Located in the old part of the city, with some views on the Saône river. Modern nice interior.

Friendly staff, sometimes you need to wait a bit but it is ok. They are nice and friendly.

Food is good. The starter, Ceviche, was good, good fish quality and good taste, the main, chicken, was good, the dessert (chocolate mousse, coffee ice cream and caramel) was very good.
The have an Extensive wine list with some great choices.

A good place to have some good French food with a modern twist!

Went here for a dinner with the missus in November '17 after a local talked the place up.

Had a three course dinner, and didn't have to be disappointed, the food was very good with fresh tastes and the service friendly. Would go again.

Good comments on the restaurant, the position, the staff and the beverage. However the food was not as good as it looked like. The ingredients were "unconnected" and the garnishments acted only as a frame, without being part of the whole taste of the dish. The ideas were original, however I would expect definitely more taste (I added also some salt..).
I will give it another chance.

This resto is at the west end of the old town past the Metro/funicular station..away from the crowds so eating outside is a pleasure..and the food !!
The menu changes daily and offers a wide variety of fresh well prepared fare with very nice presentation.
Wines are well selected and good value
Staff is excellent and on our second visit we were welcomed like old friends..even continuing a discussion from our previous visit two weeks prior !!

A breath of fresh air just on the edge of the old town - we were in the bright airy upstairs room - service was friendly and efficient - all the food was great and well presented - the bill was reasonable by Lyon standards - would certainly return and will recommend to friends
