Evening Dinner at Abbaye de Collonges - Paul Bocuse 

Lyon is well deserving of its title of ‘French Capital of Gastronomy’. With its culinary specialities, its love of eating and its gastronomic traditions, the city pays tribute to the iconic chef Paul Bocuse and his successors. Upon becoming a restaurant, the farmstead was named L’Abbaye de Collonges in memory of the monks that lived on Île Barbe. L’Hôtel du Pont de Collonges, which in the meantime had become L’Auberge du Pont de Collonges, was finally allowed to feature the name of the BOCUSE family, who had been running the site for close to 50 years. The family decided to use L’Abbaye as a venue for hosting banquets and wedding receptions, with a series of rooms and areas almost fully dedicated to Paul Bocuse's passion for barrel organs. The most majestic example takes pride of place in L’Abbaye's main room. The music produced by this must-see Gaudin organ is like an orchestra of 110 musicians.
