La Mère Léa 11 place Antonin Gourju - 69002 Lyon 2ème

Try the quenelle dumplings, golden brown tablier de sapeur, melt-in-the-mouth hot saucisson, or the famous gratin de macaronis. For something a bit different, you can taste one of the seasonal specialities, such as fresh frogs in a parsley and garlic garnish (absolutely delicious!), or discover revisited local recipes, such as the lobster tête de veau (a bold creation by Christian Têtedoie!). 

Who other than Mère Léa could transform a simple lettuce salad into a gastronomic masterpiece? We’re still looking!

La Voûte has been awarded the ‘Bouchons Lyonnais’ certification.

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.
