Where in HALTON is good to eat?
I am new to this area, and am looking for any recommendations/reviews of any type of restaraunts in the Acton, Georgetown, Oakville, Burlington, Norval and the like. Thanks!
We moved to Georgetown from Toronto four months ago and were happy to find some very good restaurants in the area. Here is a list of the good ones we have tried:
- The Cellar - //www.cellarrestaurant.com/
Located in downtown Georgetown in the basement of an old bank building. Nice ambiance with exposed brick walls and live music on the weekends. The food is very good and nicely presented. I would definitely recommend it.
- The Shepherd's Crook
Located in downtown Georgetown. A nice English pub with live music on Friday and some Saturaday nights (often celtic bands?). The food is good (but not great) pub food. This is a nice place for a relaxing evening.
- Mattina's Cucina
Italian restaurant located in Georgetown. The food is very good and the owners are friendly, but the decor is outdated.
- The Main Street Inn
This is a quaint old inn located in downtown Georgetown. I have only been here for breakfast and lunch, but the food has been fantastic. This Inn has two suites for people looking for a B&B and also has a great patio. The only thing to watch for is that the Inn is up for sale.
The Copper Kettle
Located in Glen Williams, a hamlet that is now part of Georgetown. This is a quaint British pub which often has live music. I have been there for lunch and the food was very good. I would recommend calling ahead of time as it is not always open.
Lebanese i recommend Little Lebanon @ 2-645 Plains Rd E. I like the chicken shawarma and fattoush salad. the beef shawarma is not shaved like the chicken so i didn't enjoy it as much. It does have a few tables for dinning in, but I would recommend just getting take-out as it is very tiny. And i also like the Baba Ganouj @ Montforts on brant st downtown. You can eat in or take out, and its about the only restaurant in halton open until 4am, which is nice, but the shawarma is lower quality.
Chinese i recommend Le Chinois on Brant St. I've tried most things on the menu and nothing sticks out as being something i wouldn't eat again. My favourite dish is the orange beef. Just be careful if you dont like spicy food as some of the menu items are pretty hot, but they are happy to make it mild if requested. I find the food best on Saturday nights, they seem to have a really good chef that night. They do delivery, take out and dine in. If you order on a weekend night, expect 1-1.5hrs for delivery.
Greek - Sotris on Harvester Rd near Guelph Line is the only place you should bother with. They recently moved here from a plains rd e location and the new restaurant dinning room is beautifully done, but you can also order take out.
Thai - Bahn Thai on Fairview @ Appleby Line is a great AYCE. And Thai Sense in Oakville on Lakeshore Rd W and Bronte Rd has a very reasonably priced lunch and happy hour specials.
Indian - Bombay Grille on Fairview between Walkers Line and Guelph Line. Dine in or Take out.
Fish and Chips - The Thisle on Fairview just west of Walkers Line. The best fish and chips around. I've never eatten anything else there. You can get take out but i recommend eatting in (the decore is horrible and the restaurant is usually brimming with an elderly croud) but the fish batter gets soggy on the ride home. They close at 7pm and you usually have to wait a few minutes for a table but it is sooooooo worth it.
The Martini House on Elisabeth St has a great selection as well. Its a nice sheek bistro. My favourite is the Asian Nachos. And actually you should check out most of the restaurants along Elisabeth.
a few more choices for Burlington...
Walkers Fish Market on Harvester E of Walkers Line has a really nice sellection of fish, although I can't resist the lobster mac & cheese. Beautiful decor. They just opened a second one in Mississauga on Dundas E of Winston Churchhill or Erins Mills. Can't remember which and I often mix them up.
Pepperwood is another nice resturant, right on Lakeshore, W of Brant. With a patio out front, you can sit and see the lake. Have eaten lunch there more than once.
