I usually avoid these types of places because they are simply too touristy. The entire street, which is cobble-stone and charming, is wall-to-wall tourist restaurants. Nothing wrong with that, I just prefer more authentic. I was pleasantly surprised by the food. I had a 17...More

Rue des Marronniers is a mixed bag: plenty of restaurants but few that make a positive impression. Le comptoir des marronniers is one of those good places. The menu lyonnais is competitive with the traditional fares well cooked, and the staff is friendly if busy....More
