Description: Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil Restaurant in May, 2010. Since then, the restaurant has been named among the top 10 best new Canadian restaurants of 2010 by enRoute Magazine, and among the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine. Quatrefoil Restaurant is also featured as a prime dining destination in the 2011 edition of Where to Eat in Canada. Located in the quaint community of Dundas, Ontario, the restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine in a charming heritage home turned modern eatery. Macfarlane and Mitropoulos, a husband-and-wife team, met in the kitchen of Toronto's Scaramouche Restaurant, before heading to Europe to seek out new food styles and experiences. Together, the pair has cooked in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, training under notable chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gary Hollihead.

Booked here at last minute for my wife's birthday. Wasn't sure about a french style restaurant. I was very surprised at how flavorful the food was. The big surprise was that we were very full after our meal. That does not usually happen. I had the beef and it just melted in my mouth. My wife had the duck which... More

There's a big difference between a ver good restaurant and a great restaurant - this is a great restaurant! Very elegant yet comfortable and not rushed. Service and ambiance are outstanding bug food quality and presentation are the stars of the show. Home made bread was the best we've had so much that we had a second order. truffle gnocchi... More

Atmosphere is lovely, service prompt and friendly, food fabulous! Whether a special occasion or just an evening out this Restraurant would not disappoint. Lunch with friends on the outdoor patio is lovely, too, in the nice weather. Highly recommend Quatrefoil!

The food and the service were excellent. Our server was very attentive and all the wait staff were very pleasant. The food was prepared very well and some of the dishes were surprisingly unique. One criticism was that the upstairs dining room, where we were seated, was quite noisy. The acoustics are bad and it made conversation somewhat difficult.

I've been to Quatrefoil a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent. It's my favourite fine dining restaurant in the region. The lunch prix fixe menus are an amazing deal. This is a must try restaurant for a special occasion or just a special treat.

We were a table of 10 in their private room on the 2nd floor of this quaint and most unique home of a restaurant. I simply loved this place. The food, the service, everything was top notch and first class all the way. I have just found my new luxury dining experience. See all my pictures posted to know what... More

We highly recommend this restaurant. The food was excellent. The scallops to start with are full of flavor. The steak entree was very tender and accompanied nicely with potato purée. I had a tuna on special. Good but a little over cooked, my only complaint and not even really a complaint. The dessert was so clever, phyllo pastry caramelized with... More

We have dined at Quatrefoil many times and always have a great meal with excellent service. The most recent was last Saturday night for our anniversary. Every dish we ordered was fabulous. The stand outs were the parsnip soup special and the gnocchi. I won't be able to describe them and do them justice, but both plates went back to... More

We visited this restaurant recently for a special occasion. The staff were very friendly and professional. We were well looked after. The food is delicious, wonderful infused flavours and great presentation however....the portions are scant considering the price. It is not good to leave a restaurant after a 3 course meal and feel hungry. We are not people who eat... More
