Wonderful three course dinner here for 23 EUR (excl wine) with a wide selection of local wines. Had the deer shoulder as a main - was delicious and very tender. Service was great - had a lovely time! Apple tart with salted caramel icecream for dessert!

In the middle of the village with a very nice seating area in the courtyard. Very good value for money. I would highly recommend it

We landed in Lyon and went straight there for the first meal during four days in the region. Good friendly service, good simple menu and a lot of fun. Great wine list.

After a morning visiting a couple of wineries in Côte Rôtie, my husband and I wanted a nice bistrot lunch and the manager at the last winery recommended this place. I can see why it's popular, as it seems to be one of the few places with a bit more "refined" cuisine and a proper wine list (which is surprising... More

we had a very good time there and although it was quite packed due to the marche du vin, we were served with a smile a good lunch coming with some of the best wine of the northern rhone valley. All are from producers very well known but still humble and simple. Price wise, the best value is definitely with... More

We visited this little restaurant while staying overnight in Ampuis, and booked ahead based on previous TripAdvisor reviews - glad we did as the restaurant was very busy. The staff are very friendly, and the food was delicious. The 22 Euro set price menu was excellent value for the quality of food provided, and had some nice choices. Would definitely... More

Be sure to make a reservation! The wine bar and bistro are fantastic. An excellent selection of wines and a well thought out menu choice. The staff are great, knowledgeable on the wines and the food. The ambience is terrific, it's not at all 'down market' as Mike E said. You walk past the kitchen when walking between the wine... More

Good value set Menu at 22 Euros. Excellent wine list. Looks a little downmarket - you virtually walk through the kitchen to get to the tables at the back of the wine shop. Don't be put-off - for a local bistro it's a cut above the norm.

Great wine list, creative flatbreads, honest cooking, asparagus in season and every table but us a local. What's not to like?

. . . that the open space/patio is so wonderful behind this storefront. The restaurant is owned by three winemakers and the food is excellent.
