  • Is it touristy or just charming? We stumbled across this quaint little street our first night here. We ate at Comptoir les Marronniers and had a terrific meal with great service. For what it’s worth, ...  more »
  • On this street, restaurants are quickly filled. In the evening, there are 2 services. We can't linger, the servers you are shipping! Bosses stomp of impatience and want to do more services...

  • having discovered this little street more than 40 years ago, it's nostalgia that pull back me but it's a little different.. .too Pat in the eye for restaurants that are now taking advantage of the reputation of mothers... (the mother who at the time was everything from A to Z, the races, peelings, (sometimes helped the husband) cooking, service, dishes...) Now these are real businesses or business is King at the tourist trap limit...

  • My first quenelle and it did not disappoint! This place was packed so you know it has to be good. The restaurant was all dressed up for Christmas but it seems little more festive in there in general compared to some of the other pictures shown in this listing. Would highly recommend this along with all the other restaurants on this street for a great meal!
  • Excellent choice of local produce. Fish meat and cheese
  • Touristy lyonnese place, fixed or a la carte menu, good ambience but long lines on a very crowded street.
  • For 20e, we got three courses. The ambiance and appetizers were really nice but the main course and dessert was very average.
  • Had a great andouillette here (a typical Lyonnaise sausage made only from pork guts). Musicians playing stereotypical French accordion tunes frequently roam the street.
