This is by far my favourite restaurant in Brantford. In fact the quality of the dishes could compete with some of the top rated restaurants in larger cities. Some personal favourites; Meatballs, Arancini, the Veal Chop (nom nom), Involtini, Chilean Sea Bass (hands down best sea bass I’ve ever had). I’ve never had a bad dish and their soups are... More

We've been three times in the last 3-4 months, excellent each time. Chris ( owner, host? ) is enthusiastic, welcoming and obviously very passionate about dining. The chefs have great imagination and serve up delicious, generous courses made from fresh ingredients, prepared well by those who know food and combinations that work. It's simply the best food in Brantford, probably... More

The food here is out of this world! It is high end...in a league of it own. If I could afford to eat here every Friday, I surely would! THANKS FOR THE LAUGHS!!

I have had lunch at the Cafe Andreou approximately 10 times over the past 8 or 9 years, perhaps as long as it has been in business. It's consistently "decent" in my opinion, but not "smashing" as it should be, or could be. The restaurant itself is very attractive, at least in terms of initial appearances. That said, the interior... More

This is by far the best food we have had in Brantford or Paris hands down. The place is small and very comfortable, the food is heaven and then some, true Italian cooking and very high end ingredients. The staff ranges from mild to wild.... Just like Italy. Parking in the rear of this gem was a bonus.

Right from when we first walked in we felt like regulars. Chris is very outgoing and proud of the food he serves. He should be. All the dishes were very good, wine selection is great. Nice atmosphere. Definit repeat on our next visit to Brantford. Only negative, downtown Toronto prices!

This was the third business dinner I've hosted at Cafe Andreou and all of them have been consistently outstanding. Every aspect of the dining experience is noteworthy and exceptional. The preparation of the food, the professional service, the atmosphere (enhanced by Chris, the owner) make this an enjoyable and memorable experience. We had guests from Georgia, Tennessee, Michigan, Indiana and... More
