Enjoy a taste of France at Le Baratin, 1600 Dundas West, with a unique menu and an enchanting atmosphere. Escape the bustle of Toronto in the morning with the delight of a homemade croissant, or take an imaginary plane in the evening with the culinary experience of our French inspired menu.
Food prepared at Le Baratin is indeed classic with a modern twist. Classic in a sense of ‘old school’: our sauces are all made in-house, with a veal-based stock. These days, that is very rare. Jean likes the good old way of preparing food - truly, the proper way! Moreover, there is not a bistro in France that doesn’t serve at least 2 out of the 3 desserts we offer: Tarte Tatin, Mousse au Chocolat, and Creme Caramel.
For lunch, the Croque Monsieur is a must-have. French peasant, or street food, is uniquely reinvented here.
Our wine list is mid-priced and extensively curated from France; we offer the best value for the best price. Or, try any of our other cocktails!

It was a perfect evening to dine on the patio. Le Baratin's prix fixe menu is so great, because the meal comes together in perfect portions. We started with the dip plate (and both the homemade boursin and baba ganoush were excellent) and the daily special of brandade was great too: I think it is a perfect addition to the fall menu! For mains we had the daily fish and the vegetarian tart - both just delicious. Great service and an interesting wine list - such a nice way to spend the last Sunday evening of summer. Highly recommend!

The service at Le Baratin is a rare find. Pascal is a gem. Waitstaff is consistent. Guests are treated like regulars whether you were there last week or two years ago. And the food is outstanding. Basic French bistro fare, always excellent.

The food was very good. The service started off slow (literally 18 minutes before menus were presented) but improved as the evening went on.
We were assigned very uncomfortable seats (red patio slated chairs intended for short term seating, not for dinner) outside but we made due. I highly recommend a cushion to make the experience more enjoyable, or switch the chairs for the 2 black ones on the sidewalk meant for waiting patrons.
I would recommend the restaurant to others.

Giselle provided great service and was very friendly. Food was very good - classic neighborhood bistro food. Looking at menu, I almost thought that I was back in Paris. Wine list provided good value for price.

Authentic French bistro experience at very reasonable prices. High-end wine selection, again, without a high-end price. Example main course special: herb-stuffed pork loin wrapped in bacon. 2015 Saint Emilion Grand Cru for less $90.

Streetside dining was unexpectedly fine in this vibrant small neighbourhood. We felt well taken care of and enjoyed our first meal out in ages with the 2-plate prix fixe at $42. The steak frites was really good, as was the charcuterie plate and duck rillettes appetizers that we shared. Lula across the street had gentle live music. Heavenly!

The Vol ete Vent was spectacular. The rack of lamb was so good there’s no possible way they could make any profit on it. Our waiter was bright and articulate and the food was prepared by a master. We will be back!
