This is the place to go if you want fresh, good seafood. the dishes are standard and the menu doesn't change much but the choices are good. However, if you are not a "fishy" person, this may not be the place for you.

There is an excellent wine list, reasonably priced for the quality, concentrating on Portuguese wines. There is also an excellent selection of reasonably priced ports.

Half a block from bustling Yonge St; the tasteful, quiet dinning room is a prelude to a near perfect experience. All elements of the service was exceptional. I had the Portuguese version of bouillabaisse, that would match the standards of Marseilles for fish variety, and...More

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,
