5 star Despite the menu being daunting and a little confusing the staff was helpful in explaining it - and it was delish, so much variety and flavours we were stuffed. Bananarama dessert was the bomb!

This place was great. The entertainment, atmosphere and food was a nice departure from the standard corporate dining experience in restaurants today. It is quite quaint, little noisy and rough around the edges but that's what made it great. Understand fondue before going, it's not a quick menu table! Staff and owner were their for your experience, not the cheque. Will definitely return.

5 star rating What a great night! My husband surprised me with a date night sans children. We absolutely loved this place:) So fun and eclectic! The service was great and Paul, the owner was wonderful!! We have been to the melting pot in the States numerous times so it was exciting to find a local spot that provides a high quality fondue experience but with a more relaxed, fun atmosphere! The live music was AWESOME! All in all, I was sad to read some of these reviews because it really was a great night out and we'll definitely be back!! ...in fact, we even bought a giftcard to give as a gift :) would definitely recommend!!! If you get the 4 course- you will not even come close to finishing....but it is worth the effort!!!! :)

5 star rating Our anniversary dinner here was amazing! The eclectic decor is a favourite of ours and the server we had had an amazing attitude. It was a pleasure to meet the owner and we were delighted be live music (a beautiful accordion session and an acoustic guitar) while we dined and the menu was diverse. They were great in accommodating my gluten free diet and it was so much fun to make the fondu and different dishes right at our own table. Bar selection is good; we will for sure be back soon!


Harumi LaRose
5 star rating  It was such a enjoyable dinner. I like traditional cheese fondue, but we tried their unique Mexican style this time and It was surprisingly good and we loved the harmony of cheddar, salsa and jalapeños. Chocolate fondue with dark and white chocolate was amazing! We live in Toronto, but will definitely revisit there!

Dinner was very good. The menu was confusing but the waitress explained it well. The food was plentiful. The fondue was good and we also liked the grill option. We prefer the very thin sliced fondue beef, which isn't offered here. The selection of things to dio in the chocolate was amazing. A fun family outing.

Fun and different date night experience. Restaurant is cramped and server can only reach part of the table so you have to do some of the work also. Good variety of choices.

Amazing food, the atmosphere is cozy and catered to you with it being a smaller place. The staff seem very friendly and eager to make the experience wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant for an amazing date idea!


Danielle J. Barrie, ON — 5 star
This place is exactly like the name - Fun! If you are up for a unique experience that is fun and different then this is the place for you. Great concept- a fondue place where you can try a bunch of new things- cheese, oil and chocolate fondue. A great mix of food! However, we had some uptight people sitting across from us when we were eating who clearly did not enjoy the place - I have heard the comment - I could just get a steak up the road for cheaper. If that's your idea of a good time- then go there! This is not the place for you if you like traditional, typical food. But if you are willing to be a little patient and adventurous - you will enjoy it!

As a firm believer that life is meant to be an adventure, this was one of the most fun restaurants I have been to. It was more than just going out for a bite to eat, it was an entire evening, including entertainment, so never a dull moment. It was so refreshing to be able to spend time, and not be handed the bill before you've even finished your supper. The staff were fun and friendly, and interactive with guests in a good way. Our waiter even had the chef bring out samples of salad dressing for me to taste, as I am a super picky eater. They really care about their customers. Thanks, Mack, Torrin, and Paul for a great evening.

Andrea Alden
4 Star Rating  What an experience. The place is cozy and you should make a reservation because it's not a fast dining place. This restaurant is a sensory experience. The menu is confusing so let them explain it to you. We got a 4 course meal for 40 (each) which included a salad, two cheese fondues with veggies and bread, an oil and a broth fondue where you grill your own meat then either fry/tempura or boil in a flavorful broth, and finally a chocolate fondue. We. Were. Stuffed! Definitely worth the experience.

Kitchen was closed but they served us cheese and chocolate which was enjoyable. Very lovely atmoshpere and pleasant staff, friendly and inviting. Would go again!

Some reviews mention small portions, well I am NOT a small eater and I had to leave food behind on the final course. $40/person for a four course meal and a super fun experience is pretty reasonable, imo. 10/10 would recommend.

We went on a Sunday night, which was very quiet. Our server was excellent, didn’t catch her name! It is obvious they are very new and clearly need the summer to truly excel! A little pricy but the server said that they sometimes they have live entertainment walk around the restaurant like a belly dancer, and even a physic! The interior is filled with tons of weird and funny things to look at so that was kind of interesting and different which is always good for Barrie!! Definitely will go back to see the live entertainment and enjoy the flaming turtle chocolate fondue!!!

We went for a girls night out and I was pleasantly surprised by Fundoozies! We had never been and our server was kind enough to explain how the menu worked (yes it is a little confusing to look at but once she explained we understood no problem! We were told they are changing it so it is less confusing) The portions were good for 4 courses! We left satisfied but not stuffed and not hungry. I loved the selection, especially on the entrees, of the various proteins and the “pick 4” is great for people with food limitations. Everything was fresh! My girlfriend said she would have liked more to dip for the chocolate fondue as we had a lot of chocolate left over! (But as I said we were pleasantly satisfied). Our server was friendly and fun! She worked very hard as there seemed to be more cooks than servers and she looked like she was on her own with all the tables. The manager was helpful and came over to check on us and take any suggestions we had! Don’t go if you want a quick meal. We were there for 3 hours (which is common for fondue) but we laughed and ate and had a great time and we’re in no rush! The lights were a bit much with all the flashing throughout the entire meal (one friend had a bit of a headache by the end) but that is the worst complaint we could come up with! As a new restaurant our expectations were definitely exceeded!

 

David Francis reviewed Fundoozies — 4 star

Funny how so many people can have such extremely different experiences, but I can safely say that when my wife and I went to Fundoozies, we had a good one.

The food for us was good quality, the service excellent, and we were so full after our lunch that neither of us ate dinner that night.

The biggest factor that might be a sticking point for some is the fact that besides the rice and sauce, you cook your own food. It was fun for us, but admittedly some people might wonder why bother with a restaurant, then.

I think the value lies in the presentation and quality of the food offered, which when we went (the beginning of January) was pretty good quality, and we were ultimately only charged about $35 for more than enough food. Had we gone to the Keg, for example, it would have been more money for less food. The cook even had their own signature dessert treat, which was fun.

All in all, a very interesting dining experience. I suggest everyone to try it once, and if possible, try over lunch, when they will be less busy.

 

Amanda Saunderson-Ree reviewed Fundoozies — 5 star

Had an amazing experience on a Friday evening with a girlfriend from out of town. Have been anxiously waiting to try this place, and sad I didn’t go until now! Staff was amazing, food was delicious and overall experience was something completely different then any other restaurant in Barrie. If you’re looking for a unique experience, have a couple of hours and enjoy good conversation over scrumptious food this is a place to check out. It would be awesome to see this place get busier and move to a larger location to accommodate bigger parties in the future, but to be honest I loved the small cozy atmosphere. Will definitely be back! Thanks for the great night, couldn’t have asked for a better girls night out!

  

Rachel L Renaud reviewed Fundoozies — 5 star

We stopped in on a spontaneous date night and were lucky enough to get a seats without a reservation. The experience was quaint and perfect for a date night.

As said in another review, come with an open mind! It is a very small local restaurant. You should be visiting to try something new and not to compare to big chain restaurants.

Notes: 1. There are only approx 8 tables that each seat 4 people (max capacity approx 32)

2. The tables are fixed and cannot be moved around to accommodate groups

3. Fondue is not a fast food experience so you should probably expect to be there 2-3 hours

4. The table would be pretty full with four ppl and fondue warming plates/grills are not mobile so pick a fork colour and grab a few then get ready to communicate with your table mates because you likely won’t be able to reach the second fondue pot

My only suggestions for improvement would be to reduce the price point ($25pp) as it is currently a bit pricy ($45pp), and ensure the dips for each course are ready to go before starting the fondue melting process as the pots heat up quickly.

I love the concept and would love to see this small business expand to a bigger facility to maximize table turnover and reduce price point - even if that means a location off the main strip

Went to Fundoozies today on a whim, didn't even know it existed and I was pleasantly surprised with the experience!!! The food was delicious and the service was great! All of the staff were super friendly and ensured we were taken care of during our visit! The portion sizes were great (unlimited bread was a nice touch)! A great lunch with lots of laughs!

Angela Hanson reviewed Fundoozies — 4 star

Really enjoyed our lunch. Thought it was great value for 3 courses. We would have spent $30-$40 for 2 at a good burger place or chain restaurant anyways and supporting a local restaurant. Just the right amount of food. They just opened so ironing out the details but staff are very attentive and friendly. Met the owner and couldn't do enough to please everyone. Could see he is great with his staff. We will definitely be returning...a great social restaurant with great tunes and atmosphere. Nice to hae somthing unique an who doesn't like fondue!!!

The place is small and overestimating, but there is so much to look at that it is definitely a conversation starter! The staff is friendly and kind! They were very personable and willing to joke around. It felt more relaxed and not so uptight like other restaurants! I would go back anytime. So many vegan options and adaptability for me with my carnivore friends. I appreciate everything so much. It was incredible to be able to sit down to a nice meal with friends and actually have delicious options to enjoy myself.

The restaurant was small with great atmosphere and the food was top notch! It was our 1st visit and navigating the extensive menu seemed overwhelming. Our server was very helpful, enthusiastic, patient & walked us through the choices, which made it easy to understand. The food was full of flavour & the dining experience was unique & lots of fun. We would recommend to our friends & family. Cooking tables are limited to 4 people but larger groups can sit at multiple tables of 4.

Our server was very good. As well as the food. It was a fun atmosphere. Only a couple of minor things. Unfortunatley only one of our burners on our table was working. They did try to get hot plates but neither of them worked or knew how to work them. Introduction to the meal and how things worked was also well done. Fun date night with my husband
