Description: A Lyon-based outpost of the exotic Blue Elephant fleet of restaurants, Blue Elephant Lyon showcases luxurious Thai cuisine from a fleet of celebrated native chefs. Centuries-old recipes have been passed down through generations, and Blue Elephant's rare herbs, spices and fruits are sourced direct from Bangkok. In the Blue Elephant dining room, nestle in a lush alcove or sit beside the rushing waterfall, while encircled by sprawling plans, tress and elegant orchid arrangements.

Reservation : you would think you are welcome, but the reservation is through Hilton Hotel desk where they just tell you they are to busy to take it call later, or go on the website, that, BTW, does not work with our browser.
Service : just great, people are very friendly and helpful, quick, professionnal and efficient.
Menu : great choice, but I am not going in a Thaï restaurant to taste the 3 or 4 courses that include truffle oil (probably not from real truffles, and certainly not Thaï). It seems that everytime we go there are more dishes with this truffle oil.
Dishes : Every dish has been very tasty and produces are very fresh, combinations are quite creative.

This restaurant is one of the best. The service is extremely good and the food is exceptional. I would eat there everytime I visit Lyon.

Interesting menu, good service. I would have preferred a greater degree of heat in the spicing. A convenient pace to eat if you are staying in the Lyon Hilton.

If you stay in the Hilton Hotel - the Blue Elefant restaurant is very good, service excellent but also the food whatever we've tasted starters, meet or fish - was delicous.
