Madrina Bar y Tapas, Toronto, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I wish I could take credit for finding this restaurant, but that will have to go to my Mom! We were looking for a dinner option that was a little different, and she succeeded at finding a great spot. Madrina Bar y Tapas is located in The Distillery history district in Toronto. Our server was [...]

Trattoria Mercatto, Toronto, Canada ⭐️⭐️

Trattoria Mercatto, Toronto, Canada ⭐️⭐️

After a long day of shopping, my Mom and myself thought Trattoria Mercatto was a convenient spot to have dinner as it is located directly inside the Eaton Centre in Toronto. The 2 level interior of the restaurant is absolutely stunning! I am a sucker for exposed brick walls, concrete floors and extra high ceilings. [...]

The Wild Horses Pub & Eatery, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Wild Horses Pub & Eatery, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Located next to Bell Island Ferry in Portugal Cove, The Wild Horses Pub & Eatery is nothing fancy. The interior reminded me of a basement bar in someone’s house, aka tacky. Their menu consists of classic pub food, burgers, sandwiches, wings, fish and chips etc. Given their name, obviously this was no surprise. The lady [...]

The Salthouse, St.John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Salthouse, St.John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Salthouse is a fairly new restaurant to the Downtown St. John’s area. It opened back in March 2019, my partner and I stumbled across it while looking for a place to have lunch. Come to find out, we had been there a few days after they first opened. We were surprised that we hadn’t [...]

Olivers, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Olivers, St. John’s, Canada   ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

After a less than average experience my last time at Olivers (approximately 2 months ago), I decided to give it another chance, and I’m happy I did! After the holiday season, it seems the staff at Oliver’s is back up to their normal high standards of food and service.  Olivers dining room is fairly small, [...]

Mallard Cottage, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mallard Cottage, St. John’s, Canada                       ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Mallard cottage is the hidden gem in a tiny fishing community minutes from downtown St. John’s, NL, Canada. Driving by, you wouldn’t think it is a restaurant since it looks like a little cottage. Don’t be fooled by its appearance, Mallard Cottage is one of the highest rated restaurants in St. John’s, and with good [...]

Exchange on Hollis, Halifax, Canada ⭐️⭐️

Exchange on Hollis, Halifax, Canada                                   ⭐️⭐️

After a good experience my last time going to the Exchange on Hollis for lunch, I thought I would check it out for dinner during my last visit to Halifax. Unfortunately it appears that the quality of the food has dropped significantly since my last visit before Christmas. Upon entering, the hosts seemed to be [...]

Brown Hound Public House, Halifax, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Brown Hound Public House, Halifax, Canada        ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Brown Hound Public House is Halifax’s hidden gem! Since Agricola street is always busy and packed with houses and other small businesses, I had actually driven by many times before without noticing it. I am so disappointed that I didn’t take notice sooner! As soon as you walk inside, you’re greeted with such warmth [...]

Red Asian Fusion, Halifax, Canada ⭐️⭐️

Red Asian Fusion, Halifax, Canada                                   ⭐️⭐️

Being one of the only restaurants open on the February holiday in Halifax, my sister-in-law and I gave it a chance, and it smelled delicious! Never hearing anything about it, and without a Trip Advisor page, we had no idea what to expect. The dining room was like any other Asian restaurant you’d find in [...]

Fort Amherst, St. John’s, Canada ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fort Amherst, St. John’s, Canada                           ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fort Amherst is a fairly new restaurant (2015) located in the Churchill Square area of St. John’s, NL. Upon entering, you do lose quite a bit of light as there is only a window in the front of the restaurant and the walls are painted black. Needless to say it isn’t the prettiest place to [...]
