“Amazing creme caramel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Not only was the food outstanding but the creme caramel was the best I had ever had.
Nice atmosphere, excellent service and great ambiance. Good choice of main courses and some creative salads and appetizers.
I would definately recommend this restaurant for a romantic evening or a quiet dinner with friends.

“Great food, nice ambience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

This renovated old house has been redone with a modern, but very cosy interior. The dinner menu had plenty of choices but the Kolapore Arctic Char was delicious - and local. The service was great - attentive and pleasant. Wine selections ranged from reasonable to very special. This is one of the nicest restaurants in Thornbury!

“This venue is awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012 via mobile

The mushroom bruschetta was amazing. The fact that you could order by the piece was great. The pappardelle and the fettucini was over the top. The service was outstanding. Well done Andrew et al - we will be back

“Lovely new addition to Thornbury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

I've been to Simplicity twice now, once for the most amazing knocchi and then with a group of 16 for dinner. Service was excellent, food was delightful and the renovations makes it a really nice place to relax and enjoy the food.

“Excellent Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

We dropped in on a Saturday without a reservation and were given a table for four. Brunch was still being served until 2pm, so one person in our party ordered the frittata with goat cheese. This came with a side salad and warm baguette and was delicious - fresh, hot and tasty. Another ordered the chicken burger which was more like a chicken breast grilled and served on a bun - again very delicious. The others ordered the special which was a pulled pork sandwich. Our party of four were all very happy with their choices. The service was excellent and the price very reasonable considering the quality of the food. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
