Restaurants Near Presqu'île/Second Arrondissement in Lyon

Lyon's 2nd Arrondissement (southern Presqu'île) is packed full of restaurants, particularly along Lyon's famous Rue des Marronniers, located in the 2nd Arrondissement, just next to Place Bellecour. But the remainder of Lyon's visitor attracting 2nd Arrondissement - which includes the areas of Cordeliers, Bellecour, Ainay, Perrache and the Confluent - is also vibrant with restaurant life. Here are a few of the top picks from the area:

Starting with the restaurant-lined Rue des Marronniers; this famous padestrianised street is famous for the traditional Lyonnaise Bouchon, and among the leaders of the Bouchon pack on Rue des Marronniers; Chez Mounier and La Mère Jean are two typical Lyonniase Bouchons, so you can expect to find lots of hearty home-style cooking and a warm welcome at both these restaurants. In addition, both of these restaurants are reasonably priced, which is a bonus, given their reputation in the city.

Next - for when all that hearty Lyonnaise cuisine is getting a bit heavy - two great pizza restaurants are located in close proximity to Place Bellecour; Chez Carlo and Pizza Pino. And for some very sophisticated (oh so French) dining, try Caro de Lyon; the restaurant is a little bit pricey, but worth every penny.

And finally, leaving the king of all Lyonnaise Brasseries until last; Brasserie Georges has legendary status in Lyon, partly owing to the sheer size of the place (the restaurant seats 600 plus guests), but also owing to its long history in Lyon, which dates back to 1836.
