After trawling the Brotteaux area of Lyon on a quiet October Sunday evening, this seemed to be the only restaurant open apart from various kebab houses and Pizza Hut, so was quite pleased to find a fairly traditional looking restaurant. I was served by a polite waiter and was looking forward to a nice meal. I ordered in my best broken French and to be fair to the waiting staff, they were very helpful. Then about 45 minutes passed and I was getting through my basket of bread. Eventually two very apologetic waiters appeared and informed me that the ordering terminal didn't seem to have displayed the order in the kitchen, so they never received the order. As they gave me a large beer and the entree was very nice- Parma ham and melon, I was ready to forgive this. After about another 20 minutes, one of the waiters said would you like a coffee, assuming as it was about 10:30 by then that I was finished. I still had not had my main. This arrived eventually, rump steak with vegetables and mashed potatoes. The rump steak was like a piece of wood, but by this point after a long journey I was beyond caring, so made my way through it. I noted that a couple across from me were having similar problems with the steak while I was waiting. The staff were clearly a bit embarrassed by the whole thing as they offered me a drink as I left - without leaving a tip obviously. This place clearly could do a lot better. The restaurant is a nice environment- nice decor and in a good location, also open when most of Lyon seems to be a ghost town. The management need to get their computer system sorted out and get a chef that can cook rump steak that is more tender than wood, and this place may be worth visiting. Until then, I would avoid.
