The restaurant is the perfect spot for an intimate downtown lunch. From the exposed brick to the wrought iron accents. The interior design shows they've taken the time to make the interior as interesting as the food. Everything has that comfortable, familiar feeling that is...More

The restaurant looks good however its certainly not "casual French dining experience" The crepes, which this restaurant is famed for, were a disappointment, the "Benedicts" had cold untoasted english muffins and the desserts were not memorable Service was however attentive.

The atmosphere was warm and cosy on a cold winters day. The service was ok not great but the French Onion soup and crepes were amazing! Value for money was very good. Good wine selction.

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

Le Papillon on Front is located in the heart of Old Town Toronto. Inside of a beautiful Old Town Toronto building with exposed brick walls and high lofty ceilings sits the beautiful venue for Le Papillon on Front. It's exposed brick is complemented well by the aged hardwood floor and perfectly soft lighting. The venue suggests a lovely mix of romance, comfort, and of course, the classic French bistro atmosphere that has followed Le Papillon to all of its locations. In the warmer months Le Papillon on Front even creeps its way onto Front street, giving a beautiful view of the Flatiron building as well as the CN tower in the distance. With a closed in patio adorned with wonderfully arranged planters you experience a private feel, even while sitting on the heart of Front Street.
