Romantic Mid Price Resteraunts TO

Hello, I am planning on taking my OH out for a romantic meal. I am not a cheap skate but am not working right now and can't afford the likes of Canoe etc. Can anyone reccomend a nice romantic resteraunt with great food and setting that wont break the bank? Thanks

    1. I usually see somewhere like Weezie's recommended for something like this.

          Yes, but it's not the type of restaurant I would be looking for in the same scenario; I just meant that it seems to be one often recommended for this sort of question.

      1. can you let us know what means breaking the bank for you? $15 mains, or $20? will you be having wine? thanks.

        that being said, your best bet might be a prix fixe like those at Corner House, Sidecar, Libretto, etc...

        1. Amuse Bouche on Tecumseth has a $50 3 course Prix Fixe on right now.
          Not sure if that is out of your price range but definitely a very cosy, romantic restaurant!
          Swan (Queen/Crawford) is another option...cosy booths, and romantic lighting. Not crazy priced.

          1. La Palette used to be really good for that sort of thing, though I hear that the service has gone downhill since one partner left.
            Otherwise, I'd go to Le Paradis. Choose a table in the downstairs dining room. It's cozy and reasonably romantic. Most importantly, it's cheap.

              Niagara Street Cafe, Tournesol Bistro, Starfish come to mind. Tournesol food not the best, but great prices and I find the ambience quite nice. How about Allen's patio if weather permits. Their patio is lovely.
