Fine Fare at the Volo

Located mid-way between College and Bloor streets on busy Yonge, Bar Volo is small, charming and rustic but an excellent choice for food and drink. The beer, cider and wine selection are superb and the extensive craft draft choices are posted on a large chalk board along with prices and the alcohol... read more

the beer selection was wonderful. I really enjoyed the fact that they had 6 different cask beers to choose from. The food was amazing as well. You have to try the water buffalo.

Bar Volo 587 Yonge St. Toronto (416) 928-0008 info@barvolo.com Just north Yonge and Wellesly, the area around Bar Volo has seen more change over the years, than the Salvation army donation globes at Eaton Centre during the holidays. In the midst of this urban masala, Bar Volo has survived, struggled and prospered over the last three decades. The owners for... More

Based on the suggestion of a friend, went here one cold and wet December night while in town on business. The small, cosy room is dominated by an extensive list of beers on tap ranging from familiar to exotic and seasonal. To say that there is something for every taste might be a stretch, but I had no shortage of... More

Went on a friends recommendation as a beer drinkers bar. They have a great selection including 5 or 6 cask ales (a real beer drinkers must have). We ordered a variety of apps to share and all were very good. Part of the charm of this place is that it is small and quaint, but it also means it is... More

If you're a fan of craft beer this is your place. They offer a wide range of craft beers at varying price points. Don't come expecting a cocktail menu because they don't have one. Located just out of the Church-Wellesely Village this is a great spot for craft beer and an excellent tasting menu. They have a unique approach to... More

If you love beer, you'll love BarVolo! It's not a traditional place for food. My colleague and I had a charcuterie, which was very nice, with nice cured meats and cheeses. However, we loved the atmosphere, where the seating encourages conversations across groups. But the highlight was the beer. We had a couple of Belgian Triples, which is my favourite... More

The beers are great, and the selection is amazing. However, even though the food is nice, this isnt the place to come for dinner of any sort.

Great little spot with fantastic service. The patio is cozy and classy at the same time. I had a BLT and I must say - It was the best BLT I have ever had, Sourdough bread, marinated tomatoes, Bacon cooked to perfection. What else can I say, it was fantastic! Cheers.

Great for after-work dinner and drinks - very good food menu, beer selection, service, and just overall a very down-to-earth and sociable vibe.
