    Perfect food and excellent service. There was not the slightest «but they should have …» or even «but they could have …». We were extremely happy with everything from the ambiance to the service to the kitchen. It was just perfect (and moderately priced).

    RATING DOES NOT REFLECT SATISFACTION...I ordered the pork in mustard sauce. It was extremely well presented. The meat was good but not of the very best quality and the sauce a little bit too spicy. The atmosphere was very delightful, felt very French with pictures etc. I went to this restaurant because it was recommended by my hotel and , of the recommendations, this one offered a promotion,from La Fourchette. I was extremely disappointed when I was charged 4,50 eors for plain water; this was the only restaurant on my entire trip that charged for water and I can only assume they did it to make up for the discount from La Fourchette. I found that very unacceptable and would not recommend it for that reason.

    La Chimère n'en est pas une !!!! Cadre accueillant, mets raffinés sont les véritables atouts de cette excellente adresse. Reste à avoir un service en salle jovial pour que la tableau soit parfait.

    Not too dissimilar in appearance from other nearby bistros in downtown Lyon (this one is two steps away from the Cathedral) so we chose it through a bit of guesswork. We were not disappointed. Slow-cooked tender lamb and beef as main dishes and sophisticated but fulfilling desserts accompanied by a reduced but sensible quality wine selection. We benefitted from a discount which made the evening a very attractive quality/price proposition.
