Bestellen – restaurant review

It was around 11:00 at night and since none of us wanted to go home yet we decided to drop by Bestellen for some drinks.  It also helped that the place was right across the street from the concert we went to.


Unfortunately the kitchen was closed but they were happy to mix our small group some delicious drinks. Shame, as we were starting to get a little hungry and their menu looked incredible! No wonder they made the Best Steakhouses in Toronto list.

Note that like some of the other restaurants I have written about, Bestellen caters more to carnivores than vegetarians. In fact if you are squeamish you may not want to peer into the meat locker located right in the middle of the restaurant. The decor is rustic, and the lighting very subdued. It was cozy but not in the cottage type of way.


Bestellen continues with the hottest drink trend in Toronto and their cocktail menu can go toe-to-toe with the best of them. Take a look at some of the few we sampled.

Basil Smash

Basil Smash (Bombay Gin, Fresh Basil, Lime)

Da'Vinci Dream

Da’Vinci Dream (Maraschino Cherry Liquor, Amaretto, Lemon, Cranberry)

I’m really looking forward to trying their Brunch or Dinner menu!
