Toronto Restaurants with Patios

La Cubana | Ossington

The food in Cuba is wonderful. On our trips to Havana we ate some really delicious stuff, drank some perfect cocktails and woke up every morning to the best coffee outside of Rome. I didn't think I would taste mojitos or medianoches like I had in Havana right here in Toronto. From the authentic pressed cubano sandwiches to the juicy guava bbq beef short ribs, La Cubana recreates delicious Cuban favourites in their two locations on Ossington and Roncesvalles. These pics are from a dinner at the Ossington location, but both spots are equally spot-on.

Firkin On The Bay | Humber Bay Shores

For the longest time the only place to eat on a patio on the Humber Bay Shores was at Eden. It's really good but it's nice to have some other options. Firkin on the Bay is a welcome addition to this pretty area. Even if you sit inside, the huge floor-to-ceiling windows give a great view of Lake Ontario and the downtown Toronto skyline. The interior is inspired by a London tube station and is really fun and funky, with huge industrial open ceilings and giant bright canvases.

Amsterdam Brewhouse | Harbourfront

Amsterdam Brewhouse is the perfect place to go if you want to meet a bunch of friends on a Saturday night to watch the Leaf game, in a really nice bar with really good food. I love anyplace on the water that has a view like this:

In addition to an excellent beer selection, the menu has some really well-above-average tasting pub food. Highlights for me were this poached pear salad with bruleed goat cheese, and brown butter lobster rolls with poutine:

A casual, lively and lovely spot that overlooks the harbourfront. Rosie :)
