“Lunch at Le Bostaurus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

While touring Ottawa last week, we crossed the bridge to Province of Quebec and visited Aylmer for the first time. Famished, we were attracted by a sign on the Main Street, displaying a well-priced lunch and available parking. Expecting pub food, we soon realised that this may turn out to be quite a culinary experience and ‘make our day’. The beef and barley soup was hot and delicious. The panini were so fresh and delightful and the 'pièce de résistance' was a beautiful and exquisite and generous 'crème brûlée’ one of the best ones we ever had. The warmth of the place, patrons and all (especially on a cold winter day) insured a pleasant and friendly atmosphere including personal and efficient service. Hard to beat. It is such a pleasure to walk out from a restaurant satisfied and content with the food and service, the best formula. Must return to Australia however will be back next year to sample the next menu. Congratulations for understanding and pleasing customers.

Si vous cherchez de la bonne bouffe à Aylmer P.Q., n’hésitez-pas à visiter le restaurant Le Bostaurus. Nous y sommes arrivés que par hasard, après être attirés par une affiche sur la rue principale, offrant le déjeuner au prix seulement de $9.95 et du stationnement. Quelle joie de sortir de ce restaurant contenté et le désir d’y retourner à la prochaine occasion. Les proprios ont bien saisis que le succès d’un restaurant est d’offrir des mets délicieux et un service impeccable. N’y sortez-en pas sans avoir dégusté la Crème Brulée. Je doute fort bien que vous en soyez déçus.

“Great pub and steak house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Le Bostaurus is located in a newly-renovated 2-story heritage building in downtown Aylmer. The main floor is a nice pub with multiple HD TV's, several beers on draft - finally a nice place to go have a drink with friends in Aylmer! The second floor is a high-end steak house. The building is beautifully renovated / restored with the old stone walls and wood beam ceilings. We were 2 couples and tried the filet mignon and the ribeye steaks. All were cooked perfectly and fantastically tender. The accompanying vegetables and twice-baked potatoes were very good. They have a limited wine selection but enough to satisfy most people except maybe the real connaisseurs. We had no room left to try their desserts... The service was a bit slow but the place was packed so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt. The prices are in line with the other high-end steak houses in the Ottawa region.

Overall, this is a great place to go for drinks followed by a nice steak dinner. Long overdue in Aylmer!!!
