Aux Lyonnais French Bistro In Paris

Aux Lyonnais is a Paris version of a Lyonnais bouchon that was actually first opened in 1890 and with a passion for the traditional French bistro, the world renowned chef Alain Ducasse, decided to bring the old fashioned restaurant back to life but still keeping the Lyonnais specialities on the menu.

Still offering a style of cooking based on the very best regional produce from the Lyon area of France like pike, crayfish, frogs from the Dombes, chicken, beef, cheese from the Isère, cooked pork meats from Lyon and wine from the same region, dining here will make you realise why Lyon is called the gastronomic capital of France.

Aux Lyonnais French Bistro In Paris

This bistro style restaurant is a reasonably small and quaint place that has retained much of its original character both on the outside with its engraved plaques, statues and frescoes and on the inside with its tiled floor, mouldings on the high ceilings, a zinc bar and the original woodwork.

Situated in the 2nd Arrondissement of Paris in a very quiet location, there is also a small lounge area upstairs, which is accessed by the original mahogany staircase with brass rails where their patrons can enjoy a drink whilst waiting for their table.

The Aux Lyonnais bistro style restaurant in Paris has an A la Carte menu with dishes such as pike dumplings, foie gras, coq au vin, watercress soup over frogs legs done in parsley, steak served with sautéed shallots and a cheese and garlic mash, Grand Marnier souffle, poached pear with creme fraich.  But there is also a set menu for a lunchtime, which is cheaper, but you do not get many choices on this, only whatever the dishes of the day are, which do change by the seasons with what fresh produce is available. 

Restaurant Guide Key Points

Aux Lyonnais is open from a Tuesday through to a Friday for lunch and from a Tuesday through to a Saturday for dinner.

There is a set lunch menu and a set dinner menu which are approximately 30€, but there is also an A la Carte option which is an average cost of around 45€ upwards not including drinks.

Reservations are required and they are very particular about punctuality, but because of where it is situated, if you are no familiar with the area, it may be an idea to have a map.  If you are late turning up to Aux Lyonnais, you may end up not being able to dine as there are actually two sittings per evening and your reservations must be confirmed.

Also the dress code is smart casual, but leaning more towards dressy and this type of attire is expected, so no jeans etc here!

The nearest Metro station is the Grands-Boulevards.
