Cafe Lyon is located in Lindfield in Sydney. This is a wonderful restaurant which captures the great tastes of French cooking. A bustling atmosphere, excellent food and friendly service.

We returned here on Thursday evening having really enjoyed previous visits. This time the restaurant was full & the service painfully slow. Others in our group had the duck which they enjoyed but I had the barramundi which was very disappointing. The deserts looked very...More

Five of us went for dinner and we were blown away. The French food is by far the best in Sydney and the service was excellent. We could not fault a thing from the “French Martini’s” to the soufflés. I suspect we will be back...More

We've never had a bad meal here. Be mindful which area you book to sit in as there is a rather steep set of stairs leading to the upper dining section. No BYO on weekends which is a downer.

All our plates were delicious! Service was great. We sat up the back between the bar and toilet which was a bit too busy so I will ask to stay clear of that table again.

Had a celebratory lunch here last week. Absolutely mouth watering. Cannot fault anything. Food was absolutely stunning. Service was very good and the cafe itself has a great ambiance. A little pricey for lunch, but nonetheless, so delicious. Can highly recommend.

Last time I reviewed this restaurant was in 2016 although I have been back a couple of times a year since then. It's still a slice of France in Lindfield with a bistro feel engendered by loges and whiteboard menu mirrored walls and voices are...More
