A friend and I tried the new Beckta for lunch - perfect on a cold winter's day. We shared a delicious brown fig starter with blood orange vinaigrette, and then she had mussels while I had the apparently crazy popular kale salad. Now I see why it's such a favourite, with its surprisingly light chick pea fritters, and bits of... More

A special anniversary dinner out, great opportunity to visit the newly relocated Becta’s in the formerly Friday's Roast Beef House a beautiful heritage building on Elgin Street that conserved the character and heritage of a beautiful place to dine. I love the wine bar definitely a Stephan Becta touch:) We were met at the door and had our coats taken... More

An epicurean delight... Everything, from the greeting to the "thank you for coming" was as exceptional and elegant as we expected. And what a beautiful location! Peter, our sommelier, made excellent (and unexpected) wine recommendations throughout the meal (a tall order, since we are both sommeliers). The service was first-class without being pretentious. I opted for the 3-selection cheese platter... More

Had the three course meal before the theatre. Every course a delight! Brownie dessert was the best dessert I have ever tasted anywhere on the planet. Service was perfect! Wine list suited me but not extensive. Love the decor. Coat check area is tight. Would go back again.

This was a special anniversary visit to the heritage building that was formerly Friday's Roast Beef House. With a few upgrades (wine bar at the back and kitchen on the second floor) this place still has the character and heritage that made it a beautiful place to dine. We were met at the door and had our coats taken prior... More

Yes Beckta is highly rated and therefore sets expectations high in advance but make no mistake - this is a truly great restaurant. I took a party of 6 business associates and we started with drinks at the wine bar in the rear of the restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice with both bar and table seating. We reviewed the...

Four of us eagerly awaited our night out. We are all foodies and delight in new tastes. Our coats were quickly taken and we were ushered to our table in a front room overlooking Elgin. The high ceilings and art by Andrew King with a view of the gently falling snow was comforting but somehow lacked a feeling of cohesiveness.We... More

OK, I'm not a food blogger nor a food expert, BUT I do like to eat and have dined in many places around the world. Who would know that one of the best meals I have eaten was in my home province? We had a 'tasting menu' where you select 4 savory and 1 dessert plates and the chef 'creates'... More

I have been to Beckta's now 3 times and once to Gezellig a restaurant run by the same owner. I have anticipated great food based on reputation. I have been very disappointed each and every time. Initially I thought it was just bad luck and kept returning expecting more. It has not happened. My last visit was organized by someone... More

Our first visit to the new Beckta for a special anniversary and we were not disappointed. We knew in advance of the limited menu options and selected the three course dinner. All aspects of our selections were delicious and served in an most efficient manner. The attention of the wait-staff, especially Michelle, helped to make the meal most enjoyable. Although... More
