Are you a fan of fresh fish, seafood, and oysters? There’s a small maritime pub in the Financial District that’s a must try on any Toronto bucket list.

John & Sons Oyster House is a warm and welcoming place, serving up some of the best selection of fresh oysters in Toronto. The team at John & Sons will make you feel like a regular with their friendly banter. Not sure which varietal of oyster to order? Simply ask your server. They are always ready to give a recommendation or explanation of origin and taste. The main menu is full of seafaring classics like their mouth-watering New England Clam Chowder. For those that prefer land-based dishes, we highly recommend the Steak Frites, grilled to perfection each time.

Tucked away on Temperance Street, John & Sons is a must-experience restaurant in downtown Toronto. If you’re staying at The Strathcona Hotel, it will take you 8-minutes to walk to this one-of-a-kind establishment.
