Fine Dining

Last updated date : 01/03/2024

In Lyon's 1st arrondissement, on rue du Bât d'Argent, where the papillote was invented, the gourmet restaurant La Quintessence serves up a range of exciting dishes in a former Jesuit refectory dating from the 16th century.

Thick stone walls, high vaulted ceilings and traces of former alcoves, wooden floors and patches of colour - this is where chef Anthony Baud creates a cuisine of heart and good produce.

A place for sharing, where conviviality is an artist in residence, La Quintessence draws its inspiration from Lyon's culinary history and the mothers who started it all, reinterpreting bourgeois traditions with freshness and modernity.

A discreet door at 31 rue du Bât d'Argent, the surprise of a historic setting and the purity of a cuisine without artifice or concessions...
Love at first sight and a trump card.
