• Les bouchons lyonnais Garants de la tradition culinaire Lyonnaise
  • Daniel et Denise Saint Jean

    Owner : Joseph Viola

    Daniel et Denise Saint Jean is a bouchon with a tale to tell. The establishment is in Vieux Lyon, in an old building where much has happened, such as a woman hiding her children there during the second world war. Nowadays the wood panelling and pictures on the walls give the restaurant a warm, friendly atmosphere. Joseph Viola grew up in Saulxures-sur-Moselette. Leaving his native Vosges, he bought this bouchon from Félix Guérin in 2012 after working for many a great name, including 10 years under the guidance of Jean-Paul Lacombe at Léon de Lyon. You will love the typical Lyon-style home cooking served by the extremely courteous staff. This is traditional bouchon cuisine at its very best - Joseph Viola is not a man to accept anything less. Delicious dishes like calf’s liver, quenelles and floating islands, all made with consummate skill, and accompanied by the gentle yet warm welcome extended by his wife, Françoise. The restaurant also boasts a dining-room suitable for both private and corporate events, decorated with the latest shades and stylish furniture. Find this restaurant also on lyonresto.com
