Best Restaurants

I don't frequent restos as I am still technically a student in France... but I have found a selection of fabulous restaurants in both Paris and Lyon during my 2 year+ "visit".

Lyon, France:
La Jardin des Dombes (4 rue des nuits )
Would you pay 25.50€ for a menu that includes all-you-can-eat frog legs and gratin dauphinois along with a dessert?  I would, especially because I live with a French guy who absolutely adores little Frog Legs.  If you've never tried, all you can eat could be intense, if you have and you love them- this is the place to go.

L'entrecôte (10 rue de la République )
This restaurant has a great mid-day menu during the week (Mon - Fri) for about 14€. The menu comes with a steak (bleu, a point, bien cuit) and a big ol' pile of french fries made in house from real potatoes. Why I love it? Simply because I love steak AND les frites à volonté, whiwh means all you can eat french fries. The secret sauce accompagnies the steak and the fries and it's absolutely a decadent restaurant secret.

Les Fines Geules (16 rue Lainerie)
Great little bouchon located in the 5ème that we came across by chance.  I had the gazpacho soup, the fish.. and it was really quite delicious.  Menus range from €19 to €27... but a definite favorite and one you should try.

Le Kys (18 Quai General Sarrali)
Has the best grenouilles that I have had in Lyon so far.  It's fairly expensive, you need a reservation for dinner here- but it's nice for a special occasion or a birthday!

Dans la 'Rue des Marronniers'

Chabert et Fils AND les Trois Cochons (11 rue des Marronniers)
Located on that legendary street, both of these restaurants are very typical Lyonnais with very inexpensive prices on their menus (€20 maximum).  It has some dishes that are not for the faint of heart (pig feet, cow intestine sausage) but it's a definite reflection of Lyon classics.

La Mère Jean (5 rue des Marronniers)
This little gold mine is incredibly small in size, almost one that someone would walk by with the fear of smothering- but it's just that.. Grandma's kitchen.  The food is incredibly filling and great quality, I had steak.. with a cheese sauce.  The entire menu is only €22.. and worth every penny.  You leave there waddling home.

Le Caveau (5 Place Antonin Poncet)
Hey, with a menu for only €15; you can't go wrong.  It's not the best bouchon, but for the price of the food it's incredibly well done- we ate there and were incredibly full at the end.  Really delicious and well done... and hey- great for a HANGOVER.  :)
