Dropped in for lunch - we had sandwiches off the menu very eclectic. Service was good and efficient and talked a little to the chef. A small place and a little unusual location, but great flavours. Found it a little pricey, and rich on the tummy but you will find some ingredients and flavours here you won't find many other... More

This was our second visit to Cabin Bistro. We had dinner at the previous location. We tried the bistro for lunch at the now downtown spot that is convenient and attractive. My husband raved non-stop about his steak burger and my son and I had the lobster roll. I would have given the restaurant a five star rating but the... More

Having come for dinner, my wife and I came for the day and had to come to the Cabin. The lunch menu with great options, though we settled on a steak burger, amazing! And my wife had the lobster roll, even more amazing. This place is a must try in Collingwood for lunch and dinner; and we don't even live... More

Subtle tastes and creative combinations. Friendly service. This place is a hidden gem.We will be back to try more menu dishes as every dish we had was a pleasant surprise! soup of the day was a lobster broth Strachatella ( hope the spellings correct ) It was very unusual and pleasing. Hen tacos were great. Couldn't understand why they wouldn't... More

I booked my husband's birthday dinner here because we wanted to try something new....and we were blown away! The atmosphere was both homey and eclectic, Vanessa our server was fabulous, and the food by Chef Justin was spectacular! Lobster tagliatelle, Kolapore trout, beef tartare, beef tenderloin - all amazing and the presentation was so creative! Run - don't walk -... More

Travelled from Toronto to have lunch with friends in Collingwood, lovely, cozy restaurant. Excellent menu, choices for all palates, reasonable prices. Our group had most items on the lunch menu and one from the dinner menu, all were excellent.

It's just off the main strip. It's not rack of lamb, heavy, old school. It's contemporary, elegant, and most of all, yummy. Justin Miller prepared, hands down, the most unique prix fixe 5 course meal. Flavours surprised me, textures were subtle and enticing. His timing was impeccable and casual. He came to ask how our dinner was. He was friendly... More

Great decor and inviting. We had the escargot and pumpkin bisque. Following that we tried the lamb poutine and duck. Finally the creme brulee. Everything was exceptional. The Chef even came to our table to ask how our food was. I understand there is a new menu for Spring. Can't wait to go back and sample some more dishes!

Menu reads really well but the execution isn't there. My duck confit was really dry. Too bad, because Collingwood needs places offering food like this. I will give them a 3 for at least trying and just hope they get better by the time I'm back for another go.

After a tiring day on the hills, the last thing you want is to have to wait forever to receive your meal. Luckily the Cabin Bistro had an relaxing environment and speedy service with a smile. Food was well presented and tasted just as good as it looked. The Cabin Bistro offers gourmet food for an reasonable price. I enjoyed... More
