Wedding Venue help needed... PLS

My fiance and I are trying to plan our wedding, (hopefull for this year). We're looking for a place to accomodate a min. of 300 people (our big fat Portuguese wedding) in the GTA. Food is very important to us, (we're looking for a Portuguese menu) and equally important is the venue. I want something beautiful. Any suggestions???
Also, has anyone been to Roma's Place Banquet Hall in Mississauga? If so, how was the food. Thanks

  1. Try the Liberty Grand, you won't be disappointed. I had 230 people for my Italian/Chinese wedding, including a lot of foodie friends, and nothing but rave reviews from all. Food is great, and plentiful!

      I suspect the Liberty Grand will be fully booked for this year by now.

        Was there the other day....they said they were fully booked and way into 2011 already. But there could be sundays or fridays left??

          Whoops, didn't think of that, sorry! I booked 6 months ahead for my March wedding, but since it was off-season there was plenty of availability. We also looked at Palais Royale, which is absolutely stunning, but I've never eaten there, so I can't speak for the food quality. They may also be booked though, I think it's quite popular.

        Hey there! I'm actually trying to plan an Italian/Chinese wedding as well! I would love to hear more about your wedding. If your comfortable with it, would you mind sending me an email?

      3. Casa Mendoza on Lakeshore would be perfect, but I suspect they might not be able to handle 300 people. Absolutely worth a call though - the view from their giant patio is staggering.

        1. I went to a wedding at Roma's Place last year but I don't remember what I ate. :) So it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either.

            thanks everyone for your feed back/suggestions... Keep them coming.

          2. I remember the food at Roma's being decent. I DJ roughly 50 weddings/year and eat at a lot of banquet halls & venues. For 300 people you will probably have to check out some of the bigger spaces in Woodbridge.

            The Manor - good late night seafood buffet, it's on a lake, really nice for pictures

            Royal Ambassador - a bit out of town (Caledon), but amazing food, also has a lake, waterfall & good landscaping for pictures on-site

            The Venetian - Best roast lamb I have ever had! I think they have a Portuguese menu

            Le Jardin - Also pretty good and they seem very organized

            The Liberty Grand - Never disappoints in their service and food.
