I love the décor in this Bistro. This is a great lunch or dinner spot. I would recommend this for couples, groups and friends rather than families. Has a nice metropolitan feel to it. But I didn't like that it is located directly across from the tattoo parlour. I didn't feel comfortable walking outside alone to get something from my... More

Totally enamoured with the menu at this restaurant, if you are traveling to Barrie put this place on your list. The menu changes as the seasons bring fresh food to the region but the staples are all good. I have been there several times to eat and enjoyed each meal.

I have been to Painters Hall Bistro several times and have never been disappointed. Our recent visit was during Barrielicious and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The selection is wonderful, the staff was friendly and helpful.

Had dinner last week and all 4 in our party enjoyed their meals. Service was excellent as we sat in back room and were looked after by the bartender (owners son). Great service. Prices were very fair for quality of food and presentation. Will be back.

Whether you are visiting Barrie, passing through or if you are resident this restaurant is a MUST TRY. It is pricey but it is worth every penny from the appetizer right through to the dessert. The service has always been on 'Q' and they will give you an honest opinion on what you should order off the menu, judging by... More

The food was excellent and tasty. Good menu. Dinner for two will (three courses) set you back well over $100.00 (ours was $137 with tip). Would certainly go back to this restaurant. Interesting decorating.
