Need to Know … from Judge Josh Josephson: “Edulis uses superb ingredients to give diners a highly original and sophisticated take on rustic cuisine. It is one of the most pleasing restaurant experiences in Canada.”

John Placko, Culinary Director of Modern Culinary Academy, says: “This restaurant is worthy of my top score. Not only does it have friendly and efficient service, but the kitchen also accommodated the food allergy of my wife like a pro. The butter is worth going back for. There were numerous refreshments of the bread and butter. The tasting menu was outstanding in terms of contrast in temperatures, textures and techniques. The use of mushrooms is extraordinary. The unique beverage offerings is a nice touch to this spectacular restaurant.”

Slow food advocates David Kirkwood and Sarah Crawford say: “Perfect dining experiences can be one-offs, but at Edulis it's not unusual to enjoy the happy confluence of warm, personal hospitality, casual but expert service, creative and original cocktails and pairings, and outstanding Spanish-toned dishes. The word 'seasonal' has become one of those vague menu-speak words meaning nothing more than somehow relating to the season. Edulis’s five or seven seafood-focused courses are truly of their moment in time within the growing and foraging season — what's freshest and available on a given day or week. Edulis is a passion project and chefs/owners Michael Caballo and Tobey Nemeth go the distance to source and procure excellent and coveted ingredients. They aim high, take chances and deliver consistently in a most delightful way.”
