Interesting and different little restaurant!

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... read 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

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...
