Auberge de l'Île

Auberge de l'Île Review

If you're taking a pretty one-hour walk up the River Saône's right bank and down the other, this enchanted eatery on lush, leafy Île Barbe is the perfect place to refuel. Whether outside on the terrace or inside the graceful former 17th-century monastery refectory, it serves smart, contemporary cuisine based on fresh market products prepared with originality. Chef Jean-Christophe Ansanay-Alex is famous for his oral daily menu performance (listen for game in fall or winter), and the wine list is strong in local Condrieu and Côte-Rotie selections. Ordering a prix-fixe lunch menu (Tuesday to Friday; $$$$) will help you avoid a major economic hemorrhage.
