Le Voute Chez Lea, what a very pleasant dining experience, lovely "entree" mackerel in aged vinegar and Lyon sausage with pistachios. Quenelles x 2 for mains.......absolutely magnificent followed by prunes in Armagnac and Valhrona Chocholat Gateaux all washed down with a lovely Red. Staff extremely helpful and spoke good English. Plenty of well to do locals who were obviously regulars.... More

We had lunch in this restaurant based on the recommendation of a friend from Lyon who thinks it is one of the current best 2 "bouchons lyonnais". Location - On a little square, close to the center. Easy to find and a nice walk in the neighbourhood afterwards. Quality of food - Excellent traditional local food. Service - It was... More

We dined at La Voute Chez Lea on the recommendation of our Hotel concierge, and it did not disappoint. I was in the mood for chicken, which is not popular in Lyon in the summer, but one of the signature dishes of this charming old-world style restaurant is their Chicken in Old Wine Vinegar, served with a side of macaroni...

A charming traditional cafe. Friendly but non intrusive service, they easily translate and speak English. The food is traditional. The saussicon starter was good, it came in a creamy stock sauce. I had the chicken in a vinegar creamy sauce. Without the sauce the chicken is a little strong, but with the sauce it's really good. Try it. He had... More

Delightful little restaurant with very friendly and capable staff. Made us feel very welcome. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her filet, simply prepared with butter and mushrooms. I had the 3 course menu, a good value @ 29 euros. My chicken had a creamy rich sauce with a bit of tartness from vinegar -- an unusual, but tasty meal. The mesclun... More

Food lovers out there: this is the place for you!!! The menu offers a varied choice: as a starter we had macaroni gratin and as mains a tournedos grille each, one with an anchovy sauce and the other with a tarragon sauce. The desserts are unbelievably good as is the house wine. No wonder the locals frequent this place which... More

We wanted a bouchon experience and chose Chez Lea mainly because it's my name ! We were delighted with the experience - great food and lovely setting. I'm not sure it is a bouchon - seemed like a Plat de Jour restaurant to us - but we would still recommend it and would go back for another meal there. The... More

Visited with a group of friends, we were 14 in number so the restaurant was able to give us a separate room which was great. It was a lovely evening with nice food. I felt however that the service was a little impersonal and brisk. I think that they were probably busy and could have done with another member of... More

On a Saturday in March, it was an all French clientele lunching. The place is beautifully presented and the proprietress is active in all areas. No mobile phones were seen (what bliss). Several smaller rooms for functions (I wish I was in business still). Serious food (quenelles, salade Lyonnaise, Saucisse de Andouillette). House wine (côtes du Rhône of course) is... More

Lyon just proves you don't have to spend tons of money to eat good food. Our salad with herbs was excellent. I had Poulet au Vieux vinaigre and it was amazing. My wife had the veal with tartar sauce, it was great. The desserts were excellent too! Very near the city center. Great location.
