This is very famous place in the area. If you wants to eat meat it's good place to do it and it's quite an original place, in the past time was the place where they kill the cows. Anyone of the meats is ok . The dishes are generous and the price is a little expensive

Been there with friends. if you like meat, do not try it.... too big to be good. waiters are too busy to take care of you and be polite. Once you are done eating, you can wait for hours for the table to be clean and the waiter taking your dessert order. You could die without them noticing. Avoid this... More

No fabric table cloth, casual venue (borderline tacky)but wuth a huge meaty menu! Portions are huge and prices friendly, i strongly advise you to stop at Ninkasi for a good beer after.

A perfect vegetarian.........no wait, this place is for meat lovers only!!! Amazing cuts of meat, cooked perfectly and good side dishes and wine to match. Be aware, LED lights are super bright, decor is terrible and service ok most of the time, but the meat is epic!!

I've been to Lyon several times, and every time I've been in the city I've visited the Carnegie Hall as it's a favourite of my friend who is a local. Good food, good service. You know what you are going to get, beef and lots of it!

If meat is your love you cannot miss this place. Nice veranda on a swimming pool in summer. Reasonable prices. Top quality. Every time I am in Lyon for work I go there. Every time is a Nice experience. Service simple but you don't care. Food is the reason you are there.

I was recommended this as THE place to have meat. For that yes it's great, handy for the stadium, however it's a bit out of the way if your just visiting for a weekend , wouldn't recommend for veggies...

Been there with 2 colleagues a friday evening. Crowded place, quite noisy but I had there the best steak i ever ate. Quite a variety of wine too. If you don't know what to eat trust the personnel to guide you and you will not be deceived.

The best meat restaurant at Lyon. All the locals recommend it. Quality - price very good. Big portions and the potatoes are very tasty that go in each dish.
