I love the food here. BBQ'd fried chicken, jerk chicken, catfish fish n chips. corn bread, candied plantain (my favourite). Quaint little place that is nice and cozy but nit too small. However, they always seem to just have one staff member in the dining area, so service is really slow. Good service, but slow. I work nearby and go... More

Reasonably priced beverages. Interesting menu we tried glazed short ribs, collard greens and I had rice/peas hubby had mac n cheese. Very good with... More

My boyfriend and I went to Harlem for dinner and it was really good. I had the fried chicken with mac and cheese. Both were delicious, crispy and juicy fried chicken, nice gravy and hot sauce on the side, collard greens, and an amazingly cheesy mac and cheese. The staff was friendly and service was really quick, it wasn't super... More

This is not just a great place to eat, it's a great place to be. The staff were prompt, friendly and keen to enjoy the evening with us. The drinks were exceptional and we struck up a fun rapport. The food was nothing short of authentic Caribbean. You can alter the drinks and the food for nonstandard taste but the... More

Stumbled across this place and was so glad I did! The restaurant is really cozy and comfortable, they had great music a lot of hip-hop and R&B. I had the fried chicken, probably the best I have ever tasted, with mac & cheese on the side. The waitress was nice, they had a house made spicy mango sauce and she... More

The waitress was very friendly, the food we ordered was worth the money we paid for, I ordered the fried chicken and waffles. It was DELICIOUS, the fried chicken tasted like homemade SOUL... More

We had been to this restaurant 4 times in the last 3 years, and were WOWed each time. Having not been for a few months, we longed for their Sunday brunch. We were really disappointed. The service was slow. There was 1 waiter who seemed like he would rather be somewhere else. The meal took over 30 minutes to arrive.... More

Terrible service and not amazing food. Looks good but isn't great. Skip it, there's a bunch of other great restaurants in the area.

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.
