    The Toronto International Film Festival was founded in the Windsor Arms Hotel in 1976, and the hotel's involvement in the Festival continues to this day.

    I've gone here several times over the years and the quality and service have declined. Chipped teapots? Leaving dirty dishes on the table? Not the experience for high tea that it should be.

    One of the best places for couples massage in Toronto

    A favourite among those TIFF celebs who "want to be alone," this old school luxury boutique hotel is great for a cigar and a scotch after a long day of screenings Read more

    Who can deny the high tea is one of the best. There are also some great cocktail lounges and great for weddings

    This is the most authentic tea in the city. The Chai Arms tea, a special blend made specifically for The Windsor Arms, is a must-try.

    Ask for th grilled cheese (no meat) w/ gravy for dipping. Not on the menu, but one of the best things "on" the bar menu

    Andria Mendicino · December 1, 2010
  • Andria M.

    Sit in the front bar, order the $1.25 oysters on Tuesday nights and see if you can get the grill cheese with gravy that's not on the menu (if Antony's working its a plus&enjoy the drinks)

    Andria Mendicino · November 30, 2010

    Don't bother ordering the ahi tuna. The waitress said they haven't had it in a long time and owners should change the menu.
