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

Restaurant Lyon is a traditional gourmet restaurant in Töölö. They offer several surprise menus and a'la carte. Surprise menus come with numerous small greetings from the kitchen and even though portions are small gourmet dishes, the total meal is more than enough. We had the...More

The "surprise dinner' was absolutely delicious. A string of small dishes, adventurous and all looking small plates of like artwork. The foie gras with raspberry and beet root is very, very good.

Dinner at Restaurant Lyon was truly a treat. Each course was meticulously explained by the attentive staff. The wine pairing greatly enhanced the menu. My personal favorite was the foie gras with beets. An unlikely combination, at least for me, but the results were spectacular.
