Epona – 20 quai Jules Courmont, 69002 Lyon, FRANCE

Epona restaurant, located on the ground floor of the InterContinental® Lyon – Hotel Dieu, gets its name from an extremely popular goddess of Gallo-Roman religion, patron saint of horseriding and travel.

It stretches all along the imposing facade of Grand Hôtel-Dieu, embracing its historical architectural composition : stone floor, wood ceiling and plain paster walls. The luminous restaurant, that traverses the building, is bordered by large windows opening onto the Cour Saint-Louis of Grand Hôtel-Dieu. On sunny days, the restaurant occupies its splendid and quiet terrace-garden resembling a serene cloister, laid out in the historic courtyard which is none other than the former medicinal garden of the Grand Hôtel-Dieu.

It is in the heart of this timeless space, chef Mathieu Charrois opts for a menu with predominantly local flavour, featuring revisited timeless Lyonnais classics.

Chef Mathieu Charrois

Executive Chef

Beirut, French Polynesia, London, New Caledonia, and finally, Lyon.
Long and rich was the road that led me here, twixt the Rhone and the Saone,
to the heart of this city where the word gastronomy quickens the pulse.
In the shade of this magnificent Dome, I recommend the savours and flavours of past and present
that will surely beguile you.
