Ive never written a review before, but after going to this restaurant I had to share my experience. My fiancee and I went here last night for the first time and we were both blown away! The food was delicious, the server was great and the restaurant was so cozy. For the appetizer I had the escargot diablo which was... More

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

Had the pleasure of visiting Cafe Dario with friends. The meal was amazing. From 5 courses you choose the appetizer, and entree. Large selection of entrees, such as lamb, duck, elk, venison, salmon, pork and beef I may have missed some. Good selection of wines as well. We would definitely go back. Be sure to make a reservation. The restaurant... More

Had lunch there today. My friend and I both went for the lunch special. The soup was great, the salad yummy. The main entree was passable. The mashed potatoes were laced with some sort of spice, the veal schnitzel was crusty and dry. The accompanied carrots were barely boiled and bland. My friend said that the chef usually does a...

How did I manage to live here my entire life and not dine here before? We had a 6:00 p.m. Reservation with some friends. Very quaint setting in what was once a home. The ambiance was very nice. This evening was a 3 course dinner. Some tasty appetizers to choose from, I had the delicious empanada. 5 or 6 entrees... More

I had a customer in town and we went to Cafe Dario for dinner. As always the food and service was excellent! I love this place as you can get one of the absolute best meals in Winnipeg for very affordable prices. A 5 course meal is $39/person and for what you get it is great value! There is also... More

Cafe Dario is a great place to have lunch. It seems to be a well kept secret in Winnipeg, yet everyone seems to know about it. Great selection for lunch, with a menu that changes frequently. For those that enjoy lamb, their lamb chops or rack of lamb are excellent choices for lunch, when on the menu. The food is... More
