Moroccan
Atlas Restaurant – named after the epic mountain range that spans the North West of Africa – pays homage to the regional cuisines of Morocco. An intimate room, with only twenty-two seats, is warm and inviting for groups large and small.
We kindly ask groups of 5 or more contact us at 416-807-2227 or email us at Events@P2PHG.com for bookings.

This cuisine presents a rich tapestry of spices and herbs – textures and tastes. The regional variances of their cuisine is as vast as their topography and Chef Doug Penfold tries to present an honest and deferential interpretation of this food.

Complementing the food is a thoughtful list of wines and spirits from the great vinicultural regions of the world. The complex cuisine of Morocco allows us to explore Old and New World selections alike, and allows us to enhance the experience through compelling pairings and non-typical offerings.

    The food was absolutely delicious! The only thing that was weird was the music, which was completely out of synch with a Moroccan restaurant (Elton John and other mellow rock and pop music). The staff said it was a conscious choice because it's a contemporary restaurant and they didn't want to "overdo" the Moroccan theme.

    Excellent food and very good, if somewhat fast service. The evening was perfect. Having spent some time in Marrakech, I venture to say that the menu at Atlas is : "Nouvelle cuisine Marocaine", not "traditional" . We'll be back to sample more of their fare, and I hope to fine a good bstilla on the menu next time ;-).

    Lovely, absolutely charming room. Very good food -- the flat bread and roasted eggplant were standouts. Also had the chicken tangine which was very good but not outstanding. The service started off well with a very warm welcome and our coats hung up. Nice. But we did not order as many dishes as our waiter recommended and he seem put out by this. As three women we don't need five dishes plus a large shared tangine. In fact, even though we ordered fewer dishes, we still couldn't finish it all. Our waiter was definitely less friendly after that and whisked plates off our table with notable abruptness.

    Quality ingredients and authentic dishes, we definitely appreciated our dinner, although it was really expensive for what we ordered. Unfortunately the kitchen is open to the main dining area and the entire place smells a LOT. the place will definitely need a more appropriate ventilation system: the smell of cooked meat coming from the kitchen was almost nauseating, so strong that all our clothes and coats smelled for days after leaving the restaurant.

    Really good experience. Seating is quite limited so make your reservation well in advance. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was really cozy. We had the briouat, tagine of lamb, and the chocolate & cardamom tarte. All were delicious. The restaurant is right beside a residential area so it's great if you're looking to have a nice meal and avoid the busy-ness of downtown.

    An enjoyable meal of interesting and fresh flavours. We particularly enjoyed the Amlou with Harcha. The whitefish tagine was great, and our servers recommendation to have it with the bulgur salad were spot on - a perfect fresh contrast to the richness of the tagine. The eggplant was also good, but we probably had a little too much food! There was no room for dessert.

    A nice newish restaurant in the annex. The food is Moroccan inspired, and quite good. I would not say it the best Moroccan I’ve had, but I lived in Paris for a while, so my standards are high. Prices are fair for a good restaurant

    This is not marocain food... more like fusion marocain food. (Only bcs is using marocain spices) My lamb ribs were so fat that I couldn’t eat it. Also What marocain restaurant doesn’t have a lamb t’agite or merguez? Unfortunately there is no good authentic marocain restaurant in Toronto so to cook fusion marocain dishes instead ... is a ‘crime’

    We had an early seating. The restaurant is very small so there are 2 seatings. The appetizer was brought out right away. Before we put our fork down the main arrived. It was 50 minutes into the dining experience when we finished the main course. The dessert menu was on the table before we finished our wine. We didn’t stay for dessert because we were too rushed.
