There are good reasons (and produce!) why Lyon has been described as the "world's gastronomic capital". The city owes this reputation to its open-air cafes on the banks of the River Saône, the atmosphere of its famous "bouchons" (traditional restaurants) where, against the backdrop of red and white chequered tablecloths, a plethora of quenelles (dumplings), rosette and pistachio sausages and cervelle de canut cheese dip is available to be enjoyed. For decades, our Relais & Châteaux chefs have been exercising their talent in the art of fine dining and our Maîtres de Maison the art of hospitality in the city!
