Cafe Andreou does not disappoint. We have dined here on several occasions and have always enjoyed our meals. This last time, we had the octopus and meatballs as starters and the sea bass and lobster pasta as mains. We were far too full for dessert! You could cut the octopus with a fork and the sea... read more

Please ignore the few bad reviews. I was blown away by the quality of the food and the hospitality of this Brantford Restaurant. The food was - like the positive reviews say - as good as any in the big city. From the moment the owner answered the phone to take my reservation to the moment I paid my bill,... More

This restaraunt is hands down one of the best experiences for a laugh and incredible food. With an owner who genuinely cares about his costumes the old school way with love and passion, then to top it off chefs that can make some of the finest food in southern Ontario. Thank you for the great times and food!!

Food was awesome! but I will be happy never to see the owner or give him any business ever in future. The man needs to get behind a wall never to be seen by the customers. Or this restaurant will continue to only have 3 and 1/2 tables with people in them on a Friday night at 7:30pm. Based on... More

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.
