Was invited to Collingwood this weekend and want to take my hosts out for a nice dinner in or around the area. All suggestions are welcome....

    There is a place on the main drag in downtown Collingwood...right now I can't remember what it is called, but it has a big patio and a lovely indoors. Food served is country-upscale, stuffed sole, lamb chops, that sort of thing.

        27 on Fourth is very nice. Dining at Blue Mountain can be a challenge at the best of times, so I would avoid the "village" at all costs. Didn't know Oliver opened something up though - interesting.

          We've gone to Sisi on Main in Thornbury, a nice small town just beyond the Blue Mountain village area. Very nice food and a hip vibe plus a bar where you can hang out while waiting for a table. It's quite busy, I would advise making reservations. Agree with "Cereal Killer" about the village, it's very touristy (not in a good way!).

            I'd second the recc for Sisi on Main. It's been a couple of years since I was there, but it was great, and just far enough away from The Village.

              Catch 22 for seafood, Green Mango Tree for Thai fusion, Cafe Chartreuse for breakfast, and for fine dining, I would go to Thornbury to Largo. Very nice atmosphere - to rival the best in Toronto - with a view and a patio overlooking Thornbury harbour. Food tends to the sweet side (braised pork tenderloin had a maple glaze and was served with cabbage and root veggies given a blueberry glaze - a bit overly sweet for me but delicious anyway) but the antipasto platter is amazing - better than any appetizer I have had in many five star places... Service can be hit or miss though.
