Very good food, a positive hipster vibe and competent sevice. A little loud and not the place where you will linger catching up with friends. A good quick meal.

A hip place for fun food. Great for a date and the food is well made and tasty. Try the dips, corn on the Cobb and mango avocado salad. Didn't care too much for the tacos and would have preferred to just eat more apps....More

The new location at King and John is great for families. There is an upper level away from the bar and it's perfect for an evening meal after catching a movie at TIFF.

Jess ...La Carnita is not a hotel. But If you are travelling to Toronto and need transportation to your hotel, there are lots of taxi's.
