“Could not praise this place enough! Dont miss it!!!!”
Reviewed 22 February 2011

Im a cheese lover and was very excited about this place before I got to France - I wasnt disappointed. The two guys who work there are friendly and although when we asked if they spoke English, they said just a little, we thought they were excellent. On the first day we had the mixed plate which had 3 cheeses and 2 meats for 13 Euros and a "pot" of red wine (46cl) which was 8 Euros. It came beautifully presented on a slate with accompaniments to the cheese such as chutney, nuts, cumin and figs. The bread is in a little sack and is more than enough. The second time we went back we picked our own cheese from a huge selection. We didnt know what to choose but the owner was very helpful and made great choices for us! Overall I would say this is a great little place - modern and central. im so glad I did my research before I went to Lyon - I would hate to have missed it.
