La Mère Léa 11 quai des Célestins - 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.

Isabelle

Isabelle, our editor born and bred in Lyon! She was born in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon in fact, studied in Lyon and now lives here. Territorial? Absolutely not! She loves travelling, widening her horizons, meeting new people and enjoys a change of scenery (without snow, if possible). Isabelle is curious and a people person, two attributes that often go hand in hand! Her favourite colour is green and her motto "a day without laughter is a day wasted!"
