Guy, this is a serious food experience. The Algonquin College students showcase the art of culinary here. The environment is modern and stylish. The staff students were nice and attentive. The girl staff even offered to take a family photo for us. The food was impressively well prepared and presented. Overall, we had an awesome wonderful meal.

The food variety is always a pleasant surprise, there is always something new on the menu of the day. The food is always well prepared, presented and served. Bear in mind, there are professionals in the making (students) who are serving, so sometimes you may have a bit nervous server or a shaky hand trying to serve you. But they... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. We had dinner here last Saturday. The place was not very busy which was great. Food was great and the service was fine.

This is a teaching restaurant, and they do events, so it's important to check their schedule and make reservation before you go. Normally their food is great. You pay a fixed fare for a 4-couse-meal for dinner or 3-coure-meal for lunch. The cost is inexpensive for what you get, and the menu changes all the time. You can also ask... More

Thought we would try a restaurant that was new to us. We chose Restaurant International - part of the Algonquin College food services programme. There is a free car parking lot immediately in front of the restaurant's entrance. Reservations are necessary. We were led immediately to our table and presented with a fixed price menu $16.00 for 3 courses. The... More

We paid a visit in April 2016 with friends as part of a fund-raising event. The restaurant is actually part of Algonquin College for students studying in the field. So, we kept that in mind. We were served a chicken breast, that was overcooked and a bit dry, but still tasty. So, we did not really make a point with... More

We were greeted with genuine warmth. the hostess immediately offered to take our coats and hang up the same. The dinner was nothing short of excellent. My wife asked for the boar and it was well presented and cooked to her... More

For my anniversary dinner we decided to eat here, as my husband has been wanting to try it. Plus, I love the idea of supporting the students and their endeavour to learn. The evening started off great, I had a tempura which was so well flavored and the batter was light and fluffy – dare I say it was nearly... More

As a teaching arm of the Hospitality Program of Algonquin College, it provides folks with an interesting and ever-changing range of choices of meals in a relaxing atmosphere, where the student chefs and servers do their very best to make your dining experience a rewarding one. The menu choices often provide the diner with an opportunity to sample entrees (such... More

Students of the Algonquin College School of Hospitality get to practice their skills and you get great value for your money. You get a choice of a four-course meal and, if you'd like, to pair it with a selection of fine Ontario wines all served by well-meaning young people that a chance to display their culinary skills and to practice...
