A good address that not many locals know about. As good for the food as for the convivial atmosphere.

NileGuide Expert tip:

Go with an open mind. Some dishes, like the veal head with Gribiche sauce, sound intimidating but are actually delicious.


Located near the Estacade market, this bouchon lyonnais-type restaurant opens early and stays open for late lunches. With non-stop morning service, you can enjoy what the Lyonnais call a m√Ęchon--a mid-morning snack of hearty fare like oysters, veal trotter salad, and homemade terrines.

The decor, with a mural of pigs and cows grazing in mountain pastures, adds a bit of country kitsch, but you don't come here for the frills, you come here for the good food at good prices in an authentic, under-the-radar restaurant.

The dishes are those that made bouchon famous: Bobosse andouillette, rabbit terrine, lamb trotters, and poultry liver pie. For dessert, the cherry clafoutis and chestnut charlotte offer a sweet finish.
