Chula Taberna Mexicana
WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS ON OUR PATIOS.
All reservations are for indoor dining room seating. Our patios are first come first serve!
Large party reservation requests: email@example.com.
Chula is a lively Taberna Mexicana with an amazing selection of tequila, mezcal, beer and cocktails that complement flavorful delicious food.
This is a two-story space with 2 outdoor patios & 3 tequila bars, inspired by traditional & modern Mexican cantinas.
Saturday and Sunday brunch service until 3pm.
We love this place. The service is always friendly and food is great. However this time around the food could have been a bit hotter. It felt like it sat in the kitchen for a while. But otherwise, nothing but good things to say
Second time going because we love the food but the service is just awful. No one cleans the table after 80% of the plates are done. Getting an order in always a task
Love the experience and our friendly + fun server. Would definitely return! Thank you!!
Saturday night, 8pm with a reservation and it took almost 10 minutes to get acknowledged once I arrived. Cocktail was about 20 minutes to come, food arrived first, and the Paloma was almost all ice. Water took forever to be refilled also.
Fantastic drinks, food and staff!!! My favourite spot
This restaurant is incredible. The food was well presented and incredible tasty. I recommend anyone who loves Mexican or is interested to reserve, and enjoy!!
Amazing! Will definitely go back!!
Great food, good and reasonable pricing, service was a little slow but otherwise a good experience
This is a good restaurant to go for drinks. The food is good - and the portions are very generous - but you don't sell Enchiladas with flour shells. That's a burrito!
I was really looking forward to coming here as the reviews looked amazing.
I made reservations a few days in advance to ensure I would enjoy a rare night out. As I was running behind I called the restaurant and advised them. When I got there I was a seated at a table in between two other tables approximately 10-12 inches apart. The tables were so close together my butt literally wiped the neighbouring table as I tried to slide between to get to my seat.
The table I had was unbalanced. I told the server and she said she would return with some coasters. I never saw her again.
I had the classic margarita. I expected better. It did not have a good balance and it was very harsh to drink.
The guacamole and chips were another disappointment. It tasted like the guac came out of a bag like you get at Lonestar. The guac wasn’t event green, it was more brown which makes me wonder how long ago it was made. The chips were decent.
I ordered an array of tacos - shrimp, carnitas, clam, and beef brisket. The shrimp I enjoyed the most. The carnitas were good too but something in it tasted off. The clam was interesting but doused with mayo which took away the authenticity of Mexican food. The beef brisket was ok as well.
I didn’t stay for dessert as I was too full and I could not get the attention of the wait staff for 20 minutes.
Overall, I was very disappointed. I was hoping for a much better experience. The ambiance and the venue was very nice, although I’m not sure if the neighbouring table enjoyed my butt swiping their table again as I left.
Food was great, Enchilada was huge everything was very tasty! Service was pretty good just waited a little long for our drinks second time around.
The food was delicious. Cactus dip was very tasty. Tuna ceviche needed a bit more of a zing. Tacos were great! Tables are way too close to each other for my liking but staff was very accommodating
Delicious and tasty food. Everything had its own unique flavours. Wait staff were great, casual vibe, will definitely be back!
Great value too.
way too noisy, asked to moved away from encroaching children whose parents didn’t think they should stop their children from annoying other customers. was ignored by staff (he literally walked away when I asked to move, I’m talking to you man bun) we left immediately without even looking at a menu. I can’t see bothering to return. incredibly disappointing experience.
Creative food in a comfortable setting. Fun time with interesting Mexican food.
I love Chula! This place never disappoints. The drinks are a little pricy but very tasty. I love that you can order soft tacos by the piece so you can sample so many different proteins / flavours. I’ve had every taco on the menu and they’re all amazing!!!! Each one different. Definitely order as is with no modifications. I’m a picky eater and yet here I feel you need to experience each dish the way it’s made as each ingredient balances out the other. The flavours are a mix of sweet and spicy. This place is super fun. The patio is incredible. I like this place better than La Carnita.
The food didn’t come as described - the server didn’t pay much attention to us and it wasn’t busy that she couldn’t have paid more attention. By the time she finally came around we were over it and just wanted to go. I’m surprised she didn’t say or question anything when we barely touched our meals.
A great place for a casual meal in the Leslieville district of Toronto. We ate outside in the split-level patio area which is really special, with a nice atmospheric "buzz". Food was very good, including some less usual items (the zucchini fritters were really fab); service was friendly & efficient. If we lived in Toronto we'd be back here regularly. Not sure how it would be once the weather means the patio can't be used, as the interior dining room didn't have the same feel.
We had reserved a table inside - they found us a table on the lovely patio. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and made some great recommendations. Great music - in the background but not so loud that you couldn't hear your dinner companions. Food and drinks were delicious.
The food was excellent and the ambiance was great.
Had great seats outside complete with heaters for the cooler evening. Food choices were good. Server gave excellent recommendations and food came quickly, almost too quickly (did I say that?). Staff seemed genuine and that they liked there jobs.
Loved the simplicity of the menu. A great modern twist on favorite Mexican selections. Honest service and price level is slightly over moderate for the quantity of food offered. However the quality of everything going in is higher than an amount that is just overly abundant or inedible. Love that you can easily switch from vegetarian to non. Also, I kept it in mind that it's advertised as a Taberna. It's most certainly more than that!
The tacos and signature cocktails are all amazing at Chula. Great service. Not just for taco Tuesday. Yum!
Cool atmostphere, quick service. The food was good too.
Awesome food. We don’t live in the area, but would travel the 30-40 minutes again!
Food was amazing. Sat out back on patio. Nice feel. Service was great. Prices a little higher than average but you get what you pay for.
We really enjoyed ourselves, early Saturday reservation on the rooftop. Server was fun, well informed and happy to make suggestions. Great teamwork, very guest focussed staff. Most importantly, great margaritas!
Very good, authentic Mexican food. Service was slow to start and then picked up. Big portions but still found it reasonably priced ($150 for four people with two appetizers and two alcoholic drinks).
Check out the all you can eat taco night and the $5 margarita night!
Food was great can't complain about that but our server was gone for about 20 min half way through our meal and didn't check up on us in fact a few tables had the same issue. The table next to us had their food delivered but no cutlery. Couldn't even find a staff member to ask. The food saves this place or else I wouldn't go back.
Great atmosphere...food arrived unbelievably quick! Amazing selection on tequila
Chula was overall amazing with quality tasting food that came out quick. Loved the Mexican corn and Zucchini tacos. The service was friendly, accompanied by a fun, lively atmosphere.
To improve on, I found the music a tad loud for conversation.
Thank you for a great time!
This place does not disappoint.
Loved the patio, service was prompt and the food was great!
Would definitely return .
Great service and ambiance! I loved the variety of drinks and tacos. I loved the patio at the back :)
The service was great, the food was fantastic, my only drawback was the noise level was so high that we weren’t able to carry a conversation at our table.
Most friendly staff and excellent mexican food. Been there three times and have been consistently satisfied.
Service was kind of slow. Get drinks out faster But still recommend.
This is my new favourite restaurant! I’ve been twice and can’t wait to introduce all my friends to Chula. I’ve only dined on the patio so don’t know what the vibe is on the inside. Love it!
Bartender amazing! Server just ok.
Food didn’t taste like it did on a previous visit so very disappointed.
This place has a great vibe to it food. Most of my food was really good
