In the middle of March, 2017, I enjoyed a nice lunch at Peter Pan restaurant in downtown Toronto. I was treating my mother to a birthday lunch there. She, like myself, liked it very much at this restaurant. My lunch consisted of an omelette filled with smoked salmon, and leeks. The portion was perfect to satisfy my appetite at the... More

We saw this place while walking on Queen street on Saturday and decided we would come back the next day for brunch because it looked good. It did not disappoint! I had the croque madame with a duck egg on top and brioche bread. We shared the homemade scones served hot with butter and jam on the side and it... More

Peter Pan is one of Toronto's oldest and most authentic restaurants, having just finished a face lift, which was subtle, but it still feels the same. My friend and I went for brunch on a Saturday (opens at 10 am BTW), arriving around noon. Greeted by friendly staff, who gladly settled us into one of their original retro booths, with... More

With TripAdvisor, 3/5 is Average and 4/5 is Very Good. This restaurant fits in between the two choices at "Good". My wife and I came here on Sat.2017.Apr.01 shortly after 10 am which is when they open. At the time, there was lots of seating available, numerous tables for 2 and booths for 4. I counted 13 customers in total... More

we went for Sunday brunch - we didn't have a reservation so had to wait about 30 mins. The service was friendly and fun, and the food was ok. We had the Shashuka which was disappointing - it tasted like milk salsa and we expected more flavour and herbs and spices to have been used. I had the eggs and... More

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

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.
