Overview of My Favorite Places in Lyon!

An entree from Le Fleurie

And by places, I mostly mean restaurants!  :)   My “hands-down” favorite restaurant in Lyon is Le Fleurie in the 7eme arrondisement, but it is only open during the week for lunch.  My husband and I try to eat here at least once a month!  ~15E for lunch, very gourmet and the menu changes daily!!!

I also love Les Potager des Halles in the 1ere arr near the Saone.  ~15E for lunch, ~32E for dinner.

Goman Etsu is a great Japanese restaurant that only serves okonomiyaki.  I <3 their green tea tiramisu!  Located on rue Lanterne

An entree from L’Escale des Saveurs

L’Escale des Saveurs is also really good and very artistic.  Close to Place Sathonay

I haven’t tried it yet, but I am really excited to go to Toutes les Couleurs, which is a bio restaurant!  In the 1ere arr, north of the Opera.

For coffee and milkshakes, Le tasse livre is really great.  My first experience with milkshakes in France was at a beach, where they just dumped one scoop of ice cream into a big cup of milk and blended it!  So, you can understand how excited I was when I discovered this place!  Also located near Place Sathonay in the 1ere arr.

For Jazz, I have visited two places so far.  Bec de Jazz and La Clef de Voute.  Bec de Jazz was fun, but doesn’t even open until 23h and was kinda smoky.  I really liked La Clef, but it was pretty small, so no room for dancing.  There is also another club that I haven’t been to yet on rue Lanterne.

The famous Quenelle from Chez Mounier

My favorite bouchon thus far is Chez Mounier on rue des Marroniers near Place Bellecour.  Order the Quenelle!  They have the best one in town (that I have tasted)!  Miam-miam!

Berthom is a nice bar in the 5eme arr that serves Belgian beers.  They also have a happy hour which is great for my wallet.  smile

I also love Kafe l’Impromptu  which has cheap beer, a cool vibe, and a great view of the city.  You can also borrow their petanque balls to play in Place Colbert!  Located in Croix-Rousse
