It has an English name. It gets real specific about what it specialises in: mostly basic fare, with salmon as the main feature. I ordered a Lasagne aux deux Saumon. Basically, it had fresh salmon baked into the lasagne (instead of the usual beef), with...More

A friendly staff providing efficient service, an incredible variety of nicely cooked salmon dishes, a decent choice of wine and beer, a relaxed atmosphere (even when the place is crowded), a very reasonable pricing ! Will visit again, for sure !

Very confined: tables close to each other and the tiny waitresses could hardly manage to pass but the ambiance was really amazing knowing I normally avoid this kind of places. The food was very good and the waitresses were very efficient and helpful.

The place and the location are very nice. We were expecting a bit better in terms of quality of food. Unfortunately, you can find better close by and despite being good the dish are not welcoming for a next time... Too bad

This is typically a restaurant where they know that tourists only come once, so they don't bother giving you a good meal. I had the papillote de saumon manahattan style. The salmon was very, very dry and cold, there was some crème fraîche in the...More

Dear Costumer, Thank you for your visit at Salmon Shop and for your review on Trip Advisor. Lyon is very busy in July due to Euro or Bastille Day, and Rue Mercière is a very central place. That's why it's sometimes a bit full in...More
