Restaurant Review: Le Papillon (1)

View Larger Map

Le Papillon Restaurant Front

  Le Papillon opened in 1974 as Toronto's first crêperi and provides a casual French dining experience to Torontonians. After several moves within the historic St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood, they have now re-opened in an Old Town Toronto building that perfectly complements their French brasserie atmosphere. The menu continues to deliver old favourites such as French onion soup and Crêpes Bretonnes, while providing a newly expanded selection of steaks, as well as duck, seafood and pasta dishes. Also not to be missed is their list of homemade classic French desserts.

Specials of the Day

  Le Papillon has won numerous awards over the years, most notably 'Best French Restaurant' in Where Magazine for five years running. They continually strive to provide a relaxed, upscale and white linen approach to fine dining with an emphasis on excellence. I took my kids including my second oldest daughter who graduated from George Brown College last week. The service was excellent with an apparently French waiter who tolerated my offspring’s predilection for sending back wine and food that is not up to their standards.
