During lent I researched the highly rated Savannah restaurants for seafood. Toucan Cafe was at the top of the list. This rating was well deserved. Shawn greeted us warmly and seated us in a nice intimate corner of a very festively decorated dining room. Erica, our waitress was the epitome of a professional server. She offered her opinions on the... More

What a great restaurant! Late lunch on a rainy day. Great service, friendly and quick. The vegetarian risotto was outstanding. My wife said the shrimp and grits was among the best she has ever had. Nice wine selection.

I always enjoy my frequent dining experiences at Toucan with friends and guests. Their menu offers many tasty dishes with lots of interesting seasonings to develop flavors within the various dishes. In addition, the servings are quite adequate in size, and the presentations are above average. Toucan has earned it's loyal following by being consistent and reasonably priced.

We wanted to find a little dinner place close to our hotel so we went looking for Toucan Cafe. We were pleasantly surprised when we found a wonderful restaurant behind another building.
