Ideally located in the heart of the Lyon market hall : Les Halles de Lyon, a center of gastronomy in Lyon, Maison Merle transports you for an unforgettable tasting moment. We offer a unique selection of oysters, seafood and shellfish, to share around a table at the restaurant, to eat at the counter or to take away.


In 1938, Alphonse Merle repurchase the Maison Forte
« Huîtres et Coquillages » to settle into the Halles des Cordeliers. With the help of his son Alain, Oyster seller France Champion in 1971, he makes the Maison Merle the reference in Lyon for tasting oysters. In 2005, Alain Merle divests his house to the Lameloise family, owner of Brasserie Georges. Today, the director Philippe Allard and its chef Jérémy continue this beautiful story with passion and talent.
