It was a real pleasure to have dinner at this restaurant. Very good French cousine, good wine and cordiality. The service was a little too slow, but the restaurant was full and they were very busy. Everything was very good anyway!

The bass and the tuna were excellent, grilled to perfection. Not to forget the delicious ducks for the kids. The service was excellent and the waitress was very helpful. If you are in Lyon, you must try it out.

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant, sat outside on the evening. The food was well cooked and tasty with good selection of wines. Not over pricey either. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Worth a visit.
