You can enjoy one of the best views in Lyon from the terrace of ‘La Maison Villemanzy’. The panoramic vista encompasses the Cité Internationale and the Presqu’île, with the peaks of the Alps creating a backdrop. If you first come to this restaurant for the view, you will definitely return once you have sampled Guillaume Mouchel’s cuisine. Both traditional and hearty, it strikes that perfect balance between everyday Lyon dishes and bistro-style fare. Everything is executed with care and the menu is regularly updated. The wine cellar, located in the depths of the hillsides in the Croix-Rousse, is as impressive as the antique furniture and waxed wooden floors which decorate the interior. There is no better way to enjoy the warm ravioli Dauphiné salad, the courgette stuffed with red mullet parmentier or the veal steak with porcini mushroom crémeux. And then there are the famous desserts – very skilled renditions of clafoutis, blancmange and crème brûlée.
