The building of Les Terrasses de Lyon was once home to a convent, although the food here is anything but stuffy and square. With that said, diners love the divine cuisine and have an almost religious following of Chef Davy Tissot's culinary creations consisting of French nouvelle dishes that incorporate only the freshest seasonal produce. Feast on scrumptious dishes that bring out the best elements of French cuisine and complement it with a succinct glass of wine. The ambiance is chic yet comfortable and sets the mood perfectly for a relaxed meal.
Although founded in 1921, La Mère Brazier caters to Lyon's most elite dining circuit and is continuously recognized for its incredible and inventive cuisine. The kitchen, which has been run by successful chef and restauranteur Mathieu Viannay since 2008, is always churning out classic dishes with a fresh twist to delight even the most discerning palettes. The dining room decor is crisp and modern with white table linens and white walls with art-deco accents on the windows and molding. The clientele ranges from politicians to suits to in-the-know travelers so reservations are highly recommended!
Le Gourmet de Sèze is known for putting a contemporary and modern twist on traditional French cuisine. Chef Bernard Mariller is a local favorite and has quite a devoted following. The specialty here is definitely shellfish St. Jacques with broccoli in truffle juice but the menu is full of seasonal dishes that aim to please. The dining area is rather small but warm and inviting with a classic and sophisticated vibe.
L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges is also known as Paul Bocuse after its celebrity chef. This restaurant has won three Michelin stars and most people have to save for months before dining here. It offers the ultimate experience in classic French dining, right from the impeccable service and jaw-dropping decor to the food presentation and complex flavors. The whimsical façade of maroon and green with bronze plaques belies the luxurious decor of the dining room, replete with vintage chandeliers, archways and potted plants. Truffle Soup, Loup en Croûte (crusted sea bass) with lobster mousse, and Rouget Barbet (red mullet) in layers of potato are just a few of the dishes on their extensive menu. Though you may well have to break the bank, a dinner at this riverside restaurant is regarded a must for all self-proclaimed gastronomes.
