From the moment you enter till the time you leave, you will know that Il Postino is someplace special. Not only do they feature a plentiful selection of craveable, family-friendly Italian meals like Margherita pizza, rigatoni ragu, and lamb chops with fried rosemary potatoes, but Il Postino is also known for their impeccable service.

Whether you sit inside or choose to dine on their impossibly picturesque patio, the ambiance of this European style boutique restaurant will linger in your thoughts, much like the finish of a good red wine, which also happens to be magnificent here, by the way.

The wide selection of both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes makes Ambiyan a must-visit destination for those with a love of Northern Indian food.

All of the classic favourites are here at their very best, including spicy vindaloos, fragrant curries, and quite possibly one of the best versions of butter chicken in the GTA. However, you may also discover new, unforgettable flavours. Sample dishes like garlic, ginger and coconut-infused beef chettinad, and their famous navratan korma, which is a fragrant bouquet of seasonal vegetables bathed in a decadent cashew cream sauce.

There are 140 years of history behind the walls of this Main Street icon. Originally built in 1872, Old Country Inn was formerly a physician’s residence. Now, it is home to some of the region’s best Austrian, German, and Hungarian cuisine.

Traditional favourites like sauerbraten, spaetzle, and schnitzel can all be found here, along with sweet delights like peach melba and a variety of crepes. However, Old Country Inn is best known for their highly photogenic House Platter. This is an Instagram-worthy platter laden with heaping portions of steaming schnitzel, juicy pork loin and plump sausages, all served with generous helpings of home fries and sour kraut. Definitely add a bottle of regional imported beer to slake while you enjoy this hearty, well-rounded meal.

Of course, this is merely a sample of the restaurants to be found along this charming street in the heart of Markham, Ontario. There are many other places to stop for coffee, indulge in a slice of pizza or even an ice cream cone.

Thankfully, Main Street Unionville is a pedestrian-centric space, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity for a stroll following your meal.
