Visited the district Croix-Rousse and stumbled upon this little cafe/restaurant. Friendly staff, fairly cheap for Lyon and pretty good food. Atmosphere was very nice, nothing like the lower areas and the old city center, you feel like in an village rather than a big city....More

I was headed to the Brasserie des Ecoles, given the great reviews. I sat outside for 10 minutes and no one paid any attention to me, despite the fact that the terrace was anything but full. Eventually someone saw me - but didn't come over!...More
