Really enjoyed Barsa! Lovely ambiance. Reminded me of a setting you would find in Europe, where you have to walk down a few steps into a small intimate setting with inviting and warm lighting. Felt rather Spanish which is what they are going for here....More

I just go there for the sangria, it’s absolutely delicious (tinto one), unfortunately the tapas are very small and you have to order at least 5.

We went there upon recommendation from the hotel where we are staying. We ordered a paella and were completely disappointed. Dish had nothing to do with a Spanish paella. Overcooked rice with seafood. Not recommended at all.

I love dining at Barsa. Everytime we go we allow the server to come up with a tasting menu for us. We have never been disappointed. The trout is by far the best dish I've tried. Every visit is always a new satisfaction. Great patio...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
