Went for brunch. Very delicious eggs benedict with authentic hollandaise sauce. They serve organic tea and free run eggs. The potatoes were very tasty and had a pinch of spice. Service was attentive and polite. Has a jazzy atmosphere.Would go back again.

The Ouisi is a New Orleans style place that is quite authentic. We generally go there for jazz fest and have a great night out. However this year we were very disappointed in our experience. The usual great service has gone down hill. We did not seem to get the attention that we have seen in past years. The food... More

We had heard that the crab cakes were great so wanted to try them. Disappointing. The corn chutney was ok. The corn bread was stale. The poutine with the cajun sauce was too soggy and the sauce was bitter. The service was great.

Had been wanting to try Ouisi Bostro for years. It has been in the same location as long as I can remember so thought it must be a "well oiled machine" when it comes to both food and service. Sadly that was not the case. The server who went through the motions of serving our table, on a night when... More

My friends and I sat out back in a cute secluded patio and enjoyed dinner together. The seafood creole was delicious as was the dessert! The inside decor was very jazzy and had an ambient mood. Overall it was a nice experience!

Located on bustling Granville Avenue, the menu is mostly egg-related dishes, at least at lunch/brunch time. Servings are generous, but there's not much "panache" about the food, it's very run-of-the-mill. I had a veggie frittata, no potatoes in it, which I consider to be an integral ingredient of any frittata, but it was OK.

Excellent food, service, menu choices and service and the decor was so artsy. We loved the original paintings on the wall and the eclectic look of the restaurant. We came for the live music which began at 9 pm...it was very good. Will go back again.

This is not a fancy place but a quaint little bistro on south Granville. It is neat and clean and gives you a cozy feeling. We were served by the owner or manager I believe? He was very accomodating as there was a very large group coming in after us. From the seafood creole to the Po' boy sandwich to... More

With neighbourhood parking and on a major bus route the Ouisi is an easy destination for anyone looking for very good Creole or Cajun food in a relaxed pub-like environment. The food strikes a perfect balance between spicy and flavourful. The creole gumbo is highly recommended especially when preceded by an appetizer of Cajun chicken wings. We were there on... More

The restaurant was hopping on Sunday night with live music and some great food. I had the Big Easy - beef tips in a spicy sauce. Others had the Seafood Gumbo and the Jambalaya. All good and hearty eating. Service was good and helpful.

Neighborhood Profile
South Granville
The neighbourhood closest to the airport, a generous mix of locals and tourists populate the area. The blend has made it a go-to spot to find an eclectic collection of entertainment, from theatres and cinemas, to antique stores and last-minute kitsch souvenir shops. It gives off a transient vibe, and is one of the more higgledy-piggledy areas in terms of what you'll find, making it a fun area to explore and map out, all while taking in the hectic atmosphere of people coming and going, while others look for the best ways to spend their last few hours in the city.
