Chef Julien Rioiron and his colleagues in the kitchen, Christophe Almodovar, and in the dining room, André Despacha, boast unbeatable credentials: they're from the gastronomy capital of France (Lyon), and they've got experience with traditional cooking as well as in kitchens that have earned Michelin stars both in France and in Barcelona.
You'll notice their ambition in the French lunch menu (three courses for under €20, or two for under €15) comprised of precise and refined, yet down-to-earth, dishes. For example, a cauliflower purée with a cod micuit and capers. You can choose from two starters and two mains. And at night their menu expands to include ten dishes, among them rillettes and French croquettes (with reblochon cheese!), purely home-made with their own spin on everything.
