Good Restaurants in Windsor?

Any recommendations for good restaurants in Windsor, ON.

  1. If you want good ol' Scottish food (not the hippest cuisine in the universe, I know), hit Kildare House on Wyandotte St. E.

    Top-of-the-line French: Le Steak at Fillmore East downtown. Their website is kaput, so call first (probably a good idea anyhow).

    Best Chinese is said to be Wah Court, but I haven't been there.

      JImM, what do they serve at Kildare House? I had no idea there was a Scottish place there. I get all turned around on Wyandotte, but is it closer to the Tunnel than the Bridge?

      Wah Court does have good Chinese. It's very casual and don't expect to get all of your food at the same time. They have dim sum until 2:00 on the weekends and possibly longer during the week. They will let you order from the dim sum menu at any time though.

        It's in the Walkerville neighborhood--so it is not between the tunnel and the bridge but east of both. Facing Detroit downtown it will be about two miles to your right (remember Canada is south of the U.S. here).

        They have fish and chips, Irish stew as I recall, good big English breakfasts, sandwiches, and stranger stuff like haggis and mushy peas--a large pub menu. Plenty of scotch as you might imagine, plus many beers on tap. Live music many nights.

          Thanks! I just might have to take my Scottish mom there for lunch one day. I wonder if they have meat pies and sausage rolls. We used to buy Scottish food and bring it back across, but now they won't let you bring meat products since mad cow. Go figure!!

          1. re: grouper

            No usually to the meat pies and sausage rolls unless it's a special for the night. There's a fish and chip shop that just opened on Howard though that offers these and pasties.

    2. There is board devoted to Ontario, and you might get a good volume of reponses by posting this question there.

      1. Le Steak closed last month.
        The best modern food in Windsor is at Mamo Bistro, 5880 Wyandotte St. E. Casual, small, fresh and interesting. Not expensive. Chef used to cook at August in New Orleans.
        For authentic Italian, head to Erie Street where there are about 20 very good restaurants, especially La Contessa.

          Mamo is now closed. They moved to former Bin 151 location and have opened Smoke n Spice.

            My fave for Chinese (and Dim Sum) these days is JADE in Windsor.

            There are a host of good restaurants along Windsor's Little Italy (Erie Street). One of my favorites being MEZZO.

            Downtown, it's CHATHAM STREET GRILL.
