I enjoyed a very nice dinner at the Brasserie le Nord tonight which was only marred by the baby and toddler at the adjacent table. Please, this is not the right atmosphere for small children. I'm saying this as a mother. It's too small and...More

We really enjoyed our dinner at Le Nord. The service was delightful and the food very tasty. We went for the menu of the day, which does not necessarily showcases the best Le Nord has to offer in culinary terms , however our dishes were...More

That was a nice dive-in into the bouchon culture of Lyon. We reached that place after we just landed. We were actually meant to go to Chez Georges. But they were exceptionally closed on that evening. Our hotel recommended Le Nord. We ordered simple things...More

Main course 1: The selected sole (on the daily menue and we were there at 7pm) not available so they recommended Sea Bass. The fish was prepared taking way to long to de-bone it, became coldish. The fish was very dry, not `a point` and...More

Part of the Bocuse empire, this charming, traditional, restaurant maintains an excellent quality. (Le Nord is a traditional French Restaurant, other points of the compass have different specialities, so one takes one's choice of international cuisine). We ordered from the menu déjeuner at 23,10€ and,...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Did we receive such "special treatment" because of our origins (British)? I have lived and worked in France for 40 years and am bilingual but felt so upset and humiliated at the end of our meal that I just wanted to leave as quickly as possible. I now wish that I had told the staff exactly what we felt but it was beyond me at that moment. Perhaps the restaurant would like to confirm or infirm this impression of anglophobia at the Nord. Have other English speaking diners experienced this?

J'aimerais savoir pourquoi le personnel du restaurant ne répond pas aux questions posées ou aux remarques de la part des clients. J'avais même écrit à Mr Bocuse mais j'ignore s'il a reçu mon courrier car je n'ai pas reçu de réponse. Dix-huit mois après cette soirée gâchée par le manque de professionnalisme d'un personnel qui ne semblait pas connaître le mot "QUALITE" - qualité de l'accueil, qualité des plats proposés, qualité de l'environnement, je suis toujours en colère. Payer - cher - pour être traités comme des emm****deurs n'est pas acceptable. Mais lorsque l'on se cache derrière le nom de Bocuse on doit se croire intouchable.
