Julien opened his restaurant a few years ago and it is always busy from lunch to happy hour.

The quirky interior décor is made up of odds and ends, the welcome is informal, the tables are packed in tight and the watchword is 'proximity'!

The menu, including traditional and more original dishes, varies from day to day (our favourites are the house special andouillette in pastry or their superb paella).

Dishes are always generously served.

Our tip: leave some room for the dessert, or share it with your neighbour!

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.

The first thing you notice about Camille when you see her in the morning is her ready smile. Then you rapidly realise that although she looks very gentle, she is also amazingly efficient and insatiably curious. The very essence of a compulsive tester: nothing escapes her watchful eye. Not a single venue, festival or wardrobe sale, especially those that take place in her own neck of the woods on the slopes! You may even come across her and her little 4-year old, who accompanies her on most of her exploratory journeys!
