Where to Eat in… Lyon!

Lyon is up next.. the food capital of France!

I didn’t take many photos of the food in Berlin which is so not like me, so in this video you can see some of the great food we tried…

Our first stop in Lyon was to grab some lunch on our wanders as we’d been up for hours by then and wanted something super fast. We found a Maison Manzoni which we think is a bakery style chain. We had baguettes with a drink and the lovely employee used her best English to say if we ordered a cake too it was a meal deal and made it cheaper so I went straight in for a giant Macaron. When in Frace aye?!

Our second little stop was a real cool bar that was filled with Pinball machines and serves real strong beer. We didn’t eat here, we just made a little beverage pitstop and I’m so annoyed I can’t find the name!

We had dinner on our first night is an awesome place called Le Book Lard. The staff here were amazing, as they didn’t have an English menu they sent the chef up to our table to tell us what all of the food he was cooking that day was. He was so passionate about his food, we knew we had made the right choice! We had a duck style stew and I had a chicken dish, both of which were amazing. We also learnt there that Lyon is very proud of it’s stodgy, big meat dishes, so we knew we’d be fine there!

In true Brits on holiday style, we had pizza for lunch from Dolce Follia as we wanted something quick, easy to eat and not too filling as we were lunching quite late. The pizza here was amazing. If you’re looking for a quick lunch then this is great.

We obviously had to stop for crepes on our wanders too, and we chose the best looking street vendor with the longest queue for this. There are so many crepe places to try around the Vieux Lyon area.

Our last meal was eaten in one of the oldest restaurants in Lyon, which funnily enough was an Indian restaurant! It was called Le Royal Indien and whenever we walked past it looked so inviting so we bit the bullet nd went for it. The food was phenomenal and the service really great too.

Super sorry for the lack of photos as I wasn’t planning on posting about the food in Lyon at the time, which was silly of me considering it’s so well known for the food!!

Happiest with a craft beer in hand, eating til my heart is content or exploring somewhere new.
