Mundana has set a high standard and hand picked these restaurants for their great food quality, good reputation, great customer service, clean environment, courteous staff and original menus.
Les Trois Dômes
On the top floor, you can enjoy a breathtaking view from the restaurant “Les Trois Dômes”. The starred Chef Christian Lherm offers a seasonal cuisine. His dishes, such as the “Tourte de Homard” and the “Pike Quenelle with crayfish” are a real invitation to gourmands.
Le Silk Brasserie
The Silk Brasserie is ideal for a nice lunch in a friendly and modern atmosphere. The Chef Guichonnet offers a fashionable bistronomic cuisine which combines simplicity and modernity. Fresh homemade desserts are made every day by the Trois Dômes’ pastry chef.
Brasserie Le Sud
This offering from Michelin-starred chef Paul Bocuse is located near to Place Bellecour. The brasserie is heavily influenced by the south and its flavours; the terrace is a summer favourite.
Daniel et Denise
Dining at a bouchon is a Lyonnais essential. This is one of the best, serving hearty local fare heavily centred on meat.
Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière
This 19th century basilica sits atop Fourvière hill and is worth the climb from the old town for the views from the top. Nearby you'll find the remains of a Roman theatre complex.
Parc de la Tête d'Or
This is Lyon's finest park. Home to the zoo and the city's botanical gardens, it's a great place to take the kids or enjoy a picnic.
