We ordered the ceviche, it wasn't bad. Then we ordered the Chorizo---it was very dry--burnt actually. Very disappointed with that. Then we ordered the seafood Paella. The pan didn't have a lot of stuff in it compare to their Instagram pictures. It came with less rice, 3 pcs
of clams, 6 pcs of shrimps and mussels. I would say about a half less ingredients than what they advertise. One great thing was the Rose Sangria---this was delicious! Service
was great as well. Thumbs down for the quality of the food and the price. I don't mind paying $ for good quality food, but this was not good quality.
Very disappointing dinner and service.
We sat outside and it was lovely - just a bit of music and the auto traffic was minimal. Our waiter disappeared without any explanation; after too long, we had to flag down another, who was then very attentive. Food was fabulous.
I've eaten here many times and love it. Tonite was very slow, but the date may have predicted it. When I talked to the staff, they were great.
Great Paella, octopus, grilled potato’s. Quite pricey but satisfying quantities. Interesting setting in stone basement of a 19th century building with a story told by our waitress. Could be quite romantic with the right person.
Fabulous dinner experience. Great service and ambiance.
Family gathering. The menu has a nice variety of tapas, often beyond the normal. Excellent quality at a fair price — especially as the wine was 1/2 price!
Gaspacho was tasty and wonderfully served. Lovely romantic ambient
I was there with ny husband and daughter (4 years old) and we love the food. We have the chorizo and was very taste. The Tinto Sangria was perfect. I totally recommend this place
For the price I found the food quite average. Good, but not that special. The market price paella was bland, rice over cooked and awkward with cucumber (?) If they wanted a “crunch” maybe water chestnuts would be better as they take to heat better. Other items were ok but the cost isn’t justified. Otherwise ambiance and service was great.
I would come back again. Thank you for your service and help.
Wonderful service, beautiful space and delicious food!
Server was really friendly. Very helpful explaining choices. Gave us a perk for next time!
small portions, expensive meal. god service and nice atmosphere, but noisy
My partner and I went for a dinner reservation, and the service was fantastic right from the start. From how quickly we were seated, to our charismatic waiter, and the quality of the paella, this was definitely a delicious experience and now on our list for favourite restaurants in the city. Would recommend for a date night or even a dinner with friends!
A great restaurant! Good service, great food and loved the atmosphere in the restaurant. Even though we sat in a quiet area, waitress came regularly to see how we were doing. Would definitely go back!
Great sangria! The apps were very tasty, would order another main next time.
Excellent take on tapas and Spanish food in general!
We were disappointed with our experience here. We ordered more than 10 dishes and 5 of them came to the table all at once - it felt rushed and made it more difficult to enjoy everything that was on the table. After the second wave of dishes it became apparent our waiter had forgotten to punch in some of the items we had ordered. He came to the table to ask what else we were expecting and then we waited a while before those plates arrived. We went from 5 dishes on the table at once to no food at all. The pacing definitely needed some work. The manager was kind enough to comp the two dishes that had been forgotten though so that was generous!
We always go to Barsa is the closes Barcelona food in Toronto
Absolutely loved the live music. Food was well prepared and waitress was very helpful
Delicious meal! Brought my mum here for an early Mother’s Day dinner. She absolutely loved it!
Returning for the 3rd time since January 2019. However, sad to say it was not at all the same or even remotely close to my family’s last 2 visits. Hope it goes back to whatever they did before January. We will like to see our taste menu that we loved be restored.
Delicious food ... awesome sangria ... best server ever! ( she was super with the kids) Whole family thoroughly enjoyed the culinary experience. Can’t wait to go back again!!
Great atmosphere. Food was delicious and service was excellent.
Nice ambiance, small portions
Incredible food. Possibly our new favorite restaurant in Toronto.
Fabulous! Excellent food and cool, romantic vibes. I would definitely return!
Went therefor our anniversary. Great food!
We did the $60 taster menu and it was DELICIOUS. Amazing food, superb service, wicked ambiance. Would come back again and again. Highly recommend.
The food was okay. We felt rushed and it seemed like they were in a hurry to move us out so they could fill the table.
Server was fantastic. Food and atmosphere were lovely.
I love Barsa. I've been many times, especially for the half/price wine night in particular the Albarinho!! From my region in Spain. The service is fantastic and the food is always good. I will keep going:)
A bit pricey but worth it. Great service. Great ambience. Very cozy and intimate. We went there around 4:30 when it opened so there wasn't much people and noise.
Very good food, not inexpensive. Gets noisy early with the after-work crowd from the area. Great service and good ambiance.
Our waiter was very gruff and unfriendly. At first I thought it was an act but then I realized it was actually his personality. Not a great start to the evening!
The menu is not very extensive and is very expensive. The bill four four people was nearly $400 before tip and that was with a 50 dollar bottle of wine. All of the plates are tapas which generally we love. However in this instance we found $33 dollars for a small plate of aged ham and $33 dollars for a cheese plate with approximately 8 small triangles of manchego ripe cheese to excessively pricey. The octopus was nice but nothing outstanding. The patatas brava were soggy.... not like a true crispy browned dish. All in the food was disappointing to the point I went home ready to find something good to eat.
Finally, the restaurant is super noisy. Don’t go hear if you want to hear what anyone in your party is discussing.
Much better place in toronto for that much money. Take a miss on this one.
The food was good and so were the drinks. The paella was tasty and good to share (max for 2 ppl tho... but we were suggested it would feed 4)! The ambiance and decor are nice, and it makes you feel like you are in a real Spanish Taberna. HOWEVER, the service was really not the best and very disorganized considering that the restaurant was quite empty (maybe 2 or 3 more tables aside from ours). The service kind of ruined our overall experience at this restaurant.
I would recommend this place if money is not an issue for you as it is quite pricey for what it offers. The space is very nicely decorated, inside space is beautiful and less noisy, the food is overall good (some dishes were amazing others mediocre, consult with the server, they know), service pretty rushed, not very good at handling a full space.
Very good food in a great location. Service was not the best and tapas served too fast. Next time we will ask for tapas to be served one at a time.
Fantastic food, best octopus ever and delicious sangria!
