We had a great dinner there and would definitely go back there for lunch or dinner. For breakfast, I had a not very good, quite runny omelet, so if I went there for breakfast, I'd have toast.

We stopped by Aux Cadrans for breakfast before heading to a meeting. The food was great - loved the eggs and bread. The service was pretty good - we had to flag them down a few times but nothing out of the ordinary.

This very busy place stands out of the crowd of brasserie-style restaurants around the Gare de Lyon. It offers a good price quality ratio and professional, efficient service with a cuisine of unassuming parisian brasserie classics. I like the fact that the menu is varied enough for every taste while still having everything homemade from fresh ingredients.

I had two hours at lunchtime between the Eurostar and the TGV, so I popped into Aux Cadrans for a leisurely bite. I was dragging a heavy suitcase behind me, but no matter: the gruff but friendly waiter, typically Parisian, lodged it in an appropriate place and then seated me at a good table within sight of it. As it... More

Went there for dinner, which is clearly not their busiest time of the day. The ambiance is nice, the service was warm and efficient. On the plus side the wine selection is good value and the homemade desserts are excellent. The main dishes were decent but nothing to write home about, very basic with sides barely warm, despite prices on... More

As I didn't have time to waste, this place ticked that box (2 minutes from Gare de Lyon). Food and service good too.

Needed to grab lunch during break between arrival from Dijon and onward Eurostar journey from Gare du Nord. Decided to eat around Gare de Lyon as much more pleasant. This place is just across from the main entrance on the bustling Boulevard Diderot. I had a very good plat du jour and glass of wine. Service was efficient and pleasant,... More
