Oakville and Burlington Make Canada’s 100 Most Romantic Restaurants List
We believe Oakville and Burlington have some legit food gems.
And we go there - often - even when we could dine in Toronto and Hamilton.
Turns out we're not the only ones who think the west side is the best side.
Two popular local restaurants have made a very exciting list.
OpenTable (best known for providing online restaurant reservations services) announced Canada’s 100 Most Romantic Restaurants for 2018 on Feb. 1.
These awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 500,000 restaurant reviews submitted by verified OpenTable diners for more than 2,000 restaurants in Canada, according to the company.
Cucci Ristorante located in Bronte along Jones St. just north of Lakeshore, has made the cut.
But that’s not all.
The 100 Most Romantic list features restaurants from 46 cities across nine provinces.
Ontario is the province with the most restaurants with 40 establishments, followed by Alberta with 20, British Columbia with 14 and Quebec with 13.
Rounding out the list are restaurants from Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
The Niagara region rules in romance with 12 of Canada’s most romantic restaurants, reinforcing its reputation as the honeymoon capital of the world.
The list includes celebrated romantic spots such as Seasons in the Park with its stunning panoramic view of Vancouver’s skyline, Montreal’s French classic Restaurant Le Continental and the charming Inn on the Twenty.
In addition to ambiance, Canadians also favour particular cuisines for their romantic dinners. Steakhouses and Italian restaurants were our top choices while Canadian, Continental and French cuisines were also popular.
