This restaurant is now called The Katmandu but it still retains the atmosphere of the Rocky Raccoon as my wife, who has visited it before, remarked. We ate here one evening and I can honestly say it is the strangest, most idiosyncratic, esoteric establishment I have ever had the pleasure to eat in! The owner is Nepalese and a real... More

So, two years ago we had an excellent meal and lovely evening in the Rocky Raccoon Cafe in Owen Sound and thought we would go back when we returned this past weekend. It was a mistake; we should have dined on memories! We arrived just as the last couple of diners was paying the check, but two hours before the... More

This restaurant made beautiful, homemade, curries, podadom, mushrooms and beef. The cook came out to discuss our order with us personally. I highly recommend it!

I have been eating at the Rocky Raccoon for many years. I have had private parties there,for myself and my young adult children. My son has severe food allergies and Robin has always gone out of his way to provide food for him. The food and the hospitality are always top class. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great food, great... More

The locals have told me what a great place to eat this was. However, I ordered the beef vindaloo. The service was polite and courteous but was very slow, and the meal was served on a tray. The beef was lacking something, bland would be the best way to describe it, and that is not something one would normally say... More

I have been trying to find an opportunity to go to Rocky Raccoon for some years now (I live about an hour away). Robin and his wonderful food have been well known to many people in the Bruce Peninsula area for many years. I finally found myself in Owen Sound last month around dinner time with my two kids, so...

While on our way home in Hamtramck we found Rocky Raccoon Cafe. Robin, the owner, made fresh homemade seasoned beef dumplings for us. I had the chicken soup and a wonderful curry. My boyfriend went with a vegetarian curry. Everything we ordered was well presented and delicious. If you're new to this type of cuisine, you'll have a wonderful time... More

We stumbled across the Rocky Racoon Café while touring the area. The exterior was not reflective of the gem we found inside. The mix of cultural fare on the menu was unique for the area. The Thai Coconut curry soup was perfectly seasoned. The Samosas had a delicate dough and a generous amount of filling. We even bought a jar... More

This is an awesome restaurant to eat at. They have amazing Samosas and the food is always fresh and great tasting. I love eating at small bistro type restaurants that are one of a kind and this is an awesome place to enjoy a great meal from a great chef!! Robin does an amazing job and offers wonderful Nepalese food.... More
