Good Mexican Restaurants in GTA

AhadSQ Mar 26, 2012 08:36 AM

I've been looking for a good Mexican place to eat. I've been to some but they're the mucho-burrito type if you get me. What I'm really loooking for is a nice sit down place with a full menu. Kevin O'Leary recommended one to me. It was on Dupton St. but I could not recall the name. If you know the name of that restaurant or any other new ones please forward them on to me. Thank You.

    He was probably mentioning Playa Cabana http://www.playacabana.ca/ which is on Dupont Street.

    I think you can do better than that, check out this list: http://www.toronto-restaurants.com/to...

      I agree that Playa Cabana isn't a "nice sit down place" and perhaps not overly authentic so likely not what the OP is looking for. That said, it is a really fun place to go for some good food (great guacamole, good tacos, enchiladas, etc.), a great selection of Mexican beers and tequila, good music and a fun vibe - all at a reasonable price point. They have a small front patio and they're opening a larger, back patio soon. I've been a few times now and I really like this place.
