Fodor's Review

The owners have wisely preserved the bistro's traditional spirit while brightening the decor and adding chic touches such as valet parking and a heated terrace. The menu still consists mainly of Lyonnais classics, though now you'll find some of these grouped into color-theme menus such as "red" (beet salad, coq au vin, and Quincy wine) or "yellow" (Swiss chard gratin, pike-perch in beurre blanc sauce with steamed potatoes, and Mâcon wine). Old regulars keep coming back, including the former owners, who live upstairs.

Chez René Review

Really great restaurant and value. Best Cocovan and beef bourguignon in Paris. If it is summer ask for a table outside. The host Xavier speaks great english if you need help with the menu and is a very nice man.
