Good French Bistro style places

I'm curious to try French bistro style dining in Toronto/GTA - my own understanding of what bistro style cooking is limited to the idea that it's an unpretentious restaurant with dependable (but imaginative) cooking and moderately priced (relative to a fancy French restaurant). Is that an outdated definition or simply less applicable in T.O.? Any suggestions?

  1. My first pick would be Niagara Street Cafe. One of the best value of the city, IMO.

    1. Do a search on this board for Batifole. I think it is exactly what you're looking for.

      1. Thanks for both recommendations. I read some of the posts on Batifole and will certainly plan on trying it!

        1. Hi,
          You should try Merlot, Bloor west & Royal york.
