Saturday Night Near Gare de Lyon?

Looking for a reasonably priced (but no necessarily inexpensive) restaurant within a healthy walk of Gare de Lyon for a Saturday night dinner.

My first two choices Le Quincy and A La Biche dy Bois are closed Saturday night and I've heard another option Le Duc de Richelieu has declined since a change in ownership. We don't want Chinese so no go on Shan Gout and I think Le Train Bleu is probably too pricey and over-the-top for a couple members of the party.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  1. Gare de Lyon is serviced by major RATP bus lines. The #24 will take you along the left bank of the Seine; the #63 will take you into St. Germain several streets south of the river. You will have many choices of restaurants discussed on this board from either of these lines, and return is easy, eastbound on St. Germain.

      Thanks for the transit information. Ultimately we may have to use transit. Several of our guests will have been on a train all day so I was sort of hoping we could avoid any further transportation. But taking a a short ride to find an good meal is no doubt a better idea than walking to an average one.
