great atmosphere,esp on hockey night. Walking distance to several hotels. Found portions smaller, for the price ..maybe because its downtown Toronto. But, steak fajitas were very tasty.

Restaurant/bar is ideal for food prior to events at Scotiabank Arena or Rogers centre as it’s only a few minutes walk to either. Loads of screens showing various sports. Steaks are first class, cooked perfectly. The service is also brilliant and you get looked after...More
