Tastebud tourism at its best! Missing Spain? Head to LaVinia for takeout tapas and be sure to order the calamares a la plancha and the gambas salteadas! Amazing!

Family owned Spanish tapas restaurant. Cozy romantic atmosphere, fantastic wine made overseas by the family, cordial non obtrusive service. But the highlight is definitely the food! Outstanding flavorful gazpacho, incredible salmon carpaccio marinated in brandy, clams with chorizo and white beans, and my personal fav...braised octopus. Very Highly Recommended!!!More

Ordered Veal Carpaccio, Mussels, Arugula Salad, Seared Scallops. We took home the Spanish Meatballs because we were so full. The bread with pesto spread was a meal in itself. A great experience even with Covid Protocol. Carol

LaVinia is one of the few restaurants in Toronto offering authentic Spanish fare. It was highly recommended by the hotel concierge. LaVinia is a cozy restaurant with wooden interiors and red-painted walls much like the Spanish flag. The staff was nice and quick to seat...us. We ordered the sopa de ajo, paella valenciana and the fish of the day. All very good and flavourful.More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
