Friendly little bistro ... menu changes, but the eats are good! Their desserts are quite good - think I had a chocolate pate there, and they have decent wines. Reservations recommended.

We had the good fortune attend our daughter's wedding reception at Groovy Tuesday's Bistro. It was great!! The staff friendliness, the suitability and decorations of the facility and the food all were great. We can't wait to go back to try other items on their menu and enjoy their hospitality. I am confident that everything would be just a delicious... More

The food is consistently delicious and beautifully presented. I love the daily Naan bread choice which has the most yummy combinations of toppings. And... More

I was recently introduced to this quaint place by a friend who took me there for lunch. It had a great, unusual menu but with something for everyone. After trying the homemade burger, I was sold! Fantastic. Great daily lunch specials too.

Last minute decision to stop by for dinner and glad we did. The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent. It is another hidden gem in Barrie. If in the area this place is a must for dinner or lunch.
