Oakville, Burlington Among Canada's 100 Best Restaurants for Outdoor Dining

You already know how much we dig the food across Oakville and Burlington.

Well, the only thing better than eating at a Halton restaurant is dining outdoors on a patio or terrace.

Turns out we’re not the only ones who think so.

A pair of Oakville and Burlington restaurants have made a very exciting list.

OpenTable (best known for providing online restaurant reservations services) released the 100 Best Restaurants for Outdoor Dining in Canada for 2018 on June 20.

Spencer’s at the Waterfront, located along Lakeshore, has made the list.

So did Harpers Landing, located along Cornwall Rd. near Chartwell Rd. in the Longo's plaza. (The patio is amaaaazing).
Ontario topped the list with 41 eateries, followed by B.C. with 30 and Alberta with 17.
Quebec (8) and Manitoba(4) are also represented.

“The longest day of the year marks open season on Canada’s patios. The option to enjoy food and drink in an al fresco setting makes the experience that much more memorable,” said OpenTable chief dining officer Caroline Potter.
“This list is a delicious resource for locals and travelers seeking to make the most of their summer eating adventures.”

The list includes a variety of different outdoor dining options, from the ocean view patio at Vancouver’s Teahouse in Stanley Park and the charming hidden back patio at Toronto’s Sidecar, to the relaxing lakeside patio at Wellington’sDrake Devonshire Inn.
The awards reflect the combined opinions of more than 550,000 restaurant reviews.
