If the company you work for in Mississauga is doing well, the likelihood of having a company dinner, lunch or Christmas party at these places is high.
These are the places you check out once in a blue moon for a very special occasion with your significant other. Or maybe you’re just a baller and can afford to eat at these places on the regular.
Either way, these places are expensive and they pamper and feed you like no other restos in the city.
Here are the top five most expensive restaurants in Mississauga:
It’s an iconic Mississauga landmark and a Streetsville gem that’s always been known for its signature Caesar salad. Fast-forward 40 years, Alexander Lassos has taken the reins and used his lifetime of experience in the family business to develop a completely new dining concept. Approximately $1.2 million dollars of renos later, Alexander’s dream restaurant is complete: Cagneys Restaurant and Winebar. One of the main features in this 5,500 sq. ft. space is a gorgeous floor-to-ceiling glass wine cellar that holds 500 bottles of hand-selected wines. Cagney’s menu focuses on local and seasonal ingredients, and includes a substantial appetizer section that boasts grilled octopus. Diners will also find risottos, pastas, gourmet burgers and healthy, gluten-free and vegetarian options. The chef and his team make the bread, desserts, fresh-cut fries, sauces and stocks in house.
Cagneys Seafood Platter For Two – $145.00
Cuban Lobster Tails, shrimp scampi, Alaskan king crab legs, grilled vegetables & choice of potato or rice. Served with warm drawn garlic butter
4 – Aristotles
Aristotles Fine Dining has been a Mississauga staple for over 20 years, specializing in steak and seafood. It’s the epitome of old-school fine dining with dim lighting, waiters decked out in formal black and white uniforms, Greek-inspired statues and large Greek columns. The resto also boasts a soft instrumental soundtrack.
The menu includes a wide variety of steak and seafood options, including Oysters Rockefeller, scallops, shrimp, lobster tail, crab legs, filet mignon and seafood platters.
We started with complimentary olives and pickles and a basket of crispy, butter soaked garlic bread that I will without a doubt have future cravings for.
We tried the Fisherman’s Plate, which included lobster tail, shrimp scampi, scallops, crab legs, long grain rice, broccoli and carrots. The dish is meant to serve one person, but it can easily serve two. The up-sized version of the Fisherman’s Plate contains the same elements plus filet mignon and is called Aristotle’s Platter for Two. My suggestion is to go hungry. Maybe visit after an intense HIIT workout session or for dinner on a day you skip breakfast and lunch.

3 – Zorro’s
Fresh pickles, olives and garlic bread are always a prelude to your meal. Zorro’s Steakhouse has been around since 1975, making it one of the best and most well known fine dining and steakhouse spots in Mississauga. Located just a few minutes from Pearson, Zorro’s Steakhouse is perfect for a romantic date, old-school business meeting or fabulous baller meal. The atmosphere is relaxed but elegant, letting you enjoy fine food in an environment that’s chic without being stuffy.
Zorro’s Platter for Two: $145.00
Crab legs, lobster tail, shrimp scampi, scallops, filet mignon and BBQ back ribs. Served with rice and surrounded by fresh vegetables
2 – La Castile
La Castile is located on Dundas East, just footsteps from the Etobicoke border. It’s a massive castle-like restaurant with flaming pots on the outside wall. Once you step in, you see how massive this place is, as it seats 240 people in a triple-tier dining room. The website’s description is most apt: “enormous chandeliers, huge cross beam ceiling timbers, massive wood railings and flowing stairways that lead to all dining levels combine to create a distinctive dining experience steeped in tradition.” You can feast with friends at a round table for eight or dine romantically at an intimate table for two. The food is also on point. For dinner, you can try the steak and lobster plate with broiled and hand-selected sirloin and lobster tails. Bonus: you are almost always guaranteed leftovers, as the portions are massive.
