Downtown Ottawa - Lebanese/Mediterranean Restaurants

Can anyone recommend a casual (fun/relaxed atmosphere) Lebanese or Mediterranean restaurant in the downtown Ottawa area? Looking for a place to have dinner and drinks with a group of 7-8 people tonight. Thanks in advance!

  1. We were at Bocado's and had a very good meal there - it was a weeknight, so the restaurant was a bit quiet.

    Also there's A'roma Meze - we've been wanting to try it but haven't had a chance. It's a tapas style restaurant with a great wine list - so perfect for a group of friends to spend a nice evening. Heard many good things about it. 239 Nepean Street.

    Hope that helps!


    1. I have been to A'roma three times and really like it. Lots of great dishes to choose from to suit all tastes and good wine list. The portions are not big. For 7-8 people, you'd probably look at getting at least 10 dishes to share. Tapas style.

      1. I'm too late, but I suggest Fresco/Cielo on Elgin. Or, if you don't mind being in no-man's-land, Kasbah Village on Laurier.
