Great little restaurant for seafood. Sunday is oysters, seafood tower. Looks like a hole in the wall, but what you get is amazing. Great service, watch the bar guys work the oysters and crabs.

I've visited Pearl Diver on several occasions and have consistently had a great experience. The restaurant itself is relatively small and feels relaxed, with warm wood through out and deep church pew like booths for seating. Serving staff is super friendly and attentive, which can...More

Great little spot with a bar. Oysters after 10pm were $18/dozen. Chowder was good and light. Scallop app was great! Octopus app was just ok. Sticky toffee dessert was amazing also.

I went on a Tuesday and the Seafood Tower was the special. Great food and great price. The desert was not so great. Creme Brule had ice crystals. Luckily I was not charged for the desert

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

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
