Quetzal celebrates regional Mexican cuisine, inspired by traditional flavours and cooking styles, all cooked over a breathtaking 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.

    This is an absolute gem of a restaurant. I was part of a food tour exploring the trend of cooking with fire and Quetzal gave us the most refined and educated representation of this trend. The only thing that adequately complimented the chefs talent was the impeccable service. This team from the back of house to the front delivers the experience we all strive for as hospitality providers. Much respect Quetzal.

    Our party of 5 had a wonderful time. The space is beautiful and unique - just needs a bit of noise dampening and it will be perfect. The food is delicious and prepared with care to detail. A great place for a special occasion.

    Very friendly staff. Food is mostly great. $300 for two people who had 3 cocktails (altogether not each), one starter, 1 masa, 2 veggies and 1 main(sea bream). The asparagus was cooked perfectly but sauce is overpowering. Mushrooms were good. The scallop ceviche and empanada were outstanding. Sea bream was cooked well and was tasty. Overall a very good meal.

    The smell, food, service, cocktails.. everything was amazing. Unlike any restaurant in Toronto. Pricy but TOTALLY worth it!! Great for a date night! Our server was so chill and informative and guided us through a tasting menu, where the amount of food served was absolutely perfect. Definitely get the octopus I’ve legit never had an octopus that tender in my life. We were cutting it with a damn fork!!

    This was beautiful dining experience, I was on a date it was perfect for two but I can see it being a great place to come as a group of friends or a celebratory family dinner. The ambiance was amazing the lighting was moody every server was very well trained. the food was cook and prepared and presented to perfection.

    It was good, but somehow lacked. You know when a restaurant becomes so busy that the dishes are edited to be made in quantity and fast? That is very much the vibe of the dishes this time. Probably won’t go back!

    My absolute favourite restaurant in the City. Matthew and the crew take care of every detail, making the experience so special. The flavours, scents, sounds and beauty of the restaurant create an atmosphere that makes you feel like you’ve been transported out of Toronto. And, leave room for dessert. Trust me.

    I am not a review person but this experience deserves to be shared. I am nothing but blown away from the quality of this restaurant. Every part of the night was great and and somehow constantly improving through out the night. I’d like to thank Matthew, the host, the chefs and the team of servers for helping me give my wife the best dinner anniversary we’ve had. Impecable. No one should miss ordering the Empanada, the Secreto and the coconut dessert.

    They have some truly special dishes that you may not have tried at other mexican restaurants. We had the huitlacoche, runner beans, scallop ceviche and flat iron steak. Everything was cooked to perfection and very tasty even though I can’t tolerate spicy heat at all. At our server’s suggestion, we tried their handmade tortillas which were my favourite as they were soft, pillowy and warm and went well with everything we ordered. Sitting at the chef’s counter was a fun experience too! Would definitely come again !
