Great food - time and time again

I've been to Flying Piggy's multiple times. When we have guests visit (family or friends) it's a go to staple to bring them here. One thing I suggest, ALWAYS go for their specials as they are always incredible and crafted with an art. One of the great things is they hand make everything - so note... read more

I don't know what it is about Ottawa, but amazing restaurants here are far and few between after having lived in the GTA. I don't find that this restaurant is charming - at all. I find the decor to be extremely outdated and the restaurant as a whole to be unattractive. We've eaten in the restaurant once, and ordered take... More

One of those out of the way spots worth a try! Expect for your food to take a long time. Not because the service is slow but because everything is made from scratch to order. Staff is very friendly and helpful in making suggestions or adapting menu items to meet your taste. We tried the Blue Cheese Escargot for appetizer.... More

This restaurant has been around for years and has never failed to deliver a wonderful meal. It's a small venue in an old house set back from the busy road a bit. A reservation is probably a good idea.

We used a Groupon, about which the staff was very gracious. The antipasti salad (arugula, goat cheese, and nuts) was splended. For the main course we both had duck breast, which was served with an excellent sauce and a delicious combination of fingerling potatoes and red cabbage. Our only criticisms are that the duck breast was cooked a little more... More

Tried this restaurant a short while back for dinner with family. Atmosphere was fine, service was polite but after we received our food, service was hard to find. Talking about food, even though the food was good it took quite a long time to get it. From the time we ordered to the time we had it in front of... More

Our server made several small errors that detracted a bit and the decor tries to be quirky but just falls short. I had the thyme and ricotta gnocchi with a rose sauce and chicken added - the gnocchi was absolutely fabulous! Two of our party had one of the specials with beef brisket which was quite tasty but a bit... More

I recently ate at the Flying Piggy's on a recommendation from my hotel. The resturant is a small place set back from the road. The staff was friendly and seated us right away even though we didn't have a reservation. The decor is a little dark for my liking but it is tastefully done and pleasing. The waiter took our...

We chose this place to celebrate our wedding anniversary and made a reservation based on the very good reviews. The hostess encouraged us to eat on the patio, where there are a half dozen tables and a cute little herb garden. The service was excessively slow - not to take the orders, but it took about twenty minutes to get... More
