    A nice little french bistrot with a really creative way of preparing the food - my highlight was the desert, with a Tomato-Sorbet I haven‘t had in this quality in many many years! thumbs up!

    This restaurant is beautiful in every way. The food was beyond excellent, the service was friendly, and the price was excellent considering quality. It is not even close to the tourist area and so worth it to see more parts of the city and to get the best meal we had in Lyon.

    Excellent food and service in a non tourist area at a good cost. Highly highly recommend for anyone that likes good authentic French food.

    We made a reservation weeks in advance since we were a large group (7 kids and 12 adults) and traveling from the US. They had the table all ready for us with no wait. The menus were in French only but they patiently went over each item. They also recommended that all of the kids get the same dish of chicken and potatoes in order to simplify things, which we, and the kids, were totally fine with. The kids were served first, which was great, and when their plates came out, we were all jealous because even their simple dish looked so delicious. But, when our plates arrived, all jealousy disappeared. Everything was beautiful delicious! They also were able to safely accommodate my Celiac / gluten free needs, as well as a vegetarian dish for my friend. She said it was the best meal she ever had. It was our favorite meal of the whole 2 week trip through Paris, Chamonix and Lyon.

    Upon arrival the waitress was very grumpy and not welcoming - however we were served by Lea who was lovely and translated the menu for us . We ordered a fish dish which was under cooked and also Chicken supreme which was very pink. Asked the grumpy waitress for bill.and she was unhelpful. We would not go back

    The finest traditional-seeming food, but elevated through creativity and care and exceptional ingredients. All in a really lovely space, with great staff, and the super-cute mascot of the house, Lucien.
