While the staff speak English and offer menus in English, the food is unrelentingly typical local dishes served in the traditional way. The focus on meat from all parts of the animal may be challenging for some but if you're keen to try typical Lyonnaise...More

I chose this place casually and I was very lucky. A real local restaurant different from other more touristic, a proof of this was the presence of a family from Lyon at the table next to mine. I chose the lunch menu for 20€, very...More
