Maiz focuses on a proposal of contemporary Latin food. We make our table the best meeting point with the Latin flavours.
Maiz honors the corn as one of the most important and tradicional ingredients in Latin cuisine, providing a whole new experience to the guest with produts made out organic corn locally grown.
After working in Europe and some prestigious restaurants in Toronto, Chef Fernando combines healthy food with a delicious and unfogettable experience.
We seasoned our offerings taking things a little beyond the obvious.
Maiz brings a new style for restaurants in Toronto and north,"make it simple, make it good". Our food is based on fresh organic ingredients, which takes our food to the next level being the healthy and adding a delicious latin option to the city.

Service was. Waitress was helpful explaining what the food items were as it is mainly in Spanish? Would not recommend the salsas and chips. Bowls were to small to really dip the chips in. My main was good and hot. My guest ordered the tortilla soup, wich was a little salty and not really soup consistency. She said she might order it again, but ask them to make it more liquidy. It was kind of like nachos ingredrients in a bowl. I would return.

Maiz has been my favorite restaurant since I moved to Toronto, the food is incredible, the amount of food you get for what you pay is great, everything in the menu is SO GOOD! The waitress is always really nice and friendly to us, I would recommend this place to anybody that wants to try something different and that you're going to like it 100% sure. Last time I was there it was my birthday and they gave me a free dessert, I'm so great full and happy with everything on this place. Takes me back home.

- Server ignored us when we joined our friends that had already arrived.
- Had to flag her again to order appetizers
- and again for a glass for my beer that came in a can
- and again to order our mains
- and again for a glass for water (brought a jug, no glasses)
- and again for another beer

She spent most of her time skipping the songs playing on her iPad.

Took away from the great simple food.

The first thing I thought after ordering three tacos was that I would have to eat another meal somewhere else right after. Portion sizes are tiny here! Also the corn bread sandwich sounded cool but the execution was terrible. It fell apart and the sauce dropped through the basket.

Good quality food and attentive service. A bit pricier than expected but would go back. I also appreciated that there were plenty of substitutions possible for people with gluten intolerance. Only major negative is the few vegetarian options. I understand that Mexican food is more meat-centric (I've stayed in Mexico City in the past) but it would help if there were vegetarian options added that included vegetarian proteins like beans or soy proteins etc. rather than just providing vegetables and cheese.

The Elote was better than I could have ever imagined. After ordering one, we had to order another, haha! One wasn't enough. The 5 kinds of arepitas is something I would order again, one of the best on the menu and so worth it! The spicy shrimp tequila had big, fat, fresh shrimp so it was also a good order. The fried squid tacos were not very good compared to the rest of the items we ordered, I wouldn't do it again.
