Mexican
In both 2022 and 2023, we received the prestigious Bib Gourmand accolade from the Michelin Guide, making us the first fully plant-based restaurant in Canada to achieve such a distinction.

At La Bartola, we take pride in creating an authentic dining experience from scratch. Our corn-based dishes like handmade tortillas, Oaxacan Tetelas, meticulously crafted from non-GMO heirloom corn and traditional Moles, carry the legacy of ancient recipes passed down through generations.

Every meal we serve is a tribute to the artistry and time-honoured techniques of Mexican cuisine.
Our commitment to using high-quality, traditional ingredients brings flavours to life in unparalleled ways. Each dish tells a story of dedication, honouring the cultural heritage while embracing a plant-based philosophy. 

Join us on a flavorful journey where each bite is a celebration of artisanal craftsmanship, culinary excellence, and the rich legacy of Mexican gastronomy.

    This is the best vegan dining experience I've had, and I've been to a lot of vegan places. I think most omnivores wouldn't be able to tell that it's vegan -- it's a great restaurant that just happens to be vegan. I'll add that the food is really elevated for such a low price relative to comparable establishments. The flavours are nuanced and the chefs aren't scared of spice in the way that a lot of other swanky restaurants are. I was really impressed.

    Hello Shannon, Thank you for your review. We have never forced anyone to book a tasting menu in open table. When you book your reservation, you can choose a la carte or a tasting menu, and you chose the tasting menu. We have several guests yesterday dining a la carte, or tasting menu, and none of them was forced to book anything. We kindly suggest you to be more careful next time you book a reservation, and see the options that are offered prior booking your reservation. Moreover, is not about being “cheap”, is about that we have made already the tasting menu for (as you booked) you. We prepare a certain amount based on reservations on daily basis. We get that our cuisine is not for everyone, and we apologies if you did not enjoy your meal with us. Have a wonderful day!

    We celebrated a special occasion with a group of 7 people and we learned that if any one wanted to try the tasting menu, we all had to do it. Each course was very creative and beautifully presented but I left the restaurant feeling too full and over satiated. In the end, I wasn't able to appreciate the food as much. I wish we were given options to choose the tasting menu or a-la-cart menu. Some people can not consume so many courses however delicious they are.

    The food was creative but a bit out of our comfort zone. Wish there were more classic options.

    We ate a five course tasting menu with wine pairings and it was so, so good. I’m not vegan but I love food and so does their kitchen. Quiet environment, friendly, kind, and utterly amazing food.
