L'Ourson Qui Boit Lyon Reviews
Cheap and great fusion cuisine in Lyon centre. May 23, 2009
Agira Nishigaki,a young Japanese chef runs with his Japonese wife this friendly,cheap(evening menu 25 euro) ,well-situated restaurant,close to the Opéra, where the French cuisine is flavoured with Asian touch.
He called his restaurant l'Ourson qui boit(the bear cub drinking)because he worked several years in Kyoto in a restaurant of the same name before coming to Lyon where he was Jérôme Schoonberg's second,the famous chef of the restaurant L'Etage place des Terreaux(where the guillotine was situated during the French revolution!).
We had several lunches and dinners there and we were never disappointed.We came back there today for the FIRST TB MEETING UP IN LYON with Adeline,ADITANY on TB and ice on the cake it was Danielle's Birthday:)
It offers A VERY GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY!(book before coming!)Lunch 3 courses menu costs 18 euro.for 14,you get a main course with starter or dessert.
The winelist is short but well selected by the Antic wine.We drank a tasty Delas Viognier from South of France.

L’ourson qui boit Aug 24, 2009
What would you do without a friend like Bernard in Lyon? One thing for sure you would not find great places like the L’ourson qui boit which have an excellent ration between quality and price.
I was in Lyon with my friend Jacob and I had made a lunch appointment with Bernard, who would come and pick us up at our hotel.
Bernard took us to a great little restaurant called; L’ourson qui boit run by Japanese chef Agira Nishigaki, and his wife. The restaurant was situated close to the Opéra, but I was glad that Bernard could show the way.
We had a great lunch and were lucky enough to get a table outside on this beautiful day; Bernard and Jacob started with a great gazpacho with cream while I had an escargot role which was lovely. As main course I had a fish dish and they went for duck. All the dishes were very delicious and the wine was nice too; it was a very good lunch and a very good ration between quality and price.
Bernard knows for sure his new metier.
