I have found a new restaurant in Oakville that is fabulous...it is called "The Monk". This is a traditional high end Pub in the Glen Abbey/River Oaks area. This restaurant exudes an air of friendliness and you feel very comfortable from the time you enter the Pub. The Pub theme is aptly designed around a tasteful golf theme which provides a very warm ambience. Each area of the restaurant has its own plasma tv's and the rooms are centrally focused around a very majestic square oak bar. This bar carries about 5 domestic and 12 imported drafts on tap but don't forget about the value concious wine menu either!
I ate here recently myself and I am told that there are excellent monthly dinner features and on our last visit we were served a huge succulent parfait with 6 jumbo shrimp. The beef tenderloin was also amazing! The owners are Kevin and Rick and they have a phenominal chef by the name of Christopher White. Chris has been in the industry for over 10 years, working in a mix of private clubs and hotels. Chris has been with the National Ballet School in Toronto, spent the last two years with clublink at Eagle Ridge Golf Club.
For a tasteful and reasonably priced meal...try the Stout Monk at 478 Dundas Street W., Oakville, Ontario. For reservations please call 905-257-4004.
