Description

from Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament Toronto
Medieval Times is more than the nation's #1 and longest running dinner attraction - it's a living link to the past where the glory, chivalry and valor of old burst to life in authentic pageantry and thrilling tournament action.

While guests enjoy a hearty four-course medieval-style banquet (without silverware), six brave knights compete in games of skill astride magnificent Andalusian stallions. Lances splinter against shields of steel, broad swords spark and a champion emerges, to the cheers of the enthusiastic crowd. The spectacle unfolds nightly inside a fully enclosed European-style castle.

The Feast:
The menu at Medieval Times consists of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roasted chicken, sweet buttered corn, herb-basted potatoes, the pastry of the Castle, coffee and two rounds of select beverages. A vegetarian meal is available upon request.

In addition, our cocktail servers will be making the rounds and are happy to deliver any spirits from the bar that you request for an additional fee.

*Plan to arrive early, seating is first come first serve and to obtain the best seats and castle doors open 75 minutes prior to show time.*

Allergy/Strobe Warning: Medieval Times is a live horse show in an enclosed arena. Persons with respiratory conditions, allergies, or asthma attend at their own risk. Medieval Times uses stroboscopic and pyrotechnic effects.

This was my fourth time attending a tournament and dinner at the Toronto castle in the last decade. I am always as impressed as if it was the first time and glad to see a few changes and differences from one time to the next. I brought my boyfriend here for his first time and he had so much fun; he told me he felt like a kid again which certainly made me happier because he was enjoying the experience thoroughly. We looked at every counter in the large boutique area. Don’t miss the section where they have numerous swords made in Spain in Stainless Steel - beautiful workmanship. We paid the $2 each to enter the museum of horrors (torture devices). Wow! That was painful...! Haha! We enjoyed the live entertainment in this large area with the Queen, some Knights and Le Maître de la soirée. It was lovely to be able to see the beautiful stallions (horses) in their stalls eating, being washed, their mane braided, and so on. We arrived 1 hour and 15 minutes before the show in order to allow enough time to see everything before being seated. We were called by colour to take our seat in our section (Yellow this time). Michelle, our waitress, was very kind and courteous. The meal is very large - we had to take some back home (we eat average size meals and unlike some people who complained about not having enough food (?) we found it was plenty and satisfying). Unlike some people who seem a bit “fancy and pretentious” or not ready to dive into this wonderful experience, we really enjoyed eating with our hands as it marries well into the Medieval theme and I would not have it any other way! They also offer a vegetarian option for dinner, which I believe may not have been offered when I came with some family members 7 years ago. This time around, we bought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon which was served at our table before the meal service started. This is also new, where alcohol packages or different options are available. I appreciate this new opportunity and the wine was good. You can also purchase alcohol served in different styles of glasses and keep it. My favourite was the horn - Viking fashion! The show itself is always great fun, filled with a large array of different parts: jousting, weaponry, falconry and horsemanship. The acting is good and the evening action packed. The kid in me is always thrilled every time I come here! The décors are fantastic and the staffs costumes are absolutely magnificent. Their vocabulary is well adjusted. It’s grandiose. I strongly recommend this activity for large groups, families outings and people who fancy the Medieval themed events. * There is a reason why I have brought family members here 3 times in the last decade and now my boyfriend. It is truly incredible. Look for promotional code online to save a few dollars per person, which helps for large groups of less than 20 people. Otherwise, there is a special price for groups of 20 lords and ladies or more. Enjoy and Let The Tournament Begin...!

I was visiting Canada with my girlfriend and we thought that spending an evening at Medieval times in Toronto would be good fun. We were very impressed. The show was impressive, the staff friendly and fun. Both our server and the knight assigned to our colours for the evening were friendly and conversations with them improved our experience (Go red and yellow knight!). The food was good as was the beer. I am looking forward to a good excuse to go again.

I've lived in Toronto for about 25 years and have seen/heard ads for Medieval Times for about as long as I can remember. Finally had the chance to go last month for a friend's birthday party. The best thing I can comment on is the staff. The servers, bartenders, and runners are really part of the show with very out-loud personalities and great interaction. I thought that was excellent, as was the show itself. The food, I wasn't impressed by at all. It was very little actual food for what you're paying for admission, the quality was ehh, and I really wasn't a fan of having to eat everything with your hands. I understand that's part of the medieval "theme"... but eating a half chicken with your hands is messy at best, and when some parts of the chicken are hot, that might come as an unpleasant surprise. Had I known it was like this, I'd have brought my own plastic cutlery. One very good thing though, is that because I have a food allergy... when I entered, they gave me a card to display on my table showing what my allergy is (so that servers can be aware of it), and they also provided a menu listing with the ingredients of every single item, so that I can be aware of what's in it. I thought that was a very nice touch. Also, in the booking process, there are two things I wasn't fond of in any way... 1. There's a $5 booking fee for no reason. This isn't Ticketmaster, or a third-party ticketing company where I could kind of understand that kind of fee. If I'm booking a show ticket DIRECT with you, I shouldn't have to pay $5 on top of the ticket price just to book it. It's also not nice not to advertise it, and let me find out at the last minute. Not cool guys, this really annoyed me. 2. There's also no option to pre-pay your gratuity. At the end of the show, the servers come around with pre-printed cards that say the gratuity isn't included, and you can pay your discretionary gratuity by cash or card. When I'm pre-paying for something like this, I'm not expecting to have to spend money on site. I had no problem tipping my server, he was great. But to make this a seamless experience, there should be an option to pre-pay the customary gratuity. Overall, I enjoyed it. I'd likely recommend it to those visiting Toronto, but making a point to mention the caveats (cutlery, booking fee, gratuity) to allow them to make their decision based on all information.

we had seats near center on long side and had the best experience up close to the action. A safety cage came down to protect our family during jousting as some items did break. We could take pictures throughout and the knights and servers put on a great show that was so entertaining we sometimes forgot to eat.

Have been there twice, my daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday there and was crowned a princess - made her day. Food is good and the show is entertaining, on top of it all easy to find coupons/ discounted tickets making it worthwhile for a family of four.
