This atmospheric restaurant, in a timeless two-storey Victorian house with a year-round back patio, was conceived by restaurant industry veteran Nicki Laborie.
Bar Reyna was designed as an energetic gathering place where the vibe, food and drinks intermix to create a wholly unique restaurant experience. Our menu features an eclectic mix of table snacks and larger plates that traverse the Mediterranean.
Bar Reyna is available for private dining events. Reservations are recommended but walk-ins are welcome.

Had a nice experience with my girlfriends. The atmosphere is nice, and although you are in one of the loudest neighbourhoods, the back patio is really nice. We enjoyed our conversations. The food was great. The portions definitely worth their values. Thank you
One of the best restaurants in Toronto. Tasty food good environment and for higher class it's priced well.
I really enjoyed the food, meals were timely and tasted wonderful. Service was great! We never had any trouble ordering. Only concern is with the face shield, since I didn’t feel it is protective enough for the servers. But otherwise, would come back again!
The food and staff are incredible. Owners take care to come by and check on level of quality, and remember their regulars. Just amazing.
It was incredible ! Five stars!!
Great and delicious meal! Loved the grilled cheese and salad (not too much dressing = perfect). The Arabic fries were to die for. Very reasonably priced as well.
Waited a bit too long in between courses
A great place for lunch. Sharing with the rest of your party.
Bar Reyna came recommended to us. We were a party of five being seated in the back area. Not impressed with the seating as it was far too hot and not an interesting surrounding.
The server did his best but the service was very slow.
The oysters were excellent and of great value. All the other dishes were overpriced for the size and not suitable for sharing at all. We left hungry.
We will not come back unless some drastic changes are being made.
Delicious food and good value. Though our server was new, he knew the menu and gave us a wonderful service. Highly recommended.
Already came to Bar Reyna two previous times, so I knew it’d be the perfect place to go and surprise my friend for her birthday. We came for brunch, and our server recommended the mimosas for drinks to start with - which were delicious! I had the Shakshuka and my two friends had the Crab Benedict. We nibbles on the Italian fries on the side, which are the best fries I’ve ever had (considering they’re cut super thin, which is my preference). We sat in the outdoor area (which has an open roof during summer), but this time it was sealed and had heaters all around, which made it very cozy. Overall, everyone enjoyed their time here!
Amazing experience. Food was delicious! Would definitely recommend going during happy hour and trying the Lebanese tacos and halloumi. Wow!
It’s either freezing or uncomfortably hot.
Great dinner and waitress was superb
Very impressed with this Yorkville find, good food and atmosphere
Had lunch there with a couple of girlfriends. The restaurant is super cosy, love the atmosphere. Lunch menu a little limited, but we loved what we had. Especially the chicken tacos.
The food was delicious and the service was great. Will definitely visit again.
Great service. Made us feel very special and we enjoyed ourselves.
Food was great but service need improvement. Took a while for hostess to acknowledge our existence. Then we’ve been asked to move from our seats because they needed our table for larger group of people....well nobody came. Definitely never coming back.
Will definitely return. Creative tasting menu with tapas to share. Interesting cocktails as well!
Great spot with awesome character, amazing special cocktails and great brunch!
It was great.
Loved the patio vibe especially the decor and ambience. Service was great and food was good. Only thing was the ourdoor heating was directly hitting my head. Made it somewhat uncomfortable. But food was good and delicious.
Great service! Had such a good experience. Yummy cocktails!!!
All the speciality cocktails are a must try, especially the 5oz royal queen drink (I don't remember the exact name).
As for their food, you can't go wrong with any of the fries. Additionally, the short ribs are very much worth it!
Made reservations for a group of 4. Got there at 12:30pm and waited 30 mins for someone to ask us for our order. Host sat us at the front beside the large window and front door on a day that was -10 outside, so every time someone opened the door, the cold breeze would hit us. Apparently, there were no other tables to switch us to and upstairs was closed (bc it’s too much effort to serve only one table upstairs), so we sat at our table with our jackets on. After 1 hour of being there, we still didn’t get our food and by that time, all other tables had turned over and we were still sitting by the front door, when they could’ve moved us. Asked the manager where our food was and it took another 15 mins to receive it. Clearly, they never put our order in and didn’t even bother to check on our table. So we basically waited 1hr and 15 mins to get “Avocado Toast” and “French Toast”, a meal that takes 5 minutes to make.
Won’t be returning and will definitely not recommend our friends to come back or even try this place. Which is disappointing because I came here during the summer for Brunch and the meal/service/experience was much better, hence why I had made reservations again with a group of other friends. But never again. Should’ve taken a photo of the sad pouched egg that came with my meal and clearly lost its yolk during the rushed cooking process.
Hi, I am so sorry to read this. I have spoken to the manager on duty as there is no excuse for your experience. You absolutely should have been seated upstairs and I am so sorry the food took so long. I also understand that comping your bill was not enough to help ease the experience. Could you email me directly so we can see what else we can do to rectify this? We pride ourselves on offering the friendliest & best service so this is just as disappointing for us. Look forward to hearing from you
The food was delicious and Love the decor but our service was not great. We had to wait a long time for our server to come and take our order, clear our plates,bring our bill and bring us our change.
Great service, great drinks, great food. We tried 3 of the fries and they were all amazing. The lamb baklava was also a stand out.
Such great food and atmosphere. Would definitely suggest getting a table in the back of the restaurant
The place is beautiful and convenient. Our server Cara was exceptional. Food was delicious.
Great food, good service. But the furniture could do with an upgrade. Also plates are too small, everyone's knife and fork kept sliding off the plate, which was a real nuisance.
Great atmosphere. Loved the heated back patio. Staff very accommodating.
Food was very good, flavourful and shareable meal. Was great for a lunchtime bite before the museum visit. Will go again.
Great food, great atmosphere, loved the drag show. Will be back and fully recommend.
Overall, it was a fine experience. The downside is that my friend and I ordered an entree, and were told (after the entree order) that we only had 20 minutes at the table left. Would have preferred to know that beforehand!
VERY NOISY. HARD TO HAVE A CONVERSATION.
Food was amazing, service was okay, ambiance was AMAZING, such a beautiful spot
Food and service were decent but the seating in the back of the restaurant was either freezing cold or sweltering hot when the heaters were on above everyone’s head. Did not make for a comfortable dining experience.
This was one of the best meals I've had in a long time. I brought my BF here for their birthday dinner and we loved every bit of the meal. Our server was amazing at explaining the dishes, and we LOVED the lam shank baklava and shrimp tostadas. Will definitely be back!
Still the “go to” spot in Yorkville for me, it has a fun atmosphere and great food for sharing. The patio is great...actually anywhere in the restaurant works. Good mix of Mediterranean food that is not junk food!
