You Can Have Dinner Next To A Stunning Waterfall Near Toronto This Fall

Dinner by a waterfall is about as romantic as it gets, so if you’re looking for sweet fall date spots in Ontario then Ancaster Mill needs to be on your radar. 

Located roughly one hour from Toronto in Ancaster, Ontario, this historic mill sits on the edge of a picturesque creek where Ancastrians have been milling since 1792. 

Whether you’re inside the dining room or outside on their verdant patio, you’ll be able to gaze at the waterfall while you indulge in a simple selection of seasonal meals made from local ingredients.

The menu focuses on fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients and currently features salmon, steak, and pasta.

Prices for entrees range from $21 to $42.

One thing you can't slap a price tag on, however, is the beautiful atmosphere.

The spot looks so magical that it's definitely worth the road trip.
