Exquisite food + gracious service + stylish décor = dining at Rundles. A truly special event that combines spectacular flavours and an art-filled yet minimalistic environment. Have been fortunate to dine there twice over the past two years and am looking very forward to next...More

Attractive dining room with superior menu, service and quality tasteful food. Current chef and owner retiring September 2017. Hoping to sell this unique location to a worthy successor.

This gem of a restaurant is a portal to France. The eating environment is an ode to Mies Van De Rho modernism. Food was breathtaking. You owe it to yourself to eat here. Last season to enjoy too.

If you have money to spend and do not care about the quantity of food provided, maybe okay. But if you're looking for more, GOOD FOOD at a decent price, there are plenty of other Stratford Restaurants to choose from. They have also very publicly...More

Description
(41st SEASON OF RUNDLES: MAY 26 TO SEPTEMBER 23, 2017.) "On the bank of the River Avon, Rundles is an idyllic spot for pre-theatre dining in Stratford. The room, all grey cement and pale wood, feels like a Mies van der Rohe-designed spa. Chef Neil Baxter, who's been head chef since 1981, has a flair for the dramatic, in a good way. The tender poached lobster with salmon roe, cubed cucumber, yuzu jelly and dill oil sparkles like a mosaic of multicoloured sea glass and tastes bright and clean. Flawless panfried rib-eye showcases classic training and finesse. At the end of the meal, the server suggests "the famous lemon tart." The bruleed concoction, studded with toasted pistachios and sided with smooth orange sorbet, lives up to its recommendation." (Toronto Life) Pre-theatre seating times: 5, 5:15, 5:30, 5:45, or 6 pm. Late dinner seating available after. Closed: Monday.
