Discover the restaurant
Located in the west of Lyon, in Écully, the restaurant Saisons welcomes you to Château du Vivier — the prestigious showcase of the Institut Paul Bocuse, an internationally renowned school of culinary arts and hotel management. In the heart of a seven-hectare park, this exceptional restaurant with its discreet charm has made a home in this former family residence featuring neo-Gothic architecture, a high keep and adorable chapel. Its terrace surrounded by greenery and the warm and soothing ambience of its various lounges provide the ideal setting to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the nearby city’s edge and to truly enjoy a unique culinary experience. With his young and talented team, acclaimed chef Florian Pansin, successor to the equally distinguished chef Davy Tissot, delivers on this promise. He creates a cuisine of emotions concocted from local seasonal products carefully selected from small suppliers with whom he has built strong bonds. To promote the value of raw, simple ingredients; to enhance them, to surprise gourmets and epicureans by associating them with flavours from afar as well as with the refined wines selected by master sommeliers, notably those chosen by Gaétan Bouvier: this is the admirable aim of the gourmet restaurant Saisons.
