a pleasure moment in the lyon street ride, we look for a restaurant. Chez M'man proposes meals speciality from Lyon. They were very good for the price (15-20 by person if menu). The servers were very pleasant ! Excellent moment !

Service was excellent, they have English menu as well, the food was delicious, I had to go back again as there's also a good variety.

The most appropriated note would probably be 3,5/5 given the good price/quality ratio. The food was indeed good but nothing exceptional, however at 15€ for a 3 courses menu I certainly won't complain. Such quality/price is very good. Service was ok, despite our young waiter having a hard time explaining some dishes (he looked quite sleepy and like he didn't... More

There was a couple of spare tables here so we decided to stay and dine. The service was slow and it was pretty cramped. All I can suggest is don't bother with the place! It was horrendous. The salad started had an oddly sharp dressing, with a poached egg on top that was barely cooked. The main wasn't much better,... More

For Lyon, this place offers a good feed at really good value. We had 3 courses on a Saturday night from the 15 Euro menu, which offered a good selection of dishes. Each course was genuinely decent food; not absolutely top notch fayre, but it won't be for that price. I had terrine, then beef provençale & macaroni cheese, and... More

This place was amazing. The service was very fast. Servers very attentive. The ambiance was very intimate and lively. Lastly, the food was phenomenal. I don't think I have eaten that good in a while.
