We were at a bookshop paying for a large tome before I asked for recommendation for a place nearby and was pointed towards Les Adrets. We were warned that reservations were required but we could give it a try.
When we arrived we were given a place but it was supposed to be a share table, and our partners did not show up when we were there. While waiting for the menu, the waitress (1 of 2) came up and said there's no menu and we can choose between two items for appetizer and mains. To try out what they had to offer, we ordered one of each. Since this was also the first day of Beaujolais Nouveau, there was a bottle of it on the table as well.
Appetizer was smoked salmon salad and beef pastry. Both were prepared nicely. Salad had just enough tang to it without being overpowering.
Mains on the day we were there was fillet of St Pierre and a beef dish that reminds me of Bourgoignon, cooked in red wine sauce. Both of which were prepared nicely to our taste. There's not much choice here, you take what they give you. The good news is that the preparation is pretty good so there's no need to be fussy when you eat here.
Dessert was a collection of 3 sweets and cakes. All nicely prepared.
Unlike other restaurants in France, for Les Adrets you walk up to the counter and you pay. The surprise of the day is that the cost for this lunch set menu was only 17€ per person, including the bottle of Beaujolais. Not only was the food good, but the price was very affordable as well. The service was fast but we didn't feel as though we were ignored at all. Not much english spoken, so be prepared.
Great find for us. Perhaps one of the best meal we've had in Lyon.
