We stopped in twice for a night cap after sightseeing and dinner. Large open space with very friendly Irish barkeeps. Great selection of beers and spirits. Good tunes on the sound system.

Love the relaxed atmosphere here. It's casual without being rough around the edges. The food was great, I loved the bangers and mash but fish and chips are also a good choice.

Wonderful bartenders, good food and beer selection. This place is right across the street from the Hotel Victoria where I stayed and it was convenient for a bite and a brew.

I have been to the Irish Embassy quite a few times over the years while visiting Toronto. Generally it is always for drinks, however this last trip, we decided to go for lunch. The lunch menu was tiny with limited choices, and both of us were less than impressed with our meals. The service was great as always, we just... More
