It was one of those rare experiences when eating in a restaurant felt like more than just eating in a restaurant. It was a magical experience, and I hope to come back soon.

Everything about the restaurant was superb! We ordered the house salad, the ceviche, clams and patatas bravas! Each of those dishes were extraordinarily delicious! Would definitely reccomend this place!

This is the best restaurant in the city! My only dilemma was that there are far too many outstanding items on the menu to be able to taste them all. The bone marrow, sweet breads and raw tuna on green tomatoe, and grilled octopus were INSANE. Everyrhing was perfect, and easily half of the items we ordered were the best dishes we've ever tatsed. Consistently my favorite restaurant in Toronto!

This restaurant is amazing and I would absolutely recommend it to family and friends. The food was to die for and the service was incredible(or should I say, on point). My new favourite spot. Prices were also VERY reasonable for the experience.

Stellar food & cocktails! Could have done without the constant pestering to confirm my reservation though. I was contacted by phone (which I verbally confirmed with a human), by text, by email and again by email. Oi!

Had some great experiences during events like taste of Toronto. So this time, we visited especially for octopus, however not as good as expected. Too over cooked and not chewy at all, disappointed. Ceviche is okay tho. Ordered other dishes, no surprise at all;(

I am disappointed that Bar Isabel is listed as one of the best 20 restaurants in Canada. It does not belong to the list. This is a neighbourhood bar, I would never go, if it would not have been listed as one of the best 20 restaurants in Canada. There is nothing special about it.

Food was very creative regarding flavour. Presentation needed work. Noise is fine, but an extremely loud drunk sitting right behind us was given no direction on his behaviour, and was plied with wine long after he became overly loud. Server was impatient when we were deciding how much to order, and seemed to be a bit condescending. Food was excellent overall.

Cozy Spanish tavernas in Toronto

Cozy Spanish tavernas in Toronto

Eat, drink, be merry – this is the motto of one of Toronto’s most coveted restaurant for tapas this side of Barcelona. This College and Ossington hotspot serves up authentic tapas brimming with flavor, in a sexy, intimate setting. Glowing overhead lighting and a mosaic floor provide a comfy and cool backdrop for munching plates of P.E.I. littleneck clams, satiating cheese plates and octopus, and knocking back some serious libations. Top pick: if you’re dining with three or more, order a Negroni fountain – the classic cocktail is served up in a tall punch bowl with side-spouts for pouring.

Toronto’s hottest resto didn’t make its bones on food alone. The cocktail menu is either the perfect preamble to a memorable meal or a surefire way to forget you were ever hungry. Try a drink called ‘A Woman Scorned’ or the ‘Bullfighter.’ Only then, should you eat
