My 2 cents worth...

I came on here quite some time ago to get suggestions on where to dine for my birthday (in the Queen/Spadina area)... many of you had mentioned Peter Pan Bistro, as the place to go. So I did...
I will NEVER go back there again! To start I had the potato and leek soup. That was ok... but hardly worth 5 bucks!!! For dinner I had chicken and mashed potatos... how can you go wrong with that??? The potoatos were tasteless! The chicken was also lacking.
For a pricey dinner... I would NEVER suggest coming here!

A few other places I thoroughly enjoyed were:

1. Harbour Sixty Steakhouse: yes... it's VERY expensive. But well worth it! The steaks are cooked to perfection and the sauces are absolutely delicious! The atmosphere is cozy. You can't go wrong here!

2. Adega (on Elm st.): This small Portuguese restaurant was the best I've ever gone to! The waitor was very helpful and informative. The food was very tastey. The desserts are few (but you must try the Portuguese dessert, Natas de ceu... it means "Creams of the heaven"... it's served in a Martini glass! Very cool). Highly recommended!

3. Lolita's Lust (on the Danforth): The atmosphere is quite interesting... quite dark (if it bothers you, you can ask them to turn the light up a bit... they won't mind at all). They were also very informative. The food was very tastey and cooked to perfection. Desserts were good... wine list is extensive.

4. Courtyard Cafe (in the Windsor Arms Hotel): I visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and I was quite impressed. I had the rack of lamb... it was SOOOO good!! The mashed potatos were very tastey. The presentation was excellent. The desserts were even better. If you decide to come to this restaurant, leave room for dessert!!

Well... that's my 2 cents worth.
