Excellent evening - esp on a gift card

Bekta has moved from the centre town old house to a very historic location (Grant House) on Elgin Street. I was not impressed with the decor in the old house but they have done an excellent job in keeping it simple and still maintaining the historic feel of the "new" location. We chose the... read more

To start with, it is in a beautiful house, and the restaurant was accommodating in getting us in and out of dinner before a theatre production at the NAC across the street. However, the decor lacks attention to detail. It was mid December, Christmas time, and the decoration in the table was a solitary gourd that looked out of place... More

The service was slow and the food undercooked. This place would not pass for fine dinning in any other major city.

We had decided to celebrate our anniversary and Valentine's at Beckta since we had visited their old location a few years ago and had enjoyed the experience. The renovated Grant House looks awesome and adds to the experience. The restaurant has a couple of separate rooms and the tables are laid out well so that your fellow diners aren't too... More

I'm not sure why the chef served a biscuity lump with each course, but rather sets the scene. Pretensious food with seemingly, more emphasis on presentation than substance. It was with a vague sense of disappointment that, after three courses, I came away hungry. The only thing that saved the evening for me was the helpfulness and knowledge, genially shared... More

An establishment that caters to those who are gluten sensitive or allergic. Felt happy to know that were confident in providing us with Gluten free Substitutes. We ate in the bar area and loved the decor. The front side of the restaurant is entirely decorated differently but both are quite classy. The servers are attentive and the food was portioned...

A lunch for two friends who have previously been to the sister restaurants, gezellig and play. Beckta is a real treat, and well priced for the quality of the food, the scrupulous service, and the overall ambience. Mine was a soup to start (could not resist cream of sunchokes), which was delicious and not too rich, topped with toasted pine... More
