Ottawa Eats

I'm headed to Ottawa on business tomorrow and was looking for a new place to try. Somewhat casual, laid back, fun atmosphere. I have meetings all day and don't want to sit in a stuffy restaurant for a long meal. Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

  1. Went to this place several months back and really enjoyed the food, menu is now different from when I was there but I would recommend it, easy going atmosphere with great food,

      What about Benitz Bistro, have you been there? What do you think?

      The Wellington
      1325 Wellington St W, Ottawa, ON K1Y3B6, CA

      327 Somerset St W, Ottawa, ON K2P0J8, CA

    2. If a pub atmosphere sounds good to you, then I'd recommend the Manx Pub on Elgin. Great food, good beer (and scotch) and always a crowded and lively atmosphere. The only problem might be finding a table.

      1. We liked The Abbey - casual, decent food, great beer selection.

        1. delicious bar and grill rocks if your on the outskirts. there is one on st joe's in orleans and one in bells corners. i've been eating there since the first one opened years ago.
