Keep coming back to this gem of a place. I literally dream of the beef short rib burrito afterwards, it's that good! Hip vibe and great drinks!

We felt it was over-priced for the quality of food and service. I hear the Cantina in the Junction is very good though.

The hot habenero sauce was delicious, but it's no joke.

First time here. Atmosphere and ambiance were great, nice and lively place. Food was freah, hot and authentic. Service could have been a bit more attentive as I had to wait and flag down my waiter in order to order additional drinks but food came very quickly. I will definitely return with additional guests and would highly recommend for those looking for authentic Mexican cuisine.

Very squished tables, people going past bumping chairs. Food good but not great.

Absolutely the best Mexican food in town. Always heaving with people. Amazing service with a smile. Fish tacos and beef brisket is amazing. I hate to say this, better than food in Mexico!

The main courses were pretty small considering the price. We were glad we had a starter (chips and salsa fresca. Overall, we had a lovely evening! It was especially nice to sit outside.

Food has gone down hill since last time I visited last year. The guac was ok... didn't have any tomato or cilantro.. just avocado.. and the chips felt stale. The tacos were average. The salad tasted like it was a bean mix from a can. The corn appetizer was not good. There is much better Mexican these days in Toronto. Also, there is a ton of construction in front of the restaurant, which makes it unpleasant to sit outside on the patio and tough for parking.

Very good food, good service but SO noisy and crowded that it negatively impacted our experience. Not one server or customer walked past my chair without kicking it, even though I had it tucked in as far as possible. The music was so loud, we had to shout to be heard by servers and those in our group. There is no need for a dining experience to be turned into a shotung match - turn down the music so your guests can actually talk to each other. We ate our dinner and got out as fast as possible - not sure I’d go back despite the good food.

Great food. Excellent service. They were very busy and had a few double bookings but offered up a complementary starter to make up for it. Make sure you book ahead in any case. Would definitely return.

The service was less attentive then usually, we come pretty frequent and typically service is excellent our experience on Friday was slightly less. We order both appetizers, entrees and desserts, I was a little disappointed in the churros as they were really greasy and hard(they’ve been better), everything is in terms of food was amazing as usual

Best Restaurants to Eat Fantastic Appetizers in Toronto

Start your visit to this wildly popular Annex-area Mexican joint with an order of elotes a la parilla. This wickedly tasty starter features grilled corn on the cob rubbed in chili pequin, lime and queso fresca/anejo. The result is a zingy paroxysm of flavour that’ll take your taste buds for a spin round the lime grove before dropping you off for dinner.

Best sangria in Toronto

Best sangria in Toronto

Owned by Mas Playas, Playa Cabana is just one of their many Mexican-inspired restaurants. You won’t find the sangria in a pitcher, but it still packs some serious punch. Both white and red sangria is mixed with Mount Gay blanco and fresh fruit.
