A very pleasant environment with very friendly service. Easily located close to the Rhone river. Very Lyonnais menu: an outstanding salad with juicy lardons et a perfectly cooked egg. Also the quenelle and the ravioles were really good!

The wine and potatoes "au gratin" were very good. The meat (beef) was of a good quality but tasteless. The dessert was ok. The waiter (seem to be the chief waiter on the 14th of January) made us feel anxious since the beggining of our...More
