Had a very nice dinner at our first time visit at the Harbour House. Great selection of Ontario craft draft beer. Woody, Canadiana decor and atmosphere. Friendly smiley staff. Well presented and tasty fare. Reasonably priced. Will return for sure!

Harbord House is a classic neighbourhood restaurant/watering hole. Here you'll find regulars that know each other and are always welcomed by the owner. I dropped by with a friend for an after dinner drink and wasn't disappointed. They have a great selection of beers on tap including many from local craft breweries. While we didn't order any food the menu... More

We trusted reviews on Trip Advisor when choosing our lunch destination today and we were not disappointed!! We shared the buffalo shrimp appetizer which was delicious, (we saw another table order the buffalo sauce on the side and I would recommend doing this so the shrimp stay crispy!). I had the jerk chicken mango salad and it was amazing. The... More

Very poor quality food. The worst burger in my memory. The salad had slices of avocado that were half rotten. When my wife complained the server said that the recent delivery were all like that. Very regretable.

This was originally a mainly student pub ('Rowers') that several years ago was upgraded to a gourmet pub. In addition to standard pub fare, there are a variety of more upscale daily specials, usually about 6. These are often both imaginative and tasty. There is also a wide selection of local and regional craft beers on tap. usually including some... More

Located near the university, this place offers great food at fair prices including a nice selection of craft beers. I had the Hobart Burger and it was fantastic! The service was good, and it was very busy with a great pub atmosphere with people of all ages. In fact, you might want to make a reservation if on s busier... More

One of my favourite restaurants in the city for sure! Food and service could not be better!! I recommend the french onion soup (best I have EVER had) and the mac-n-cheese -- but anything you order will be amazing!! Good spot if you are looking for affordable dining, good sized portions, good drinks and hearty food!! I JUST LOVE IT!!

It's a pub but it's also a place where nice people congregate. The chef is good and the dishes are skilfully made and artfully plated. There are many good beers on tap and their monthly cask offering. Prices are just a tad above moderate but the meal is well worth its cost. A great place for fine food and picking... More

The server was amazing, such a gentleman . Very bad food experience, where they did not let us pay the bill. It's all I can say...

I always like the casual feel of this place. It is conveniently located close to Spadina and a very popular place. It is a noisy place but that is because it is appropriate for chats with friends without a rushed service. Great staff, attentive. Servers will not bother you at all.The menu is small but it matches the casual spirit... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
