We were travelling from the UK arriving in Lyon at 21:30 hrs and needed a meal so three weeks before we booked Le Comptoir d'Ainay as they offered and accepted a 22:00 hrs table reservation. We duly arrived at the restaurant at 22:00 to find it in the dark and all sealed and locked up. We were passing the following... More

We went there with another family and the restaurant was very accommodating even with 3 kids and a stroller. The food was one of the best we had in Lyon. The iberico pig with potatoes was amazing.

Madame had duck cannelloni with a delicious sauce. I had the plat du jour- mackerel fillets. Both excellently cooked and ample quantity for lunch. The gastro bistro seems popular with local residents. Relaxed service and pleasant vibe.

We used Trip Advisor and this was a possibility. We were not disappointed. A small restaurant near Bellacour. Everything was perfect. Service, food, value for money, environment. My 15 yo is vegetarian and she was very happy. I had Scorpion Fish for the first time - delicious!!

Our hotel recommended this small restaurant in the 2eme arr of Lyon & once again the recommendation was spot on. A small bistro which (unlike Brasseries) doesn't rush you to finish eating so they can squeeze one more seating in. Not an extensive menu but just right. My husband & I shared a plate of tempura gambas (crusty outside) which... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We we not disappointed. They operate a menu carte, roughly 27€ for starter and main, 32€ if you add a dessert. We had the shrimp tempura starter, delicious. My wife had the risotto with "encre de seiche", I had the pluma de pork iberico. All great stuff. Wine by the glass.

I cannot speak highly enough about this place and the quality of the food. It is a small restaurant with a short menu: each dish is obviously prepared individually and the flavours and texture are perfect. What is more, the service is charming and efficient, and in good weather one can eat outside. I was in Lyon for 6 nights... More

Lovely restaurant, not big but great service and the food was beautifully presented and delicious. My husband's fillet steak could have been cut with a fork and my lamb chops so good, didn't want the dinner to end.

The restaurant is in a small lovely space with some outdoor seating available as well. The staff members here are pleasant and dedicated. We were very happy with our choices of risotto and cabillaud in a delicious soup, plus we shared an apple tart for dessert. All very delicious and a good values. We reserved in advance using Forchette.
