Top Restaurants in Lyon

L'Auberge du Pont de Collonges

The most famous culinary figure in Lyon is Paul Bocuse, whose restaurants (Nord, Sud, Ouest, Est, and Argenson) are all stellar. But for the best of the best, head to his flagship, L'Auberge du Pont de Collonges, about 2.5 miles north of Lyon on the banks of the River Saône. Housed in a family home, this Michelin-starred foodie destination's garish exterior (green, red, and golden yellow with oversized cockerels that glint in the sun) belies its richly elegant dining areas (private rooms available) and famed dishes, including a truffle soup created for the French president in 1975.
