Bocado Ottawa Review

Have dined twice now at Bocado on Sommerset near Bank and thoroughly enjoyed both visits.

It's inside a beautiful old house typical of centretown with hardwood floors, exposed wood trim, bay windows, etc. Warm, cozy feel to the inside. Nice spacious layout and there is a terrace out front.

The food is mediterranean with some twists. Delicious stuff and tastefully presented. Moroccan lamb skewers with a nice yogurt sauce were perfectly cooked. The eggplant is also excellent. The gazpacho is refreshing and yummy. Have tried several other mains and enjoyed them all. Apps are $8-$10 and mains are around $22 to $28.

Simple wine list with some decent stuff by the glass.

Overall, a very nice addition to the neighbourhood and I enthusiastically recommend it.

  1. Thanks for this review. Would you recommend any of the other restaurants in that neighbourhood? I think there's an asian restaurant nearby that I've heard good things about.
