But a quick glance at recent TA reviews convinced us otherwise. Seemed that the place to go was Carisma on King, easily walkable in good weather from the Westin. But, alas, reservation apps showed no... More

I've been wanting to try Carisma forever, and wasn't disappointed! The service was very attentive without feeling overbearing. The sommelier helped us choose a wine for the evening, he was very informative and helpful. The appetizers (burrata and scallops) were amazing, both in terms of presentation and taste. The mains were not quite as good, the veal chop was a... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
