Restaurant Ecole L'Institut 20 place Bellecour - 69002 Lyon 2ème

The teams are formed partly by students of Institut Bocuse, and you can tell... which is a good thing!

The service is attentive, the dishes are perfectly presented and flavoursome, and the prices are very reasonable. Enjoy a fantastic dining experience on Place Bellecour, with food that's as good as at a Bocuse restaurant (well almost!).

Reservation recommended. The restaurant is big but tables are booked fast. You can also try the Institut Bocuse in Ecully (where it's even more important to book early).

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.

Rising with a smile on her face in the morning, always curious and enthusiastic to discover new places (and new dishes) in Lyon, Camille is what the specialists refer to as a « compulsive tester ». More partial to savoury than sweet (even though offering her a praluline – a delicious brioche filled with pralines – is a sure-fire way to get in her good books), Camille devotes herself body and soul to testing new food establishments in Lyon. Her radar for new addresses is legendary.
