Lovely bistro located on wine route and across from the Performing Arts Centre. We carry a large variety of VQA wines, many by the glass and even on tap. Hard time deciding? We also offer wine by the flight. We also have beer and cider on tap. Delicious and fresh, join us for tapas, for lunch, dinner or dessert, you will not be disappointed. We also have a boxed lunch option.

Great atmosphere

Very cosy, just what I needed for a lunch date! Service was okay, coffee was great, wine was tasty for this region. The food was nicely plated and decorated.

Had a most delightful dinner at Dani's. I had the salmon & it was served with a pasta that looked like couscous & both were delicious. Waitress was very good & very funny. My husband would have been happy going back every night. We were visiting from the States & went because of the Tripadvisor reviews. So glad we did.

The quality of the food is amazing here. If you enjoy fine dining at a reasonable price, then this is the place. Everything on this menu sounded delicious, and everything our table ordered was absolutely delicious. A word of warning though, as with all fine dining, it is quality over quantity. If you have a large appetite, then best to... More

We were going to Niagara Falls and decided to stop off in St Catharines. We had a very nice dinner at Dani's Bistro. The food was beyond amazing and the waitress was very attentive. We had dinner as well as desserts. Each of the three of us argued that our meal was best. We will definitely be returning to Dani's... More

What a great find. Dani's bistro came to our rescue. We were in need of an intimate setting to hold our son's Wedding Rehersal Dinner. Not coming from the area we had no idea where to go. So onto Tripadvisor I went. Dani's Bistro only had a few reviews back then, but they were all very good. I called, then... More

My husband and I were hungry after coming back across the border from Niagara. The Falls was too busy, so we headed towards St Catharine's and I did a TripAdvisor search of restaurants. Dani's was rated highly and looked good. We were so glad we went there. The bistro is lovely, the food was amazing and the entire experience was... More

My coworker and I ordered the box lunches, we both ordered the veggie wrap with pasta salad, I got the date square and they got cookies (1 chocolate and 1 oatmeal) and you get a drink. The portion size is perfect, and the price is very reasonable! I look forward to going to the restaurant next time.

Dinner out with my man. Love Dani's Bistro, a little gem of a restaurant in my own home town. Dinner feature was delicious and my hubby's salmon was awesome! Great local wine too!

My friends and I have met here for dinner a few times in the past and were often the only ones there. Very friendly staff; the wait on the food was a tad long..or maybe it seemed that way since I was staring at everyone else who already received theirs before mine. Otherwise, the food was great; very convenient location... More
