    Food is mediocre and some plates are simply not good. A long wait for service. The location is central and the inside decoration is traditionally nice but all in all very expensive and poor value for money.

    We had booked in advance and paid a deposit- for New Year's Eve . The pictures shown on their website showed grand interior. We were however put in a freezing corner in the entrance, which had a very different standard interior wise, than the restaurant. We should have been given the option: If the actual restaurant was fully booked, they should have told us so when we booked! Then we could have chosen a different place:; we had other possibilities at the time we booked the table. They could have apologised; offered the menu to a lower price; offered blankets or a warm drink, or ... The head waiter was very arrogant. The service slow, non attentive and the very opposite to grand. The owners and the managers should be ashamed of themselves. Al other cafes and restaurants we frequented in Lyon - both cheep and upper class - were very good experiences: attentive, friendly, polite and extremely good food.

    Love the Christmas ambiance... truly a special way to celebrate Christmas holidays... service was relaxed... we were in no rush. French toast croissant with salted caramel ice cream desert was over the top ! Wonderful way to spend our Sunday afternoon in Lyon..

    Wonderfully over the top decor, attentive service, and menu that provided many choices for a non meat eater. A different model than other Lyon restaurants in that they're open a lot, not just specific dinner hours. Great Manhattan cocktail.

    Those of us who chose the Sea Bream filet were extremely disappointed. It was a small (is there an EU minimum size for this fish?) unpalatable steamed filet accompanied by excellent black rice. There was no enthusiasm for the other fish. The only member of the party who enjoyed the meal had chosen steak with foie gras which was perfectly cooked. The dessert was excellent and unusual. It was a pity that the main spoilt the meal for most of us.

    We spent a lovely dinner. The food was very good and the atmosphere was special. The staff is very kind, the service was perfect and the location is amazing. We tried the Menu Lyonnaise ( 35 € per person) and at the end we were very glad about our choice! The relation quality-price-location is better than we thought. Very suggested.

    Excellent all around. Filet of beef cooked perfectly. The chef willing to modify the menu for my kids. Know how to make a cocktail which is rare in Lyon. Wonderful glacé dessert menu in addition to a la carte desserts. Crowded evening but not rushed I the least. Consistently good experience dining here. Mix of locals and tourists depending on season and day of week.

About the restaurant

2014 : 150ème anniversaire !

LYON - C’est en 1864 que le Grand Café des Négociants ouvre ses portes pour la première fois, dans le 2eme arrondissement de Lyon. Situé entre les quais Saint-Antoine et Jean Moulin, la tradition du restaurant perdure et s’inscrit dans l’histoire de la ville.

SAVEURS ET TRADITION - Au programme : grande cuisine française dans une ambiance de brasserie décontractée. Aux fourneaux, on vous concocte une montgolfière d’escargots au beurre d’ail, un cabillaud rôti ou encore un superposé de légumes frais et de gambas déshabillées. Cela laisse rêveur…

PETITES PRÉCISIONS - Le service est continu et l’établissement ouvre dès le lever du soleil jusqu’à l’aube. Petit-déjeuner, salon de thé, déjeuner, pour simplement prendre un verre, partager un dîner en amoureux ou pour bien finir la soirée, le lieu est un incontournable de Lyon. Et ce, depuis 1864 !
