“Comfortable rest stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Centrally located, offers a variety of menu items and a cool drink to take a break from being a tourist or shopping. Clean, freindly staff and food was good. Not too noisy as some bar/pubs can be. We had a couple appies, lighter fare and was just what we needed. Reasonably priced. Won't wow you but shouldn't disappoint either.

“Great place for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Stumbled upon the place while searching for a place to grab a quick bite for lunch.
Staff were eager to please and so happy. The food was great as well, especially the asparagus appetizer. I had the fish and chips which were one of the best I have had in a while.

“Fine for a respite while shopping at Reidel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

We stopped in for an afternoon rest stop. Service was friendly. Drinks were expensive given the decor of Exchange, but drinks in Ottawa are expensive.

“Fine for a quick bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Stopped for a quick dinner so we could make it to the light show on Parliament Hill. Had the steak salad. The meat was a bit fatty so I had to cut away from most of it. For 2 salads - $50.
