We went to celebrate a special occasion with some friends. Service, food and ambience are top notch. Our appetizers, oysters, crab pastry were delicious. Our mains, steak, pasta dish, salad , rack of lamb and tuna were all delicious, perfectly seasoned. Lovely tray of mini desserts was a wonderful touch.

I'd been looking forward to the restaurant since moving to Barrie and chose a special occasion with my husband to visit but unfortunately it didn't quite live up to the hype - guess that's the problem with hype. To start with the music was too loud and 90's pop - should have been a clue for the food to follow... More

We chose the tasting menu and were wonderfully surprised, costly but worth it! All courses were unique and beautifully presented with perfect portion sizes. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable; as you open the door to an refurbished old house you feel 'at home'. A wonderful fine dining experience!

Rather unique "eats" at this restaurant. Only one problem that I didn;t like is that you leave hungry small portions and very expensive.

I have had many good experiences there because I know the owner/chef Marco to be a great chef BUT NOT THIS EVENING (Tuesday August 9, 2016). I... More

My husband and I joined another couple here for a birthday celebration (last minute). Barrielicious was on and the menu was small but the choices were delightful. The food is absolutely delicious and the service is 5 star. Staff are extremely friendly and make every effort to cater to your needs. Our waitress didn't miss a thing, from perfect timing... More

Never dissappointed, always enjoyed! Gips is fabulous, service is spectacular, decor is cozy and inviting. Too bad the location isn't the nicest area yet.... Keep up the good work, please!
