Enjoy a taste of France at Le Baratin, 1600 Dundas West, with a unique menu and an enchanting atmosphere. Escape the bustle of Toronto in the morning with the delight of a homemade croissant, or take an imaginary plane in the evening with the culinary experience of our French inspired menu.
Food prepared at Le Baratin is indeed classic with a modern twist. Classic in a sense of ‘old school’: our sauces are all made in-house, with a veal-based stock. These days, that is very rare. Jean likes the good old way of preparing food - truly, the proper way! Moreover, there is not a bistro in France that doesn’t serve at least 2 out of the 3 desserts we offer: Tarte Tatin, Mousse au Chocolat, and Creme Caramel.
For lunch, the Croque Monsieur is a must-have. French peasant, or street food, is uniquely reinvented here.
Our wine list is mid-priced and extensively curated from France; we offer the best value for the best price. Or, try any of our other cocktails!

Spectacular experience. Enjoyed every bite of my meal. I was blown away with the service from the staff, they were extremely kind and observant. We definitely want to make this a regular dinner spot. Not to mention the price isn't that bad for the incredible food you get

Very classic french menu, the Prix fix was well worth it. I had the magret de canard and my friend had the potato tart and they were perfect, highly recommend both. All the staff spoke both French and English. The ambience was very nice and the lighting and decor were very charming. Would definitely dine here again.

I went here with a party of 6 for my 45th birthday, and EVERYTHING we tried was delicious: every appetizer, main, and all 4 desserts. Classic French cuisine with modern flair in a cute, cosy ambiance. There is a ridiculously well priced prix fixe menu, your choice of 2 or 3 courses, with options for vegetarians as well. I loved the homemade boursin and hummus; my friends raved about the rillettes de canard, the salade nicoise, the duck special and the steak frites. I had the ratatouille provencale with polenta and it was delicious. We shared the creme brulee, the chocolate mousse with amaretto, the poached peaches with ice cream, and the lemon trifle. None of us could decide on a favourite. Just try them all ;D
Our server Laura, was warm, charming and funny; the service was perfect.
I went here for a birthday with friends, but it would also be great for a romantic dinner, a business meeting, or your parents' anniversary. I can't say enough. We will all definitely be back.

Le Baratin is our go-to French restaurant in TO. Food is delicious (although menu doesn’t change much), portions are generous & prices are very reasonable. Service is friendly & efficient, and the food comes quickly.

Can’t recommend it highly enough!

I'm a repeat customer to Le Baratin because it is excellent. Great food, value, service, and a pleasing ambience. Dining on the street was noisy due to many big trucks and motorcycles but otherwise, this evening was 5star all the way.

Amazing experience! Can't believe we didn't find this place sooner. Authentic French food with a casual but refined atmosphere. M wife and I came for a special occasion (anniversary) and were not disappointed! The service (from Laura) was excellent as well.

First, I live in the neighbourhood so pre-pandemic I was a regular. This was our first dinner out in 5 months and as expected Le Barati did not disappoint.The food was great and consistent with past performance.

Transported to another place in the world with curbside dining, this little french bistro did not disappoint with the food and wine. The flavours brought me back to Paris as did the wine. Very reasonably priced wines, and with a prix fixe menu, it makes this place a steal. Good service and friendly staff. It was a wonderful meal, and made for a wonderful ending to a day of birthday celebrations. We will be back.
