Description
Experience a fresh perspective and be inspired by Executive Chef Lyness' contemporary cuisine. Perspectives Restaurant offers a menu enriched with simple, healthy ingredients from local suppliers within the Ottawa Valley and Ontario. From creative cooking techniques fused with exceptional ingredients to the contrasting flavours paired with our extensive wine list, each dish represents the culinary style that is unique to Perspectives. Our atmosphere is modern and inviting, delivering care and attention from the kitchen to the table. In the summer months, our spacious patio offers one of the best views in the city overlooking The Marshes golf course and the Gatineau Hills. For those with a larger party, the private dining room offers a more intimate setting, yet the restaurant energy is still cultivated through its glass walls. At Perspectives we aspire to offer you the very best in contemporary cuisine and casual dining providing choice, flexibility, and value.
