I'm not sure why I never wrote a review when we visited some time ago, I see that Cafe Dario is making its way up the top ten and it's well deserved. Any out of town person looking up unique places to dine in Winnipeg must visit Cafe Dario. Local fare and fabulous flavor in a unique charming unpretentious atmosphere... More

We visited as a group of six. Quite the exotic and extensive menu selections (this is good). Service was fast, friendly and frequent. All the meals were delivered simultaneously so no one had to wait.The courses were well paced, Next time we might try for the outdoor patio seating. They even had lemonade, this is not easy to find in... More

we are front out of town however have driven past this place several times and decided to stop in for lunch. I had the Lamb shank and my wife had the crusted Salmon - both were very good. The side dishes were almost as exciting as the main, the soup (included) was very good and the bread basket was flavourful.... More

Anniversary dinner during mid week and after reading previous reviews decided to try Cafe Dario. Could not have been more pleased. 5 course meal did not only offer interesting and unique choices but could not be more reasonable in price considering the creative meal appetizers and entrees (with before dinner drinks and a mid priced bottle of wine our bill...

The Escargot Diablo is like none I have ever tasted. Big bold flavour , red hot chilli peppers and a trio of cheese. I had the duck breast and my wife had the rack of lamb. Both entrees rocked or socks off tender ,tasty and the mashed potatoes had a strong peppery flavour that I really enjoyed.

This restaurant in a small, old mustard-colored house looks more like a cheap cafe than a high class place, but don't be deceived. The menu is as varied as anyplace in town with duck and rabbit, among a choice of 8, as appetizers plus venison and bison as entrees. You choose your appetizer and entree, but the soup, salad and...

My client invited me for lunch to a restaurant he had just heard about. It looked like a house located on the corner of Erin St had been converted to a restaurant, there was parking allowed on the street as well there was a parking area behind the restaurant. It was not busy that day and we were seated immediately.... More
