Very nicely located in the older part of Lyon. The restaurant has different rooms to seat smaller groups - perfect for a Business dinner with 12 - service was very good and the food excellent - Foie Gras du Canard, Salade Lyonaise and Creme Brulee.

While attending a congress we visited the brasserie. The food selection and wine card looked promising and the 4 of us ordered a variety of starters and mains. While my veal was very nicely done, I was a bit underwelmed by the side of maccaroni with cheese. I would have expected that type of combo to represent "French" cuisine in... More

I tried the Easter menu today for 52 euros, with appetizer, main course, cheese and dessert. It's a bit pricy in my opinion but also quite good. I had the foie gras for starter -excellent, the lamb as main -tender and cooked perfectly, and then the cheese and the desserts (they all looked inviting, I had a hard time choosing).... More

We have only eaten here once before - it was OK but a bit chaotic. Food just OK Service just OK The menu in the Bocuse brasseries are more or less thesame but with a few dishes from the various regions - this time Northern France s the name suggests.

Perhaps because we were not expecting too much we were pleasantly surprised - excellent service and very good food. As others have stated, do not expect 'unique, innovation' but well presented and tasty dishes. Honestly the appetizers and desserts stood out, with the main dishes very nice. Atmosphere not stuffy at all. BTW, we did not have a reservation and... More

I had been recommended this restaurant and it didn't let down. Food was amazing as was the wine. Not over the top with price for the class of food!

Really disappointed by the Brasserie du Nord of Paul Bocuse. This is not a personal feeling since the whole table left half of the main dish in their plate. Expensive for what it offers compared with what you can get in Lyon for half that price. Never again.

The food was absolutely brilliant! It was an absolute privilege to be able to eat at one of Paul Bocuses' restaurants. The wait staff were a bit arrogant but over all it was a great experience! Would go again if I ever get the chance.

Had a meal here before boarding the Eurostar home. Food was good , but service was a bit rushed and erratic . Convenient for Eurostar Terminal.
