Have been here at least 3 times. Service is stylish. Food is good. The tartare de lieu did not convince me (too much dressing that hid the taste of the fish). The scallops however were delicious. Unfortunately I have never been there in summer, because they have a good terrace with a nice view on the city of Lyon.

I visited my son and family in Lyon for the weekend. They took me to this lovely restaurant which was perfect. I had been before about 12 years ago and it was memorable then. My 5 year old Grandaughter was with us and as it was an evening reservation she was welcomed by the very professional staff and made very... More

Busy and nice atmosphere, we started dinner in the veranda to finish off on the terrace on a hot summer evening. Professional service. Had the smoked salmon brouillade and Fletan fish, all very delicate. Book ahead in you want the terrace!

Hot June day, busy city, here is a wonderful oasis of calm. Light , airy garden, good views, lovely place. But very good food, really pleasant service and good value make Maison Villemanzy even more special.

Need to book this popular restaurant. Views give the location the edge over other of the great choices that abound in Lyon. Efficient service but other places much friendlier but perhaps being picky. We started with a Communard, a local speciality of cassis and Beaujolais. Interesting but wouldn't order again. Set menu gave a good choice and I was very... More

We ate at this restaurant the only other time we were in Lyon, nearly a decade ago, when we were staying nearby. We had such happy memories that we wanted to come back. Even though we weren't sure of the restaurant's name, and so couldn't verify that it still existed, we decided to retrace our steps and try to locate... More

It is a beautiful house, well decorated inside. Different from many french restaurants, tables are separated from one another, leaving you enough space to seat comfortably and not sharing the conversation with everybody else. Waiters are very educated and friendly. The night we went, they had a menu of almost 30 euros, including starter, main dish and a cheese or... More

I've eaten at this restaurant twice and each time it was absolutely superb! The selection was excellent, the quality was very high and the prices were an excellent value for such outstanding food! Also, the restaurant is located in the Croix-Rousse region of Lyon in the old part of the city where silk was once made with a beautiful view... More
