Avoid this place, seriously. Food wasn't bad but the service was terrible. Dirty glass, dirty table, unfriendly staff. Shame cause the location is beautiful.

Loved the food here at La Gargouille. A traditional Bouchon the food is not what you get at the average cafe or restaurant in Lyon. I had saucisson and was delighted with the flavour. I'll visit again before I leave Lyon
