Quatrefoil never disappoints! Between the service and the food, it was all excellent. We did the tasting menu on a Friday night. Perfect for us: lovely portions and variety. They didn't have the wine we chose but the waiter quickly offered a substitute at the same price. Lovely to go to a place where food preparation, presentation and service is... More

Excellent food and service. Generally a great dining experience. Expensive and yet blue for money given the quality of the meal. I would say this is at least the equivalent of a 2 star Michelin for less than 1 star pricing. Simply the best in its class in our region.

I recently visited with a small group. The service was excellent and the food great. There is a great choice of items on the menu. There are also daily specials. The menu items change to some extent on the seasons and what is available locally. However some items like the cumbrae steaks are always there. The choice of wine is... More

When people complain about the price, they are silly for not checking the menu in advance. This is fine dining. Rich flavors, smaller portions, hefty price. If you want fine dining, give this place a try. The servers are wonderful. I had the scallops to start (you get 2 and they aren't big so be prepared for this) and taste... More

This is our second visit to Quatrefoil both visits were for Valentine’s Day dinners. The decor is nice, presentation is exquisite and the flavours were very good. One drawback is that many of the tables are too close together for private conversations, so when I was making reservations this time I mentioned this and I was seated upstairs. Our table... More

Pleasant atmosphere & staff. Wonderful presentation and flavor. Located in a charming house - small areas on 1st and 2nd floors - should make a reservation

Quaint, whimsical restaurant right in the heart of enchanting Dundas! Our son treated my husband and I to a wonderful dinner last summer, it was perfect. Our server was attentive, and informative, and the meal was great. If you come during the warmer weather, please do yourself a favour and sit outside on the patio, very serene. I plan to... More

Description
Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil Restaurant in May, 2010. Since then, the restaurant has been named among the top 10 best new Canadian restaurants of 2010 by enRoute Magazine, and among the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine. Quatrefoil Restaurant is also featured as a prime dining destination in the 2011 edition of Where to Eat in Canada. Located in the quaint community of Dundas, Ontario, the restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine in a charming heritage home turned modern eatery. Macfarlane and Mitropoulos, a husband-and-wife team, met in the kitchen of Toronto's Scaramouche Restaurant, before heading to Europe to seek out new food styles and experiences. Together, the pair has cooked in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, training under notable chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gary Hollihead.
