“Fabulous burgers and great local beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The burgers here are absolutely fantastic and the the Kichesippi dark beer is highly recommended! Service is great. It fills up fast for lunch, so reservations might be a good idea...

“Good Burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

We had the "Frida & Diego" burger and it was really good, not the best I've eaten but still good. It comes with a small side of fries and salad. The salad dressing was nice and the bun was good although it was too big for the patty. Not too pricey ($13) which is good!

“Great Burgers! Nice relaxing ambiance!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

If you are in downtown Ottawa - This place should definitely be on your list. The burgers are some of the best I've had (That's a bold statement - but true). The ambiance is quite relaxing and the service is super friendly. Highly recommend.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The food is simple, fresh, delicious and decently priced. We frequent this establishment, and are consistently greeted warmly, always receiving superb service no matter the night. We have been coming to this restaurant for years and it has consistently been one of our favourites. The jukebox is a nice addition, adds a little ambiance and plays some great music at a reasonable decibel. Highly recommend this restaurant.

“Fun Venue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This little gem tucked away off Dalhousie away from the regular tourist set is a fun, upbeat place to enjoy good wine or beer and light and imaginative cuisine. Proust and James Joyce on the walls give an idea of the character of the place. We had the fun of spotting a CBC Ottawa personality while there; the clientele is young and mixed. Fills quickly at 5:00 p.m. We visited twice in our week in Ottawa, loved it both times.
