Quetzal

CAN$51 and over
Mexican
At Quetzal, we celebrate regional Mexican cuisine, inspired by traditional flavours and cooking styles, all cooked over a 28 foot-long open fire that runs the span of the hot line.  Traditional moles, sauces and little-known native ingredients are transported to Toronto and infused with the bounty of local Ontario and Canadian produce, for a one-of-a-kind dining experience. Quetzal is located at the corner of College & Bathurst, at the edges of four Toronto hotspot neighbourhoods: Little Italy, Kensington Market, Harbord Village, and the Annex.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Steve Molnar

  • Award icon

    MICHELIN 1 Star

    2022

Fire-kissed flavours from a wood-burning grill and lesser-seen Mexican dishes that go beyond tacos and tostadas earned Quetzal a MICHELIN star. A creative cocktail menu centred on tequila and mezcal, plus a curvy, eye-catching ceiling that channels a Mexican market, complete the restaurant’s ultra-cool vibe.

    It’s very good but not sure it’s worth the money. The service was very good. You’re sitting on a bench for a top notch restaurant!

    One of the best meals I’ve ever had. Tasting menus at $125 is tremendous value. Unbelievable staff and overall effort from the team

    We opted for the curated menu, which offers off the menu items. The food was delicious, well presented and plentiful. The service was fast, highly professional and welcoming. We tried two cocktails suggested by the server and they were well presented and very good. At the end of the dinner, we stopped to chat with the chef, who was kind enough not only to pay attention to us but he went beyond and shared his cooking passion and proudly talked about his staff. Highly recommended.

    Honestly everything was pretty phenomenal. If I’m nitpicking maybe it was a bit chilly but I would weather a blizzard to eat/drink here! 5/5!

    The dishes were just ok and it did not have a Mexican feel to it as intended.

    One of our favourite restaurants in Canada. Full stop. The smoke of the fires in the kitchen welcomes you when you walk in. It sets the stage for the food magic to come. The food is creative and flavourful. Notwithstanding it is Michelin-rated, it punches well above its star rating

The staff is knowledgeable and adds to the warm ambiance, making each visit memorable. Definitely a must-visit for a taste of refined Mexican dishes in Toronto!"
