Just loved this place. Coffee was very aromatic. I could smell it as I entered the restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was very, very good. I only wish I had discovered this establishment earlier as I found out the owner was going to retire after 30 years in two weeks time.

I picked this restaurant for our anniversary dinner, and based on the reviews I was a little nervous. Many seemed positive, but in talking to people living in Peterborough, we got a "hmmm" kind of response. When we arrived at 1830 on a Saturday night, we were the only ones there. As we were lead to a table in the... More

Four of us had a spectacular dinner. The owner, Toby, is a marvellous host and chef. He opened up specially for us and then spoiled us greatly. Two of us enjoyed the scrumptious pork and mushrooms smothered in a delicious sauce. One had the Chicken Parmesan and loved it. The other had a special Vegetable Torte which featured a luscious...

I could not believe that this restaurant is rated so low on TripAdvisor. It really is the BEST place to eat in Peterborough. In fact, as FOODIES that have travelled extensively; this place sets the bar very, very high . I read the "terrible" reviews- one was written by someone who has never eaten there (and is under the misunderstanding... More

What can i say that would do chef Toby's food justice ?! Not enough. Check it out yourself but until you do... Goat cheese salad. So yummy Pineapple and crab salad. Divine. The pineapple amd seafood combo was amazing. Catfish and jambalaya with green beans . Extremely flavourful. Melt in your mouth. Chicken with white wine potatoes and bean. Again.... More

My wife and I have been here several times and still comment each time that this place should be called "Eclectic City Garden" rather than "Electric City Garden!" EVERYTHING about this place is quirky, starting with the decor and including the staff (in a wonderful way!). You'll find the menu -- which changes ALL the time -- is limited but... More

What a great experience, when we first enter we were not sure what to expect with the eclectic collection of life treasures, everything has a story, from the paintings on the wall to the food. Toby is an artist with a great mastery of his medium. The place comes off as quirky at first, but by the end of the... More

This is a delightful place to spend a cozy evening. I prefer it in winter than in summer for some reason. Chef Toby always pleases his devoted customers. He can do the loaves and fishes thing for even the weirdest dietary restrictions.

My partner and I are from Toronto but were visiting family in Peterborough and decided to try this place since it sounded different and my cousins had never been there. My boyfriend is a vegetarian and a picky eater, but we decided to see if it was really true that "picky eaters love Electric City Gardens." It was true. We... More
