If you want to take a culinary world tour without getting on a plane, train or automobile there is arguably no better place on earth than Toronto. Toronto restaurants represent every region of the planet; it’s hard to find a cuisine that’s not available somewhere in this wonderful city. And what’s most enticing is that Toronto’s best restaurants aren’t just high end offerings. Get to know the city’s myriad neighbourhoods and you’ll find gems in all price ranges offering up dishes that compete with the world’s best. We’re excited to share some of the best restaurants in Toronto that we have discovered!
Each of these restaurants holds a special place in our hearts. Often, it’s more than just the food itself. It’s the richness of culture, the wonderful people behind the scenes, the way a spot makes us feel at home.

We get that “best ever” is subjective, but for us these really are the best we’ve had – so far. Feel free to challenge us and suggest options!
