This Gastro Pub is one of my very spots in our neighborhood. The food is generously severed and so tasty that you always try to eat the whole thing and need some time to recover. Every staff member in the place welcomes you and has a genuine attention to care and a good time. Great beers on tap, I have... More

I visited this place with a local who says they always bring people here when they come to visit. The food was fantastic, it really felt like home cooking. For someone on the road home cooking is a nice treat. I would definitely eat here again.

Fantastic energetic upscale restaurant that has become one of our go to places to get a cold beer and a delicious dinner. Somewhat eclectic wait staff that are super on their game. Great specials that seem to chance daily. Been here 30+ times and they have been on their game every single time. Show up early or be prepared for... More

I've been here many times. My friends and I have been here for brunch, lunch and dinner. Their bunch is packed and sometimes line ups out the door. All food is great here. They have roast beef Sundays FYI.

The food in this place is SUPERB. The portions are quite generous. The service is fast and efficient. The acoustics of the place are a bit off so it tends to be a tad noisy. Go with a bit of patience and not a lot of hunger because most likely you will have to wait for a table as it... More

Went out with family. No reservations. Had to wait , but not long. This is a pub, with pub fare, riotous atmosphere, good beer, good pricing, quick service and well prepared meals. I had seafood linguini, beer and bread pud. For four people, the total was less than CAD140. Consistent value and good food over the years! Maybe that's why... More

I adore this restaurant for when I want a meal that feels fancy but is reasonably priced. The daily features are always fantastic and the last time i went the french cut pork chop with marsala cream sauce, mushrooms, goat cheese and onion mashed potatoes and mixed veggies was phenomenal. I honestly couldn't believe the size of the portion and... More

House on Parliament is probably the best gastropub in Toronto. It offers great food and everything on the menu looked awesome. The House on Parliament is far enough away from the Financial District and Yorkville that the prices are quite reasonable, if not cheap. We started off with the House Soup and Swanky Caesar Salad. Next for our main courses,... More

House on Parliament has the feel of a neighbourhood pub. It was quite busy the evening we went. We waited about half an hour, but it was Thanksgiving Monday, and they did bring us drinks while we waited. Service was great, the food was excellent!! There are 2 floors, fairly tightly packed tables, and a small bar area that was... 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.
