The Chiado is a fine restaurant. It has a great selection in the menu as well as in the wine list. The service is very courteous. The prices are good. The ambience is just right with a number of high quality paintings on the wall.

The food was great and the servings huge. Big fish variety, not a lot of gluten free options though. The service was just ok, not super friendly.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
