“Best meal of our trip”
Reviewed 12 November 2013 via mobile

We had checked out TripAdvisor and thought we would try the No2 rated restaurant in Lyon. C'est superbe! It is very small with a set price menu of€29.50 with 3 choices in each plus the daily specials. We didn't think we would get in, but a Tuesday night in November is not high season, so we had no trouble getting a table. We had a table for two by the front window, which gave us some entertainment as we watched some Lyonnaise drivers 'touch parking' into parking spaces that were smaller than the length of the cars concerned. Our waiter was so friendly and helpful, with his English being better than my French. I would certainly eat there again tomorrow but alas we are leaving Lyon.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Made a reservation at archange earlier this week and it was a delight. Very professional and friendly service as well as a deliciously prepared meal. The dishes were refined and incorporated seasonal vegetables, so tasted remarkably fresh. Best value I have come across in Lyon thus far - will definitely be returning!

“One of our highlights of our trip”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

In French terms we arrived quite early that evening (7.30pm), there were only two tables occupied so far… We could choose our self a nice table at the window. The cosy atmosphere and the friendly host made us feel very comfortable from the very beginning we arrived.

My friend ordered a classic starter: smoked salmon with dill and pomegranate. I had vegetable ravioli with soup of black salsify, beans and truffle. On a cold autumn evening like this I couldn’t have imagined a better starter than this, wow what a taste! As main course we both ordered fried sole with scallops, cream of peas, mango and pistachio. Again this was a bull’s eye! We finished with in rum poached pear with chocolate, and a tartlet of red fruit and figs. Delicious!

The host was very friendly and made our evening one of the highlights of our trip to Lyon!

Reviewed 4 November 2013 via mobile

Very good food with excellent service and good value for what you get. Only fault is that the restaurant smelt a bit sewagey, not their fault but otherwise highly recommended

“Outstanding Value and Food!”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Since Trip Advisor ranked this restaurant as the top in Lyon, we gave it a try and fully agree with pass diners assessments. For 91 euros, we had an outstanding price fix meal and a bottle of very good wine. While the quantity of food was below American standards, I did not leave hungry. As indicated in the photo's, food presentation was excellent. I highly recommend anyone visiting Lyon, to visit Archange.
