Great place for date night. Not very busy on weekday evening. We booked two weeks ahead and they reserved a booth table for us. We had the prix fixe menu from priceless cities which gave us two glasses of sparkling wine, grilled squids as appetizer,...More

The service was okay. I ordered an appetizer of sardines and a salad to follow, and my partner ordered the sea bream. The food was very well prepared. I would have expected the server to bring my app first, but he brought both my dishes...More

A very pleasant and comfortable restaurant offering an interesting menu and very good service. The seafood mains were excellent and among the best we have had locally. Soup and salads were also very good. Highly recommended

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

Some establishments do fly in their seafood daily and since they cannot get shipments in on Sunday, then the seafood may not be the freshest. I would say that preparation also counts. I never have worried about ordering... More
