A truly French experience – good but very traditional: Restaurant L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges aka Restaurant Paul Bocuse (4. August 2019)

I always had a visit at Paul Bocuse on my to do list and with today, that to do is done. It was a lunch visit and I went for the “Menu Bourgeois” (EUR 235.00) which started with an “amuse bouche” which was absolutely delicious. I was absolutely excited after the first couple of bites! […]

Perfect spot to relax before visiting the Institut Lumière: Le Bistro Autrement (26. March 2017)

Perfect spot to relax before visiting the Institut Lumière: Le Bistro Autrement (26. March 2017)

If you are into movies and film history, I can definitely recommend you to visit the ‘Institut Lumière’ but as we are still in France, the opening hours are more of a recommendation than actual opening hours, so I ended up looking for a café to wait until the place actually opens and found ‘Le […]

Outstanding atmosphere and a few taste surprises: Restaurant Les Loges (25. March 2017)

If you want to dine in a Michelin starred restaurant in Lyon, you have to book a couple of weeks in advance. For most of the options, I didn’t stand a chance of getting a table. Luckily, I managed to get one at the Restaurant Les Loges. And it started quite exquisite after the bar […]

Lovely atmosphere but weak service: Bar @ Cour des Loges (25. March 2017)

Lovely atmosphere but weak service: Bar @ Cour des Loges (25. March 2017)

Given the ‘Restaurant Les Loges’ only opens at 7:30pm sharp and we were a couple of minutes early, I ended up in the Bar at the Hotel Cour des Loges. As I am a huge ‘Mule’ fan, I went for the “London Mule (Gin Bombay Sapphire, Lemon, Ginger Beer)” (EUR 14.00). The drink is simple […]

Perfect to hide from rain but not recommended: Café Bar de la Ficelle (25. March 2017)

When it started raining we entered the first café there was and ended up at the Café Bar de la Ficelle – well, I guess else we wouldn’t have entered but given the rain, it seemed like the right option. The place was crammed and for more than 10 minutes we were not attended. After […]

Exquisite service and delicious snails and oysters: Chez Antonin @ Les Halles De Lyon (Paul Bocuse) (25. March 2017)

We walked up and down the isles of Les Halles a couple of times until we could decide where to have our lunch stop. And we went for Chez Antonin – a place specialized in French specialties like oysters and we went for “Spéciales le Gall (Bretagne), No. 2 – a Dozen” (EUR 29.00). I […]

Only in France – a place that only sells foie gras: Foie Gras @ Les Halles De Lyon (Paul Bocuse) (25. March 2017)

I have seen a lot of different things when it comes to food and places to eat at – there is still a lot to go, rest assured. However, a store which is fully specialized in ‘foie gras’ and sells nothing but that (with a very few exceptions) is something you can only find in […]
