We've been eating here since it opened. It has been consistently high quality. Prices are a little higher than the venue warrants but the service is excellent; you are frequently served by the owner who is very personable. Staff are well informed and very pleasant. The food quality is excellent. The basic menu isn't extensive but the items on the... More

Located beside the Freshmart in Chelsea, this restaurant offers sea food and fish dishes. They have lobster bisks, sea food chowders, fish and chips with minted peas. Its good food although i find it is a bit expensive.

Don't let the strip mall put you off! This p,ace doesn't look like much but the meal was great. We had wild boar sausage and the meat was rich and savoury. It came with crispy tasty fried and lovely fried onions. We also had the Portuguese cod stew which had a nice piquant flavour. The wait staff was very attentive... More

Inviting service but we ordered fish and chips and a Thai salad. The Thai salad was deceitful and expensive. Little sea food and way too much cabbage. Not worth $20. The fish and chips was okay but I prefer Halibut, they serve cod. Besides the food that we didn't enjoy, the atmosphere and service was great.

Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry you found the Thai salad disappointing - quite honestly, we have never had a complaint such as yours about this extremely popular dish. We serve cod because it is fresh, sustainable and affordable. Halibut from the east coast is not sustainable and Pacific halibut is very expensive - far too costly... More

This was recommended as a great fish restaurant. We were not disappointed! It is partway down a little strip mall but very nice, warm and friendly on the inside. We were 4 and had the frito miso which is onion rings and calamari. Not chewy, just perfect. I had the fish and chips with the thai salad as an extra.... More

Unassuming from the outside, this cozy family-run restaurant in a strip mall will surprise you with delicious, and freshly prepared food. Famed for its fish and chips, Le Resto is a regular on our visits to Ottawa and my family has been coming here for years. James and Lynn are welcoming and the food is fantastic and authentic with a... More

Thank you for your positive comments. Unfortunately we cannot get the same marrowfat peas here in Canada that we are used to using across the pond but hey, you work with what you've got. Hope to see you again soon! More
