“never disappointed”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

I find Chris to be a great personality. While dining here you are made to feel special. The food is always consistently great over the years and I feel that more people are yet to discover this gem. Cudos to Chris and his son the chef

“Only fine dinning in Brantford”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

if your after meat & potatoes go to McDonalds or the Keg. The chefs at Andreou take real pride in their preparation & presentation. The menu del dia is inventive and worthy. When dinning off the beaten track these days I am weary ordering ecliptic entrées because in most places they arrive with freezer burn. Not so here. Everything tastes market fresh which explains why locals may feel prices are high. Keeping fresh sea bass in inventory comes at a cost.
Other reviewers have complained of Chris, not his food. Chris is passionate about the food that his chefs (they are also his sons) prepare. His exuberance may seem excessive if your used to dinning at a chain, but i can assure you that they truly take criticism to heart. Food is their life. And if a restrauntor does not have pride, your better eating at a chain. If my review does not convince you to try Andreou, visit their Facebook page and tell me that the photographs of the food don't.

“Fine Dining....”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Me and my wife have come here about once a year for some fine dining. We get all dolled up to get treated like royalty and eat some fancy meals. Very professional and polite staff and the food is top-notch. A high-class establishment serving high class food. Not snobby, but very welcoming.

“A perfect evening!”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

My wife and I recently moved to Brantford and we've wanted to try Cafe Andreou since driving past the charming old building. Last night we were treated to one of the best traditional fine dining experiences in a long time. The atmosphere was elegant. The food was, in a word, sensational. Warm bread and a wonderful tapenade was served immediately after ordering. The gnocchi bolognese and escargot appetizers were both delicious and creatively prepared. The tiger shrimp Puttanesca was perfectly seasoned and the sea bass wrapped in prosciutto was a rare treat. Even our impromptu special dessert request was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. Kudos to the kitchen. Service was impeccable and the timing of our meal was well paced and flawless. Peter, our server was polite and professional. Chris was entertaining and knowledgeable as he guided our wine selection to accompany our courses. We're already looking forward to our next visit.
