I absolutely adored everything about this place, and I'm not that easy to please! I loved the welcome, the decoration which is typically french, quirky bistro style, the ambiance, the service which was excellent and FAST (sorry to the people who found it slow, do you only come to gobble down your food or for a pleasurable experience?). And as... More

Ok, I was not happy with the cold and boring welcome. In Lyon people are cold. Not really friendly. And the fact they jumped on me to ask me to drink something as appetitive did not help. I requested help from the cook to be sure I will have something recommended. Gooooood choice ! Actually he is not from Lyon... More

We were brought here by a friend who has been going to the restaurant since it opened. It was lunch time and we had the menu de jour express menu. It was 15 euro each and was great. A starter, main and dessert, with coffee. The main was amazing and different, using heritage vegatables and a cereriac puree with lamb.... More

Went there on a Saturday night, it was very busy so would definitely book if you want to go there. Service was friendly but very busy so no time for recommendation or a chat. Nice setting, food was average.

We wanted to visit another restaurant but did not reserve a seat. So had to look for an alternative. We found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Despite not having a reservation, we were offered a seat in the upper levels. The waiter who served us was very friendly. In fact he felt like... More
