fANNY suggestions for Michelin restaurants :

: amazing location on top of Fourvière hill overlooking the city center lit up below. Dining room contemporary and airy with contemporary art pieces in it. Cuisine is classic french with a contemporary feel.

Les Terrasses de Lyon* : like at Tetedoie, the panoramic view from the dining room is beautiful. The chef prepares delicious classic french dishes. The restaurant is located in one of Lyon luxury hotels.

La Rémanence* : creative french cuisine in the heart of Lyon, walking distance from your hotel. Carte changes every month.

Au 14 février* : utterly surprising japanese-french cuisine in the heart of Vieux Lyon. The cooking is flavourful, precise, sophisticated.

L’Auberge de l’Ile Barbe* : mysterious setting on an island in the middle of the Saone river for this Michelin restaurant located in an old auberge. Food is classic french.

La Mère Brazier** : talented chef Mathieu Viannay took over this lyonnais institution several years ago and reconquered its lost stars thanks to his impeccable cuisine honoring the most famous dishes of famous “mère lyonnaise” Eugénie Brazier.

Lassausaie** in Chasselay : located between Lyon and Beaujolais, this 2 stars restaurant is definitely worth the 30 mn drive from Lyon center. Excellent value for Michelin cooking.

L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges Paul Bocuse*** : what can we say? The ultimate Michelin experience in Lyon! All signature dishes are available as the truffle soup created for the former french president or the bresse poultry cooked in pig bladder. This is classic french cuisine at its best.
