Chef Marc Lyons

Marc Lyons – Executive Chef at Tiara Restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Marc Lyons, the Executive Chef at Queen’s Landing, fell in love with cooking at a young age and he aims to spark this passion within each of his guests at the upscale Niagara-on-the-Lake hotel. Marc pulls from classical French and Asian cooking techniques, seamlessly combining them in ways that accentuate the incredible flavours of the Niagara region.

Exceptional food that combines comfort with sophistication

Marc’s guiding culinary principles encourage him to combine comfort with sophistication and surprise. He aims to maintain some familiarity for his return guests while ensuring the dishes he creates are accessible for a wide range of diners. However, when it comes to flavour and creative flair, Chef Lyons refuses to settle for the status quo. He elevates dishes using the techniques he’s mastered over the past 16 years working at the four diamond restaurants at Vintage Hotels.

Guests who want to explore Marc’s delicious combination of French, Asian and Canadian cuisine can visit the seasoned Chef at Queen’s Landing where he crafts the food for Tiara Restaurant and Bacchus Lounge. Guests who indulge within both the elegant dining room and the casual, but classic lounge will get to see Marc’s diversity as a chef. He customizes each of the menus to reflect the different atmospheres offered by each unique space.

Unforgettable Dining Experiences alongside the Niagara River

If you’re looking for an elevated dining experience with an incomparable view of the Niagara River, visit Tiara Restaurant and indulge in dishes with a higher degree of sophistication. Alternatively, treat yourself to appetizers and meals that are more reminiscent of comfort food – but with a sophisticated twist in Bacchus Lounge.

Of course, you wouldn’t be dining in Niagara-on-the-Lake if you weren’t being served by a chef who appreciates the local producers and, most notably, the local wineries. Chef Lyons and Queen’s Landing’s sommelier collaborate to ensure the wines highlight the farm-to-table freshness of his dishes, so you and your guests will experience a delightful, holistic approach to Niagara flavour that attracts guests throughout Ontario and from south of the border.

Let Marc Lyons share his love of cooking with you. Reserve your table at Tiara Restaurant at Queen’s Landing and see how a passionate chef, exceptional ingredients and a flair for fine food will redefine the ways in which you experience Ontario cuisine. We look forward to serving you.
