World Seafood, Local Catch
Lyon is home to not one, but two different rivers–the Rhône and the Saône. This makes the city a perfect spot to try fresh fish. Located in the Presqu’île District, Jols Saint-Antoine may be the perfect seafood spot within the perfect seafood city. The restaurant is utterly dedicated to pescetarian life, from its menu to its decor.
Jols Saint-Antoine’s menu offers a culinary trip across the seven seas. Visitors can try Salmon Tartare with spices, guacamole, and tomato bread. Or perhaps they’d prefer Sesame Tuna with sweet & sour sauce, served with vegetables and rice cooked in a Japanese wok. The restaurant also provides regularly changing seasonal menus.
When the weather is sunny, guests can dine on a sunny terrace. But indoors, the restaurant appears to glow blue like the inside of an aquarium, an atmosphere complimented by sea-colored chairs and other fish-related art. The restaurant’s wine list is large, and it specializes in white wines–perfect for pairing with fish.
