Brasserie Georges

Brasserie Georges is located opposite the Perrache station. It is a classic brasserie, founded in 1836, with a long history of serving up fabulous French cuisine. It is definitely not to be missed - for its fabulous Art Deco style, if nothing else.

Dining

Plunge into the small, picturesque, yet lively world of Lyon’s traditional restaurants – the bouchons. Their menus display all the specialities from the local markets and traditional Lyon dishes. Lyon is also the capital of gastronomy and grande cuisine. The uncontested master of French cuisine, Paul Bocuse, has his restaurant by the Saone, and new chefs brimming over with creative talent abound. In Stendhal’s "Memoirs of a Tourist," he wrote: “I know one thing that you do very well in Lyon, you can eat admirably there.”
