generosity and invention: that’s the secret of good cooking!
Simple dishes made with good products from our regions and presented with generosity and invention: this is the secret of good cooking according to Bernard Chemarin and his brigade!
You will enjoy here a gastronomic cuisine without fuss or pretense, a “terroir” cuisine with roots firmly planted in the lands of Lyon, Beaujolais and Ain. We know what eating means in the Val-de-Saône.
Have a good appetite and a great thirst!
Boning, cutting, dressing, skinning, skinning, trimming, apeing… here, everything is prepared in-house. No compromise on product quality. Poularde de Bresse, kidneys, oeufs en meurette, fresh frogs, snails, mackerel and charolais are all prepared and cooked in-house, the old-fashioned way if the job requires it, as for the chicken with crayfish – another “signature” dish – cooked in the kitchen.
“I use quality products, so I know it’s going to be good,
modestly minimizes the chief. Tradition – as soon as you put it on your plate – is always a good thing.
The selection of desserts smells of sweet France: you will fall for the apricot coulis cracker, you will melt for the chocolate mi-cuit, you will remember your childhood snacks with the Grandma-style waffle, you will be amazed at the fiery Norwegian omelette, and you will ask for the crème brûlée again. The apple delight is an eternal and vibrant tribute to the restaurateur Pierre Orsi.
And as there is no shortage of vines and the cellar is well stocked, let’s make Paul Bocuse’s wishes our own: Bon appétit et large soif!
the big terrace
a leader, a saga
Cook for three generations
“I didn’t become a cook, I am a cook!”
This is Bernard Chemarin’s leitmotiv when he shares his passion for the profession.
Third in the Aunt Yvonne lineage, the chef succeeded his father Michel who had himself taken over from the illustrious eponymous grandmother. Here we are restaurateurs from mother to son and grandson. The kitchen in the skin!
Bernard Chemarin began his career as an apprentice with two great masters of Lyon’s restaurant industry: Pierre Orsi, first of all, the friend, confidant and tutelary figure to whom he pays homage in his menu with a signature dessert: the Délice aux pommes; then came Paul Bocuse, “Monsieur Paul”, like a culinary knighthood.
The father, Michel Chemarin, will transmit the passion, but the culinary intuition is present in Bernard’s genes since his birth and affirmed in contact with his grandmother.
Bernard Chemarin has been a member of the Toques Blanches Lyonnaises for many years. The restaurant has been awarded the Gault&Millau and Maître Restaurateur labels.
more than a restaurant, an institution
Founded in 1959 by the grandmother Yvonne Chemarin, the “Aunt Yvonne”, the restaurant has become a must – on weekends as well as during the week – for all lovers of good food and good living in a comfortable and charming atmosphere without ostentation.
