This is one of the celebrated ‘Paul Bocuse’ restaurants – just off the large Place Bellecour on the ‘Peninsular’. From a fairly extensive menu we enjoyed a very generous plate of Parma ham (which would have done for both of us), hake, saltimbocca, and salad; and wines – though not the water – were fairly priced. We chose to eat in the conservatory rather than the cosy looking interior, and service was efficient. Unfortunately, though, of our two waitresses one was delightful, the other decidedly not; and we detected an overall feeling of self-satisfaction about the place – and hence our lower grading.

The restaurant was popular alright but it was not very good. The food was so so. Their takes on Moroccan or Italian dishes were a bit bland. No sophisticated techniques were shown. Services should be better. Not too expensive. Nothing's to recommend.

Excellent food, friendly staff, a warm atmosphere - we simply liked this place. The view is also nice, to a park with no traffic outside.

May I start by saying the food is exquisite and well priced for the quality. There is a BUT however. The place is extremely busy and I felt like we were on a conveyor belt. To serve fast and cram more and more people in. The ambience wasn't really there. No charm, no atmosphere and the service was efficient but not attentive. They cleared away bottles that still had wine and plates that still had food on and were being used. I would not come back.

We had high hopes for this restaurant as it was owned by Paul Bocuse.

Positives: the staff were amazing, really friendly and attentive. Couldnt fault them at all they were all fabulous. The restaurant itself is pretty and in a convenient location. The price was reasonable too.

Negatives: the food was just average, nothing that my husband or I ordered was anything more than average. (We went a la carte and had 3 courses, both having different dishes) This is a shame as in Lyon we ate some absolutely wonderful food, even in cheaper bouchons. I expected more from a restaurant linked to such a great chef. Nothing here was anything more than ok.
