    The food was delicious and not pretentious. Puts a lot of city restaurants to shame. The service by the waitress was great. Prices for the quality were quite reasonable

    This restaurant is a gem, warm attentive service, good wine list and excellent food. The specials last Saturday were particularly good. It is a lovely bistro in the heart of the North Shore.

About the restaurant

Bistronomy movement in Lindfield...

The French city of Lyon is regarded as the capital of gastronomy, and with a name like “Cafe Lyon' you'd better hope the food is up to scratch. Luckily for this quaint little French bistro on a North Shore highway has chef Rainer Korobacz and his talent to live up to the name. But just like the ‘bistronomy' movement thats occurring in France, Cafe Lyon has followed suit, offering sophisticated food in a humble setting and with a set-price dinner menu that's smarter than your average bistro fare. This neighbourhood gem in Lindfield is a bustling, tightly packed little place where mature male waiters chug along with a touch of French swagger and savoir-faire. Rainer emerges regularly from the kitchen, delivering plates to the table. It's a comfy and comforting local. Just as you'd hope 9and, well, expect) baguette slices and plenty of butter land on the paper-on-cloth tables soon after you arrive and there's a great, concise list that champions Australia, while still giving the French a go too. The menu is straightforward: four options for each course, rooted in the French tradition and occasionally given a contemporary lift, but with the menu changing weekly, you'll never be bored with Lyon's tasty fare. Cafe Lyon is best of both worlds: Australian sunshine built upon layers of French culinary tradition.
