  • Opening on Valentine's Day this year, my love for Truffles has not wavered. This gorgeous bistro keeps surprising with something special on each visit. Today we are trying their brand new breakfast offering. The salmon scramble is no doubt a winner. Smoked Atlantic salmon, dill cream cheese, semi dried tomatoes & spring onion emulsion. Just one of the incredible breakfast dishes on chef Lance's menu. Cannot wait to return for more truffle inspired delicacies!

  • First visit to Truffles on the Park. Service was great however food was very average. Mushroom risotto was bland and served cold and the aperol spritz was heavily diluted with soda water. The food was mediocre but I would have returned for the great ambience and lovely views of the park if it wasn’t for the unethical practices of the restaurant management. When the bill came, it included a conservation fee which was not explained either on the bill or disclosed previously. When we asked the manager he said the restaurant collects fees to help conserve the park. I responded by saying that we that the municipality should maintain the park to which he responded that the fee was optional. How can an optional fee be included on the bill without informing the customer? When questioned about this the manager said that they didn’t inform people because they are just trying to get people to help conserve the park. I find this practice to be very unethical and dishonest because if the intention was good, the restaurant could have either asked for donations or asked for a fixed fee instead of basing the fee on a percentage of the total value of the bill. We were charged 2% of our spend, but when I read other reviews on Google, the reviewer commented that “the restaurant collects 6% conservation fees”. Something does not seem right especially as there is no proof that the fees do in fact go towards the conservation of the park. Needless to say I will not be a patron at this establishment any more.
