We went to celebrate my parents' 60th wedding anniversary. The meal was very good for the most part though the service was unexceptional. I liked the option of a surprise starter (chicken and bacon pate which was delicious.) But I didn't like not knowing what dessert would be served. It turned out to be tiramisu -- one of my least...

The prix fixe menu is always good. Tonight the soup was top notch, broccoli with a touch of peanut. The salad was good, a house coleslaw. Wife had the duck and prounounced it excellent. I had the lamb shanks and it was the best meat course I've ever had, a bit spicy but very deep flavour and unctuous texture. The... More

If it wasn't for my brother and his fiancee, I would have never found this place. We went there for lunch last fall. I love the atmosphere. It is located in an old corner house. Very cosy and comfy. The menu is not what you would expect. It is quite upscale, but affordable. The menu is small but offers beef,... More

We ate as a party of six yesterday evening and as usual we found it hard to choose only one appetizer but knew that the other four courses would be quite filling. Chef Dario is a very accomplished cook and the menus are so interesting and flavourful. The price for the set meal is excellent and the service charming.

5 course meal, to include a bottle of wine. Menu changes based on what is available and the whims of chef Dario! Situated off the beaten path and a renovated home with outdoor seating available.

Awesome restaurant for lunch and dinner. The service is awesome. The Chef is the owner and he comes out to greet all the guests. The menu changes each day. He makes dishes that he can buy the ingredients locally. It's is mid price range and definitely an enjoyable place to spend with family, friends or business colleagues. Make a reservation... More

I was at Café Dario on July 8, 2016 and had a magnificent meal. I had the escargots to start and they were spicy and great. The tomato/chicken/vegetable soup was to die for but I didn't eat it all because I didn't want to get full. The garden salad was fresh and good. The rack of lamb was fantastic as... More
