While owner/chef Rainer Korobacz honed his craft in some of the finest restaurants in Europe, Canada and Australasia, the inspiration for Café Lyon is decidedly French. Designed along the lines of the neo-bistros of Paris and wonderful bouchons of Lyon, you’ll enjoy a peaceful and welcoming slice of France.
The menu is as French as the well-informed wait staff, and the team in the kitchen pride themselves on presenting quality produce to delight the palate. The melt-in-the-mouth citrus-cured trout with celeriac remoulade and delicate prawn beignets is a perfect way to awaken your tastebuds. Follow with the confit of duck – an outstanding main course. The moist meat falls off the bone, and is balanced perfectly with an endive marmalade and watercress salad. For seafood lovers, the crispy skinned salmon served with an olive tapenade, baby artichoke and pickled fennel salad is a crowd favourite.
