We were surprised to find that they had a place for us the next day for lunch (dinner was fully booked). The atmosphere is very good and friendly. Nice-casual dress code. The food was good and beautifully plated. The service was a bit young and...More

We had a great lunch here and enjoyed the chique though informal atmosphere. You can watch the cooks preparing the meals and service is very good. Not too expensive, refined menu (3 courses/39 euro’s). Must do when you’re in Lyon.
