A group of us arrived at Cava - a pleasant space, easy atmosphere and not pretentious. We had a number of dishes, some really quite good (e.g. supergilda, grilled octopus, venison), other dishes were nothing particularly special (e.g. pincho foie gras, hay roasted carrots, ceviche). We had other dishes including the paella (rice too stodgy) and cuttlefish (also too stodgy)... More

Enjoyed it very much yet again. The service is always very good. A lot of variety with the food and always good. Nice ambiance and intimate room.

Birthday celebration. the ambience is great and not too loud. The place is not huge and was busy but didn't feel cramped at all. Plenty of waiters floating around ready to help ( so not necessarily the same waiter will follow the whole meal requests) a waiter helped us with our order and recommended some tapas and we had the...

We have been to Cava several times and have never been disappointed and last night was no exception. We had a wonderful evening.

we tried two meat dishes, one fish dish, all appetizers, and followed the server's suggestion for Spanish wine. All were great!

We have been going to Cava for a a number of years and always enjoyed the wide selection of tapas and equally impressive line up of Spanish wines. Generally good service and compared to a few years ago much better acoustics.

Most expensive dishes on the menue, steak ($36) and paella ($65), are the best value for money. Tapas are amazing, delicately spiced and soothing, albeit small. Wine pairing is a must with tapas. Ambiance is unobtrusive, industrial modern, and low noise ... very important these days as some restaurants with excellent food are painfuly noisy. The service in Kava is... More

We were craving tapas and searched online for what was close to where we were at the time. Found Cava online and decided to give it a try. Got there at 5:30 pm on a Friday night and there were already a few tables with guests. By the time we left, the place was packed. This is why they recommend... More

Party of four attended for an intimate 50th birthday celebration and trusted Cava with their tasting menu. Everything was perfect despite the challenge of the birthday girl announcing that she had an aversion to onions...argh...at a tapas restaurant! Both the kitchen and our server handled everything in stride and produced 7 interesting and delicious dishes. Roasted sablefish and black rice... More

Great tapas restaurant with romantic atmosphere, attentive service and very good food. Portions are tiny, so be prepared to spend a significant dollar or leave hungry. The Ceviche and Stuffed pepper were wonderful, but he Croquetee of Jamon and a couple of other choices were mediocre. Solid wine selection. A few tables sat empty for the entire evening, yet we...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its most stylish high-rise residences and heritage buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools, jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
