Excellent service and excellent food. Finely prepared with ample flavour and proportion. Atmosphere is not as nice as I would like but clean and modern. I think they recently did a little refurbishment. Our friends had been there before and said it seemed to have been updated. I had the seafood spaghetti. Pasta was cooked to perfection. Muscles were a little cool but the hot sauce and pasta quickly warmed them right up. The crab leg was a bit of a waste in the dish as it was very little but did add a hint of flavour. The other seafood, shrimp and calamari were excellent and done just right.
Only problem is price. 2 - 9 ounce glasses of good Chianti an ice cream coffee desert and some spaghetti with seafood totals to about $115 per person! Little on the steep side forme.

Was in Mississauga today and rolled around to lunch time. Went to trip advisor to look for restaurant. Was not disappointed in the Apricot Tree. The quality of the food and the service where exemplary! Our server Eric was so helpful as I have a gluten issue. He just made a great experience even better and I look forward to my next visit.

Italian Restaurant with wonderful food. Welcomed by the owners into the cozy restaurant. The service was outstanding, even though we were a large group.

Zet's Restaurant

Reviewed By Willymakeit - Meaford, Canada

While staying at a local hotel before a flight out, we went to Zet's on the recommendation of friends. Zet's serves a variety of food from all day breakfast to souvlaki and burgers. The restaurant was very busy but the staff were efficient taking and preparing the food orders. Our friends recommended that we order only one souvlaki but I forgot and ordered two. We had enough for 3 people! Large chunks of pork with generous helping of taziki sauce and Greek salad. We would have preferred simple oil and vinegar dressing but it was ok. We found the restaurant a little cool and the decor a little tired but not surprising considering the volume of people they serve.

Reviewed By LADYBUG2012 - Toronto, Canada

We have lived in Mississauga for almost 10 years but had never been to Peter’s In Eglinton... Wow!!! I ordered a small souvlaki plate and the order was enough for 2!!! Let’s not talk about the deli sandwiches, OMG, almost a pound of meat on a Sandwich!!! Service from a certain ‘Uncle Gus’ was entertaining to say the least!!! Thank goodness for ‘doggie bags’!!!!
Worth stopping by & trying it...but if you’re watching your waistline....not the place to go!!!!
Other than the more than generous portions, food was tasty!
Will be back....but perhaps not any time soon....

Raw Aura Organic Cuisine

100% raw ingredients are organic and harvested sustainably and the food is fabulous (I am only a customer, not related in any way to the restaurant)

Reviewed By BobDyck - Kitchener, Canada

My wife Jill and I have been searching for restaurants that meets our meeting style. We have been frustrated over the years in that very few menu items are suitable. Many restaurants are accommodating and will go out of their way to prepare something for us.
We have been on a new eating style for the past 2 1/2 years, and there is no turning back. We feel so much better and I look so much better.
Eating style eliminates grains, sugar and dairy. At most restaurants there are usually only a couple of choices of menu items that we could have, mostly salads.
We were simply blown away in the fact that every single menu item met our criteria for eating, Plus everything was raw. The server was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. The meal prep is done in the open, so we can see what is being prepared. The staff in the prep area were very friendly and happy. A couple in the restaurant helped us through the menu items as they were regulars.
We decided on the Pad Thai, which the couple said was their signature dish. The presentation was beautiful, and the flavour was absolutely wonderful. The Noodles were replaced with spiralized zucchini. I can easily say it was the best dish I’ve had in my entire life.
We also had the lasagna, which was a special of the day. The dish again had a beautiful presentation and the flavors were absolutely spectacular.
We decided partway through to try the kale chips which was done with a cashew cream. Again it was nothing less than spectacular.
The restaurant had a wonderful vibe to it.
We were so excited to have such a wonderful dining experience and will be back many many times.

A casual and cozy atmosphere with personalized and polished service. For the past 9 years, we've been serving over 30 kinds of pasta and traditional veal, chicken and fish dishes made with the finest Italian ingredients. You can also enjoy our wine selection. Come in and experience an authentic taste of Italy!

Reviewed By hennybogan2017 - Toronto, Canada

My loyal foursome of epicurists tried out Andiamo's on a recommendation and were very pleasantly surprised. My first reaction on seeing the small storefront was, "What's so special about this place?" Additionally, the room was too narrow and almost confining to be taken seriously. That is, until the first appetizers arrived. Raves all round for the butternut squash soup and the Agnalotte pasta with a yummy mushroom sauce. Although my tortellini was overspiced, it was still delicious and the Caesar was tasty. Luckily, my Pannacosta dessert was from the $35 specials, a creamy gelatin covered in a mixed berry sauce - and had to be made by a culinary genius. Double luckily, everyone was too full to partake of my offer of a spoonful and this was the piece of resistance pour moi. The assorted menu covered all bases and even mentioned the Italian Prime Minister's name - Alfredo Fettucine. The oil paintings seemed to expand the room and Victoria served us charmingly. Veni, vidi, vici - I came, I saw, they conquered.

Union Social Eatery

Union Social Eatery is premium casual dining and socializing venue. It is an upbeat urban environment with a comfortable suburban approachability. It offers a comfortable, relaxed ambiance, food that is made fresh daily and a focus on treating every guest as a neighbourhood regular.

Reviewed By John B - Toronto, Canada

Regardless of your tastes you're likely to find something to eat at Union Social. The menu is extensive (almost too much to choose from) with options ranging from Tex-Mex, Indian, American (thing of burgers) and even the rather bizarre (naan wrapped Philly Cheesesteak sandwich). I gave the Chicken Vindaloo a try and it was quite good - plenty of chicken, freshly made naan and perfectly cooked rice. It was lacking a bit on the spiciness. The service was quick, the dining room comfortable if a little on the noisy side.

Papa Giuseppe's Pizza & Pints

We have been a local favourite in the community since we opened in March 2011. We offer traditional Italian food in a cozy Italian-like setting either inside or on our beautiful patio. There’s no better place to enjoy fresh hot pizza from our Moretti Forni stone oven and sipping refreshing house-made sangrias. We offer a variety of classic pizzas and pastas as well as a wide selection of antipasto’s. Of course, no meal is complete without good friends, family and nice bottle of vino.
