The Grand Réfectoire and L’Officine join the list of establishments to call Hôtel Dieu home, bringing an air of elegance to the new space.


In keeping with the classic and historic style of Lyon’s newly refurbished Grand Hôtel Dieu, a high-end restaurant and connected bar will open in the commercial space at the end of 2018.

Run by Mathieu Cochard and Thibault Salvat of the Hard Rock Café’s Lyon branch and Marc Bonneton of the Antiquaire cocktail bar, the Grand Réfectoire and L’Officine will offer a néo-lyonnaise selection of local, regional, and international dishes and drinks.

The Grand Réfectoire is led by Michelin-starred chef Marcel Ravin, with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea menus featuring seasonal specialties, brasserie classics, and international influences.

The kitchen is open onto the dining area, to provide an inside view of the fresh products from start to finish. There is even a table located inside the kitchen, called the Table de Marcel, that can be reserved for a true up-close show.

L’Officine is separate from the restaurant but connected, a lounge-style space full of dark greens, deep wood, and copper for an atmosphere spanning the eras of Hemingway, James Bond, and Carrie Bradshaw.

Led by barman Bonneton, L’Officine offers the finest selection of alcohols alongside 12 signature cocktail recipes, with seasonal menus that change along with the restaurant ones.

The Grand Réfectoire will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. daily. L’Officine will be open from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., Tuesday to Saturday. Both are located under the Grand Dome of Hôtel Dieu, at 3 Cour Saint Henri (Lyon 2).
