West Plains Bistro is a classic European style bistro that offers a taste of Paris in Burlington style. Using local, seasoned ingredients, the restaurant serves everything from steak to quiche for lunch. The dinner menu features exciting chef’s specials daily, along with other tantalizing menu items from a Filet Mignon to halibut fish and chips and more. The restaurant has an early bird menu that is served from 4pm – 5:30pm. The homemade soups offered by the restaurant have won awards and are famous among its patrons.

West Plains Bistro offers a unique dining experience with the décor theme oozing European-inspired charm. The wrought iron tables are adorned with stained-glass lamps and bouquets of fresh flowers, giving a vintage feel.

We went to West Plains Bistro on New Years Eve. The only tables available were at 4:30 pm. We were really pleasantly surprised. First, we were not hurried through our sitting. Second, the Early Bird Special was available. We had a delicious meal, with excellent food, great service, and inviting ambience. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The service and food were lovely. Slightly disappointed that they ran out of mussels on mussel Monday. Kind of my reason for going. Just means I have to go back.

The high top seating was very comfortable. We were not sure as we had only previously been seated in the dining room in a booth. Stephanie was a great server; attentive and pleasant without over the top pandering. The food was hot, tasty and well presented. Our table of six(6) were all impressed. The timing of the courses was also very good. We did not feel rushed at all. We will certainly be back.

Food was great. We didn't order any of the specials or popular dishes but went with the pickerel and lamb shank instead. Both were excellent. Don't sit next to the back door in the winter though, it's freezing!

This restaurant is one of our favourites. The quality of the food is consistently high and the service is exceptional........Thanks Laura. it is a cosy environment where you can eat and have a conversation without having to yell at your guests. The home made chicken liver pate appetizer is to die for. The daily specials are always worth a try and somehow never seem to repeat. All in all a great local treat.

Raised table seating by fireplace was a bit to warm and the light above the table to bright..which was corrected by shutting it off. Staff nicely added more candles!

I've been to this restaurant many times and have had good experiences. This recent visit was disappointing, specifically the service as it was woefully under staffed resulting in long service wait times. It seemed the waiter was trying his best despite having to wait on several tables. We decided to forego dessert because of the wait time.

West Plains Bistro is a hidden gem in Burlington.
We enjoyed a delicious meal with friends this past weekend. The food was delicious, perfect portions, and a really good variety of items on the menu.
Our waitress was just wonderful and so much fun.
We’ll definitely be back soon.

I had the pickerel dinner but unfortunately the potatoes were cold. I was very surprised as the fish and veggies were nicely arranged on top of them. Everything but the potatoes were hot.

Amazing as always! A trusted spot to dine as I am GF and they are so accommodating. Tried the wild rice bowl. It was delicious but maybe just a bit salty.
Will keep inviting friends to go with me to WPB!

What a rare find in little Aldershot!! Thought the online photos were nice and Menu had a few interesting offerings but when we arrived and saw the black tablecloths, lovely glassware and warm ambiance PLUS the ample dinner menu we were blown away!! LOVED the appetizers - bruschetta, escargot and Brie - only the battered cauliflower was a bit disappointing but everything else was perfect! Bonus moments included half-price appetizers on the Tuesday and a great bargain 3-course dinner for $30... creative salad, yummy salmon en croute and a TO DIE FOR coconut cream pie!!! What lovely service by Steph and Laura. This restaurant is a find - go and you won't be sorry!!!

Had a great time with friends, quaint enough but bankets and high tops, lighting too harsh on some, the washroom was not up to my standards of look, clean enough but some money could be spent there, i was a tad put off by the smell just before entering the restaurant as it had an extreme ripe fish smell.
