30 of the Best Lyon Restaurants, Bouchons, Markets and Bars

Are you wondering where to eat in Lyon? We spent a month eating in the French city so that we could assemble this Lyon food guide for hungry visitors and tourists.

Lyon is an ideal destination for food travelers. Not only does the city offer some of the best food in France if not the world, but it’s also a charming and relatively easy to manage.

Sure, food travelers won’t want to miss Paris pastries and restaurants when visiting France. But don’t rule out Lyon as an equally worthy destination in the hexagonal European country.

Monsieur P


Monsieur P’s great food is served in a space that’s simple and somewhat anticlimactic. But the restaurant’s service is top notch and its food is excellent.

Takao Takano

At this tiny oasis nestled in a residential neighborhood, Japanese-born chef Takano transports local, seasonal ingredients to a higher level by cooking dishes that excite with every bite.


Les Apothicaires

We were also attracted to the restaurant’s excellent reputation, global menu and affordable lunch menu.



Chef Gaétan Gentil delivers on this promise with food that combines the freshest seasonal ingredients with modern cooking techniques. The result is magical.



In many ways, dining at Sapnà is like joining a dinner party. The bar is long and flowing with a stream of wine, beer and spirits.
