Terrific!

We were a group of 9 friends who went to lunch at Aroma Meza for the first time. We did not know the menu or the dishes, so we left it up to our server to suggest. We had five courses and we were unanimous that we enjoyed then all. My favourite was a dish with gnocchi, cheese and wild... read more

Too expensive for mediocre food. Would have given it more stars if priced appropriately. Visited aromas in 2014 and have not gone back since. The server was very friendly but did not explain very well the pricing per tapas.

Aroma Meze is a perfect way to spend a relaxed few hours with friends. The small plates offer a wonderful variety of options. And having small portions of many foods makes for an entertaining and fun evening—lots of different flavours to explore.

The food is highly authentic Greek. The flavour is fantastic. Since you get to try multiple things, you get a great experience. It's Greek dim-sum. The service is very friendly and the price is decent although not cheap. It's in a great little house and there is parking out back. One of my favourite finds in Ottawa.

Excellent flavour, and loved the small dishes giving you an opportunity to try and enjoy many options. Service and venue were equally enjoyable.

We made a same day reservation at this restaurant. This was a great experience. The servers explained the concept of the menu and were very knowledgeable and passionate about their food. The chef decides the order of service. We were in no way rushed and spent an enjoyable couple of hours relaxing and having great conversation. The food is well... More

Courteous, informed table staff, deliciously tasty dishes coming perhaps a little too close together.... Nice to get up from table comfortably fed, with a good memory of some 'different' flavours, and not over-fed. We intend to return when we can! Such careful cookery (the octopus was exceptionally good) in a Capital city; I thought the price was very reasonable. $70... More

I was visiting Ottowa with my partner and we wanted a restaurant for a date night. My partner is Greek so this kind of food is always a risk! But it is also our favourite cuisine so we went for it. The food was fabulous. The spanakopita is great, as is the cazuela. The chargrilled octopus was another highlight, although... More

Went for a prix fixe on Valentine's day last year. Service was good, food was above average. Have been back again for an a la carte dining experience later in 2015. On all occasions I enjoyed my meal, but it wasn't anything memorable. Worth checking out if you have already visited a few of the other top picks in Ottawa.

Great restaurant! If you haven't been, make sure to visit in 2016. A group of 4 of us shared about 6 mouth watering dishes. The 'From the earth" dishes were prepared to perfection. The desserts were to die for! The service was fantastic. Our server's suggestions were amazing. We will be back!
