We enjoyed our time there. The quality of the food was outstanding and still affordable. Everything they serve is wrought in a beautiful way. Another big plus is that children will eat for free there.

Portico was the restaurant attached to our hotel in Toronto, Cambridge Suites, but there are also doors onto the street right in the centre of Toronto. The décor is very classy.
We had lunch with our friends when they dropped us off and dinner with relatives during our stay. Everyone was pleased with both the choice and quality of the food and the excellent service. I tried Whitefish as opposed to white fish which we get in England.
We also had breakfast each morning as part of our package. This was also good although the choice was not as wide as at the other hotels where we stayed due to lack of space.

Dined at Portico on first night in Toronto. Very pleasant surroundings, we did not realise that the restaurant was part of a hotel as tend to avoid this as it can make it pricy and lack atmosphere however we didn't need to worry. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance, the food is fantastic with great presentation and Rene was a wonderful host providing exceptional and very friendly service. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

It was highly rated and surprisingly quiet on a Friday night during TIFF. Service was cordial but could have been more attentive given how quiet the restaurant was. We all enjoyed our meals.

Wow. My friends told me this was a 4 star restaurant and boy, was it ever. Walked in off the street and was treated wonderfully. Had the special of the day which was arctic chair with some kind of salmon undeneath it. Deliciously prepared and the waitress was very warm, friendly as were the other staff. Bravo!
