Very busy place during lunch with many workers from around coming for a quick and plentiful lunch. Service is very fast even with a big crowd

The veal filet mignon special was the best meal I had in a two week trip through France. Good service. We spoke with the owner who has done a terrific job of developing a restaurant. The décor isn't fancy so you don't have to be dressed up to go there.

We went to this restaurant by chance and were positively surprised! The place is hidden in the industrial complex of St Genis. But once you locate it, you are ushered into a rather large restaurant with several adjoining rooms, bustling with people and good food. The food is french, but very well done mostly and excellently presented. I had a... More

New management has revitalised this place in the last three years, not only resurrecting the lunchtime trade but attracting the evening crowd with a major rehabilitation. Don't be put off by it being in a zone industrielle: it's easy to find, the ambience is good, the service is efficient and friendly, there's now a very attractive (covered in winter) terrasse...

La Villa restaurant is a new addition to St. Genis Pouilly, run by Mickael Hospital who has spent time in London learning the restaurant trade. The local people give strong support to him and he is a very attentive host, watching and managing guests to be sure that everyone is looked after. It is best to book in advance. The... More

A little intimidated by the droves of workman entering the restaurant at lunch time and the surronding industrial area, this restaurant is a hidden treasure. Very friendly, good service & good food. Good lunch time menu

Nice little restaurant hidden in the industrial zone in St. Genis near the Bricomarché. Good and speedy service, good food and a warm and welcoming staff. Can get crowded during Lunchtime when all the local craftsmen descend on the Restaurant, but later in the evening it is pretty calm.

We trusted the reviews on Trip Advisor and were delightfully surprised to find such a great little bistro only a couple of kilometers from our house. It is in a small industrial park, but when you step inside you enter another world. Thank you to all the other reviewers for turning us on to this very nice little restaurant. The... More
