- ADArtisticDeliciousWokeToronto / Ontario •3 reviews5.0Dined 5 days agoEverything about La Bartola was art! The quality of the food was outstanding and the dishes were interesting; the chef gave us an insightful background about the suppliers that they work with in Mexico. The tacos were very unique and I was surprised that the buckwheat tacos and caramelized onion tacos were my favourite; the chef elevated these ingredients to create some of the best tacos I've ever had. The experience at La Bartola is heightened because you can feel great about eating La Bartola's conscientious dishes - they are 100% plant based! If you need to impress someone, this is a reliable place to take them! We thought the dessert was a little basic tasting at first (though the presentation was incredibly beautiful), but we just aren't used to eating a lot of barely sweetened desserts...it grew on us as we continued to consume it, and we were grateful for the experience! I would get it again. Service was top notch, friendly, fun, knowledgeable, and on point. Thank you La Bartola for making our special evening better than expected!
