After all these + reviews, I had to check it out. The place was almost packed when we showed up for brunch at 11am. It was a bit noisy and smelled like the kitchen. Menu was intriguing and seemed a bit innovative. (If you are looking for healthy items then this may not be the place for you!) The maple... More

Crab cake eggs benedict was fantastic, as was the homemade ketchup and two hot sauces. Friendly and accommodating staff. Best to make reservations for dinner but for brunch they don't take reservations, it's first come first serve basis.

I agree with some of the reviews below. I don't understand why this place gets such good ratings. It was a big disappointment. It's basically overpriced mini dishes...and the food is not even all that good. The dinner menu is tapas and tapas is meant for sharing, so why have a dish with one little rib on it?? You cannot...

Nice restaurant with very interesting menu. The dinner formula gives you the possibility to taste several dished without being overloaded. The service is friendly and quite reliable and I got good advice on what to select on how to compose my dinner. The wilde boar sausage was delicious as well as a small dish of tripe not to mention the... More

I visit the beast regularly for brunch. I always take visiting guests and recommend it when people ask for recommendations. Overall the service is solid, but the restaurant is usually busy due to its popularity and quality. I have sampled most of the menu, and everything that I've had is good. My favourites are the pork hocks and the beastwich.... More

My wife and I met friends for brunch at Beast, and we were a group of 7 (including our daughter). The staff was happy to help us figure out our seating and had no problem making space for our booster seat for our daughter. The food was excellent! My wife had one of the benedicts and really enjoyed her meal,... More

My husband and I met up with another couple at this cosy, neighbourhood restaurant for a not so ordinary weekday brunch. The weather was beautiful so we sat on the patio. Our server was friendly and unobtrusive. Two of us ordered the 'beastwich,' a fried chicken thigh open faced sandwich, that proved to be both satisfying and filling. I struggled... More

Looking for delicious interesting food with a cozy feel to it? Look no further but go to Beast. I like them best for Brunch or dinner but anytime is great too. What I like best is their interesting menu, local focus with food and wine. We should be eating and drinking from what's made around us and Beast never disappoints.... More

We go here when ever possible. Sometimes it is for brunch with our kids, and we always love it, and it is also our go to place for date night. These guys know food and they never disappoint. I recommend you have the daily special, it is always something interesting and amazing.

Lovingly owned by a couple who celebrate local and organic, small farm products in a way that is totally unpretentious and warm. A great place to converse (not crazy loud). This is a superlative place for brunch (extended to Monday & Friday for chefs and industry who can't come on weekends). Small sharable plates for dinner with so much imagination... More
