ALERT: We do offer curb-side patio dining for the summer season, "weather permitting", and with a limited number of tables. We'll resume indoor dinning when authorized by the Ontario Government.

Enjoy a taste of France at Le Baratin, 1600 Dundas West, with a unique menu and an enchanting atmosphere. 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 au citron, Mousse au Chocolat, and Crème Brulée.
For Brunch, 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.

Wow! This was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Everything was cooked thoughtfully and to perfection; the meat was juicy and tender, the vegetables were flavourful and the perfect texture, and OMG their homemade boursin?! TO DIE FOR. To top it off, the wine list and cocktails were excellent, and the staff was just the sweetest, most attentive ever. They made us feel right at home, and were prompt and professional, but also extremely friendly. 5 stars from me. I’m already planning my next visit.

This was my second visit and it was as good as the first! I had octopus and rack of lamb the first time, mussels and duck the second. All very yummy. Portions adequate, bigger than most newer restaurants. I’m so happy this restaurant is a 10- minute walk from my house! Highly recommended!

A great spot with a terrific wine list and a French bistro atmosphere. My go-to for a dinner meet-up with a friend.
The music selection is on point, and not blaring, so you can actually have a conversation.

A Parisien experience - inspired cocktails (we enjoyed a sidecar and kir) and ultra varied wine list (we chose a house red Pinot from Languedoc).

Prix fixe - easy to choose a delightful dinner from French standards and evening specials. Try the duck rillette with toast & gerkins or the house salad (arugula, Puy lentils, tomato). Steak frites - divine and duck breast with root vegetables and leek tart -supreme.

Attentive staff - a fantastic night out.

It was a perfect evening to dine on the patio. Le Baratin's prix fixe menu is so great, because the meal comes together in perfect portions. We started with the dip plate (and both the homemade boursin and baba ganoush were excellent) and the daily special of brandade was great too: I think it is a perfect addition to the fall menu! For mains we had the daily fish and the vegetarian tart - both just delicious. Great service and an interesting wine list - such a nice way to spend the last Sunday evening of summer. Highly recommend!
