Toronto Restaurants with Views of the Lake

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 :)
