Been here a number of times and never disappointed. Attended a wine matching dinner in April 2017. Service excellent. Food selected fresh, full of flavour and scrumptious.

Absolute the best dining experience We've had in a long long time. Stunningly, the best food and wine ever. Entre's (starters) and our Main course spatchcock Chicken was to die for. Other members of the family had the duck and beef which was reported to be magnificent. Simply the best we've had as I say in many years. A little... More

It has been a while since we have dined at this fantastic restaurant, having been just too busy to get out during the week. Tonight highlighted the fact that it has been too long. We were lucky enough to get a table for an early sitting as we decided to eat out at the last minute. How lucky we were,... More

Our son, who loves his steak rare, proclaimed, "this is the best steak I have ever eaten", and he has eaten a lot of steaks. Great service, we sat upstairs which has a... More

My husband and I went to Cafe Lyon for his birthday in March and we had never been here before. We walked in and the restaurant was very busy and looked a little small but they had an upstairs section also and were taken upstairs. The decor and ambience is great and the food was simply amazing right down to... More

Lunch today - fixed menu consisted of pork belly, followed by beef and finally a cheese plate. The pork belly was good, maybe a little overcooked. The beef was very good and the servings more than adequate. Pretty good overall

My wife and I visited this restaurant on Valentines Day. They had a set menu with several options and we had no trouble finding delicious choices. The service was really good and the food was beautifully presented. Our meals came out in a timely fashion even though the restaurant was busy. We will be back.
