Party of 4 We all loved our dishes, especially the grilled octopus and the cataplana, Didn’t care for the Lisbon platter, it does not really portrait a platter of Portuguese appetizers, the shrimp patties and cod quenelles aren’t good at all, next time won’t bother...More

It was a quiet night, and the staff took advantage by providing exemplary service, without inserting themselves into our meal unnecessarily. We really enjoyed all of the dishes and cocktails that were recommended by our server.

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

Some establishments do fly in their seafood daily and since they cannot get shipments in on Sunday, then the seafood may not be the freshest. I would say that preparation also counts. I never have worried about ordering... More
