Bright,large restaurant with linen table cloths! Old school service, real waters that get your order correct. Good selection, attention to detail, good food. If you are thinking dinner before the theatre, these folks are superb at prompt,service. The portions are huge. Be sure to check out the daily specials, they were excellent! Hint...they have free underground parking for their patrons!

Hi, we had family visiting and tried to find a central location as well as easy access to the Royal Alex. I originally made a reservation for 14 but 20 people ended up coming. The restaurant was more than willing to accommodate our changes. We had a lovely dinner and great celebration. The food was fabulous - no complaints. I... More

Bright , open atmosphere. Excellent service. Moderate prices. Portions were large, but lacking in flavour. Tzatziki sauce required to step things up. Great location for theater, plus free validated parking underground.

We visited on a Monday as a large group of 18. Restaurant was quiet as there were no shows which was good. Good was amazing - the garlic shrimp was delicious but my peer who had the seafood souvlaki found it tin be dry. Unfortunately, the head of the table was offered the desert menu but declined and those of... More

Went there for a business lunch. Enjoyed the special and the flaming cheese but found it difficult to talk to the person on the other side of the table due to the noise. We managed through and enjoyed the meal immensely.

The food, the service, the dessert! We stopped here after the lunch rush and still we were treated wonderfully. No rush at all, beautiful environment. Absolutely worth visiting.

The food was amazing and so is the restaurant. It's quaint and so relaxing to sit and chat and eat with your family. Good service and people that know their food. Will go there many more times....

For whatever reason, we have been on a Greek food binge for the past few weeks. After hitting up all of the restaurants on the Danforth we decided to come down to King West. Penelope offers a very nice restaurant setting with great food and decent service. The chicken souvlaki plate was amongst the best we have ever had! On... More

I've had some great food in Greece. Simple fresh fish, great salads, fantastic grilled lamb and octopus, terrific peppery olive oil. But in my experience Greek restaurants abroad just don't seem to be able to deliver. Sadly, Penelope wasn't an exception. No self respecting Greek would make melitzanosalata with dill; parsley yes, dill no. Souvlaki made with beef? No! That's... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
