It was a very cute spot. The food wasn’t great, the only thing that was amazing with the guac and chips! I highly recommend their guac and chips! And the drinks were mediocre. Cute little restaurant though

Some of our favorite food items were not on the menu anymore but the Kale salad was excellent. In general the food was good,but I’ve better food at Chula in the past! Our chips for instance were over fried! Nearly inedible.
The washroom needs a lot of love 🙈

Enjoyed a mid-week patio lunch. The back patio is great with plenty of cover and protection from sun and rain. It was surprisingly busy for a weekday.

The food was tasty, with decent-sized portions. The service was friendly and accommodating. I particularly liked the zucchini fritters.

Really enjoyed the food. The appetizer come after the main course was on the table, we just enjoyed the 2 together. We were inside, it was a little noisy and hard to hear the server who was wearing a mask.

The hostess was not friendly at all. She told us to go upstairs and turn left and we only had an hour and a half to eat. Once upstairs we saw it was inside. I went downstairs again and had requested the rooftop. She told me there was no room. So after spending money on an Uber we left!!! She did not try to accommodate us or told us if we waited maybe we could get a seat. After all apparently it’s an hour and a half eating limit! But to be honest the rude vibe we got I was happy to leave. Disappointing

So they made us wait for 20 min for our table despite having a reservation and then ended up giving us the worst table they had even though there were other tables available. I wouldn't give them a poor rating for just this but the food was super disappointing as well.

We cancelled our reservation because we got stuck in traffic. Now why would they close down 3 lanes in the 404 on a Saturday? Only in Canada....
We figured we would just go and do takeout. When we arrived an hour after we asked if there were any table available and although they were fully booked they were able to arrange another table. Thank you to Sofia! Top notch to our servers for great customer service!
Food wise we ordered the Dos Amigos. Pico de gallo was good but the guac was a bit too salty. Chips were ok.
Zucchini fritters could use a little crunch but tasty. Chicken tacos were a bit dry, but the pork tacos were good. We had high hopes for the churros sundae but it was too doughy for us. We would go back to try other items on the menu. Great patio and atmosphere.

Food needed more spice. Nachos were a bit burnt.

Server was excellent and customer service was excellent. They just need to work on making the food more authentic in taste.

Absolutely loved the decor of the place and the music.
We had a reservation so we didn’t have to wait, the outdoor patio had a beach shack like get up which totally added to the vibe.
We tried the calamari, I personally thought the portions were less but it was really well cooked and tasted pretty darn good.
Over all a good late night hangout.

Our group of 5 had a late dinner at Chula. We enjoyed the food immensely and the service was great. There were no tables available on the patio at the time of our reservation, though we are committed to going back and checking it out!

Food provided at the restaurant was excellent. Food ordered to go was overpriced considering it was delivered was not as described in menu (Ordered a Churro Sundae,; received two Churros -- no caramel sauce nor ice cream -- so not the item as described). Should have been advised that the item could not be provided as takeout or provided a lesser price for the takeout item.

I went there last Friday after another restaurant so i was unable to get food since we were already full but did try a couple of drinks. El dorado/tesoro can’t remember both okay but the mango habanero was amazing! I was left with the craving or trying their churro sundae so I went back Monday. I was able to try the food all good, the steak was the only thing that was not something we enjoyed but the rest was amazing. Got a couple of more drinks all good! For the price point better than anejo as well.

There was a rat running around on the patio and when we pointed it out the server, she was very apologetic and said the manager would reach out to us but we never heard from them again. What a disappointment.

The food was absolutely amazing as well as the drinks !! The staff was amazing and that's probably why the food was as well the attitude was just great and not to mention it's such a beautiful restaurant it reminds me of Mexico❤️! The unfortunate part was that I did book for a patio but we did have to be seated inside for some reason. Other than that the hubby and I can't wait to come back Chula Taberna ❤️

Good Mexican meal, efficient service. Table on the second floor outside deck - ambience will improve when pandemic barriers between tables come down. A bit like eating in an outdoor office cubicle right now.

Nice selection of drinks. Very tasty tacos. Might seem a bit strange, but the zucchini taco is really excellent, followed by the fish, then the meat tacos. Good COVID set up. Download menus, and spaced out patio seating.
