We visited Fraser Cafe on a recommendation from a family member. The cafe is small and the tables are lined up against the wall and somewhat close to one another. While this seems awkward the personal dining experience still works. The servers were very attentive and the food is excellent. While there are entrees on a fixed menu I would... More

Went back to a favorite, and found the food fairly middling, unlike during the previous visits. Service was great. The bacon around the meat kitchen surprise special (pork tenderloin) should have been crispier, instead of stringy and raw-ish fat. The tenderloin itself, on the other hand, could have been a bit less cooked. A veg kitchen surprise should have really... More

Although the menu is not extensive, what they do have is prepared magnificiently. The service is second to none. The tables are somewhat close to each other but we never felt too crowded. The piece de résistance has to be the Donuts for desserts, a must have.

Went here with friends from work and was totally impressed. Loved the chill atmosphere. You instantly feel like you're in a place where food is a passion. I ordered the kitchen's choice from the menu as everything looked so good and seasonal, having this option made my life easier. The food was incredible, and the service was top notch. It... More

People who live in New Edinburgh have many choices to dine out. And new places are always popping up. The history of Frasers is such: Started where the Works was, then moved to where three other restaurants were and took over the property next door to create a place for people to celebrate parties on Monday night when the restaurant...

I was taken to Fraser Cafe for lunch by a co-worker and It was wonderful. The food is fresh and prepared with great care to be the best. I had the braised pork pie and it was fabulous. Tasted like it was baked just for me (which it was!). Save some room for the home made fresh doughnuts. Sinful :)... More

I travel to Ottawa frequently for work and have eaten at many restaurants. This is one of the best! It is a casual, relaxed at atmosphere that still serves top notch food. The menu is small but changes frequently. The best part about it is the Kitchen's Choice. You order and the chef will surprise you with something not on... More

We dined at Fraser's with our friends for the third time, and I can only speak volumes about this quaint & cozy restaurant. If you are a vegetarian or open to eating meats & fish, any choice you make will be a winner! Their dishes are all delectable and presented so beautifully. The staff is friendly, and very eager to...

I took my wife to the Fraser Café for a great birthday dinner last week! She enjoyed her BBQ Beef Striploin and my Kitchen's Choice Main turned out to be a very tasty Lingcod with a peach compote and slaw. We finished off with the Strawberry & Rhubarb pie for two. A wonderful celebratory evening with delicious food and very... More
