the room was a little too
the room was a little too noisy to talk comfortably, but it was just the enthusiasm of the diners -- no loud music.
The service was excellent, really excellent. Everyone greeted us with sincere warmth and genuine smiles and were helpful but non-intrusive. I would like to hire all of them myself.

One of the best meals we've had out in years! The food was wonderful, and the service was impeccable. We'll definitely be back. Highly recommend the house-made pate as an appetizer and the passionfruit flan for dessert.

Best Small Bistro on West Side
We have enjoyed meals here 3 times in as many months. Everyone (lunch and dinner) has been wonderful. Well executed and interesting menu. Service to match. Keep up the good work!

My husband ordered the three-course
My husband ordered the three-course dinner with mixed green salad (okay), green pea and leek risotto (good) and a chocolate sour cherry roulade (very good) while I enjoyed the specialty of the day, a delicious bouillabaisse. We had been disappointed on our last visit about a year ago, but our meal this time restored our faith in Trafalgars as a true neighbourhood gem.

A lovely evening
We were three friends out for dinner looking for great food and an opportunity to catch up. The restaurant was lovely, quiet, excellent service and food! We will definitely be back!

Terrific Food and Awesome Service
Enjoyed a terrific 3-course dinner with a companion at Trafalgars Bistro recently. The food was excellent as expected -- my risotto was rich, creamy, and thoroughly aromatic, and my companion's mussels were very fresh. But the highlight of the evening had to be the garlic fries. It may sound dumb, but aside from the dessert, the garlic fries had to be my favourite dish of the evening. It was deep fried just right, with no trace of being oily or greasy. But more importantly, the garlic flavouring just gave it a unique taste and aroma that is difficult to find elsewhere.
On the other hand, I was surprised that the restaurant charged us $1 for a hot water. Yes, I know it is "only" a dollar. But really? For hot water?

Trafalgar 's was consistent in its service and food quality. A very enjoyable experience as usual!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had placed a special order for a birthday cake for my wife, and the order got lost. However, this was more than made up with by the super dessert menu which she enjoyed even more.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Trafalgars has always been a good reliable restaurant. Their food is delicious, flavorful, and plated well. Their service is excellent. Their desserts are "to die for".

Fabulous food and lovely ambience
I've been going to Trafalgar's since it opened and have never been disappointed.
as well as going with friends and family, I love taking "out of towners". They're always impressed by the innovative, locally grown food and the comfortable room. As well, the service is always very good. I cannot recommend this little restaurant enough!

Sat outside in a kind of arbor, surrounded by grape vines. This was on the Trafalgar side of the building; it may have been noisy at the front. The food was excellent - large choice, esp of desserts, and superb quality. Good choice of Scotch malts and wine. Service was some of the best we've had in Canada; friendly and intelligent waitress who made sure we had everything we needed and who asked the right questions, but who left us to our own devices as long as we wanted. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

I was treating my good friend for her 50th birthday. It was a surprise and she was thrilled with the venue. I pre-ordered cake with a candle ahead of time through Opentable. I was so happy that I didn't have to remind the waitress. Overall a lovely afternoon.

First time at Trafalgar's
Excellent food, great service and reasonable prices!

A New "Favourite!"
Both the menu and decor were inviting. The service was wonderful. There was plenty of choice on the menu, including set meal options. Each dish was elegantly presented and delicious. Portion sizes were perfect. The desserts were heavenly. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will no doubt be returning - sooner rather than later. We are only sorry we haven't discovered this magical spot years ago!

Visited this place in Aug 2013 and we loved it. I ordered the steelhead trout and my wife had the halibut. Both fishes were prepared very well with great sides. The dessert selection was vast and the ones we selected were tasty. Would definitely return.

After many years eating at Trafalgars I have never had less than a good meal, and usually they are superb.

Great for lunch dining experience
Went for a relaxing, delicious lunch....mission accomplished ! Service appropriately attentive, background music
truly 'background' music and not blowing my ears off...and nice selections of music. Food delicious and served promptly ....but
not rushed ....and hot. Overall great and plan to go there again soon.

Great Neighbourhood Spot
Great seasonal and locally sourced food. Wonderful neighbourhood restaurant rivalling the kitchens of some of the better restaurants in the city. The three course tasting menu is a good value for the quality of the food, and the portions are substantial

Nice neighborhood bistro
Fine food without the downtown parking hassle and rude attitude.
This is a wonderful place to meet friends at.

Wonderful food, attentive staff, intimate and lovely room. Desserts outstanding
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Neighbourhood Gem Indeed
Having just moved to this area, this was my first visit and we'll certainly be back to try other dishes. Two of us had the lamb burger & truffle fries - both delicious. The other person in our party had two entrees and raved about the sweet pea & ham soup. The dessert menu was tempting and all decided our next visit would be an entree & dessert meal! Service was well timed and friendly. The welcome warm and genuine. We loved the fact that the music was quiet and non-intrusive!

South Kits Charmer
A delightful, well known, neighborhood treasure for 19 years paired with the joy that is Sweet Obsessions. Catering available, too!

Great Food! Great Service!
We were treated with personal care from the moment we stepped in the door. The food was fabulous and served on time and hot. A super evening that we'll be duplicating in future. Thanks for the wonderful time!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
My main impression was of attention to detail. Delicate flavours and well- balanced seasonings. I regret we did not have time for dessert as they looked outstanding.

A Pleasant Surprise
A birthday lunch and we could not have found a better place! The food was excellent and the service friendly and professional.
A special of shrimp/crab cakes with poached eggs and hollandaise was delicious as was the lamb burger, salade nicoise, and tuna club with fresh tuna. A shared white chocolate cake with raspberries was also very nice. A French 75 drink to start was different and very nice to have something other than the usual offerings. All in all, a very nice little bistro and we definitely will be back! The pig evening on the 20th October is sure to be sold out!
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very nice but for the noise.
I had forgotten how noisy T.B. can be. Had I remembered, we would not have booked there. The noise level makes it well nigh impossible to converse.
Otherwise, no complaints. Very reliable.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice surprise
Deciding to venture out of the West End for a change, Trafalgars Bistro was a very pleasant surprise. Both entrees were delicious (steelhead and chicken) as was the shared appetizer and dessert. We'll definitely go back there again.

We had a delicious meal and the service was excellent. Our out-of-town guests were really delighted with the restaurant
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went there for a birthday brunch that included decadent desserts. Our server was wonderful. She described the desserts in a way that made our mouths water. The owner came over to see how we were doing. I was the host. My guests complimented me on an excellent choice for the celebration.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
While there was no turkey on the menu, what we did enjoy were deliciously prepared specials that only made us more thankful for the opportunity to dine there and make this establishment a special part of a special day. Service was attentive but not disruptive. Thank you for a wonderful Thanksgiving.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
fresh and friendly
The food is great - local organic ingredients, good variety on the menu. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The desserts are remarkable. We needed to have a business conversation and found the dining room very noisy.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Neighborhood Restaurant
I have been here several times and the food etc. is consistently good. It was very crowded and as it's not a large space it was quite noisy. This had not been my experience in past visits. Perhaps the Saturday evening crowd is more boisterous than midweek.

Brunch on Sat Oct 26
I met 3 friends for brunch. We were all happy with our food and service.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will not disappoint
Lunch at the Bistro was excellent. Service was superb. The mushroom soup was thick and creamy with lots of flavor. Poached eggs and smoked salmon were perfect. I did not particularly like the potato cake base as it seemed very heavy for the rest of the dish. The tables are quite close together so there was a bit of noise from the conversations around us, but it was not overwhelming, I would return and recommend this restaurant to others.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had brunch at Trafalgars Bistro. The was surprisingly good. It would have been nice if the waiter was more attentive. It took a while before we could get our bill to pay.

Good value and great food
We were looking for a restaurant on a rainy weekend afternoon. I had never been to Trafalgar's and decided to give it a try. It was just what we were looking for - fast service, good food, nice ambiance and good value for the money.
