Aside the food, the service was goid, romantic atmosphere and decoration, local people eat here so i guess they enjoy the food. A small well done steak, simple salad, average lasagna, reasonable prices. Try to find a better place in the endless options of lyon.

I ended up at this place after trying to go somewhere else and then finding it was closed for 2 weeks. I then meandered through the old town realising that it was full of tourist restaurants. Yuk! This one also looked very touristy but it also looked popular which in my book is always a good sign. So I went... More

I had a dinner with friends here, so couldn't really choose the place and I was worried when I saw the reviews. The place is very charming, but it's definitely a tourist trap for people who are looking for typical food from Lyon. Sizes were poor, food was very average, service was slow and they only accept cash. I wouldn't... More

charming postcard place but definitely to be avoided. Food is terrible, poor cooking skills, no seasonning, no taste, no attention, dished out without any care on dirty plates. It's way over priced for the quality and experience. Pass your way fellow!

I went there twice: for lunch in October and for a dinner in May. Located in a nice little square seems to be a nice place. We admired dishes and service in October, so I took other visitors in May to dinner there. That was super-slow, the dishes were not all served at the same time (that's smth exceptional for... More

Shockingly bad place. From the rude manager greeting us with a question as to whether we had the means to pay for our meal to Maunel the waiter requiring two attempts to get our order. It's course arrived and was ok. Some of the second course arrived, incinerated lamb chops and frozen chips... Inedible... Sadly that's all we got. We... More

Went to A La Traboule. It is located on the middle of the tourist trap on the old town, but I like going here every time I'm in Lyon. Good food - had a typical tourist menu of Sallad lyonnaise, a beef and a tarte Praline. Very good !

We had Dinner here. We had the weekly menu and paid only € 15 for 3 courses. The starter was just 4 slices of meat. The main was very dry fish with very dry rice. The dessert, pannacota, was okay. The staff was very weird. There were about 4 waiters who serverd all tables. Very often we were asked twice... More

Ate here on a Saturday night during Euro 2016. The place was full of locals and tourists alike. It's quite small inside but the food and service didn't suffer for this. Having seen some of the other reviews, I wonder if they were in the same place as we were. They definitely do speak English - perhaps it's how the... More

Unfortunately my 15-year old son and i ended having dinner in this awful restaurant. The manager is very charming when he invites you to come to his restaurant, but once you sit in the table they (manager, waitresses, etc) forget you even exist. The waitress never offered the aperitif (even though I ordered the most expensive menu), so I just... More
