Explore our list of Ottawa restaurants that are some of the best the city has to offer.


Ottawa has become a dedicated foodie’s dream. In recent years, the food scene in Ottawa has seen some major changes thanks to the up-and-coming dining establishments that have been popping up all over the city.

Whether you’re in the mood for something traditional and local or distinctive and unusual, you’ll find a restaurant to suit your needs. With so many options to choose from, it’ll be difficult to decide where to eat next.

If you’re struggling to choose your next dining experience, look no further than this list of the best restaurants in Ottawa.

Gezellig

This trendy, affluent cafe serves sustainably minded and globally inspired cuisine that is a must-try for those who enjoy sweet and savoury foods.

Its high ceilings, blue walls, and colourful art greet you as you walk through the doors, which creates a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere while also maintaining an airy feel. You’ll find a range of internationally inspired dishes on the menu such as the pan-seared Quebec Duck Breast or the rillette of pickled mushrooms with peppercorn bread.

To end your wonderful meal, sample the dessert menu which features the delectable Butterfinger made with peanut butter and dark chocolate.

Atelier

Featured in Canada’s top 100 best restaurants, Atelier serves an incredible 12-course dinner. 

Chef Marc Lepine brings his experience from around the world to the kitchen, serving elevated food in the form of art. While twelve courses may seem intimidating, the chef continuously surprises his guests with unforgettable dishes that accommodate dietary restrictions and leaves people wanting more. 

Mystery plays a key element in your dining experience as the menu uses unique names that offer very little clue about what they are.

Fraser Cafe

Exposed metal, colourful furnishings, and a laid-back atmosphere makes this neighbourhood spot ideal for hanging out with friends. 

The traditional menu is made from locally sourced ingredients to make delicious food at a fair price. If you’re having trouble deciding what to eat, you can’t go wrong with the Mortadella Loafer, which contains mortadella, mushroom, red onion, and sunflower seed pesto. 

Beckta Dining & Wine

Regularly ranked as one of the best restaurants in Ottawa, Beckta Dining & Wine puts a twist on fine dining with a menu ranging from seafood to meat dishes. 

Unlike Atelier, you have the option of choosing your dinner a la carte or putting chef Michael Moffatt in charge of your dining experience with a tasting menu. With orange booths and blue carpets, the high-end restaurant has an unexpected, yet welcome retro 1970s vibe.
