My wife and I are more or less pescetarian. We really enjoyed the vegetable paella and the featured salmon. The service was extraordinary, and the chef went around to every table to check in. Just a great experience overall.

I enjoyed it. A lot of the items were sort of authentic. The comfort factor wasn't here but I really did enjoy the flavours and atmosphere.

Excellent food, authentic dishes, good wine list. It feels very much like Montréal or even Spain. Go easy on the tapas it could get expensive. Tapas are a less expensive way of eating in Spain , not when you get them abroad. Mind you, well...More

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
