Best seafood I’ve ever had. The seasoning makes the lobster so flavourful, unlike many places that serve them plain. However, this is very messy to eat, so don’t bother dressing up to come here. Been here twice so far and I will definitely continue going!...More

It's not an extensive menu...lobster, crab legs and other shellfish. I think it's Sous Vide cooking. You have a choice of seasonings. The food comes to your table - no forks, spoons...or plates. Cinch up the bib, put on the gloves (provided) and start munching....More

They provide every customer a plastic bib and a pair of plastic gloves. You know it's going to be messy. No plates and no utensils. Orders are served in plastic bags. Eating with your hands like in a medieval restaurant. Seafood was fresh and tasty....More

North York
North York is one of Toronto's most culturally diverse
neighborhoods. Home to a number of cultural events
throughout the year that celebrate the city's varied
ethnic communities, it's always worthwhile to see
what's going on in the area. Its cross-section of
inhabitants include students and long-time residents,
giving North York an eclectic feeling of being both
local and international. Extremely family-friendly,
