This restaurant offers a small plates concept with wonderful Greek and Mediterranean flavours. There is many vegetarian and vegan options, and the service is friendly and fast. Great spot for business lunch, street is not very busy and parking is easy to find.

This place is absolutely fantastic. Perfect pace of the dishes, the food was really delicious and the service was very attentive and prompt. Would definitely recommend. This is an authentic and unique place, not a chain of so so food.

Went to this place for a family meal in December. It was busy even on a post Christmas weeknight. As always the food was superb. Service was not quite up to par for this place, probably because they were surprisingly busy, but the food was a excellent as it always is. It's small and friendly and we will for sure... More

Outstanding! Everything we had was great - lamb sliders, eggplant roulade, calamari, rosemary scallops, ouzo shrimp. Flavours popped - excellent. And to start, my bloody strawberry just set the tone. I will return here. absolutely!

This restaurant was rated as #2 on Trip Advisor and having never heard of it (even though it has been opened for over a decade) I decided to check it out. I was pleasantly surprised! A hidden gem, tapas style. Each of the 7 items we ordered was done to perfection, well presented with an impeccable mix of aromas plus... More

My husband & I hadn't experienced 'small plates' dining before, but now we're hooked. Aroma Meze is located in an older house on a small street in downtown Ottawa (free on-street parking). There are two separate dining areas--we were taken to the larger room at the back of the house. Zak, our wonderful waitperson, guided us through this adventure in... More

Located in an old house, the restaurant is quirky and cute. The service is wonderful. We ordered the pita and tzatziki sauce (gentle on the palate), warmed olives and feta (sooo good!), dolmades (not overly pickled), zucchini cakes (need to be eaten while hot or they get soggy), and the tenderloin with ginger (needed salt but tender). The wine was... More

My wife and daughter took me here for a birthday dinner which turned out to be a bit of a flop. Aroma Meze bills itself as serving Mediterranean food, which made the choice of Christmas carols played on an electronic organ rather odd. The food itself was mixed, featuring excellent salmon crisps, tuna tartare and octopus. The other dishes were... More

Food is interesting. Unique combinations of proteins and/or veggies and sauces or cheeses, which you'd expect give the prices; however, it seemed someone forgot the salt. Our experience was overall underwhelming. One bonus was, having recently being diagnosed a Celiac (needing a Gluten Free diet), it was an easy place to go, with over 80% of the menu GF or... More
