I'll keep this short. I buy most of my seafood at Dianas. Love the quality, freshness, selection etc. These same traits appear at the restaurant as well. Food quality is exceptional My issue is the atmosphere. For the pricing ( yes it's seafood i get it), I feel I should get more than a tired view of the parking lot... More

Had a family get together. The service and the dishes were excellent. Very imaginative cook . Only downside is we all had head aches the next day with the red wine. This is a pity as we all enjoyed the food.

Didn't have a lot of time but we felt like a quick drink and some oysters. The Sunday special was 12 malpeques for $15 (good deal) and they were very nice. We also ordered the oyster Rockefeller which was also very tasty. We have been here before and the oysters are always very fresh, the staff polite and knowledgeable. Only... More

We used to buy fish from the market; after 10 years of absence from the community, it's been a pleasure for me to have a seafood restaurant nearby. The atmosphere is nice, service is friendly and helpful. The food is fresh... The prices are a bit over than I expected. I definitely recommend for a dinner of two or any... More

I had know about this restaurant for many years, but had heard that was small and hard to get in. It is small but I had not trouble getting a reservation on the same day as we wanted to eat. I am sorry I had not dined here sooner since Scarborough does not have many fine seafood dining places. My... More

We go to this place a couple of time a year as it is closed to office. This time we made reservation as we went as a big group for lunch. The service was very slow from the beginning. It took them over 20 minutes to serve 4 dozens of oysters. They missed one main dish (gave to a wrong... More

Went with my mom got lunch. We ordered the soup of the day, my mom got the crab cakes appetizer which she said was good. Our server recommended the grilled octopus salad. I'm glad he did! It's amazing! Didn't order anything else because the portions are huge! Will go back soon!

My brother and I have a long-standing tradition, going back some 35 years, that whenever he visits Toronto from England we go out for a lobster dinner. You just don’t get that big juicy east-coast style lobster in England, so it’s a real treat for him. Until now, we have satisfied that craving by going to the Lobster Trap on... More

Mine was a party of 5 for dinner. Four of us had steamed lobster with melted butter whilst one had sea bass. The ambiance was bright and fresh. Pricing was based on weight and we were offered a good selection of available sizes. The service was friendly with a strong willingness to please but for these prices I would have... More

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
