When you get to this restaurant, you are guaranteed the absence of noisy neighbours. Its glass facade has an uninterrupted view of the Fresco of the People of Lyon (Fresque des Lyonnais), which honours outstanding personalities who have marked Lyon's history, like Saint Exupéry, the Lumière brothers, Paul Bocuse, Bertrand Tavernier, etc...
Inside, you'll feel right at home. A former alumnus of the Bocuse brasseries, Franck Delhoum, along with Florian Remont, practices a cuisine that reworks traditional dishes with market produce. There is a recognizable freshness in the dishes when one tastes the red mullet stuffed with anchovies and served with a leek fondue and watercress coulis, or a crumble-like Mediterranean vegetables confit with olives and fresh cheese.
At lunch, go for the seasonal menu. In the evening you can choose between the All Vegetable and the Omnivore Menu. Note: just next door is their second address, the Potager du Bistro, a great place to share a dish and a glass of wine.
