The Best Restaurants in Oakville

The Best Restaurants in Oakville

The best restaurants in Oakville can fuel a day of sightseeing, whether you prefer to explore the natural beauty of the lakeshore or to snoop the mansions on "millionaire's row." From casual to classy as can be, these places are sure to satisfy.

A quick day trip from Toronto, Oakville has a quaint downtown bordering Lake Ontario. Leafy and lush in summer, bedecked and bejewelled come the holidays, downtown Oakville is a place to wander, to gawk at heritage buildings, über-luxe cars and tranquil lakeside views.

Once you've worked up an appetite, hit up one of the best local eateries for a meal to remember. With so many stellar options to choose from, you might find yourself heading westward more than ever before.
