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!

Had a quiet dinner with my wife at The North Restaurant during Barrielicious Festival 2016. 3 course dinner for $25 each. The restaurant is located just north of Kempenfelt Bay, on a one way street, in the downtown core of Barrie. Parking is not an issue. We had the glazed Duck wings(2) and Mussels for apps. Each were tasty however... More

We each got an appetizer a main a dessert and a wine pairing with each course. The timing was incredible, it was almost as if the server was only serving our table, but we... More
