My wife and I recently came back from Barcelona and are “food” people. We like to hunt out restaurants that are delicious but not grossly overpriced. LaVinia’s was tasty, but for a 4 tapas meal for two with two drinks cost us $95 before tip....More

We keep coming back for the delicious tapas, paella and everything else on the menu. Be prepared to feel welcomed into this cosy restaurant by the owner Fernando.

Excellent food, authentic dishes, good wine list. It feels very much like Montréal or even Spain. Go easy on the tapas it could get expensive. Tapas are a less expensive way of eating in Spain , not when you get them abroad. Mind you, well...More

Food and service is incredible! No need to travel the world when the best of Spanish cuisine is at your door. We are always extremely pleased. I don’t go back often to restaurants but this is one of few exceptions.

We were hosted in a Hotel close to the Toronto Airport and found LaVinia near and well reviewed on TripAdvisor. Appetizers (Tapas), like Polvo a la gallega and Carpacchio were excellent. Main dish was Paella Valenciana (the complete one with seafood chicken and pork), and...More

One on my favourite restaurants! Atmosphere and staff are great. Service was fantastic. The tapas was delicious and the seafood paella was cooked perfectly. Great wine list. Would definitely recommend a visit!

Etobicoke is a relaxed area along the Humber River.
It's saturated with green spaces and conservatories,
making it a premier destination for outdoor sports,
hiking, and nature walks. Its abundance of parkland
and lakes makes it a typical spot for fishing,
picnicking, and camping out, especially in warmer
months. The peaceful area is also enjoyed by families,
who appreciate its boardwalks and sports facilities.
