Description: Chefs Fraser Macfarlane and Georgina Mitropoulos opened Quatrefoil Restaurant in May, 2010. Since then, the restaurant has been named among the top 10 best new Canadian restaurants of 2010 by enRoute Magazine, and among the top 10 best new restaurants of 2011 in Toronto by Toronto Life magazine. Quatrefoil Restaurant is also featured as a prime dining destination in the 2011 edition of Where to Eat in Canada. Located in the quaint community of Dundas, Ontario, the restaurant offers contemporary French cuisine in a charming heritage home turned modern eatery. Macfarlane and Mitropoulos, a husband-and-wife team, met in the kitchen of Toronto's Scaramouche Restaurant, before heading to Europe to seek out new food styles and experiences. Together, the pair has cooked in some of the best Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe, training under notable chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Gordon Ramsay and Gary Hollihead.

“Outstanding and innovative fine dining”
Reviewed 13 March 2017

Excellent food and service. Generally a great dining experience. Expensive and yet blue for money given the quality of the meal. I would say this is at least the equivalent of a 2 star Michelin for less than 1 star pricing. Simply the best in its class in our region.

“Excellent choice on the menu”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 via mobile

I recently visited with a small group. The service was excellent and the food great. There is a great choice of items on the menu. There are also daily specials. The menu items change to some extent on the seasons and what is available locally. However some items like the cumbrae steaks are always there. The choice of wine is good and it too changes intermittently.

They have smaller rooms available if you are interested in private dining.

“Attentive staff, wonderful flavour ”
Reviewed 24 February 2017 via mobile

When people complain about the price, they are silly for not checking the menu in advance. This is fine dining. Rich flavors, smaller portions, hefty price. If you want fine dining, give this place a try. The servers are wonderful. I had the scallops to start (you get 2 and they aren't big so be prepared for this) and taste was out of this world. I had a rib eye feature. Can't say enough about that entree! It should be a regular on their menu.
I would go back for a special occasion.
