We ate here due to its close proximity to the Chelsea.I had a very tasty burger but I think they forgot to put anything in my ceaser salad and it tasted like I was eating plain romaine.I felt the prices were fair for what we got and my wife enjoyed her meal.I would go back but wouldnt recommend the caesar.

This restaurant was right beside the hotel we stayed in and it is. If you are looking for simple fare, reasonable prices then this is a good choice. The decor was a little more updated then some other locations that we have ate in. The fare is standard I had the bangers/mash with a draught beer and my husband had... More

We stopped in here for dinner, and we weren't sorry! After a long day of walking several miles, we were hungry, and wanted a hearty meal; we were not disappointed. We were treated I. Educate,your by a friendly host, and seated at a table. Our waitress was also very friendly and at my request, was quick to suggest a local... More

Stopped in here for a nice Malbec and bar food. Wine fabulous. On the food front I had hummus and warm pitta bread which was gorgeous and there was plenty of it, enough for two. We also had sweet potato fries and again cooked to perfection. I would definitely recommend this place and will return!

We were in search of a place for lunch and Guiness and we were glad we chose here. The Guiness was very good and we enjoyed our lunch. I had the sausages and garlic mash. If there is garlic in the mash you don't taste it which was fine by me. My husband had the stuffed Yorkshire pudding. He was... More

Nothing like a little pub fare for a hearty change from fine dining. For this meal, I started off with a warm--not tongue-singeing hot--ale and onion soup which appeared just as I’d hoped once my pint of Keith’s and the newspaper were done, switching next to a glass of Argentinian Malbec: yum, yum! The steak and mushroom pie to follow... More

We have passed by this location many times and after enjoying a show today we decided to give it a try. It is nicely decorated and clean inside. It is also much bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside. Our server was very prompt and attentive as was the person on the door, we were immediately seated.... More

First of all, it's a very easily accessible by public transit; convenient for having drinks freely. We noticed that the establishment has undergone a recent renovation; nicely done! High ceiling gives you space... All dishes have been satisfactory; nachos, onion soup, steak... Only classic poutine was a bit dryer than it supposed to be... The steak size exceeded the expectation... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
