Last saturday a friend of mine proposed me to have dinner at the Opera Bouffe in Lyon. You have to know that from now, you’ll find my recommendations and discoveries in a dedicated category on the blog.
I must say that it’s quite astoning that I never heard about this restaurant before. Opéra Bouffe proposes quite refine italian food with a good value-price ratio: the whole menu costs 29€ served with a good bio bread.

Service is kind without being friendly (like often in Lyon actually!)

As I often say I: your own good adresses and recommendations are more than welcome on the blog!

PS: sorry for the bad picture quality but I don’t want to attract attention when I test a restaurant: I prefer to use my mobile phone and to look like a compulsive instagram user…
