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.

    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.

    We had an incredible meal at Quetzal, once again. This time we went with the curated tasting menu, and I appreciated being able to tell the team our likes and dislikes before the experience began. Every single course was an explosion of flavors - Flavors that I could have never imagined would work well together, but they did very well. I think it’ll have to be part of the rotation during every Toronto trip of ours. The one thing I could do without is the repeated wiping down of our table, but I know that’s considered upscale service :)

    Excellent experience as a first time quetzal diner, beautiful and exciting cocktails and menu items, made to order and able to accommodate dietary needs. Every course we had was exciting to behold in presentation and in flavour. The foh staff was exceptional and friendly, with a high focus on details of service. Looking forward to a repeat visit.

    Amazing experience! The sikil pak, the scallop ceviche, and the epazote raspado (so happy we didn’t skip dessert!) were some of the best dishes we’ve ever tasted. Definitely deserving of their Michelin star.

    Had a fabulous time! This was my second time to Quetzal with my partner, for his birthday. The food was exquisite. We did curated menus and loved that each one was tailored to our dietary needs (i.e., carnivore and pescetarian). The octopus and scallops were highlights. The desserts that came our way were so delightful as well. We sat at the bar and were well taken care of with great wine suggestions and tastings. Definitely a sophisticated and unique dining experience. We can't wait to go back!
