Café Sillon


The menu is a delight for the senses, making the discovery of this bistro from elsewhere is a must.

At Café Sillon there is no Lyonnais cuisine, only creative cuisine. Mathieu-Eostain Tayardau belongs to the new generation of travelling chefs who explore the world to enrich their culinary culture. He has cooked in Japan, Italy, and Peru, and, having returned from his culinary travels, has set up his shop in the new trendy area of La Guillotière.

Since then, his bistro has always been full and was voted best bistro by the Fooding Guide in 2015. His recipes are impertinent, foreign, and bold, surprising the taste buds without confusing them. Thus, coconut cream, anchovies, basil and toasted bread, pork belly, red cabbage, turnips, kumquats and wakame, grilled mackerel, sweet onions, tomatoes, red peppers, coriander flowers, almond biscuit, goat cheese sorbet and thistle syrup are sure to amaze you…

His signature is in emphasising known, everyday flavours that we rediscover through intonations from elsewhere. On the wine side, the menu offers only local wine growers, which is a great thing when you're between Beaujolais and the Rhône.
