Join us in Olio for an exciting journey around one of the world's most diverse and bountiful regions. Here at Olio we believe the key to the great cuisine of the Mediterranean lies in its simplicity, we use this philosophy as an inspiration for all our dishes: seasonal, local ingredients prepared in a style that will bring out their natural flavours. Organic produce and meats, as well as fish from sustainable fisheries and environmentally sound aquaculture farms, have been chosen to complement this philosophy. So let us interpret for you the foods of Italy, Spain, Greece and Morocco.

I frequently stay at a hotel near Pearson airport and have been looking for some quality restaurants nearby. Based on Tripadvisor reviews I decided to give Olio a try. This restaurant is in the Sheraton hotel so there is plenty of parking. I tried the Surf and Turf. The filet mignon was excellent. Prepared medium rare. Was very tasty and... More

I visited Olio over the summer for a Yelp brunch event. I am usually apprehensive about buffets, and I guess it is wrong to assume that the food will be sub-par because of the volume that needs to be created. However, I was blown away by the quality of the food and the number of options we had to choose... More

We had our work Christmas lunch and everyone loved it! Friendly staff, great attentive service & casual atmosphere. We opted for their Holiday lunch buffet, which had a good variety of salads, main dish you could choose salmon, turkey, tasty veggies, and dessert too. Definitely want to come back and try their breakfast buffet. I liked the fact that they... More

With a group of 16, getting fed in a restaurant can be a challenge for all involved. The staff set up a table in an area slightly removed from the restaurant crowd, but still in touch wit the feel of the place. We ordered from a fairly complex menu and all had plenty of choices. I had the fish of... More

Thank you very much for your feedback, we are delighted that you enjoyed your experience. It sounds like you sat in our semi-private area of the restaurant, great spot for groups of 12-40. It's separated for privacy, but not completely so you still feel like you're in the restaurant. For a group of 16 we would definitely prefer to create... More
