We love sitting down to a family meal at a great restaurant. It gives us time to catch up, tell stories and share some delicious food! There are a lot of amazing family-friendly restaurant options in and around the Davisville Village neighbourhood. You can enjoy food from all over the world here. To help you plan your next night out with the family, here are some of the best family-friendly restaurants near Davisville Village
A beautiful interior, comfortable seats and exceptional Italian fare make Grazie Ristorante (2373 Yonge Street) a great choice for your next family meal on the town. There are plenty of vegetarian options at this restaurant too – our favourite is the Tasca ($18.50). It’s a dish of fresh pasta filled with ricotta, spinach, mushrooms and brie, then baked in creamy tomato porcini sauce. Don’t forget to ask for a chili oil drizzle for a bit of extra flavour! The Bruschetta appetizer ($7) is a great way to start a meal, while the Tiramisu ($8) (with mascarpone cheese, fresh cream and ladyfingers dipped in espresso and liqueurs) is the perfect way to finish a memorable meal. Kids will love the Chocolate Chip Banana Cake ($8).
When your family is in the mood for authentic Mexican food at very fair prices, make sure you payMariachi’s Restaurant (2084 Yonge Street) a visit. This cozy, family run establishment has been a staple in the neighbourhood for years. The food is simple and incredible. Start with an order of warm tortilla chips and guacamole ($8.95), then move on to the Mole Chicken ($15.95). It has a complex, rich flavour, but it’s not spicy. The Mole (pronounced Mole-eh) contains over 40 ingredients – including chocolate!
Granite Brewery & Restaurant (245 Eglinton Avenue East) was a pioneer in the craft brewing scene when they opened their doors in 1991. They brew a wide array of their own beers on-site. During the warmer weather, their front and rear patios are the place to be — whether it’s for a quick drink or a full meal. The menu is classic pub fare. To start, you can’t go wrong with the Butter Chicken Pizza ($10). The Walnut Crusted Baked Salmon Fillet ($18) is a great main course, and their burgers and sandwiches will please everyone. If you haven’t already, read our feature article on Granite Brewery from earlier this year.
Attention all pizza lovers, Pi Co (2177 Yonge Street) has some of the best pizzas in town! Forget about trying to get the entire family to agree to the same toppings, at Pi Co you can get personal sized pizzas with unlimited toppings for just $13 each. Margherita pizzas are just $9. They bake their pies in an 800 degree oven for just 90 seconds! They know how much you love pizza, so they have them for dessert, too! Try a Sweet Pi with unlimited toppings for only $6.
Copacabana Brazilian Steak House
When you visit the Copacabana Brazilian Steak House (150 Eglinton Avenue East) be sure to come hungry. This all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steak House offers a fun family experience and great food — especially if you like grilled meat. There is also a buffet full of salads and cheese, but the real focus is the meat. Your server will give you a pair of tongs and a paper button. Flip the button to one side and the meat carvers will come with more fine cuts of meat. There is a lot of meat to sample — from top sirloin, to Parmesan filet mignon and picanha (a Brazilian specialty). There are over 16 cuts to choose from. Save some room for dessert – they specialize in cinnamon roasted pineapples that are out of this world!
We hope that you and your family dine at one of these local restaurants. We know that having a few favourite spots for family meals in your neighbourhood makes it feel like home.
