Fabulous night out at Mira with my husband. Love Mira - the location makes it so neat to walk to. Terrific decor, it reminds me a bit of El Catrin. Great vibe in the restaurant, but not so loud that it overpowered our conversation . Delicious and inventive food, attentive and fun server, fun music. A perfect night out.

The 1.5 hr. Time limit isn’t enforced, so we had to wait for our table at the bar for 40 minutes until we complained and were given a table and a round of free shots for the wait. Having travelled a lot in Peru, eaten at cheaper Peruvian restaurants in Toronto, this didn’t cut it for the prices. The flavours were lacking in the meats, ceviche and tuna tostada were good but small for the price. The octopus (also small portion) had a sauce with cumin in it which seemed odd. The yucca frita came after we finished everything else and the green sauce served with it tasted like plastic. The space is very loud and the tables are crowded together. On a positive note, staff were very kind. Won’t be back unfortunately.

We ate at the bar. Super comfy padded bar stools. Food excellent for those who enjoy small plates of unusual and excellent offerings. Five stars for all the menu items we tried. Not inexpensive and as with many fine do restaurants in Toronto, wine-by-the-glass prices are insanely high. However in this place at least the chard was excellent and far above what I have found at similar prices elsewhere. I loved this restaurant and will go again often.

Food was tasty and our server . SO AMAZING !! I think her name was Sam ? She was so attentive and on point ! I would be on my last sip of water and look over and it would be topped up . You can tell she’s been doing this professionally and understands hospitality. I’d come back and will recommend for sure !

Waaay too loud in the lower area. Had to get moved to the section by the kitchen to avoid a headache and be able to actually enjoy the ambiance somewhat.

Foods great.

We were seated on the patio. Love the ambiance, very romantic with string lightening. Food was amazing, tapas style (expect tiny portions). I would highly recommend Mira. They did a excellent job of showcasing Peruvian food. The cerdo (sucking pig) and Mira ceviche were mouthwatering delicious!!! The pisco sour was also my favourite.

The portions are very small and prices are very high. They recommend ordering 3 dishes a person, so roughly 60-75$ per person just for food. Half the menu is raw ceviche. I had the shortrib skewer, con setas (fried rice) and yucca fries. The shortrib skewer was nothing special. The con setas tasted like any other fried rice dish you could order from a takeout place. The yucca fries were amazing though The beer on tap is amazing (I forget the name). The music it pop hits from all the ages, which doesn't fit in with the theme (The Grease soundtrack kinda defeats the purpose of Peruvian Tapas). The front entrance is down a narrow alley lit with lanterns which is out of the way and intimidating. They have a door that opens right onto the main streetway, but instead that is used for the patio and you are not supposed to enter the restaurant that way.

Absolutely amazing experience. We went there on September 18 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Funny thing is, we didnt mention it until the end of the meal, but we were treated exceptionally well. This place is hip, trendy, but not pretentious. Cool vibe inside and on the patio. Food is absolutely exceptional. We did the chefs menu. It must have been about 7 or so courses.
All the dishes were great, but my wife really liked the seafood (salmon and ceviche).
We met the chef, and she was such a pleasure. Mentioned she's only as strong as her great team. That's authenticity.
Amazing experience, highly recommend.

The food was excellent. It is a little too pricy for the portions for some of the smaller dishes. The lamb shoulder, corn side and chocolate dessert were my favorite. The lamb was the only thing priced well.

It's entrance is not on Wellington st. After u cross spadina Wellington st becomes dark and doesn't look like there is any commercial activity there. But restaurant entrance in in an alleyway, a wide and brightly lit alleyway though.
The sign for mira is also very small. (Its opposite a big sign saying ping pong)

Staff was very friendly. We sat in the small patio outside which had heaters installed.

Food was yummy and superb. The ceviches are amped up with great flavors and some give hints of nobu and zuma. Some of the food is spicy.
Definitely recommend the tuna ceviche and mango ceviche (more like a tart dessert though)
Beet salad was exceptional.

We had trout main with corn side. The corn was yummy.

The plates were small servings, a tad pricey for the serving, however the food was great, ambience is fabulous. Our server was super nice. The best part for us was the music, it brought the whole evening together. Fabulous DJ, fabulous 80' s 90s music. Overall a great night.

Overall lovely date, however I would characterize the food as wanting. The ceviche was blamed despite all efforts to dress it up as some form of Barcelona tapas. The rib eye with cassavas was cold and was seared like a watery poached egg. The purple potato’s associated with this dish would have been easily eclipsed by cold fries at Jack Astor’s.

With all that said, the bartender was dynamic and engaging and I hope he lands on his feet after this review.

Best regards,

Raj

I took a friend there for her birthday dinner, and the whole experience was great. Our server was very progressional and personable, as well as knowledgeable about the menu.

We ordered an entree and 3 appetizers / sides and the we were nicely surprised at how filling the portions were. Finished off with the Cachangas Peruanas for dessert which was interesting but not my favourite. I would definitely go back to try out more next time!

The food was amazing, the drinks too, they really manage to capture the essence of Peruvian flavours, just loved it. try at least 4 different dishes to get the variety, and I assure you it will be a party in your mouth. Be sure to have the Pulpo and the Tostada Morada.
Only thing is I would have loved to see a Causa in the menu.

Food was fantastic! My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and were very pleased with what we ordered. The service was good too. Our waitress was very friendly. Only thing was we did indicate the occasion for the reservation to be for our anniversary and there was no acknowledgment of it. That would've been a nice touch! Either way, we will definitely come back and recommend to others!
