If you're a "foody" and haven't tried Cafe Dario, you must give it a try. For $39.99 you get a five course dinner. First you choose from a line-up of appetizers, next you're served the soup of the day, and then a salad of the day. Next you can choose from an array of entres which could be a steak,... More

This little restaurant was recommended by some local friends. We went for dinner and were very satisfied. The set price meal offers a good variety to suit most tastes. The service was excellent, the pace of dinner was relaxed, and the portions were perfect. Excellent food! Don't be deceived by the neighborhood, this place is worth going!

A great little find...will definitely return. Enjoyed the fixed price dinner which included an appetizer, soup, salad, entree and a tasty little dessert. I had the escargot to start which was very flavourful, followed by a very tasty soup. An interesting presentation for a salad which was field greens wrapped tightly in a roll wrapped with cucumber, with a blackberry... More

I love going to this restaurant. As usual, Dario combines an artistic blend to make his meals taste wonderful. I loved the cream of mushroom soup with cinnamon and my main course of beef tenderloin with chimichurri was spot on. For dessert, there was a watermelon slice drizzled with dark chocolate and cheese. I have never acquired a taste for... More

We went here for our anniversary and brought our 14 year old daughter with us. Appetizers where different but very good. My wife had cuttle fish, daughter had Colombian arepa and I had the escargot. A delicious beef vegetable soup followed and then a cucumber wrapped salad. I had the beef tenderloin which was the most tender and flavourful I... More

At some point in time, this was a house located in an industrial area. Now its bright yellow exterior marks it as a beacon for some very tasty fare. It is quite small inside so reservations could be in order. Parking is on the street or in the back if you are really lucky. The menu is prix-fixe giving you... More

I have been to Café Dario a number of times and usually for lunch. The food is always superb and the service is prompt and attentive. The chef creates a new menu daily; there is always a chicken dish, a fish or seafood dish, a game dish, a lamb dish and a pork dish. On our last visit my husband... More

From the prawn appetizer, watercress soup, ( one of the best soups i have ever tasted) to the main courses of pork tenderloin, lamb...everything for our group was prepared and cooked to perfection. Portion size ideal. Servers friendly and... More

Last Saturday my husband and I decided ( spur -of the -moment) to go out for dinner. Of course all of our usual haunts were booked!! Then we remembered an acquaintance who had raved about Cafe Dario and we were lucky enough to get a reservation for that evening. The venue is tucked into a residential area on Erin Street.... More

Cafe Dario's menu offers 5 course meals for $39.00. The menu changes, I was fortunate to go when venison was available. It was beautifully done, tender, and nicely seasoned. The baked escargot “El Diablo appetizer had a nice heat to it, but was not overpowering. We will definitely be back.
