I decided to try this restaurant because the online menu looked interesting. We both ordered the Arctic Char with Pineapple/Mango Salsa which was one of the daily specials. The "salsa" and the fiddleheads were the best parts of the meal. The fish was dry and there wasn't enough "salsa" to go around. The risotto was gluey. The room is nice enough, but it was warm and very noisy. I can think of other local restaurants at a similar price point with much better food and atmosphere..

I don't think I will ever go back to this restaurant. My lunch was terrible. I had their celery soup which tasted worse than canned soup and a croquette which was cold inside. The service was unbelievably slow, and the waitress never once checked in. We finally had to flag her down to pay the bill.

The food was delicious, and the restaurant features early bird choices for dinner. Definitely try their soups.

During a recent first trip to Burlington we found the West Plains Bistro by mistake. We normally don't go to Bistros, but were hungry and just turned in by chance. During the five days we were in Canada, this turned out to be the best food we ate during our trip.
A nice selection of food to choose from. Ours was well prepared and presented. The atmosphere was charming, as well as the server and owner. I wish we lived there, as we would become routine customers. If you are ever in Burlington, ON, make sure you visit this wonderful location.
