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.

Decor is very bright and clean allowing the food to stand out even more.We had menus and wine and drink lists promptly. The wine list is extensive,... More

French inspired cuisine is creative and intricate in flavors. Foie gras torchon was fabulous, with many complementing flavors on the sides. Gnocchi was el dente, very tasty sauce and served with fresh garden peas. Veal loin was done to perfection and all sides were wonderful. The striped bass was an unexpected success and the portion was substantial. Rhubarb panna cotta... More

Preparing Salmon (or any fish for that matter) or Scallops is difficult at best. Both were prepared and cooked to perfection The decor, outdoor seating area and atmosphere were very pleasant, friendly and inviting.

Quatrefoil has excellent food, atmosphere and service. Every time I have visited it has been up to the highest standard and is worth a visit if you are after a top "fine dining" experience.

Our first time at Quatrefoil, we decided to take a chance after attending our daughter's "university graduation ceremony". Good thing it was still an early evening, we managed to get a table. Do not take a chance, book your table in advance. Beautiful, quaint, elegant restaurant. Great food, I highly recommend this restaurant as it is a "step away" from... More

The presentation is perfect. The variety is ok. Good wine selection. But we were really impressed by the excellent service. Really really attentive. I highly recommended it, especially for something really romantic.

Excellent food and presentation. Service can be hit and miss. Atmosphere is ok although when busy can seem too noisy and rushed.Small town location is quaint. Go for the food.
