Heating is limited so please dress accordingly.

We take our Covid-19 precautions seriously to ensure you can relax whilst in our care.

We have also opened a Wine Shop in the front of our restaurant for you to browse for a bottle for you to drink with us or take home!

Fabulous feast of winter favorites on a delightfully decorated Christmas Market themed patio. Loved the wood burning fire!

One of my favourite places to dine. Whether it be enjoying time with family, catching up with friends or working quietly in a booth on my laptop. The menu is delicious and their wine list always offers something new and exciting for everyone!

Peter Pan is a staple of Toronto and they have been around for many years. The food never disappoints and the service is first class. This place is perfect for date or special occasion and you want to do something special without breaking the bank.

Loved the patio. They have installed pexiglass between the coming up from the booths which increases safety in COVID era but is not intrusive in anyway. Have a fantastic stock of wine for sale to those who wish to take home.

We chose to eat from the brunch menu and were very happy with our meals.

I had been to Peter Pan once pre COVID. Was looking forward to going back and fully intend to go back again.

They sat us in 100% shade. Canopy covers whole patio. Great service and food. Crab cakes and squash salad excellent. Plum crumble was hot and excellent for desert. Nice and quiet at lunch time. Sound system was off which was very peaceful.

We went for our anniversary, recently, during COVID. Outside patio tables were spaced well & everyone mindful of precautions. Our service was excellent. The food we ordered was excellent. Nice outdoor feel & vibe. Only thing would be to have a few more food options so that we'd have more reason to return.

Sat on the upper patio, on a weekday for lunch, was really nice and quiet. Had the burger, was very juicy, fresh & flavorful and had a nice bun. I like that you can order the burger without the fries because that was enough for me!

Subpar food however, did so with the others. I’d hate to play this card but being to only table of color, I’d hate to say there was a prejudicial intent behind the lack of service. Underwhelming service and food at Peter Pan! They had 3 1/2 to make improvements and still failed.

I do not recommend this restaurant !!!

Probably my favourite all time Sunday brunch spot in downtown Toronto. Love the Eggs Bennie, and shakshuka. Their evening menu is lovely and the fish dishes are always top quality. I feel the quality is a step up above the price. Not cheap cheap but really great value. The service is amazing and Nick, the somm, really knows his stuff when it comes to wine recommendations.
Also, if wine is your thing, the selection in the wine shop is amazing. Lots of European wines too so it's worth going just for wine shopping. Tip - pay for take out wine separately from meals otherwise it's tricky to add the right amount of tip.

A Toronto establishment, Peter Pan bistro serves up a varying and well-curated wine list, delicious food and a charming ambience within it's historic walls and it's intimate patio.
The wine menu showcases wines that intrigue the adventurous but satisfy with classic varietals. The food is fresh and delicious. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and passionate. Equipped with classic style, the dining room showcases original pew seating, the patio is multilevel and well-kept. Even it's restrooms are not without their charm, featuring original fixtures from days gone by. Nostalgia meets modern dining.

Not my first time to Peter Pan. It was my birthday today (which they knew through OpenTable) so I wanted to go back to a favourite. I love it there.... Or did at least.
Our server, (the only server to the 4 whole tables in the restaurant,) was never around, never on the patio overseeing her customers. She never checked in with us on our meal, never offered another round, because she wasn't there. Once she'd served us our food, she said she'd be back with another bottle of water for the table seeing as I'd drunk the entire bottle and it was 32 degrees today, she never came back. I physically had to get up and go inside to search for a member of staff around 35 mins later when I needed another round of drinks.... I didn't want to be a complainer after covid, but there were 8 customers, it's not as though they were rushed. We were all incredibly ignored, we weren't the only guests to go inside to look for staff.... And they didn't even seem to notice their mistakes.
The food is always good there... But it is in a lot of other places too... Terrible birthday dinner, the hostess didn't say anything, no candle at the table, no dessert options.... And to top it off, as we were leaving at 9.30pm (as the last customers) they turned ON the patio fairy lights
All in all a poor evening

This was my first patio dining experience after Covid began, and it could not have been better! The staff knew exactly what to do, explained everything to us, had a clear plan and procedures in place and the quality of the food and service was great, even down to the wine recommendation. Thanks for a great brunch!

Maybe it’s the protocol now? Eggs Benedict were fully cooked, it didn’t taste that nice.
Also, we ordered miami ribs, it’s kinda hard to chew.
Patio is very nice and tables are far from one another. Hope the food will get better in the future.

So glad these guys are open again!! Food was fantastic as always, super nice and friendly staff. My only gripe, and something that's out of their control, is that there's clearly a garbage bin near the back walls of the patio, and on a hot day we kept getting strong whiffs of garbage odor... Definitely put a bit of a damper on things, but I suspect that on a typical day this wouldn't be an issue. Also, if you get onto the rooftop part of the patio this is even less likely to be relevant.

We chose to use takeout containers during our first 5 days to reduce the risks that exist in this Covid-19 environment & allow us to deliver an experience in what we saw as the safest way possible. Weighed against the inconvenience of our guests having to use takeout containers to eat, we made a choice to to ensure our guests had the confidence that we were taking the situation seriously & allow our Team time to adjust to the safety precautions we put in place.

Winterlicious Lunch Review:
I have always enjoyed Peter Pan's tartare for a quick lunch, but this really blew me away. The selection of options paired beautifully with each other, we were shown fantastic service including the manager taking the time to discuss wine recommendations with us even though we were looking for the cheapest range of bottles on a 1/2 price wine day. Portions were plentiful and a steal for that price. Thanks so much for the dining experience!
