Sharing and generosity, the motto of this delightful restaurant with an exceptional outdoor terrace
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 plaster walls. The luminous restaurant, that traverses the building, is bordered by large windows opening onto the Cour Saint-Louis of Grand Hôtel-Dieu. The garden terrace, for all the world like a tranquil cloister, is actually the former medicinal garden. On sunny days, this timeless space offers a quiet, convivial atmosphere.
In the kitchen, chef Mathieu Charrois opts for a menu with a predominantly local flavour, featuring revisited timeless French classics.
Indulge in the Chef’s three-course menu of the day, curated according to the morning arrivals with a selection of fresh and seasonal produce, from €32 per person.
The daily menu is only served Monday to Friday for lunch (excluding French bank holidays).
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.
