Here are the 5 hottest restaurants in Halton for the week of Apr. 28 to May 4 based on the amount of organic page views and searches these restaurants received on inhalton.com.

5. Table 34


This Lakeshore Rd. restobar has an enviable view across from Spencer Smith Park, paired with a modern, upscale atmosphere. Their menu - created by Chef Zee - offers everything from calamari to chorizo sausage and shrimp puff pastry to Moroccan spiced duck breast. Table 34’s charcuterie board, or Mezza Plate, is superb. It features westphalian ham, Csabi sausage, provolone, gherkins, smoked almonds, grapes, cherry tomatoes, baba ghanouj, and bread. In other words, a perfect share platter!

4. Mythos Greek


The Mousaka is marvellous! This hidden gem on Fairview St. will have your date smiling and stroking your hand while gazing into your eyes with wonder. Dishes include all the usual suspects, such as oregano, mint, garlic, onion, dill and bay laurel leaves, which pack so much flavour. From grilled lamb (Paidakia) to breaded, tender lean pork cutlets (Lemonati Kotoleta), there’s plenty to choose from. Executive chef Andreas Yerondais will make you feel as though you’ve been whisked away to the beautiful blue waters in the Mediterranean. Service is downright impeccable, which naturally has us saying opa! We just wish it stayed open later (Mythos also closes at 10 p.m.).

3. Goodfellas


The popular Streetsville Neapolitan wood oven pizza restaurant that’s known for its rustic-chic interior, homemade southern Italian dishes and exclusive Italian wine selection, officially opened its doors in Halton at 22 Ontario St. S., across from the Milton Mall, in a former Re/Max realty office. Finally. It’s an ideal place to break all of your new year’s resolutions. With authentic Neapolitan wood oven pizza, the menu focuses on authentic Southern Italian cuisine. A variety of legit Napoletana pizzas include the Margherita Pizza, topped with San Marzano sauce, mozzarella fiore di latte, fresh basil and extra virgin olive oil. You’ll also find Romano pizza and homemade pastas, all made in-house. The Maccheroni alla Carbonara pasta dish includes pancetta, egg yolks, pecorino romano, and black pepper. The mozzarella di bufala, and parmigiano-reggiano cheeses are some of the ingredients they use imported directly from Italy. Goodfellas boasts an extensive Italian wine selection which pairs beautifully with great eats.

2. J.A.C’s Bistro


This adorable Kerr Village gem offers up great eats and the menu features a hybrid of rustic Italian and French cuisine; the finest seasonal produce is used. The Wild Mushroom Salad, for example, is a delicious blend of sauteed mushrooms and roasted sweet pearl onions over baby arugula. It’s topped with aged feta then drizzled with a honey balsamic dressing. Scrumptious! Jail Island Salmon is another popular dish, with lemon fennel crusted salmon over a marbled potato gratin with butter poached asparagus and Dijon cream sauce. The wraps - including smoked chicken, smoked salmon, grilled vegetable - are delightfully light and filling. Dessert options include the Salted Caramel Cheesecake (made in-house). Ours was drizzled with caramel and wasn’t overly rich or sweet. It came served with berries and fresh vanilla whipped cream. Needless to say, the cheesecake was polished off rather quickly!

1. Bru Restaurant


If you’re looking for a bonafide hipster hot spot in Oakville, Bru is your go-to resto. The downtown joint hits every mark when it comes to on-trend dining: a rustic interior, an enviable craft beer selection (the best of its kind in the town, in fact) and a menu full of modern pub fare (some of which is gluten-free and vegan-friendly). Plus, they’re proud of the fact there’s no Wi-Fi (go ahead and act like it’s 1995 … talk to each other, the sign urges). Nestled along ‘restaurant row’, Bru supports more than 15 Ontario breweries and offers a variety of on-tap and bottled brews. As far as food goes, the diverse menu is satisfying and unique. If you’re in the mood for something tangy and light, try the flatbread, featuring roasted butternut squash, whipped ricotta cream, onion jam, and fine herbs. (I legit ate the whole platter).
