What did it take for Torontonians to really get to know Mexican food? Nothing short of Milagro – a miracle. The Mexican eatery, which has a location in the heart of Queen West, has been at the forefront of transforming Toronto’s palate since it opened in 2006. Today, we think nothing of ordering a rich mole, comforting enchiladas or a fresh, bright ceviche.

But back when Milagro owner and co-founder Arturo Anhalt opened the cantina, he realized that Toronto had never seen anything like it. “There were Mexican restaurants in the city, but even the traditional ones were warping the food to please the guests,” says Arturo. Fried chimichangas, fajitas, cheddar cheese – completely foreign in Mexico – had squeezed their way into the Mexican restaurant scene because the clientele had the idea that these were Mexican foods and demanded them.

Brought my family who recently moved here from Mexico. They said it was the most authentic meal they’ve had in Toronto to date. Our server was excellent and very helpful when asked about where to find various dishes/ingredients in the city.

Our server was a vegetarian and now vegan which went a very long way to help my collection of friends who are vegan, vegetarian and ketotarian. He was able to help all in our group of ten with their food selections and dietary restrictions. Overall great service, good value and we would certainly go again.

Everything was amazing. The only negative point was that we had made a reservation, and we were going to be seated at a small table close to the front door, in a high traffic area. We ended up in a booth by the kitchen, which was comfortable, but right beside the kitchen.

Went for a Valentine's Day meal. Service was appalling - struggled to get attention, waited ages for food, constantly bumped by waiters pushing past table. Asked to stand up in the middle of the meal so a waiter could get between tables. A real shame as the food is great, and it has a nice atmosphere. But the service completely let the restaurant down.
