Dinner here tonight was fabulous. Four of us all chose different mains, including lamb, chicken, salmon and vegetarian. All were superb! Outside courtyard was lovely and staff helpful and very friendly. Highly recommended!

Enjoyed a beautiful evening in the courtyard over several bottles of wine. Its a must if the weather allows. The service was exceptional and was matched by the food selection. Start with a Charcuterie board, which give you an amazing selection of meat, cheeses and...More

This is one of my go to favourites in Ottawa and this visit did not disappoint! We sat on the pack patio and relaxed with a cold beer followed by a delicious dinner of duck and wild boar jumbolya (spelling?) Everything was delicious and the...More
