Description: Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil Restaurant in May, 2010. Since then, the restaurant has been named among the top 10 best new Canadian restaurants of 2010 by enRoute Magazine, and among the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine. Quatrefoil Restaurant is also featured as a prime dining destination in the 2011 edition of Where to Eat in Canada. Located in the quaint community of Dundas, Ontario, the restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine in a charming heritage home turned modern eatery. Macfarlane and Mitropoulos, a husband-and-wife team, met in the kitchen of Toronto's Scaramouche Restaurant, before heading to Europe to seek out new food styles and experiences. Together, the pair has cooked in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, training under notable chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gary Hollihead.

“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

It has been a while since my husband and I have had such a wonderful dinner. We like to try new restaurants but have been reluctant because our success rate recently has been poor.. Until tonight! A beautiful restaurant (love the decor). Excellent service and the food was delicious. Would definately recommend this restaurant to anyone. All in all we had a wonderful experience and were thrilled to celebrate our anniversary there!!

“Wonderful experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We have been here for lunch and dinner on several occasions. Some people may think it's expensive; however, you cannot have a better meal and 'experience'. Every staff member is a professional, knowledgeable and friendly. An afternoon lunch outside under that gorgeous tree is simply exquisite. Unlike 'Ellen's' comment about the restaurant not being 'packed', we've been on a Tuesday night and it was very busy.
Great for a romantic dinner, lunch with friends, and groups are also beautifully accommodated.
Highly recommended.

“Great food, but very, very expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

Wonderful atmosphere, great service, amazing food! Only slight on this place is that it's so pricey! I get it. Five star restaurants are expensive... but I would think if they brought the prices down ever so slightly that they would be packed day in and day out. When we were there the restaurant was half empty. Probably due to the prices. But if your looking for a great place to eat and don't mind paying for it, this is the place to go. Only food we LOVED in the Hamilton area that compared to Toronto dining.

“Exceptional food in a nice setting, but pricey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Quatrefoil offers in a nice setting. The food is always outstanding and there is enough choice on the menu, although a little more variation could be welcome (I visit Quatrefoil on a semi-regular basis because my employer offers our visitors dinner here). The waiters are always attentive and very professional.

The only drawback is the price, although there is a prix-fixe lunch menu for $30 (without wines), which is great value.
