Cuisine excellente - Edit

J'ai enfin testé le Soline il y a un mois environ, et j'ai été séduite par ce que j'y ai mangé. Le plat était très copieux et parfumé, le personnel accueillant et très gentil.
Le choix des plats mettait l'eau à la bouche. J'ai trouvé les tarifs raisonnables, ce n'est pas bon marché mais pour la qualité des produits cela m'a semblé cohérent.
Je ne manquerai pas d'y retourner pour goûter d'autres plats de saison !

Pros: Choix appétissant, Personnel très aimable, Lieu chaleureux

Accueillant, chaleureux, beau et joyeux - Edit

Et cela s'applique a la fois a la nourriture, a l'ambiance générale et aux personnes qui y travaillent. Un grand soin et une grande bienveillance règnent ici, les prix sont raisonnables, la nourriture peut être sans gluten a la demande.

Pros: Les desserts !, Leur menu du midi

My favorite restaurant in Lyon - Edit

Soline is the perfect restaurant for me. The food is always excellent, the staff always welcoming and the menu changes often and offer recipes inspired by various countries in the world.
The location is central, not so far from Part Dieu area (main train station and business district).
I've discovered this place 4 years ago and I've been coming regularly since, never disappointed.
So if you're in Lyon and are looking for a good vegetarian restaurant, look no further.

The only thing is that the restaurant is only open during week days and for lunch.

Pros: Excellent food, Changing menu, Excellent staff

Cons: Open just week days for lunch, Price slightly too high

great food, a bit pricey, though - Edit

Soline is more of a canteen style restaurant with a small variety of meals, all of which sound very delicious. Main dish plus dessert was 13,50€ (we only had the main dish for 10,50€) which is a bit pricey. The food is very tasty, though!

Pros: delicious food

Cons: too expensive

Practical place to eat vegan food - Edit

Soline is well located and allows to eat quality vegan food for lunch. The ambiance is nice but it looks like more a canteen than a restaurant. The food is good but not always unforgetable. Prices are fair and staff is friendly.

Pros: vegan choices, affordable, well located

Cons: canteen like, not open in the evening

Vegan lunch - Edit

Place is warm and cosy, service very polite and friendly. Staff speaks english, that's not common in France.The definitely healthy, well presented but could be seasoned more. I like strong flavours so french style of cooking dissapoints me a bit. But over all I give 810. Good place for lunch.

Pros: friendly staff, good portions, nice small front garden

Cons: not many vegan desserts

nice little veggie place, family friendly - Edit

I think the food was good. I had an egg, cooked with truffle essence, it was very odd but nice... With soldiers and truffle butter or something... Accompanied with a massive salad, full of grated carrots, beetroots and healthy things! For dessert, a chocolate tart with sarrasin flour, (buckwheat) which was delicious!
I think they have a different "plat du jour" everyday. So ask the waiter what they have... They divide their option as their origins, for instance if they have a have a thai option and spanish optin 9they often have 2 options), they'll call it "La thailandaise, ou l'espagnole and then a desciption of what it is, the dish of the day, if you will....
I though the price was reasonable. It's ok as a cafe if you're in the area or on your lunch break.(20min from Bellecour, going through Guillotiere bridge)
Very healthy for Lyon! A good option indeed! Their produce is all organic which is great to know, and it's eco friendly and local, as much as they can use local products... They're very family orientated as well, the ambiance is cosy and relaxed, no fuss... The staff is friendly and speak good English. They also have fresh juices. the patisseries are succulent. I defo recommend it! Have fun in Lyon, people! It's my hometown, so knowing that people open businesses like this fills my heart with joy! Lyon is the gastronomy capital city of France after all!

Pros: open all day (need te reserve for dinner, not too pricey, quite central'ish!

Cons: not open on weekends, bit noisy, kinda canteen, perfect4lunch!, raw food in the menu next? Times change!

A good canteen - Edit

I Had lunch there and though it's was OK the vegan option is cooked in the same dish than vegetarian food with cheese... A bit odd...

It's more a canteen than a restaurant, but it's OK if you're in a hurry and around the corner.

I love this place - Edit

I've been here many times, I think the owners are great and the food is always good. The chef Matthieu focuses on aryuvedic cooking, and they always have some vegan options. It's more of a lunchtime place, but they occasionally have thursday night theme evenings - last time was a performance of indian dance with indian food, of course. Unfortunately the food was a bit toned down since the french don't like spicy food. So it wasn't super authentic or flavorful in that sense and I was a bit disappointed. But I've yet to have good indian food in france, so I suppose that's to be expected.

However their basic daily formula is great. You have two options: one dish of the week, of dish of the day, served cafeteria style. Most everything is fair trade and/or organic, they're also really focused on local agriculture. They have a pretty good selections of drinks (alcoholic and non) and even a little shop where you can buy fair trade stuff like tea and chocolate. The decor is great - very colorful and bright, and they even have some massage chairs in a corner. I wish they were open more often at night, since that's when I would go, but otherwise I'm a big fan.

Pros: good food, friendly staff, healthy cuisine

Cons: not open nights
