We had a seven course surprise menu with accompanying wine package. Highly recommended. The young chefs cherish traditional French cooking and respect local original ingredients and/but manage to produce combinations that are fresh and innovative. This is not a cheapish restaurant but if one respects...More

Knowing very little of this restaurant before-hand, we expected a traditional, small lyon-styled "bouchon" brasserie. Imagine our surprise when receiving the chef's greetings, (and they were multiple!) which were like tiny explosions of flavor in your mouth! From there on it just kept getting better...More

It was our first visit to Restaurant Lyon and we were happily surprised. This so called 4-course dinner had probably close to 10 dishes from amuse-bouches to dessert before dessert. I especially enjoyed the lightness of the dishes, unexpected combinations of ingredients and relaxed atmosphere....More

I had a 5-course menu with wines. The amuse bouche were plated beautifullu and differently and were quite tasty. Every one of the 5 courses had several ingredients but worked together very well and the wine pairing was spot-on. I would recommend this restaurant to...More

Stepping into this restaurant is like moving in space to France, but still meeting Finnish flavors. Menu itself was excellent, but what made it even better was truly outstanding match of food and wines. And small welcome dishes from the kitchen teased us to wait...More

We had the four course surprise menu with wines. If you are going to the restaurant and choosing the surprise menu, stop reading if you want to be surprised. First we had two really beautiful amuse bouches. Tastes were quite mild. The first course was...More

We had a seven course menu with wine package. Astonishing food. Additional to the seven courses we had six greetings from the chefs. Young chefs had made fantastic dishes of local ingredients in a french manner. Outstanding. The wine package was full of pleasant surprises....More

A Very Strong Recommendation. Lyon leans on Scandinavian ideology of cooking with a French heritage. Definitely one of the few great restaurants in Helsinki. We had their 50th anniversary menu, which was one of the most beautiful things I ever eaten. The executions and preparations...More

We visited for father days' lunch. Because of dietary restrictions we selected the three course option. Taste was very good, no surprises there, but portion sizes would have been ok for a 5-course meal, not for 3. The result was that once home we had...More

I've had their 50y anniversary menu now twice and have to say, both times have been perfect, certainly belonging to the best dinners I have ever had. The menu basically was a 5-course surprise menu, but after all, we ended up having 11 different dishes,...More
