Pickering recommendations

  • c

I'm doing some work in Pickering and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for places in the area? Doesn't matter what kind as long as it's good! Asian, Italian, Mediterranean, bar, cafe, cheap, fine dining, brunch, dinner, drinks, patio, etc. I just need places to check out!

    1. I love Makimono..sorry I have said it maybe 2 or 3 times on this board already. It is on Liverpool right beside the 401 (there is a Loblaws plaza in the next lot over). Great sushi rolls! My favorite is the dynamite handroll.

        Thanks for the recommendation - we were in the neighbourhood and went to Makimono based on your review. The food was good (the dynamite handrolls were a favourite!) and the service was fast for an ayce.

          Makimono is Chinese style Japanese food

      2. In Pickering Village,
        Mt Everest and Casa Verde are old standby's.

          The Port near the bottom of Liverpool

          The Burbs at Dixie & Finch

          Both are upscale dining.

        2. Massey's at Liverpool and Krosno makes good hamburgers.


          1. Highly rec'mnd the Burbs.. good resto anywhere in the GTA with a creative chef and attentive service. IMO much better than Port

            1. Cielito Lindo:Authentic Mexican Restaurant

              Very small family own restaurant, very friendly owner and staffs, always fresh, tasty and cheap, one downfall is if you see that they are busy when you walk in, i mean if there are four five tables already sit, I would suggest you to may be go back another day, because they have a very limited kitchen and staffs, you may end up waiting more than an hour for food, big mistakes I made for couple of times, otherwise they are excellent

                Cielito Lindo is neither edible, clean, nor authentic. DO NOT recommend it.
