A ‘high point’ in fine dining in Lyon in every sense of the phrase. Christian Têtedoie is very familiar with Michelin stars and serves his sophisticated and innovative cuisine in a location perched high on the famous Fourvière hill,The holder of one Michelin star, this ‘Meilleur Ouvrier de France’ 1996 award winner creates a superb cuisine without ever losing his cheerful nature. Behind vast picture windows and in the contemporary surroundings of a dining area flooded with light, he likes to go round the tables after having moved you to tears of delight over his egg ‘parfait’, broccoli, garlic and mushrooms, or his pigeon with chanterelles and verbena. This gourmet composition builds up to a grand climax of Sakanti chocolate with lemon and thyme. His signature dish is summed up in three letters: HTV. An unusual combination of braised calf ’s head and lobster – absolutely divine. Rubbing shoulders with the Villa Maïa luxury hotel, this restaurant also offers a wine barcalled ‘LePhosphore’.As for the ‘Terrasse de l’Antiquaille’, it has been crowded since late spring with customers enjoying both the meals cooked on a plancha and the breathtaking view.
