Hey folks,

Anyone tried a resto called Coquin (SP?) on yonge south of eglinton. It took over for a local pub. Just let me know, thanks.

  1. It is called Coquine.

    Haven't been there yet but walked past the other day and the reno looks very nice.

    The menu is a bit of a disaster - they are trying to please everyone but there is no coherence. It ranges from a half dozen pastas to cassoulet. I will have to give it a try since I live in the area but Mirabelle and Quince will be hard to beat.

    1. I tried Coquine for a light dinner Friday evening with a friend. We liked the ambience: the restaurant side has the feel of a Parisian bistro with tiled floors, a dark wood bar, and mirrors. The bar/tapas side has long marble slabs serving as high tables, and smaller, round tables with bar stools. The menu is French bistro fare (moules et frites, onion soup, steak and frites, cassoulet), with some pasta dishes. We tried the appetizer for two, which included cheese, grilled vegetables and prosciutto ($18). Then we both had an arugala, fig, prosciutto and gorgonzola salad (as our main course) $12. Then creme brulee for dessert $6. Service was excellent. We would return. Mains were about $18-25.

      1. We went about two weeks ago and thought it was terrific. Nice addition to the neighbourhood. Great ambience and will definitely go back.
