This weekend we went to this restaurant as we were given coupons, thought we were going to try it out, unfortunately, the restaurant has been closed .... Wonder if we still have the opportunity to use the coupons. There was a notice on the door but it was not under the name of Domuscafe. Could we get an answer to... More

I went here with customers for dinner and we were really satisfied with the excellent service, food was great and interesting local Canadian wines. We even returned 2 days later and were as satisfied as the first time. This is one of the best restaurants to go to in Ottawa.

Unfortunately, this long time, top-notch Ottawa restaurant has closed its doors for good. A loss to the Ottawa restaurant scene.

I recently went to back to Domus Café (now renamed John Taylor at Domus Café) for lunch. Again, the quality of the food used in preparing the meal is exceptionnal. The use of regional products in creating the menu makes this restaurant stands out in the crowded restaurant scene in the market. I had the gnocchi's and was not dissapointed,... More

Was here several years ago and was not disappointed with this visit. Server extremely knowledgeable. Superb restaurant that uses local growers for a truly “Canadian” menu. Casual yet elegant dinning room in the heart of the ByWard Market. My guest enjoyed an outstanding cooked arctic char while I went the way of le lapin (the rabbit). Magnificent experience!

Some friends were in town from Montreal, so Domus is my "go to" place for out-of-towners who appreciate fine and imaginative cuisine. The menu is regional Canadian cuisine always done creatively and oh so tasty. My friends both chose the Seafood pie with horseradish creme fraiche, Mirabel greens and citrus onion marmalade which they both enjoyed. I chose the Coast... More

Friendly - but not too friendly service; good wine; great food; a bit pricey. A John Taylor restaurant.

We had a fabulous meal on Valentine's day. Everything was excellent other than it was a bit expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

This is a terrific restaurant where the service is friendly, relaxed and yet very professional. The mushroom bisque was excellent and all four of us had the lamb shank special with varying opinions.....good but a little too well done for one of us! The creme brulee was exceptional! Will absolutely go back again......

Just happened across this place as walking through the Byward Market area. Looked good, wasn't busy (as it was an early weekday night) so we went in. Had an excellent steak and triple cooked chips with a particularly good Canadian red wine (so good we had to have another bottle). This was my first visit to Canada in many years... More
