My wife and I stopped here for lunch on our last day in Lyon, after spending the morning walking neighborhoods and taking in the sights. Service was prompt, courteous, and attentive, without being fussy. We both had the gratin de deux poissons with rice and salad, and it was excellent (and the price was right: 9 euro each). This we...

As a meeting place for a drink such as espresso, keep L'Opus in mind. Located on the river, its location is scenic as well as central making it perfect to meet friends/family. Prices for drinks are reasonable. Not having eaten there, I cannot make an assessment on the food.

This isn't really special occasion food, but since lots of restaurants in Lyon tend to be closed all the time, you might find yourself wandering the plaza looking for a place to eat. The dishes are reasonably priced & well cooked, and the service is attentive & speedy.

Sunday evenings in August many of the good Lyon restaurants are closed - so we ended at this very nice square at Hotel de Ville - and a big fountain as neighbour. But: the food is not very good - not at all. A medium entrecotes was not meium at all - the cow was still alive....The servants do know... More

I very much enjoyed my lunch here. It was the special of the day. It was a pork dish and though not a big portion it was adequate and reasonably priced.

L'Opus restaurant is one of those places where you feel like at home. Comfortable modern interior, friendly yet professional staff. Menu is simple and delicious. We were leaving with a smile on our faces. If you near by make sure you don't miss out !

Fair value and good food. Atmosphere wonderful with fountain in front, hotel de'Ville to side and on the square. Dinner plates for around 14€ to 16€, beer 3€, coffee American 1.70€. Would revisit again.
