This is a course based restaurant, with each plate which is placed in front of you is one joy after the other. Reasonably priced (especially the lunch) for chef prepared cuisine. There aren't many places where you can enjoy perfectly cooked lamb dishes in the city so I find it to be an extra treat... read more

Visited Cafe Dario with a business acquaintance for lunch. We had arrived just after the lunch hour. My friend ordered the bison and I ordered the lamb shank. I think I got the last one. What a treat! My friend thoroughly enjoyed the bison and makes a point of ordering it when he is in Winnipeg and visiting Cafe Dario.... More

As said in the reviews this place is truly a hidden gem! If you've never been this is a place to check out. I had the bison and it was cooked great and tasted great too. Good dining experience!

First off, I like the location of this restaurant. I don't often think to eat in the area and am happy I did! There was a lot of street parking and it was easy to get to. I was by myself, so I brought a book. The service was good - and I really liked the menu they had that... More

To put it simply, I love Cafe Dario! Ever since finding this hidden gem it has been one of my top 2 Winnipeg restaurants. My friend and I enjoyed some amazing rack of lamb & duck breast, all cooked perfectly. I highly recommend the Escargot Diablo as an appetizer, it is to die for if you enjoy spicy food. As... More

Located at the corner of Wellington and Erin, this bright mustard coloured house houses a pretty unique little restaurant. The building is small and old, but has quite a bit of character. Outdoor seating is available. The menu offered interesting choices for appetizers and main entrees. Wine list was good and the red wine was chilled a bit, which was... More

Quaint small restaurant Serving staff professional but not bothersome Pay a single price for a 5 course dinner. Good selection far from ordinary. Appetizer and soup delicious but salad was plain. Main course delicious, our party had steak, chicken and lamb. You are very full after eating here. Chef and owner comes and chats with you and is very friendly.

I haven't been here for something like ten years, but it was just as good as I remember it. Had the Escargot and the tenderloin, both were great.

Food was excellent, portions were great, price fixed menu but a ton of choices. Roasted tomato soup absolutely delicious. The restaurant is not very big so best to make a reservation. The food came piping hot which doesn't happen all that often anymore. Service was very good and prompt and was very helpful with helping us choose our meals. Lots... More
