My wife and I went out for dinner and we were looking for something a little different from the usual chain restaurant. The night we were there is was very windy with rain and cold temperatures. After greeting us, the owner immediately went to the thermostat to turn up the heat. Despite the fact that the owner was working by... More

My husband and I walked into this cafe because it looked unique and we were looking for something different from the usual fare. Amazing. We had the soups (Thai chicken and Leek and Potato) and the Momo (beef dumplings). Everything had really unique flavours and was delicious. We talked to Robin, the owner, who told us stories about his homeland... More

I've been coming to Owen Sound for a couple of years now. When I discovered Robbie and his amazing skills I am a fan for life. I am so glad he is back. His chicken vindaloo with extra heat is amazing I've traveled a lot of the world and this would be in my top 10 favorite restaurants at all... More

Caesar salad - ok, a little overpriced; chicken curry was good, house wine was ok. Nothing special to write about, but an ok place for a dinner alone.

This restaurant is a great place for visitors who want to be guaranteed fresh, locally sourced food, and for locals who need a break from the same old, same old. This restaurant is now called the Katmandu Cafe, and the menu has been refreshed in the last six months. The food is an eclectic mixture of fresh, locally sourced Western... More

I was travelling on business to Owen Sound and wanted to eat out past 6 pm . In September there were not too many places open in this city past 6 pm, but Rocky Racoon Cafe was. Just by entering the restaurant you find yourself in a different cultural zone. The place is eclectic but it seems to have Zen\Buddhist\Tibetan... More

We discovered Rocky Raccoon (now the Kathmandu Cafe) years ago when they were located in Dyers Bay. We went in hoping to just get a quick hot dog or fries but left with a new love of Indian food that we still have to this day. Whenever we are in the Owen Sound area, usually once a year we will...

Really good food, unobstrusive music, accommodating service. One of the few spot in Owen Sound open at night.

Katmandu Cafe seemed to be one of the few places open in Owen Sound when we sought dinner after 7:00 pm. A small but intimate spot with friendly music, we were greeted warmly and tended to very well without the sort of 'nudginess' that seems more prevalent than ever. I ordered the lentil soup, most excellent, and their momos, also... More

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
