Tapas de la Rue: "Genuine Tapas" Lyon Restaurant Tip by Yso

Lyon Restaurants: 62 reviews and 70 photos

Excellent Tapas in a fun environment.

Good choice of tapas written up on the black board, also main dishes available and a house selection of tapas for 10$ which lets you try a bit of everything.
Not the cheapest place to eat in town, but not too expensive either : you'll eat well and drink lots of wine or Sangria for about $20 per person.

Favorite Dish: I particularly liked the aubergine (eggplant) paté with cream of red peppers (capsicums). Also very good was the Soubressada, the carrots with Cumin were delicious and the spicy chick peas were pretty good too. They also have the standard selection of mussles, chorizo and tortilla.

Address: Rue des Pierres Plantés
