Casually upscale in Mississauga


I'm new to the Mississauga area. Does anyone have any good recommendations for good quality yet casually upscale dining in Mississauga? Thanks for your help.

  1. One of our Favs is the Palm's Court at Hwy #10 & The Queensway (The Rabba Plaza). Food is excellent, friendly service and never had an issue with cleanliness as suggested by the reviewer below. Has white table cloths, a nice touch, and is quiet if you are looking for that. Caters to the 50+ crowd mainly. If you like grilled liver.........good stuff!!

    1. Whereabouts in Missisauga Keith?

      If you are in the Clarkson/Lorne Park/Port Credit area, you may want to try:
      Aielli (sp?) for Italia
      Breakwater (at Waterside Inn) - though will lean towards more "upscale"
      Rosewood Bistro (Dundas at Mississauga Rd)
      Hooks for cajun fish

      I would avoid Michael's Back Door - I'be been 2 or 3 times - the food has always been mediocre (even for Mississauga), overpriced and service poor. Though I admit, it has been about 2 years since I have been

        Great angel hair pasta with lobster at Michael's Back Door though.

      2. I have to mention Alioli by Square One. My go to place for fine Italian dining in Mississauga.

        1. Via Allegro is on the upscale side of casually upscale but I would not hesitate to go there for a nice meal. The food and wine are fantastic.

            Via Allegro is in Etobicoke. I stopped going there about 5 year's ago when they jacked up the prices by almost 20% plus we waited almost a hour for our dinner. The place is really over rated !

          2. Keith,
            What type of food do you like and as mentioned, where in Mississagua? If you are in the south, I would stick to the Port Credit mentions.
            I would add to the list Rogues
            If you are in North Mississauga, there are fewer options..
            In Streetsville the Pearl St. Cafe is nice and I like Saucy's as well..

              If you're referring to the Pearl Street Bistro in Streetsville, I believe it's been closed for over a year now.
