Best Toronto Patios: El Caballito

For over the past two years, El Caballito has been the hotspot for young professionals to get their tequila fix.

When it comes to the patio, this restaurant is considered one of Toronto’s best. This is an authentic Mexican experience, and is as close to traditional Mexican cuisine as you can get, without leaving the comfort of your beloved city of Toronto. This restaurant offers the full Mexican experience, salsa music included (minus the exotic weather and palm trees).

The rustic bar feel will have you feeling like a local thanks to its welcoming atmosphere. Unique Mexican-inspired art pieces fill the decor inside, including light fixtures made from tequila bottles. The outside is just as beautiful on the inside, and walls give as sense of privacy from the rest of the city.

The vast drink menu offers tequilas that you normally wouldn’t be able to find at many bars in Toronto. The extensive tequila menu is the best for any tequila enthusiast, or someone who just wants to try something new. Fully equipped with a tequila tasting room, the 90-plus-option menu will surely catch your attention.

The authentic and intimate feel is created by exposed brick inside, and refurnished wood allowing for a very warm setting.

The 1,800 square-foot-patio adds to the unique vibe you instantly feel upon entrance. Being one of Toronto’s best, their patio is highly raked in the restaurant business. The patio isn’t like anything you’ve seen before, with beautiful Mexican murals canvased to the walls, and lights hanging above the bar.

The self-serve style at the patio is perfect for those who would rather enjoy a light meal with a drink. The street-style Mexican cuisine is a perfect match with any tequila of your liking. This is the place where you would want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the rest of the town. You will definitely want to be a part of this fiesta.
