Visited this quaint little restaurant and was more than impressed. The decor was authentically Balkan, and I really no longer felt like I was in Stoney Creek (or even Ontario). The staff was friendly and attentive, and even gave suggestions of where to visit in Serbia. And, most important, the food was superior. We had the Sopska Salad, Chicken Soup, Balkan Cheese Pie, Goulash, and Cevapi. Everything was delicious, and everything was freshly home cooked. Fantastic. I'll be back soon!

Whoever said "Don't judge a book by its cover." has never eaten at Etno's. What you see on the outside-- rundown and dismal --is exactly what the food tastes like. I was with a party of seven. Four of us ordered the goulash, which was simply three tiny pieces of beef swimming in gravy with a large lump of mashed potatoes. Campbell's Beef Stew has more appeal both in taste and appearance. I am not sure what or where Amy Kenny was eating when she reviewed this place for the Spectator in May 2015 and raved about this dish. It was obviously not Etno's. One of our party ordered the Karadjordjeva, which was veal rolled with a creamy cheese filling, which she said was absolutely indistinguishable in flavour and not appealing. Another ordered the trout which he said he could have prepared better on the banks of some lake with simply a frying pan and open fire. All of us walked out of there resolving never to return. I learned two valuable lessons--trust first impressions and don't trust newspaper reviews.

Hidden away on a quiet side street in a small strip mall in Hamilton is a family owned restaurant that provides a culinary taste of Serbia. The authentic decor and friendly atmosphere adds to the ambience, while home made bread and donuts, goulash and amazing meat platters provide an fantastic taste of Eastern European food. Well worth a visit.
