Café Dario offers a fixed price menu with many interesting choices. Overall our party of six enjoyed their meals. The appetizers included escargots, sausages and grilled goat cheese. All were very good although the escargot dish was mainly mushrooms with a few snails. Main courses were also good although the duck was over cooked. Dessert was delicious. Portions are not... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere but is close to some new "out of downtown" hotels. I ventured there on a whim because it was really cold! I was quite pleased with the meal. Service was solid. They offered choices, recommendations, explanations; all good. The music was a bit different as a poor review suggested. I heard Phil... More

I think I've told at least 10 people about this restaurant since a board member at our firm recommended this restaurant to our CEO who treated me to lunch her during one of the cold winter days we had in February...it was unusually quiet as the waiter said weather had kept people away...lucky for us. Sure, the place is situated... More

Cafe Dario is a great place to have lunch or dinner. A small but quaint restaraunt with a limited but outstanding menu. During my last visit I enjoyed a meal of lamb chops with a curry sauce that was excellent. My guest and I were impressed with the quality of the meal. The service is courteous and friendly. A dining... More

We had reservations and were promptly seated. Service was excellent, and both my husband and I were pleased. Unfortunately, the server recommended the lamb for the main course. Big disappointment for me as it was drowning in the sauce; I understand ossobuco is cooked in a broth, but I was looking forward to the three cereal risotto - I would... More

I recently experienced Café Dario during “dine about” 2014. I made a reservation for myself and my friends. To my surprise, we still had to wait 30 minutes for our table, with a reservation. From the time that our reservation was made for (730pm) to the time we actually ordered (830), was a full hour. The server was absolutely amazing.... More

We decided to try Cafe Dario during Ciao's “Dining Out Winnipeg 2014,” where three course are offered by select restaurants for a flat rate of $28.00. It was a disappointing experience. First off, we were seated right by the door, where blasts of -24 degrees greeted our backs and our ankles every few minutes. When we asked to change seats,... More

We found Cafe Dario, this quaint little restaurant, by searching fine dining options in Winnipeg. After reading many really good reviews we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed in the very least. The restaurant is in a quaint little house and the atmosphere was warm and pleasant. There are 2 dining areas one that seats about... More

I had been to this restaurant for dinner about 2 years prior and found it charming, well-priced, and the food well-prepared. On this visit, our experience was less than great. My 2 friends had not been to this restaurant, and unfortunately, the experience did not provide motivation to return. We had made a reservation on a cold winter Friday evening.... More
