I've been to Le Notre Bistro many times and will keep coming back! Serguei and his team always bring you only local and fresh food. The flavours are delicious, the drinks are to die for. The atmosphere and service are phenomenal every time. Highly recommend

There's something very cool about this place. Sitting inside, you feel like you could be in Paris or New York yet there is something definitively "Toronto" about it. Maybe it's the hip Harbord Village neighbourhood. Maybe it's the welcoming tone of the staff. Maybe it's...More

This is still one of the highest quality French bistros in Toronto. We were given an 'Amuse Bouche' of steak tartar to begin with, which was wonderful. We then had a slither of Haloumi cheese which was covered in chanterelle, grapes and beets. Multiple flavours...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip

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
