This location is small, intimate and friendly. The food is Spanish based with lovely options and choices. A little bit formal and the staff are professional and very friendly. Great service too. Consider a reservation due to the small size.

I was brought to LaVinia for the first time for a birthday, and am already contemplating how quickly I can get back. This was some of the best Spanish food I've had, including a visit to Barcelona where we indulged in a few 'fancy' restaurants....More

Etobicoke
Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
