Found this place through the Michelin Guide (app). It was full when we arrived and extremely busy. The waiters were very busy so the service was practical. Food was very well made.

Ate lunch with a companion in October 2015. Old style restuarant interior. Classic Quality Lyon food & "Bouchon". Don't miss if in Lyon!

A very good food, old lyonnaise cusine. If you like light and modern food this is not the right place. If you want to discover the original taste of the Lyon Kitchen this restaurant is perfect! Also very nice and cozy.
