My friends and I had our last dinner in France at this wonderful restaurant offering authentic Lyonnais cuisine. Very comfortable and traditional setting with beautiful painted tile on the walls. Service was attentive and friendly.

A great dining experience in a Parisian atmosphere. Service excellent and menu interesting and varied. Cottled eggs were great. And perfectly done. The scallops as a evening special were the best ever. Have the soufflé....yumm.

Food is great. Busy and atmospheric. You might want to check the menu out before going - quite short and some dishes are very traditionally French! Don't go if you're a veggie.... Wine pretty good value too!

Delicious regional tastes, good wine by the glass/bottle and great bilingual service. Plus relatively affordable. The 'fish souffle' is particularly special. And the Beaujolais washes it all down just nicely.More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in

Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890. It still has the red painted wood store front, and the original sign "Maison Lyonnaise".Frédéric Thévenet, head of the brigade, prepares "good, old fashioned, hearty food" but adds a modern touch. Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes shavings; Lyonnaise-style quenelles, Nantua sauce…
