Came here for the first time today. Had the taco bar. It was horrible!!! Rice was wet and soggy, taco meat was so so. All in all for $12 a person I expected better food! Our waitress was horrible as well! Never coming back!

Great little eclectic restaurant in Ottawa. We had the lobster tacos which were pretty good--a little more lobster would have been nice though. The fried potato salad was amazing! Will return when we're in the area!
