Hockey plus baseball plus a symphony concert and folks just wanting to eat or drink makes a perfect, loud, boisterous storm here at prime dinner time. Add a few infants who think it's loud, which it is. Food very good, servers seem nonplussed by it all. But if you end up at a table in the bar, a major vibe... More

Great location and atmosphere, huge and well appointed premises, excellent service and drink list. Try their "the works" poutine.

The restaurant is a short walk from The Princess of Wales Theatre, The Royal Alexander Theatre and Roy Thomson Hall . We have walked by it many times without going in even thou we had considered trying it out. Last week we went to see The Book Of Mormon at the Princess of Wales Theatre and decided not to walk...

I came here with a group of about 20 people. While originally our reservation was for 15 people, Elephant & Castle was able to accommodate the larger than expected turnout which was very impressive! Then things started to go wrong. While we were seated on our table, the server begins serving food to half the table! I asked why is... More

This was a good choice as it opens at 11:00 and is just steps from the Royal Alexander Theatre. Very large restaurant that was very busy. Excellent hamburger although I did think it could have been hotter.

We were exhausted and on our first day were looking for a solid meal. Elephant and castle has outstanding selections. My wife had non-greasy fish and chips and I had a delicious Yorkshire Pudding baked perfectly. Assortment of tea is available as well as a full range of alcohol. The service is outstanding and the servers know exactly how to... More

Had an onion soup, fish taco, and works poutine. The food is fairly average, but I found the price to be high for what you get. The NY Fries works is a better deal. After getting our food, our server never came back to check up on us or top up our water. We had to get another server to... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
