prix fixe menu

Who has the best prix fixe menu in downtown/midtown Toronto? I'm looking for something in the $25-$35 range. Thanks!

  1. I think that Midi on McCaul might have a reasonable prix fixe menu. There food is very good and the atmosphere very french bistro.

      I second this. You also get a good choice in the "fixe".

        Last night, the boyfriend and I went to Midi for the first time.

        While the service wasn't very efficient, the waiter (slash owner?) gave us plenty of good suggestions off the menu and even told us that the couscous wasn't anything special, so we were better off with the meat or fish.

        We both chose the $32 prix fixe, and I must say that the food was wonderful. I had the baked mussels (deliciously garlicky...these were the hit of the night for me), lamb (very tender and tasty) with vegetables and salted frites, creme brulee (good, but not outstanding) and a nice tea to finish off dinner.

        The boyfriend had the soup of the day (pureed tomato and chickpea. I didn't try it, but he seemed to enjoy it very much), steak frites (which he loved. The steak was tender, juicy, and nicely seasoned), tarte tatin with cinnamon ice cream (he loved the ice cream) and coffee.

        All in all, we had a great time. The atmosphere is indeed very French bistro, as tartetatin mentioned, although looking outside at McCaul does detract somewhat from that feeling. We would definitely go back.

    2. Just had a great meal last week at Langolino (Clinton n. of College). They're starting up a prix fixe at last. Curried leek soup or mussels for the app. were sublime and plentiful, lasagna, tilapia or chicken for main and cheesecake or tiramisu for dessert. $25 for it and worth every penny...

      1. i enjoy the prix fixe at bodega on baldwin.

        1. Bistro Tournesol on Dupont is a really good value as well.

          1. Does La Palette still have their prix fixe?
