Cantine Bistro & Bar

Continuing a long tradition of great food, an inviting & warm atmosphere, and excellent service, Cantine Bar & Grill welcomes you.

From the cozy, welcoming oversized leather sofa chairs that greet you upon entering, to the newly renovated full service bar (with 8 draft beers on tap), to the monthly art installations lining the walls, through to the weekly in house guest musicians and vocalists, Cantine remains one of Toronto's best kept secrets. With the city at our doorstep, the energy, beauty and vibrancy of Yorkville all around come and enjoy lunch and

"The good was delicious. I had the Spaghettini with calamari. The calamari was the most tender I have ever had. My husband had the Spaghettini with Scallops which he enjoyed as well. Ambience was nice, it was early so Not crowded. He had found the Cantine 2 days prior when he had lunch there. Would definitely return."

"The service is always friendly and the food is always good. An evening here is safe for a crowd because there's enough mainstream, old familiar favs, to please almost anyone."
