About Us

Toronto's best romantic restaurant

Rated ‘Excellent’ by Zagat, Lolita’s Restaurant & Bar is a discreet, eastside gem – and one of Toronto’s most romantic restaurants.

Here’s what you need to know: 

Established in 1996, Lolita’s Lust” has served up delicious, 5 Star dining to in-town celebs seeking a discreet dinner on the quiet. Any night of the week bohemian creative types, east side locals and executive fast-trackers fill the cozy booths or relax at the bar before a candlelight dinner on immaculate white table cloths.

Lolita’s is cozy and romantic but it has a special energy that makes it the Danforth’s best restaurant and bar.

Chef Elton Cecco keeps it fresh and creative, building on an acclaimed menu designed to satisfy – and delight. It may be the most romantic restaurant in Toronto but at Lolita’s, people fall in love with the food.

Owner Sam Scanga and General Manager Sydney offer a warm welcome and greet guests by name. The servers keep it friendly and loose, paying attention to the little things that make for a perfect night out. The service is part of the Lolita’s magic.

Lolita’s Restaurant is big enough to keep the action at the bar interesting but with enough romantic corners you can find a quiet moment with that special some one. On the weekends Djs spin an eclectic mix of classic and alternative sounds.

Is it the most romantic restaurant in Toronto? You be the judge!
