L’Institution has been an iconic establishment in Lyon since its construction in 1864.
Built at the time of the major work carried out in the city by Prefect Vaïsse, in its 150 years of existence the restaurant has seen all of Lyon pass through its doors; today it plays host to customers who appreciate the finer things in life.
L’Institution was entirely redecorated by Jacques Garcia in 2013 and today it reflects current trends, offering a chic yet cosy style inspired by the flamboyant interiors of the 19th Century and juxtaposed with contemporary art.
