Good coffee and great baked spiced eggs. The place was buzzing and I really enjoyed my visit. The only problem was that within an hour of leaving I was violently ill and based on previous experience it was the kind of reaction that usually goes with poor hygiene or bad eggs. So disappointing as otherwise I thought this place was... More

Celebrated a friend's birthday at this old 80's stomping ground. What a welcome back. The room is reminiscent of it's heyday as the cultural centre of Queen West. Food and service are now much better than remembered. Good basic bistro menu stalwarts with some edge. Steak with lentils and cauliflower mash is a great rif on steak frites. Cassoulet and... More

Peter Pan is almost an institution - the last time I was there must be 35 years ago! - my husband and I have just bought a condo in the area, so thought we would give the new Peter Pan a try. Food is terrific - emphasis on local produce of all kinds - and desserts are to die for.... More

An excellent renovation to a landmark destination. New patron and chef and designer have done wonderfully well, not just with the public area downstairs, but the event space upstairs. I tried both in space of two weeks. The menu is eclectic and comforting, and the chef was kind enough to serve me fish and chips for dinner, when it was... More

My partner and I went to Peter Pan for a brunch date and the second we arrived we were excited... the inside was cute and cozy and the plates on other tables look delicious... BUT within 3 minutes things started to go sour. We requested a table near a wall so we didn't have to sit on top of others... More

my family and I decided to have a quick bite whilst shopping on Queen street west. The ambience was lovely, the decor unusual ( rugs hanging on the wall with embossed animal heads) and the staff were extremely attentive. Although we can not say a bad thing about the food itself, for what we were served we felt that it... More

What a great "locals" place! We stumbled onto Peter Pan while exploring the West Queen Street area and wow! We dined on the patio and had the best service ever! Their menu is creative and tasty. I had the grilled octopus and oh boy was it great! The wine list is excellent. Whether you dine inside or outside, you will... More

Made a birthday reservation for two. The restaurant had a few people trickling in around 6pm, but for the most part was quiet. Service was exceptional offering wine pairings, cocktail advice, and breaking down her favourites on the menu. Cuisine was exceptional. There is nothing worse than paying a lot of money for mediocre food. I tend to be a... More

Description
With a nod to its place in Toronto's food history, the completely reestablished Peter Pan Bistro brings a contemporary update to the classic traditions of dining out. Peter Pan demonstrates that accomplished cooking does not require a fine dining atmosphere and aims to balance these elements by refining the neighbourhood restaurant.

Peter Pan subscribes to the "nose-to-tail" philosophy, popularly readopted over the past few years. This approach extends beyond simply the consumption of meat, instead embracing the responsible use of all raw ingredients. More than an education through food, what some take as byproducts of cooking, nose-to-tail sees as ingredients in the search for pleasure.

Firm in its foundations of British and French principles, Peter Pan forgoes the unnecessary in its approach. Simple intervention should trump the elaborate wherever possible and Peter Pan looks to do this by honoring and reimagining classic dishes by means of modern playful twists. The homage to classic European cuisine, as well as its newer and cheekier elements, restores Peter Pan back into the evolving Canadian contemporary food scene.

Neighbourhood Profile
Queen Street and West Queen West
Known as the Art & Design District, West Queen West is one of the most energetic and dynamic of Toronto's neighborhoods. Along with its great modernist museums, clubs, and restaurants, it's home to some of the funkiest specialty shops, ranging from clothing to stationary to collectables, and caters to niche and vintage shoppers of all kinds. That makes it a mecca for creatives, including hobbyists designers, writers, and painters. With ink on their hands and fabric pelts in their bags, visitors to Queen Street traverse the avant-garde blend of historic architecture and ultra-contemporary fare. Home to some of Toronto's chicest hotels and most modish java fixes, busy with street cars, and always suffused with live music drifting onto packed patios at bars and clubs by nightfall, the vibrancy of West Queen West is undeniable.
