Excellent but not outstanding.
The brasserie is good, good wine and good food too.
(But I would have expected better)
Interesting location and tipical environment.

We went here on the basis of tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Imaginative cooking well executed. A la carte or fixed menu. I had 3 course fixed menu at 29.50€, basically choice of meat or fish. Service efficient and pleasant. Good French wine selection. Would certainly recommend.

We had dinner here our first night in Lyon so were very tired from @ 30 hour trip from our home to here. Server spoke excellent English taking that brain work from us. We enjoyed an addictively good hazelnut liquor while deciding on dinner choices. My wife started with a veloute from heaven-perfect cream base with lardon and large, tender scallops-I tasted and could have made a meal of just that and their great country bread. Monk fish next, also yummy. I devoured a delightful pan fried cod, garlic potatoes (yum) and a salad. A good white wine went well with our fishes. We finished with a fluffy chocolate/almond dessert. Tables not too crowded and very clean look to the place. Worthy of your business.

We had a really good meal here at what we regard as a reasonable price for the city centre. The menu went well beyond the traditional Lyon specialities, good though these can be. A cut above the popular places on rue des Marronniers nearby. Handy for the local theatres too.

We ate at Brasserie Francotte twice during our recent stay in Lyon, initially because it was a short walk from where we were staying and was recommended by our hotel. We went back because we enjoyed it so much. Staff were helpful and welcoming, and spoke English. The food was of good quality ... perhaps a little pricey, but very good. Service is good. Some very nice choices on the menu. Definitely worth trying if you are in Lyon.
