Focus today on La Cigale, an excellent gin and tapas bar in Old Lyon!
La Cigale is an establishment located a stone’s throw from the Temple du Change. In other words, a strategic location. However, while tourist traps are rampant, the place remains highly recommendable, both for the quality of its service and the drinks offered.
Thus, the day of our arrival, those in charge had not been delivered in charcuterie and other cheese platters. However, they were able to show great flexibility and responsiveness by offering quality products. In particular a melting and delicious burrata, as well as a tasty terrine.
La Cigale, bar specializing in Gin and tapas
Above all, La Cigale is a bar specializing in gin. Special mention to Hiva Oa, Havana Rum, raspberry syrup and grapefruit juice. Without forgetting the Copabana: Cachaca Magnifica, vanilla liqueur, tonka syrup and passion fruit, with its colored balls that melt under the tongue and let a mango flavor burst in the mouth.
The tapas are to match: burrata and terrines. But also a croque-monsieur with Serrano raw ham, Tomme de Savoie, grape must mustard and onion confit.
To top it off, the service remains fast and very attentive: a glass of water served discreetly and without ostentation. Our table neighbor even got a bowl of water for her dog. Appreciable for these hot weather!
A real heart-stopper. Inside, the water-green decor remains devilishly successful and creates a cozy atmosphere. With its generous portions and sense of hospitality, La Cigale is nothing short of an ant!
