Had the 8oz burger with fries. The food was good and came quick. Guinness was good. Maybe it just tastes better at home but I would not recommend the legavulin.

I'll be very concise..... 09:00 pm.... Guiness on Draft.... Several Guiness on Draft.... Fish and Chips Platter.... Sit at the bar, chat it up with the locals or the visitors. The bartender was excellent. We chatted while I drank a few pints and had some of the best fish and chips ever. Worth a visit if your bored later in... More

We popped in for a drink and to rest our weary feet after a day of sight seeing in Toronto. This is a busy, buzzing bar that has a mix of tourists, suited and booted execs and locals. Friendly service with a good selection of beers / wines. Food looked tasty.

Walked past this pub earlier in the day and were intrigued by the name. We decided to go to see if it lived up to its name - we assumed friendly, Guinness and good food. Arrived to a nearly full pub. A bit of noise and chatter. The table was next to some high stools and looked crowded in but... More

This place was probably a banking hall. The acoustics are horrific and even normal conversation becomes shouting. A bank of tvs with sports add to the din. Friendly however with a great selection of Irish whiskeys. Try Tyrconnell or a Bushmillls malt.

We went for a casual business lunch and we had great service. The wait staff were very attentive but not overly in your face. We were given the time to have a good look at the menu and decide on the order. Delivery of the food was fast, portions and presentation were good and overall dining experience was very good....

The Irish Embassy is a high end pub. Its high ceilings and décor suggest that it may have previously been a bank. It has a great selection of beers and the food was solid good. The fish and chips was very good.

I made a reservation to meet a friend to celebrate her birthday and requested a quiet table out of the way where we could hear each other because the noise level is very high - but usually worth it when you consider the overall atmosphere and the experience - this did not happen. The hostess actually seated us apart from... More
