Lucky enough to walk past on an evening stroll. The welcome was warm and the restaurant is an inviting space. Loved the food and the friendly ladies who served us. Will go back when we return to Lyon.

Chanced upon this restaurant as we were walking to see st nizier church. As soon as its midday the crowds come in. I'm not sure how the poor lady runs both floors of the restaurant with little assistance from the kitchen. Great food selections from...More
