First time in Lyon, we wanted to try the Bouchons Lyonnais. We had tripe, andouillettes before without being great fans of those but we wanted to taste those ones that make Lyon famous for. The restaurant Laurencin offers +/- the same menus than other restaurants in the street; the place seems popular but It was a real disappointment. The onions... More

First of all, I cannot understand the recent review 1/5 given by a citizen from Netherlands. Rating a restaurant so poorly mostly because of the smell of tripes (duh, do your homework!) and comparing the restaurant's toilet facilities (to change a nappy) to those of petrol stations is completely irrelevant! It is quite a joke really! Maybe those people should... More

With so many restaurant options, we chose this one due to the 15 euro three course meal deal, what a bargain. The food was yummy with much bigger portions than we were used to after 1 month travelling on a low budget :D Staff were very friendly! Would highly recommend the Creme Brûlée, the crispy toffee was amazing!

Never been disapointes by the food there. Proper typical bouchon, who really have to over feed you. (I am Lyonnaise) BUT I HIGHLY RECOMEND to go early or late, it's always really busy. And try to keep place for the dessert ;D even if portions are very big for money, desserts are amazing !

My family and I were very disappointed in this bouchon, said to be an official "bouchon labellisé". We had our first meal in Lyon here, and had high expectations, with Lyon said to be the gastronomic capital of France. We were initially pleased with the reasonable rate of EUR 15 for a full menu inclusive of entree, plat and dessert,... More

Le Laurencin claims to be the only "bouchon labellisé" of Rue Saint Jean. I don't know if it's true. The food was typically lyonnaise. But the decor didn't have the ambience of a bouchon at all. The place was very popular with tourists. Maybe it's due to the location and the price. I took one of the menus at 15... More

The restaurant is on a popular tourist route but is nonetheless homely and pleasant having an authentic feel. The staff were young and dealt politely with our very basic French language skills. Food was good local favourites, classic Lyon peasant dishes, I had tripe, quinelles and creme brulee all were scoffed alongside a nice local beajoulais very nice. Value was... More

Recommended to us by our Air bnb host as a traditional Lyonnais restaurant, we weren't disappointed. Service was great and so was the food.
