The day menu had a lot of good choices. All courses where delicious and with good visual presentation. The house wine Vioglier was of good quality. I recommend this restaurant with nice environment on this lovely square. Service was good.

We chanced on this after being turned away by La Table de Suzanne (see my review) and couldn't have been luckier. We had a lovely dinner and were looked after very well. Good food at a reasonable price in pleasant surroundings.

The set menu (with 3 choices of starters, 3 for the main dish and plenty of desserts) is probably the best deal one can find in Lyon. You'd better book in advance since the place is packed with regulars who seem to eat in every day. A place you need to visit once in Lyon.

Had lunch with my wife after looking for a place to eat in Lyon. Very nice place, not big at all, great atmosphere and very good food. Impeccable service. Definitely recommend.

A fair-priced lunch menu at € 19.00 enhanced by a 50cl bottle of Pouilly Fuisse, which was rather more than the 3 courses. Sitting outside was pleasant, even seated next to a smoker and service was reasonable, if a little languid. First course avocado wasn't ripe enough for the teaspoon provided, but the prawn filling was ace. Fish main was... More

Lovely place to dine "en terrasse" in the summer. The food is quite good and very friendly service. We went quite late resulting in an hour wait between courses and not much left on the dessert list for us. My friend's crème brûlée was served cold - yikes. I recommend going on the earlier side. I think you will have... More

Ate here with a large group - everyone had the menu a 29 euros. Food was good, but not great. Chicken appetizer was interesting but under seasoned; salmon main was very good. Had the fromage for dessert -- very good, but all of my companions were raving about the sweet desserts (particularly the profiteroles). Well located on a beautiful square... More

Delicious food with a wide selection on the fixed and a la carte menus. It was full of locals which is always a good sign! The staff were particularly friendly and helpful.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a Frenchman I had met the night before at the Brasserie Georges.. He recommended Le Carre des Saveurs, especially for fish dishes. I went there the following day for lunch and enjoyed it very much. The day was beautiful and so I chose an outside table in the attractive square that the restaurant... More

Great 3-course dinner for € 20,-, value for money! Nice selection of vines.
