Food and drink in Lyon

To indulge your wildest French gourmet fantasies, go to Lyon. Its cobbled streets are thronged with characterful bouchons, while wine pours in from illustrious vineyards.


Evening on the Place du Change in Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon)



Lyon’s famed indoor food market has nearly five-dozen stalls selling gourmet delights. Pick up a round of runny St Marcellin from legendary cheesemonger Mère Richard, and a knobbly Jésus de Lyon from Charcuterie Sibilia. Or enjoy a sit-down lunch (; 102 Cours Lafayette; 7am–10.30pm Tue–Sat, to 4.30pm Sun).


One of the most dependable eateries in Vieux Lyon (Old Lyon), this classic bouchon (traditional bistro) is run by celebrated chef Joseph Viola, who was elected president of Lyon’s bouchon association in 2014. Come here for elaborate variations on traditional Lyonnais dishes (; 36 Rue Tramassac; noon–2pm & 7.30pm–9.30pm Tue–Sat; mains from £15, lunch menu £18, dinner menus from £28).
