Barsa Taberna is a modern Tapas premium casual restaurant, situated in the heart of downtown Toronto facing the St. Lawrence market. The restaurant's unique concept will offer a combination of electrifying Tapas, Entre and Drink menus. The influence of Barcelona is the leading inspiration in our concept and design, where hints of Picasso and Gaudi’s references are portrayed. Our concept is derived from the distinctive atmosphere, art, cuisine and culture of Barcelona as we thrive to create a vibrant, upscale yet casual experience for our patrons.

"Cute quasi-tapas resto across from St. Lawrence Market. Nice patio seating area (some with fireplaces). I admire the fact that they have respectfully renovated a historic building to create a fun & modern stone lined cave for the bar & dining areas. Lovely decor & servers (although it wouldn't hurt to throw in a Spaniard or two). The menu is interesting and creative, but not truly Spanish tapas (and I consider myself knowledgeable on the subject as my family has lived in Spain since the dawn of time). The plates are perfectly sized and very nicely presented. This would not be a good choice for "a hungry man dinner", but the perfect choice for grazing through many plates and glasses of wine."

Portuguese-bent cuisine in the true center of downtown Toronto. Featuring fresh fish and seafood such as lobster, tiger shrimp, and octopus. The rustic Mediterranean atmosphere charms everyone. Private dining facilities are also available.

"Thank you Adega for another perfect dinner. My two Finnish friends were impressed with all aspects of the restaurant – from the variety of menu selections, the olives, bread, olive oil, seafood and its creative presentation, as well as warm and professional service. I'll be back soon!"

Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill, Bayview Village is the first of O&B's casual dining restaurants created by renowned restaurateurs Peter Oliver and Michael Bonacini. This large urban space feels very downtown despite its North Toronto location. A gleaming open kitchen extends into the airy dining room, featuring washed tin ceilings, leather banquettes and dramatic and distinctive light fixtures. The menu offers something for everyone, including fresh, made-from-scratch soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas and fire-roasted pizzas. Join us for lunch, dinner or weekend brunch.<br />

"I hosted a Sunday brunch for 4 ladies (ranging in age from 3 to 60+) and as I don't live in the Bayview Village neighbourhood my options felt limited. The service was great (as it always is at O&B restaurants) and our 11 am seating was packed. it is nice to see families, birthday parties, hungover partiers, neighbourhood residents, couples, etc. all out and enjoying this spot. As a downtowner I don't get to this O&B 'outpost' often, but I will definitely recommend it to my friends living in the neighbourhood. Until I am back I will continue enjoying O&B Canteen @ TIFF Bell Lightbox and O&B Grill on Front Street."
