A cold windy day and a lot of walking with my 85 year old mother. Found this nearby on Trip Advisor and they took us in for lunch without a reservation--but making a reservation would be a wise idea. This is a very popular spot,...More

Felt like the perfect Bouchon experience. Very French, very old, very yummy. Service was wonderful. Food and wine were terrific. Lots of locals. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. We will visit again if were are ever so lucky as to be in Lyon.
