We ate here two nights in a row. Not fine dining but great food and beer. Excellent service friendly and helpful. Recommend smoked duck salad, calamari and beet salad. A really good find that I am happy to highly recommend.

We were happily surprised with the friendly atmosphere, the good service, the selection and quality of the food. It seemed crowded when we arrived, but we were seated immediately. The service was excellent and the portions more than we could eat. The prices were reasonable....More

Very much a locals pub, but still welcoming to visitors. Relaxed but efficient and friendly service. Excellent food, with generous portions. we both had fish and chips which were excellent. However desserts were amazing and more than enough. Good value too

Good, upscale pub food. Great selection of local and international beers. Friendly staff, though it's often busy so you may have to wait.

Consistently excellent food. We have been going here for years (even when it was located next door). The chef often adds new twists to the menu but you can never go wrong with the baseball cut steak, calamari, or smoked salmon. Their servings are generous...More

This restaurant is in a nice neighborhood, the time we waited for our meal was worth it. Almost all customers order fish and chips. We decide to buy the fish and chips and the spinach salad with goat cheese both plates were amazing.

The food was really quite good. I had the steak and mushroom pie which came with creamy mashed potatoes and an excellent sauce. My partner had the chicken quesadillas, also good. He had asked for a salad but was given fries instead. The server offered...More

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
