Its a tight squeeze on a busy night and fairly loud. Book ahead. The food was really terrific and there were great GF options. Tacos were a good choice for sharing.

Really cool place with great atmosphere! Loved the food - would highly recommend the shrimp tacos! Would like to see more things on the menu, but I guess it's more a bar with food as an option.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and

Barrio Coreano is the fourth addition to our family. A fusion of Korean and Mexican flavours, we create bold dishes that will thrill any person with taste buds. This location also happens to be the test kitchen for all seven locations, so our chefs always have something experimental and inspired to offer up.
