Great selection of Belgium ales! I enjoyed three. Good food also. Being a vegetarian I ordered the ravioli. Respectable. I will be back

The cozy atmosphere and selection of tap beer was wonderful. However my food wasn't as advertised. I had the chicken flatbread and it was supposed to have artichoke and asiago sauce but it came without any sauce at all and was dry. Our server was downright rude and did the bare minimum. Recommend if you just want to grab a... More

We had high hopes going it, enjoyed the garage door open to get a cool breeze, they had an awesome beer selection but the service was lacking, if the wait staff doesn't write down orders then it should really be expected they can get them right and unfortunately our waiter got one of our orders completely wrong.

We loved here. Great Belgian Beer selection. Had the Flemish Meatballs and cheese and meat appetizers. Filling. We split the Peppercorn Schnitzel-delish! A must eat at pub in Toronto. Loved the quaintly eclectic. Had little fireplaces throughout. Service was wonderful. Made friends with the table next to us. So friendly. Prices were reasonable.

Good hearty pub food, and a decent drinks menu, and a sly name. We went here after being spurned by another place, and this pub is packed evenings and weekends, but for a lunch spot, you could do worse.

Placed was packed on a Wednesday at 5:30 and seemed to stay that way while we ate. Solid food of good quality and generous portion size. I will be back.

I've been here for drinks and for lunch but this is a killer place for dinner. Just a stone's throw from the AGO, this place will make you want to see more art, lol. If you get tired of the beer at this place, you're probably tired of life, or whatever Samuel Johnson said, lol.

I saw the Staropramen coasters and reminisced to the one (or two) I enjoyed at Bar 23 on Kremencova in Prague and thought, why not? Alas, they just have the coasters, not the beer, as server Sarah H. graciously explained. Metres from the Art Gallery of Ontario, this place was buzzing on a Saturday night. Promptly served, we had a... More

... for the price. Part of a group of pubs in the downtown area, I have watched Sin grow from it's humble rotisserie roots to the fully Belgian-style pub it is today. Sin is in a fantastic location for a first date, or to get home from a night of too many quads. The food is good, rarely a disappointment.... More

Chinatown's streets are always bustling, packed with people and outdoor stalls hawking fresh produce and products. The restaurants and authentic marketplaces that shoulder in against each other display shining roast ducks and menus studded with dumplings and noodle bowls. The air is pervaded with music. different languages, and the smell of fried food and mouth-watering desserts. Chinatown's restaurants represent a broad range of fare, from traditional Szechuan and Shanghai foods, to other Asian delicacies, including some of the top Japanese, Vietnamese, and Korean spots in the city. Whether you're in the mood for a sit-down tea house or a bubble tea to go, Chinatown is the spot to enjoy an exciting walk and the promise of leaving satisfied.
