Convenient location re hotels and other activities; food choices include vegetarian and excellent fish selection. Some items a bit spicy so be sure to ask if that is a concern. Wines, as with most downtown Toronto restaurants were expensive. Very good meal

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

It was some time ago I went but I recall that there were plant based options. Also, I found them so helpful that I would ask them to modify some of the meat based options

There is no children's menu as far as I know. I would take my four grandchildren but they are accustomed to dining in upscale restaurants and are all over 11 years of age.
