“Great eating experience”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We had dinner there last night with friends for the Barrielicious experience. Fantastic dinner, great atmosphere and worth the trip. Best thing was the chef accomodated the fact there were two vegetarians at the table and came up with the most mouth watering stuffed portabello meal. Wait staff went out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. Will return.

“Delicious cuisine in an unlikely location!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I had become a fan of this restaurant before the new ownership had taken over. The chef is fantastic and the wait staff are very warm and accommodating. I liked it so much that I booked my wedding reception in their banquet room. Definitely recommended as a must try!

“All Good”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were headed to Barrie one morning and came across the Bistro 26. Breakfast took us buy surprise and the atmosphere at the airport restaurant was delicious. We knew that we would be back. Went for lunch and it was surprisingly tasty and fulfilling. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable and seem to really listen when you place your order. It is hard to describe the tastes that come out of the kitchen. Amazing tastes that you will not soon forget. The the piece de resistance was dinner last evening, Mussels steamed in a salsa and plenty to quick start your pallet, Co co vin with rosti potatoes and mouth watering vegetables. Last but not least desert coconut custard with pineapple and mango topping. Just my meal and my husband was speechless with his creme brule. I suppose you can guess its our favorite at Wasaga Beach / Stayner.

“Amazing Every Time”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Bistro 26 is the new name for the old Fud Grille at the Edenvale Aerodrome. The chef is the same, as are the waitstaff; it is only the ownership/name that has changed.
We've been for 2 visits during Barrielicious and could not have been more pleased each time. We have enjoyed full size portions of the steak, mussels, duck rolls, and coq-au-vin. The food is prepared exactly the way you like it, portions are very generous, flavours are amazing and the service can't be beat.

This restaurant is about 35 minutes from our home, but we make the trip regularly as we have never had one bad experience here. It might not look like much from a drive by on Hwy 26, but trust me....go in for an amazing, friendly casual fine dining experience!
