Besides Lyon’s impressive architectural and cultural heritage, the city has in recent years developed a reputation as the capital of gastronomy in France and in the world. Hire a luxury car at Lyon Airport and get started on a food pilgrimage that will impact your every sense.
Get your taste buds partying by making your first stop at the world famous Bocuse’s L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges. With impeccable old-school service and a cuisine that is simply out of this world, it is no wonder this restaurant has been awarded three Michelin stars and its chef has been named “Chef of the Century”. Truffles soup, red mullet with potatoes and lobster mousse are just some of the dishes that have made Paul Bocuse known as the god of French cuisine and the father of New French cooking. Make your arrival as classic as this restaurant’s cuisine by driving a Rolls-Royce Drophead Coupe, a 2 door, 4 seat convertible that offers power, performance, luxury and class.
You’ll need more days than you had budgeted for and a bigger appetite to fit all the wonderful restaurants offering unforgettable food experiences in Lyon. Housed in an old mansion, restaurant Pierre Orsi reinterprets the great classic French cuisine with a refined twist. Duck foie gras ravioli with truffles, lobster and baby pigeon will make your mouth water. Located in a former convent is sinfully delicious Les Terrasses. Léon de Lyon serves arguably the best terrine "rustique" of pork, onion soup, foie gras and salads with truffles vinaigrette. Christian Têtedoie turns out innovative cuisine with powerful flavor. For a not so fancy but very traditional Lyonnaise fare, eat at a bouchon. And because there always has to be room for dessert, stop for sweets at Bernachon. Since the early 1950s, Bernachon has been making chocolate directly from the bean on the premises, turning out what’s considered some of the world’s best chocolates.
