My daughter had made the reservations, and had been assured that they could handle her nut allergy and my allergy to eggs. When we arrived, they again assured us it would be no problem. Halfway through my quenelle I started feeling nauseous, and stopped eating....More

We have tried Esprit de Lyon and Tendances Légumes menu and they were both very delicious. I will highlight 2 comments though : the decoration is a bit special with the orange color and the prices of the wine list are very high.

A small restaurant in a cozy style. The chef worked also for Paul Bocuse, now he created his own style of a modern light kitchen. Friendly service, and the prices are more than reasonable for the high quality level.

We went for my sister-in-law's 21st birthday. We had the chef's table in the kitchen etc., but it doesn't matter. the sheer wit, attention to detail and flavour were remarkable. If you're in Lyon, and can get in, fill your boots.

May 15th had dinner at L'Alexandrin. The place was fully booked that evening, with also the presence of a group of 11 people that eve - this did, luckily, not generate too much noise. The place is not very big and rather traditionally decorated. During...More

I cannot understand why another reviewer recently wrote that this restaurant lost its Michelin star. I carefully checked and they have a one star in 2014 Michelin guide. We had a very pleasant evening there. The food was excellent, and easy to understand (no unnecessary...More

Extremely disappointed with this Michelin Star restaurant - definitely not worth the price. Visited on a Saturday night - they only had 4 tables of guests. Restaurant was hot and stuffy. Seems that even though there were 3 servers, only 1 of them was doing...More
