Café de la Mairie Lyon Reviews
Café de la Mairie Dec 04, 2009
We had been out walking in the streets for some time following the scheduled route for the light festival that would start the following day. The streets had already been decorated and there was a good ambiance in the city; people were in good mood awaiting the following day’s action.
We came down from the hill above and entered Place Sathonay, which seemed as a nice place to be on a summer day. We saw the nice place and went for it. It turned out to be Cafe de la Mairie. From outside it looked very cozy, but when we in we were hit by an experience that for us had been typical French; there is not much coziness inside.
The bar was quite cold, and left no space for ambiance. The light was not nice; it was way too cold and sharp. We ordered two glasses of red wine and got something that the cat had dragged in! It tasted really bad; but when all this has been said, I must say that the people were really nice and friendly; asking us where we were from and so forth.
