Good Food and Wonderful Staff

Went to Tattinger's Holiday Inn Barrie, for New Year Day brunch for second year in a row. Chef Paul at the omelette station was just as personable as ever. Omlettes made as you wanted with chatter and smiles to go along. Food was varied and delicious. Curry turkey was great!! The roast beef... read more

We ate here only because it was raining so hard we couldn't imagine leaving the hotel. We were there on a Sunday night. The waitress (only one was working and no bartender) literally ran around try to serve the customers quickly. She was moving fast, but the service was still slow and I overheard that this happens every Sunday night.... More

We can start by skipping dislikes. This restaurant is simply amazing. The lunch buffet is out of this world. It gives the word buffet a whole new meaning. Chef Paul is the best Chef we have ever met. Move over Gordon Ramsay. Everything is delicious from start to finish. The prices are worth more than every penny. It's situated in... More

I always find the staff at Tattinger's to be friendly and helpful. As a vegan it can sometimes be hard to find healthy cruelty-free options in restaurants, but Paul the cook has been especially helpful. Once he made me a portobello burger, and last week he zipped up a wonderful veggie stir fry. Thank you Paul and thank you Tattinger's!

The last time I ate here (a few years ago) I was very impressed so I decided to return after a recent business trip. The quality of the food was not the same. My fish was overcooked and the creme brulee was watery at the bottom. The menu is good but perhaps some of the kitchen processes need to be... More

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn which is attached to this restaurant. We went to the breakfast for breakfast twice. It is a buffet type breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries, waffles and a good selection of cut up fruits, several types of bread and muffins and cereals. Everything was good, fresh and they did... More

Come here often. Mostly to work on, well, work. Food is nice, service can be a bit spotty. Really depends who you get as a server. Sometimes takes long just to get someone to stop at your table.

This morning my spouse took me to Tattinger's for Sunday brunch, and we are sure to be back again. The food was fantastic! There was such a great variety of breakfast and lunch items, each more tantalizing than the next. However, what I really enjoyed was Chef Paul's obvious passion for his work. He demonstrated pride, enthusiasm, and hospitality. We... More

Its been awhile since I have been here and the food has gone way downhill. Here for a week so I tried a few different things. None of them good. Food was bland, under seasoned and most of the time served warm or cold. They say new menu, maybe but I think most things come out of a box and... More

Thank you for your review. It is unfortunate that we were not able to please you with our menu items during your stay. Our new Tattinger's menu was launched in November and has been received with great comments. Some of the feature items like Bubble and Squeek and the Pork Shoulder bring our customers back to us time after time.... More

Boo!! Bad decision to eliminate this buffet that's been in existence for years! Their best staff have also left. The Mandarin is still next door - but not as good as the Tattinger's Saturday Night buffet used to be!! Shame on you Holiday Inn.
